Democrats in Wisconsin on Thursday demanded that election officials disqualify fake candidates running in recall primary elections this spring, according to the Associated Press.
The Democrats are being represented by attorney Jeremy Levinson, who claims the fake candidates are violating Wisconsin election laws.
“The fraudulent candidates and the RPW [Republican Party of Wisconsin] have explicitly acknowledged that, in fact, these fraudulent primary candidates are part of an effort to manipulate the electoral process in support of Republican incumbents facing recall,” Levinson wrote in a complaint to the Government Accountability Board.
Levinson claims that the candidates are required to state under oath that their candidacy is representing the political party for which the primary is to take place. But the fake Democratic candidates are running in the primary elections to help the Republican Party, and have publicly admitted that is their intention.
