No wonder Republicans are so worried about voter fraud, because it’s something they would do themselves. Call it…projection.
WSJ: A Republican legislative aide is under investigation for possible vote fraud after she cast her ballot in the November election in Onalaska although she lives in Madison.
(The) La Crosse County District Attorney is asking Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne “to see if criminal charges are warranted against Marcie Malszycki, 30, an aide to state Rep. Warren Petryk, R-Eleva.”
Records from the GAB show Malszycki voted in Onalaska on Nov. 2, 2010, and Nov. 4, 2008, at the same time she had a home in Madison and worked at the state Capitol.
Ironic isn’t it. Voter fraud is part of a big problem the Republicans have with something called “projection,” described as “a psychological defense mechanism where a person unconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to other people.”
More ironic is the fact that she works for one of the co-sponsors of the voter ID bill. Marcie tipped everyone off when she posted her voting intention on FBI helper, Facebook.
In a post on Facebook the day of the 2010 general election, Malszycki said she had voted for GOP candidates Scott Walker, Ron Johnson, Dan Kapanke, Mike Huebsch and J.B. Van Hollen and planned to return to her South Side neighborhood the next day. Former Dane County Sup. Patrick DePula challenged Malszycki's right to vote in Onalaska on her Facebook page then posted the exchange on his blog last month. A Madison man read the blog and filed a complaint …
According to the Onalaska police report, Malszycki voted after her mother signed an affidavit saying she had lived at her home for two months. Residents must live in a district for 10 days to be eligible to vote. Malszycki told an Onalaska police officer that a pollworker told her it would be OK to vote and that "her intent that day was to cast a vote, not do anything wrong,"
That’s what they all say. But voting twice is not something you would call, unintentional. And that's called voter fraud.
