All Real Democrats Defeat Fake Candidates in Recall Election Primaries

All of the real Democrats have defeated the fake candidates planted by the Republicans in the primaries for the recalls of the 6 Republicans set for August 9th.

The Republicans admitted to planting the fake Democrats in order to stall the recall elections for the 6 Republicans, giving more time to collect out-of-state money and run junk ads, as well as draining Democrat funds. 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.

2nd Senate District
Nancy Nusbaum, D-De Pere - 65% (winner)
Republican fake - Otto Junkermann, D-Green Bay - 35%
100% reporting

8th Senate District
Rep. Sandy Pasch, D-Whitefish Bay - 64% (winner)
Republican fake - Gladys Huber, D-Mequon - 36%
97% reporting

10th Senate District
Shelly Moore, D-River Falls - 54% (winner)
Republican fake - Isaac Weix, D-Menomonie - 46%
97% reporting

14th Senate District
Rep. Fred Clark, D-Baraboo - 67% (winner)
Republican fake - Rol Church, D-Wautoma - 33%
98% reporting

18th Senate District
Jessica King, D-Oshkosh - 69% (winner)
Republican fake - John Buckstaff, D-Oshkosh - 31%
100% reporting

32nd Senate District
Rep. Jennifer Shilling, D-La Crosse - 70% (winner)
Republican fake - James Smith, D-La Crosse - 30%
100% reporting

The Republicans and tea party activists ran ads and sent out flyers and emails to aggressively Get Out The Vote for the fake Democrats, trying to defeat the real Democrats through voter confusion before the recall elections. So, in effect, these elections are test-runs of the recall elections on August 9th. These numbers should make the Republicans very scared, and I'm sure their internal polling reflects these results, which is why they're rushing to pass so many radical laws including the new redistricting plan (which redistricts-out Democrat recall candidates Fred Clark and Nancy Nusbaum - making it easier for the Republicans to win back their seats in 2012).

In fact, they've resorted to even more voter suppression with at least one conservative group caught calling registered Democratic voters to tell them they don't have to go and vote today (originally posted by WI Voices Heidi Herron).

Remember, you'll be asked to show your ID during the recall elections, but you don't have to. Don't show your ID during the recall elections in support of those who will find it difficult or impossible to vote in 2012 when IDs are required.
