Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler Allowed on Wisconsin Recall Petitions if Address Checks Out

The Government Accountability Board in Wisconsin ruled that Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler will be counted on recall petitions as long as they are properly dated and include a valid address.

The signatures of Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler will be counted on recall petitions targeting Gov. Scott Walker as long as they are properly dated and include a Wisconsin address, the board charged with reviewing the petitions was told Tuesday.

Suspicious signatures will be noted when the Government Accountability Board reviews the petitions, but reviewers will look to see that signatures are accompanied by a Wisconsin address and are dated as having been signed during the circulation period, board elections specialist David Buerger said.

“We will flag them, but we will not strike them without challenge,” Buerger said after being asked whether Mickey Mouse’s signature would be counted. He noted that in previous recall petitions, Adolf Hitler’s name was struck because the address given was in Germany, not because of the name itself.

    So, in Wisconsin, if I sign any petition multiple times, using a false name for each signature, and even use the same address then there’s…….NO PROBLEM?

    Guess I’ll head over to the area’s largest cemetary and collect names (oh wait, the libs are already using them)……..I’ll just have to google every cartoon character and mass murderer on record. That’ll work!

    I admire the new-found honesty of the pigresssives. They are no longer concerned about the truth that they do not desire clean fraud free elections.

    WE all must hand it to them for finally being honest about their views on election.

  • Multitude

    But the real story is that both Mickey and Hitler are… registered Democrats.

    This validated news is huge in that it:

    1. Ends the relevance of Godwin’s rule.
    2. Confirms progressive linkage to Hitler with firm, solid, Democratic submitted and validated proof.
    3. Explains why the Democrats are even worse abusers in the Big Business racket when it comes to big media and entertainment, like Walt Disney and unjustifiable copyright extensions and SOPA Constitutionally abusing powers.

    You’re probably being racist for pointing this out. The NAACLP & LSDNBC will say minorities don’t have access to real names.

  • Interesting — obvious voter fraud will be permitted to overturn election results.

    The Milwaukee Urinal’s “Politifact” piece said the the GOP’s claim about allowing these was “false” because both the submitting party (Dems) and the attacked party (Walker) would challenge them, and therefore the GAB would not allow them. Talk about pretzel logic!

    The GAB (Gov’t Accountability Board) will NOT be checking for duplicates, and will not put the signatures into a database. The Walker supporters will have to do that.

    There are two groups planning to review the petitions, once they’re submitted on January 17, and they have just 10 days to do so. The groups are a coalition of Tea Parties – http://www.verifytherecall.com, who will accept volunteers from all over the country, working remotely; and the Wisconsin GOP. The tea party group has also started a register for folks who did NOT sign the recall, so those names can be purged from the recall signatures, if someone placed them there fraudulently.

    I’m signed up for both groups… although I’m tempted to apply for hte temp jobs in Madison (working for the GAB).

  • MAJ Mike

    This but a preview of the 2012 Federal election cycle. The Lib-Cong will lie, cheat and steal to achieve their goal of extending their power. Pay attention to what is coming and prepare.

    The entire registered voters database can be purchased in WI for $12,500. I hope that one of the verify groups would do so – that would at least show verifiable signers, allowing the efforts to be concentrated on others. WI law does not require signers to be registered voters, and, indeed, video has surfaced of underage kids signing the petition, as well as one guy claiming to have signed it 80 times.

    I’m amused that the recallers were claiming to have 1.5 million signatures (75% of ALL votes cast in the last election) and now down to 500,000. They need ~ 540,000,

  • John

    Given this, the State of Wisconsin needs more than Governor Walker can provide. It needs dissolving and starting over.

    Hopelessly corrupt. Modern Liberal. Redundant.

  • L.E. Liesner

    I was always under the impression that signing recall petitions required the signer to be a registered voter. Blatant fraud and corruption seem to have taken over in this case. What is really sad is that these corrupt SOB’s don’t care how ridiculous this make them look just as long as they get what they want.

  • RedBeard

    Translation of the Bureaucratese nonsense: “We’ll allow obviously false names to be submitted, because weeding them out is not written specifically in our job description, and you know we can’t do anything we’re not told to do, like think, reason, or act responsibly. Someone else has to do that for us. Have a nice day.”

  • Texmom

    @Multitude- Bravo, great points. They have technically and willingly linked themselves to fat cats and Hitler.
    This decision makes a mockery of our system. (again.) They clearly have no respect for our republic.

  • JenBee

    Oh so now progressives can openly lie, cheat and steal votes without one whit of recrimination or punishment. Nice, this place we’ve gotten to. 2012 is lost.


    I thought it was voter fraud to knowingly sign a false name on any petition…oh wait we are talking about demo-turds and lying cheating commies…my bad

  • Daisy

    In WI, you must be “eligible” to register to vote, but do not need to actually BE registered. I have no doubt that this will be changed – allowing future recalls to be run more cleanly.

    In addition to the egragrious examples above, signatures need not be valid, addresses need not be fully legibile, but dates must include the year. SO, one could write a page of “X” for the signature, put the address of a UW dorm, and put valid dates.

    Of course, what would it say that a bunch of UW students couldn’t write their own names? Draw your own conclusions.

  • paul52

    I live in WI and most sensible people are burned out by the eternal election cycle. The goonions, both public and private, love to intimidate everyone. Some nasty people.

  • These “Nickey Mouse” names are all a red herring to keep people from focusing or noticing all the bogus “John Smith”s and “”Joe Jones” names on the petitions.

    That’s what ACORN does. It works. The press can be easily fooled as long as the fooling is from the left.

  • FrankT

    Welcome to America. If only folks other than the corrupt Unions and Democratic Party would stand and fight this instead of hiding behind their closed doors…we would all live in a better place and stories of absurdity such as this would not exist.

    Well, folks?

  • Daisy

    Yes Paul, you’re right – many people here are burned out. As a former Chicagoan, I think of politics as a spectator sport and was afraid that Wisconsin would be boring after the whole Chicago Combine days. The only difference here is that I get to play too.

  • Roy Rogers

    It works for Vladimir Putin.

    Scooby Doo and SpongeBob just signed a letter to impeach Obama.

  • eaglewingz08

    Well, at least they’re flagging them so Walker can challenge them in Court. If I were on the gov’t accountability board (which appears to be an oxymoron in Wisconsin), if I saw fictitious names, the petitions would be copied and sent to appropriate federal and state authorities for prosecution.

    Voter ID Cards. Our state insist on them. No problems, you may think that but there still are but this is better than having Mickey and Hitler voting.

  • Patty

    We have one of the worst voting processes ever. Shameful and the democrats just love it and want it left alone.

  • Patty

    Wisconsin is one of the MOST liberal states in America. PERIOD.

  • Stu E.

    I think they just tipped their hand i.e., they don’t have the votes. If enough people in Wisconsin are smart they’ll see right through this and keep Walker in office.

  • J. Craig

    Only racists and haters believe in voter fraud and want voter ID. Of course Mickery Mouse and Adolf Hitler are voters. Only a Republican could doubt that. These names are representative of Democrats just like Valvoline Jackson Hussain and Mcrowaveoven Moonbat Washington and Flatline Zippy Dog.

    Your’ll probably even question the furneral homes, asylums, and cementary addresses as being valid.

    Racists. &ouse peoples es sooooooo estudios.
