So today, after having spent an hour trying to vote, I hear that on the Daily Kos that Ryan committed VOTER FRAUD!!! They have video of him showing his kids how to fill out the ballot and vote.
According to the Wisconsin statues, 12.13 relates to voter fraud. It states the following:
12.13 Election fraud.
(1) Electors. Whoever intentionally does any of the following violates this chapter:
(a) Votes at any election or meeting if that person does not have the necessary elector qualifications and residence requirements.
(b) Falsely procures registration or makes false statements to the municipal clerk, board of election commissioners or any other election official whether or not under oath.
(c) Registers as an elector in more than one place for the same election.
(d) Impersonates a registered elector or poses as another person for the purpose of voting at an election.
(e) Votes more than once in the same election.
(f) Shows his or her marked ballot to any person or places a mark upon the ballot so it is identifiable as his or her ballot.
(g) Procures an official ballot and neglects or refuses to cast or return it. This paragraph does not apply to persons who have applied for and received absentee ballots.
(h) Procures, assists or advises someone to do any of the acts prohibited by this subsection.
According to the Wisconsin law voter fraud is a Class I Felony which comes with a fine of $10,000, up to 3 1/2 years in jail or both! Please note that the law does not state that there is an age limit, so this is still a case for voter fraud!
So I ask you to be judge and jury here, do you think he should be punished for having done this? I SURE DO!!! After all, this guy is suppose to be supporting the President of the United States (assuming Romney/Ryan wins) and he violated his own states law!
For those of you voting in Illinois, here is our law and punishment!
(10 ILCS 5/29-9) (from Ch. 46, par. 29-9)
Sec. 29-9. Unlawful observation of voting. Except as permitted by this Code, any person who knowingly marks his ballot or casts his vote on a voting machine or voting device so that it can be observed by another person, and any person who knowingly observes another person lawfully marking a ballot or lawfully casting his vote on a voting machine or voting device, shall be guilty of a Class 4 felony.
(Source: P.A. 78-887.)
730 ILCS 5/5-8-1(a)(7) provides that the term of incarceration for a Class 4 felony is ordinarily between one and three years. 730 ILCS 5/5-9-1(a)(1) ordinarily provides for fines of up to $25,000 for felonies, except that corporations may normally be fined up to $50,000. Ashley and Humble (December 2005) indicate, "Only a small proportion of those convicted of a Class 4 felony are sentenced to prison" (pp. 1-2). This is presumably due to offenders receiving suspended prison sentences and avoiding actual prison sentences through completion of terms of probation.
Hope y'all got someone with deep pockets if you are peeping in on someone voting or sharing your vote with someone else, regardless of their age!!!
