Dems a Day Late and a Dollar Short on Voter Fraud Allegations

Rick Graber Statement Re: Special Prosecutor's Decision that Democrats were Wrong on Voter Fraud Allegations in 33rd District Assembly race:

"While it's good to see that state Democrats are finally focusing on weeding out voter fraud, it turns out they are a day late and a dollar short. It is unfortunate they chose to turn the serious issue of voter fraud into a purely political stunt. As it turned out, their baseless allegations against Republican candidate Scott Newcomer backfired on them. As they are surely aware by now, the special prosecutor who was appointed to handle their complaint determined that Newcomer followed appropriate procedures in voting from his Delafield address and "did not violate Section 12.13 (1) of the Wisconsin Statutes." The Dems may want to look before they leap next time and be more diligent in getting their facts straight. The voters of Wisconsin deserve better."
