Anti-gay group Wisconsin Family Action has been caught working together with Americans For Prosperity to commit mail fraud and, quite possibly, to interfere with voters’ rights.
Americans For Prosperity has sent out mailings targeting Democratic voters, directing recipients to send their applications for absentee ballots to the “Absentee Ballot Processing Center” at Box 1327 in Madison. Problem is, that address belongs to Wisconsin Family Action. Julaine Appling, director of Wisconsin Family Action, confirmed that her group is “part of a coalition, and we’re doing this.”
This looks like something federal prosecutors should take a close look at.

Thanks to Barbara With for investigating this, and to Sherry Wilson for the tip on this story.
