The Republicans admitted to planting the fake Democrats in order to stall the recall elections for the 6 Republicans until August 9th, giving more time to collect out-of-state money and to run junk ads. This political stunt costs us taxpayers nearly half a million dollars, and it borders on election fraud. It may not be illegal, but it sure isn't ethical.
The Republicans and conservatives ran many ads and sent out emails to Get Out The Vote for the fake Democrats, trying to defeat the real Democrats through voter confusion before the real recall election. So, in effect, this election is a test-run of the real recall election in August 9th. These numbers should make the Republicans very scared, and I'm sure their internally polling reflects these results, which is why they're rushing to pass so many radical laws including the new redistricting plan.
In fact, one conservative group has been caught calling registered voters to tell them they don't have to go and vote today (originally posted by WI Voices Heidi Herron).
