There is no question which side benefits more

Fully Story
Who Might Benefit Most From Fake Signature In Recall Wirch Petition?
A Look At The Facts:
  • The Committee to Recall Robert Wirch gathered 5,000 signatures more than the required 13,500 signatures needed.
  • Without having seen any of the names on the recall petition, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Mike Tate “guaranteed” to reporters that “there will be fraudulent signatures turned in.”
  • The signature in question was recorded on March 3rd during what was reportedly one of the busiest days at the drive-through signature booth. According to Chairman of the Committee To Recall Wirch Dan Hunt, they were gathering an average of “one signature per minute.”
  • Despite accusations that the signature was recorded by a paid out-of-state organizer, the name listed on page 362 is that of Kevin Pursell who lives and works in Kenosha, WI.
  • Furthermore, every other signature on Pursell’s page is valid and has been validated according to Hunt.

Clearly, one signature will not make or break the Recall Wirch effort that gathered over 5,000 signatures more than was needed.

Unless the widespread collection of fraudulent names is discovered (which thus far, none has been uncovered), evidence does not point towards the Recall Wirch Committee benefitting much from the use of a single fraudulent signature.

But for the Left, who are most threatened by the recall of Senator Robert Wirch, the discovery of a fraudulent signature benefits them greatly. For weeks now it has been well documented that all three recall efforts against Democrats have been the target of a smear campaign by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin who openly called the efforts a “racket” as well as “dangerously unethical and dangerously fraudulent.”

But when one asks the question cui bono? There is no question which side benefits more.
