Fake voter registrations under investigation in Wisconsin

There are a number of interesting stories this morning regarding allegations that some voter registration workers in Wisconsin attempted to register fake names. Here’s a story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “Fake names get voter registration workers investigated.”

Here is a summary from this story:

Criminal investigations could be launched against at least six voter registration workers who tried to add dead, imprisoned or imaginary people to the voter rolls, according to the Milwaukee Election Commission and the organization that employed them.

Officials are reviewing some 200 to 300 fraudulent voter registration cards, Sue Edman, the commission’s executive director, said Wednesday.

There’s also an AP story on these allegations, run here by the Chicago Tribune.
