Wisconsin election officials say that six Republicans running as Democrats in the upcoming recall elections should be allowed to stay on the ballot.
The recommendation came Monday from Government Accountability Board staff in a memo to the retired judges who sit on the board and will vote Tuesday on the issue.
The Republican Party recruited candidates to run as fake Democrats to ensure there would be primary races in all six contests. That way the general election for all six would be June 5, following a May 8 primary.
So, basically, lying on your application to run for office is perfectly acceptable in Wisconsin. Gotcha.
