Wisconsin Voter Fraud Allegations Unsubstantiated, DA Says

Posted: Updated:

RACINE, Wis. -- Authorities who investigated allegations of voter fraud in a Wisconsin Senate recall election that went to a recount say they've found no evidence of criminal activity.

The Racine County Sheriff's Department and prosecutor's office spent a month looking into the claims. Complaints included the discovery of voter-registration documents in a garbage can and allegations that absentee ballots were mishandled.

The complaints arose after Republican state Sen. Van Wanggaard (WAHN'-gard) lost a recall election last month to Democratic challenger John Lehman.
