John Kelly, resident of Stillwater, MN, has received two calls from the WRTL organization giving him incorrect information. Election Day in Wisconsin for six recall elections is Tuesday, Aug 9. Absentee ballots need to be turned into your local voting place by Aug. 9.
However, On Monday Aug. 1, a robocall from WI Right to Life informed John Kelly to “return your absentee ballot to us by August 11” for the WI recall elections. Then yesterday, Aug 4, he received another robocall urging him to “vote on Aug 11th.”
Most of us remember the suppression tactics that WRTL utilized during our primary. They shrugged it off as “bad timing,” and not intentional. However, the Koch Brother group Americans for Prosperity, and now WRTL is, once again, is giving false information and dates and tampering with our election process.
John Kelly is furious not only about the misinformation, but also is wondering how this group got his number in the first place? He is a lifelong Democrat, it is not even legal for him to vote in the Wisconsin election (he’s a MN resident), and he has no history of ever voting absentee. John speculates that the group may have gotten his information from donation records. He said that he has donated to the Shelly Moore campaign, the WI Democratic Party, and WI public radio all within the last few months. He is guessing that WRTL has gained access to those records and is targeting Democratic voters. He has not lived in WI since 1986 and has never had any contact with WI Right to Life.
Please record this robocall if you receive it. John claims that the phone number did not come up on his caller I.D. It simply listed “insufficient data.” Please record this – and report to the authorities immediately.
