Plenty of Republicans are worried about voter fraud. Here's what's going on in Milwaukee, as stated in an email sent out this week by Scott Walker, County Executive:
Yeah, good question. Why do they need so many ballots? Just how much do they intend to stuff those ballot boxes, anyway? Sheesh.
The City of Milwaukee asked for 938,300 ballots for the November 2004 election The total population in Milwaukee: 596,974 in 2000 and 593,920 in 2004 The total legal voting age population in Milwaukee in 2004: 423,811 Total votes cast in 2000 fall election: 245,670
The County Executive’s concern is simple, how does the number of ballots provided to the City of Milwaukee not cover them and why do they need so many more ballots? The county gave the city more than twice as many ballots as were cast in the city in the 2000 election and more than 200,000 more ballots than the total number of voting age people living in the city.
