Suspicious Absentee Ballot Mailers in WI

Politico has this report and TPM this post alleging that the conservative group Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin is sending out absentee ballot applications with instructions to return the ballot “before August 11.”  The problem?  They’ve allegedly been sent to Democratic voters in places where the recall election of Republican state senators will take place August 9.   Also, according to TPM, the return envelope address is one that’s been used by conservative group Wisconsin Family Action.  This sounds like too clumsy a voter deception scheme to be true.

Update:  The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board has issued this warning about unofficial absentee voter applications.

Update 2:  The Wisconsin Democratic Party is reportedly planning to file a complaint against AFP with the GAB.
