Republican Robert Monroe who was charged with 13 felony counts of voter fraud.
Monroe cast two ballots in the April 2011 Supreme Court election, two in the August 2011 Alberta Darling recall election, five in the Scott Walker-Tom Barrett recall, one illegal ballot in an August 2012 primary, and two ballots in the November 2012 presidential election.In the presidential election, Monroe cast an in-person absentee ballot in Shorewood on Nov. 1 and drove a rental car to Lebanon, Ind., where he showed his Indiana driver's license to vote in person on election day, Nov. 6, the complaint charges. Monroe owns a house there, according to the complaint.Being a typical Wisconsin Republican, means that Mr. Monroe refuses to take responsibility for his actions and even plans on pleading insanity.
As we know there is more, there is always more:
Monroe blamed the double, and once quintuple, votes in 2011 and 2012 on fugue states, or periods of disassociative disorder. He blamed his disorder on a long series of life events, from watching his father have a heart attack at age 8 and surviving a serious car crash in high school, to witnessing sexual misconduct by a priest in college and the fallout of his brother's murder in 2000.
For the defense to succeed, Monroe, his psychiatrist and attorneys must convince Cimpl that Monroe's mental disease or defect prevented him from appreciating the wrongfulness of his votes or from conforming his actions to election laws.
To Monroe's claim that he didn't follow politics and wasn't even a regular voter, Landgraf asked Monroe about several emails and texts he shared with family and friends urging them to vote, inquiring about donating to candidates, requesting an absentee ballot in his son's name, critiquing unions and getting subscription messages from Americans for Prosperity, a group that supported GOP candidates and issues.
I would like to testify in Mr. Monroe's behalf. Anyone who listens to Americans for Prosperity for actual information and works that hard, to vote for a guy who wants to wall off Canada, does not have all of their brain functions.
Unfortunately for Mr. Monroe, Milwaukee County has had such poor leadership the last few years that the Mental Health system there leaves plenty to be desired.
PS: One last note, not a single law the Republicans have passed in Walkers regime, would have stopped this. However, as has been pointed out numerous times, we do not need new laws to catch voter fraud we already have them and they work fine.
