Hitting Bottom, Wisconsin Republicans Admit To Running Fake Democratic Candidates

Proposed new slogan for Republicans, The Party Without Shame, in Wisconsin:

Vote For Us. We're Counterfeit.

How is this not election fraud?

Because the Republicans actually being recalled are actually showing up for work and doing their job. Not running a recall campaign right now. And aren't the democrats running a "place-card" candidate as well. Why is it a "place-card" candidate when the Democrats do it but a "fake" candidate when the Republicans do it? This is allowing both sides time to run a campaign since the Republicans are working right now and not taking the advice of ones that prefer to leave their jobs for 3 weeks.

Question - what is the difference between a 'fake' and a 'placeholder' candidate?

Answer - the former is an honest term and the latter is not.

And bottom was hit last year when a fake candidate was run against Ziegelbauer up in Sheboygan

Did Ziegelbauer run in any primaries?

As far as I can tell, he's an Independent who "caucuses with the Republicans."

It's a "place-card" when they place it in their own party as the last resort to stabilize this summer's election dates.
