True the Vote was nowhere to be found when Robert Monroe stuffed the ballot box for Scott Walker and Alberta Darling?

Repeat after me: Consistently documented voter fraud is a Republican phenomenon, not a Democratic one. And now we've got a doozy of a case unfolding in...drum roll please...Wisconsin!


A Shorewood man has been charged with more than a dozen counts of illegal voting, accused of casting multiple ballots in four elections in 2011 and 2012, including five in the 2012 gubernatorial recall.

Robert D. Monroe, 50, used addresses in Shorewood, Milwaukee and Indiana, according to the complaint, and cast some votes in the names of his son and his girlfriend's son.

According to the complaint:

Monroe cast two ballots in the April 2011 Supreme Court election, two in the August 2011 Alberta Darling recall election, five in the Scott Walker-Tom Barrett recall, one illegal ballot in an August 2012 primary, and two ballots in the November 2012 presidential election.

The Journal-Sentinel helpfully omitted who Monroe cast those ballots for, but WisPolitics has more details.

"During 2011 and 2012, the defendant, Robert Monroe, became especially focused upon political issues and causes, including especially the recall elections," the complaint asserts in its introduction. reported the investigation into Monroe's multiple voting last week after Milwaukee County Judge J.D. Watts ordered the records related to a secret John Doe investigation be made public after the investigation was closed.

According to those records, Monroe was considered by investigators to be the most prolific multiple voter in memory. He was a supporter of Gov. Scott Walker and state Sen. Alberta Darling, both Republicans, and allegedly cast five ballots in the June 2012 election in which Walker survived a recall challenge.

According to the John Doe records, Monroe claimed to have a form of temporary amnesia and did not recall the election day events when confronted by investigators.

Monroe is an insurance executive. I'm sure the GOP mantra to repeal Obamacare had absolutely nothing to do with his "focus" upon political issues and causes. And boy howdy, was he ever focused. So focused, in fact, that he just forgot he stuffed the ballot box.

I wonder if there are any others they're investigating. Where's True the Vote when you need them?
