The group Community Voters' Project fired workers for an estimated 16 fraudulent registration cardsm including signing up someone who'd been dead for 10 years. Milwaukee Election Commission Executive Director Sue Edman adds their Special Registration Deputies have sworn in nearly 12 thousand voters and only six individuals have submitted questionable documents.
"You have 11 hundred people who are doing it right and just a handful of people who are just not doing the right thing."
Some of those accused six are with another group, the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) who last week announced it fired a dozen people after finding fraud in up to 300 forms.
Regarding the questionable papers, Edman says the Commission gives input to prosecutors to what possible deception it considers more "egregious" than others.
In both cases, Election Commission says it stopped the alleged fraud before it could take place at the polls.
The probe into the workers among both of these liberal leaning activist groups is likely to spark more debate on the issue of Voter ID's. Republicans say fraud such as this is why the state needs to make voters show photo ID's at the polls. Democrats say the interception of the fake documents show that the system's working just fine.
