Wisconsin Tea Party advocates committing felony to stop Walker recall
Tea Party and other right wing residents of Wisconsin are apparently planning to try and stop the recall of Scott Walker by collecting signatures on recall petitions and then destroying them. This is because state law indicates an elector can only sign a recall petition ONCE.
However, state law also makes it clear that tampering with petitions is a Felony.
Madison — The kick off campaign to recall embattled governor Scott Walker kicks off in just four days and with that date approaching, the tea party has plans of its own. Politiscoop has received several screen shots of tea party and right wing activists planning to pass themselves off as those circulating petitions to recall the governor.
In one facebook post a user named Charles Atlas Shrugging begins the plan by saying “I’d like to collect signatures of those who want to recall Walker…so I can have something to feed my shredder..”
In another such post Matt Wynns who claims to be a small business owner states “I shall be heating my home with recall signature. as they sign, I’ll make sure to tell them not to sign another petition. I figure I can get a hundred to a few hundred signatures off the ballot. F*#&* (Word edited) Liberals.
The list of disgusting posts go on, even after a user reminded each and every one of them that their plans would violate Wisconsin statutes.
