    Ah those tricky Wisconsin Republicans!


    6 fake Democrats force Wis. primaries in recalls targeting incumbent GOP seats over unions law


    MADISON, Wis. - The first recall elections targeting nine Wisconsin state senators for their positions on Republican Gov. Scott Walker's divisive union rights restrictions pitted six fake Democrats on Tuesday against Democratic incumbents supported by the party.

    The winners will advance to take on incumbent Republicans targeted for recall on Aug. 9.

    The state Republican Party orchestrated the placement of the fake Democrats on Tuesday's ballot, thereby delaying the general election for a month. That gave the Republican incumbents more time to campaign and distance themselves from the turmoil over the union law that they voted to support in March, spurring the recall efforts

    I wonder how much money that move will cost Wisconsin voters? I thought the Wisconsin GOP was all about saving tax payers money and cutting the state's deficit. I guess not!

    They also sent out fliers to try to get voters to vote for the fake Dems and there was even an outside group which had a robocall telling voters in one district not to bother voting because they'll have a mail-in ballot sent to them.

    This is standard operating procedure. Politics is a shady business.

    :wtf:
    Well I for one am relieved that the DNC would NEVER stoop to such levels and interfere with the primaries of the GOP! Oh, perish the thought.

    :rolleyes:

    Well, they DIDN'T in this case. It's only the Wis GOP which pulled this crap.

    And the DNC has in the past pulled stuff. The point is we are in the present and the GOP was suppose to be the saviors of fiscal responsibility to the state of Wisconsin. This will hurt them more than help them.

    Democrats are upset that they actually have to have a primary? Does it suck that much to have an actual choice instead of just voting for the person your party leaders selected behind closed doors?

    But I thought Republicans didn't like "Voter Fraud"!!!!!!!!!

    Remember all the ranting about Acorn? Oh wait, that wasn't "voter fraud". Because Mickey Mouse and Dumbo never showed up to vote. That's just right wingers being "Goofy".

    Results are coming in and all the fake Democrats are losing.

    Republicans are trying to drag this out no matter how much it costs the public. They hope to pass redistricting to keep them in power before the new general election.

    Hmmm, this seems like "buyer's remorse".

    Poor idiot child, Republicans admitted putting up these fake Democrats. This wasn't the Democrats choice, but Republican choice FOR Democrats. You guys are so dumb, seriously, how do you keep from tying your shoes together in the morning?
