An attorney filed a complaint Thursday with state election officials to kick six fake Democrats off the ballot in the upcoming recall elections. Six Republicans posing as Democrats filed paperwork to run in the recall elections against Gov. Scott Walker and five other GOP officials. The effort was concocted to ensure all general elections are on the same day, June 5. If they had not executed their plan or one like it, some of the general elections would have occurred on May 8, when the primary will be held to determine which Democrat runs against Walker. But the plan violates state election law, said the filing from Milwaukee attorney Jeremy Levinson. He asked the state Government Accountability Board to boot the six from the ballot. The board is to meet on the matter on Tuesday. “The respondents falsified information on these documents, asserting that the six phony primary candidates were ‘affiliated’ with and ‘represent’ the Democratic Party,” the filing said.
“Respondents have admitted that the six phony candidates are seeking ballot placement on behalf of the (Republican Party) in an overt and blatant effort to manipulate the upcoming elections to protect and advantage the Republican incumbents facing recall.” Ben Sparks, a spokesman for the Republican Party, said he was confident the candidates would remain on the ballot. He noted last year six such protest candidates the party ran as Democrats were placed on the ballot in recall elections against Republican state senators.
