Since the GOP consistently shows little regard for ethics, the State Constitution, or the Wisconsin Statutes, here is some more required reading….
CHAPTER 12 – PROHIBITED ELECTION PRACTICES
Chapter 12 Wisconsin State Statutes
12.05 False representations affecting elections. No
person may knowingly make or publish, or cause to be made or
published, a false representation pertaining to a candidate or referendum
which is intended or tends to affect voting at an election
Now, Senator Fitzgerald, what is it you don’t understand? The laws of Wisconsin are not mere guidelines for your manipulation, the law is the law.
Why must you obey the law? Failure to do so is a very bad example for children and a disgrace to all the people of Wisconsin. Families have loved ones who have served, fought, and died for Democracy. Democracy exists due to the preservation of each person’s right to vote. Elections are regulated by law to insure that every person’s vote is counted – once.
You do not have the right to take the process that people have fought and died for and turn it into a side show carnival, by boosting of using “spoiler candidates” from your opposing party on the Democratic ballet. This is (read the statute) knowingly publishing or causing to be made or published, a false representation pertaining to a candidate or referendum.
Don’t you see how this is a disgrace to veterans?
