True the Vote Projects Less Than Half of 1.5 + Million Walker Recall Petitions will be Eligible

True the Vote issued a press release today detailing preliminary results of their recall analysis. While the unions will likely get the approximately 540,000 petitions they needed to force a recall vote against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, hundreds of thousands of submitted petitions had problems. Following is the breakdown:

Total Number of Pages Submitted  


 x 10 records/page (many left blank)  


Actual Records  


Blank Lines  


Unique Records  


    Incomplete / Indecipherable Records  


    Sign Date Out of Range  


    Out of State  


    Duplicate Signatures  


Total Ineligible Signatures  


Total Signatures for Further Investigation*  


Total Eligible Signatures based on data available


* Signatures that were partially marked through, illegible, possibly false, mismatched or otherwise compromised

The organization responsible for the recall is United Wisconsin, a PAC backed by the usual suspects: the National Education Association’s Wisconsin affiliate, the American Federation of Teachers, AFSCME, a “progressive” group named One Wisconsin Now, and the Wisconsin Democrat Party. Well funded, the group used Cloward-Piven swamping tactics to overwhelm the tiny Wisconsin Government Accountability Board – tasked with certifying the recall – with questionable petitions. Not surprisingly, GAB announced they would make only spot checks, claiming they didn’t have the manpower for a full review.

But a full check was in order as many inconsistencies immediately appeared. The number of blank, incomplete, invalid and outright fraudulent petitions makes clear United Wisconsin’s intentions. One Democrat even appears to have entered his brother’s name four separate times. His brother was against the recall. He also signed up his mother, other family members and possibly even neighbors without their assent or knowledge. The entire effort recalls the familiar Democrat battle cry: “Win, even if you have to sell your mother.”

The big news here, however, is the massive, rapid response to assure the legitimacy of this recall, and the groundswell of support it received from all over the country. Partnering with Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty and We the People of the Republic, True the Vote created an online platform for processing and checking the 1.5 + million petitions. A call went out and over 14,000 volunteers from 49 states responded to help input the data. They have so far analyzed over 91 percent of the records in 22 days! The system uses a triple-blind check to assure accuracy. Each petition has been independently reviewed an average of 2.67 times.

Everywhere I go I hear the same question from concerned Americans: “What can we do?” True the Vote has created the perfect answer, a system that allows you to pitch in from the comfort and safety of your own home. There is yet more work to do and they are still looking for volunteers.

Vote fraud is the most important battle we have to face this year. Wikileaks has just revealed that the Democrats engaged in massive fraud in 2008. 2012 will be worse. Now is the time to jump in.

  1. Wikileaks may very well turn out to be our best defence partnered with official offices that do the counting, in by the fact that Wikileaks can back up the findings with things like Cloward-Piven, which I am very knowlegable about in that this is what Obama is using to crush our economy. Obama is spending to the point where benefits are being created by one law after another where after awhile it overwelms the government with so much to try to keep up with, it collapses the system. That is Cloward-Piven.

    If you don’t know about these guys, look them up. They are two professor’s from the 50’s and 60’s who cooked up this idea and immediately were called in by Democrats who were interested in their plan. Sure, they would be. And cheating on voter ballots is Democrat specialty. It did get bad during ’08 when after the ’06 elections the Democrats found out that no one was going to do anything to them about their cheating. So in ’08 they didn’t even try to cover it up. ACORN was so obvious with their cheating I’m surprised the FBI didn’t shut all their offices down, even though some were. Here in my home town 8,000 ballots were collected from the ACORN agent office. After the ballots were looked at, over 5,000 were thrown out because they were either outright fraudulant, or something else was bad wrong with them.

    And yes, I agree. It is going to be worse this year because ACORN is not gone. They just changed their name and I can’t remember what it is, but it’s the old ACORN just like they were. The FBI is supposed to be the one’s to catch and prosecute these people, but for some reason they only find a few. These Democrats should be scared to death to cheat, and until we demand these people be imprisoned, and Republican’s arrest Democrats who are behind the cheating, it will keep going on.

    I believe over half of the Democrats who are in office shouldn’t be there and the Republican’s who ran against them should be who won. But then the Democrats wouldn’t be in control, would they?
