Milwaukee DA investigating out-of-state voting allegations

The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office is investigating a complaint accusing out-of-state election volunteers of voting in Wisconsin, listing a local hotel as their residence. Journal-Sentinel

Earlier Wednesday, Media Trackers, a conservative advocacy group, posted a blog linking images of two voter registration forms and identifying those named on the forms as out-of-state "activists," working for the Service Employees International Union. Each form lists the Residence Inn in Glendale as the voter's address.

An image of another voter registration form on the Media Trackers site lists Austin Thompson as the voter and the same hotel as Thompson's address. Thompson was arrested last week during an Occupy Milwaukee protest at a downtown Milwaukee bank.

Media Trackers is sponsored by American Majority, a Virginia-based tea party training group that also organized a pro-Gov. Scott Walker rally in February.
