How a Scott Walker Supporter Was Caught Voting Multiple Times

A John Doe was caught voting multiple times and in more then one state.

Wisconsin Act 23 was signed by Gov. Walker on May 25, 2011. The photo ID provisions went into effect for the February 2012 Spring Primary. The Photo ID provisions of the law were first enjoined in March 2012.

The John Doe cast two ballots in the April 2011 Supreme Court Election, two in the August 2011 Recall Election of State Sen. Alberta Darling, five in the Recall Election of Gov. Scott Walker, one illegal ballot in an August 2012 Primary and two ballots in the November 2012 Presidential Election. But charges were not filed until June 2014.

He also voted in Indiana using his driver license in November 2012, where that State’s law was in effect. Don't know whether Indiana ever pursued prosecution.

To catch him, investigators and prosecutors used DNA evidence from Absentee ballot envelopes to prove it was he who sealed them rather than the voters he was impersonating.

Wisconsin has an excellent system designed to identify multiple registration and voting by the same person, which is how authorities first became aware of a suspicious Absentee ballot request in the name of his son-in-law. But it sounds like the case quickly became more complicated, crossing multiple jurisdictions.

So when a state has a robust Photo ID law, why are most cases the abuse of the Absentee ballot system?
