Shorewood Walker Supporter commits Voter Fraud 13 Times.

Maybe it's just a case of conservative projection again when it comes to voter fraud. 

This amazing example of fraud proves the biggest cheaters are Republicans, who aren't as confident about winning as they would like us to believe. Maybe it's their agenda?

But this guy did take away my vote, and maybe yours too. WisPolitics:
Shorewood resident charged with 13 felonies over alleged multiple voting: Robert Monroe, a 50-year-old Shorewood health insurance executive, was charged Friday with 13 felonies related to his voting a dozen times in five elections between 2011 and 2012 using his own name as well as that of his son and his girlfriend's son. "During 2011 and 2012, the defendant, Robert Monroe, became especially focused upon political issues and causes, including especially the recall elections," the complaint asserts in its introduction.

After Milwaukee County Judge J.D. Watts ordered the records related to a secret John Doe investigation be made public after … According to those records, Monroe was considered by investigators to be the most prolific multiple voter in memory. He was a supporter of Gov. Scott Walker and state Sen. Alberta Darling, both Republicans, and allegedly cast five ballots in the June 2012 election in which Walker survived a recall challenge.

According to the John Doe records, Monroe claimed to have a form of temporary amnesia and did not recall the election day events when confronted by investigators. This double voting allegedly occurred after he was made aware of a double-voting investigation involving his son.

The investigation was initiated after authorities in Waukesha found that Monroe's son, Benjamin, had voted in person in Waukesha in the June 2012 recall election … An absentee ballot for Benjamin was also cast for Benjamin using the Shorewood address of his father. Also … an absentee ballot was cast using the name Grant Mueller, son of Robert Monroe's girlfriend, using the Shorewood address. The first election Monroe allegedly voted more than once was in the April 2011 Supreme Court race in which incumbent David Prosser faced Joanne Kloppenburg, a race so close that it eventually led to a recount.

Each of the 13 counts carries a penalty of up to $10,000 in forefeitures and three-and-a-half years in prison, for a total of $130,000 and 45-and-half years. If convicted of a felony, he would lose his right to vote.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel covered this case today but unaccountably ignored the fact that the guy is a Walker/Darling supporter. That's important in two ways: One, it shows how Voter ID would have failed to catch or stop this guy, and two, it shows just how much Repubs project their own animus onto Democrats. Indeed, numerous right-wing outlets and luminaries on up to Reince Preibus are busy blaming Democrats for the guy's subterfuge. But, but, but... how did the cops ever catch him without having Voter ID at their disposal?

Luckily, Salon.com has now tipped to this and didn't ignore the GOP angle. See:

And mentioned in the John Doe complaint is big checks handed out to fake groups like United Sportsmen of Wisconsin for "absentee ballot activities". Makes you go "Hmmmm", doesn't it?

It's ALWAYS PROJECTION with righties. They cheat and lie, so they think we must do the same thing as well.

Republican problems with "projection" should be a bigger issue in the media than my focus here. If the public began accepting the concept they might also start questioning conservatives general intentions.

Thanks so much for the Salon article, a great headline and sub-headline. I may do a story on it.

I would like to know which health insurance company he is an executive of.

According to LinkedIn he is/was a VP in RNJ Marketing of Indiana. He has also been employed at UnitedHealthcare for a long time. His LinkedIn claims those both ended back in 2012 but he probably updated that upon his arrest to protect his employers, and therefore his paycheck.

Also, according to wdfi.org, Robert Monroe created RDM Productions LLC on February 1st of this year.
