A man who stopped his pickup truck at a site where signatures were being collected Thursday for the recall of Gov. Scott Walker ripped up one of the petitions instead of signing it, Madison police said.
The incident happened at about 10 a.m. in the 800 block of South Midvale Boulevard, said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
The signature gatherers were holding signs and having vehicles pull into a parking lane when a driver in a red pickup stopped. When given a petition to sign, he ripped it up and drove away, DeSpain said. The destroyed petition had three signatures on it, he said.
Signature takers were able to get the license plate number, but police had not located the man as of Thursday afternoon, DeSpain said. Falsifying, defacing or destroying a recall petition is a felony punishable by up to three years and six months in prison and a $10,000 fine.
I think he should have to personally carry a new petition to the homes of the three people who signed the petition he ripped up, and get their signatures.
Because I know how you-all think, yes, felons can vote in Wisconsin upon completion of all supervised release.
