State Sen. Alberta Darling (R), who served as co-chair of Mitt Romney’s Wisconsin campaign, recently told Mike Gousha of WISN that voter ID “absolutely”would have made a difference in the outcome of the presidential election.
Darling’s comments imply that voter fraud may have played a role in President Barack Obama’s victory in the state on Election Day.
“We’re looking at all sorts of different precincts and all sorts of same-day registrations,” Darling said. “I know people will go, ‘We don’t have fraud and abuse in our elections.’ But why, why can’t we have voter ID when the majority of our people in Wisconsin wanted it, we passed it, the governor signed it? Why should one judge in Dane County be able to hold it up?”
The Wisconsin Supreme Court decided not to proceed with the case after it had been put on hold by a judge.
