gargantua, you should write to your Facebook friend immediately and tell her to hold on to any recording of the robo-call she may have. It could be material evidence of a crime.

Exactly. That is the question Stu Levitan needs to answer.


Try again, Larry.

I asked *you* if *you* had a reason to believe Stu's "confirmed" was "false representation" Do you?

You do? Then state your reason and let's see if it is reasonable.

Because I read the Salon article. http://www.salon.com/2012/06/05/nasty_r ... singleton/
Did you? Until Stu Levitan tells us more, I have to assume that the Salon article is his "confirmed". Mr. Levitan didn't give us a link. That gives me reasonable doubt that he has given us a true representation of the event - that there is "confirmation" of the crime having been committed by supporters of Walker.

You mean this?

"Reached over e-mail, Walker spokesperson Ciara Matthews didn’t question the existence of the calls"

Good catch, Columbo. Now ask Mr. Levitan (under oath, if you can) if that is his smoking gun.

Because you are such a genius, luk.

Now go ahead - ask Mr. Levitan. May he'll answer you.

It's kind of the catch-all election fraud statute.


Of course, the GAB also just ruled that the "fake Democrats" weren't performing fraud under this statute (even though they knowingly made a false representation in an election that they were Democrats), so its efficacy is extremely in question right now.

Report: Robocalls falsely telling petition signers they don't have to vote

Gee, more confirmed dirty tricks from the right? Who'd a-thunk it?

INVESTIGATE AND PROSECUTE.

Yeah, a guy can dream.

If these calls happened, it is worth investigating as to the actual content of the call. However, rather than say investigate and prosecute, it seems more prudent to say: Investigate and then prosecute if a crime occurred and it can be established beyond a reasonable doubt in the court of law.

In my opinion, it's more than a bit disingenuous for anyone from the left to imply most of the deception in this campaign is from the right. That simply isn't true.
