Pasch's Crooked Campaign "Helpers"

It's not a surprise to learn that Big Labor is breaking election laws in Wisconsin. Laws, jaws, knees, what's the difference?

....this practice, however old, is illegal. Sec. 12.11(1m)(a)1 applies to anyone who "[o]ffers, gives, lends or promises to give or lend, or endeavors to procure, anything of value, ... to, or for, any elector, or to or for any other person, in order to induce any elector to ... [g]o to or refrain from going to the polls." Do this and you've committed a Class I felony punishable by a fine of up to $ 10,000 and imprisonment of up to 3 and a half years - more if you've got record.

The organizers of these bribery parties say that they're in the clear because someone could come to the party, take the goodies and not go vote. The GAB disagrees and it does seem that the events offered and gave an "inducement" to vote.

It also wouldn't be a surprise if Chisholm fails to prosecute, or if the offenders are given probation.

The Pasch Corruptocracy moves on.
