May 20, 2011- A Republican legislative aide is under investigation for possible vote fraud after she cast her ballot in the November election in Onalaska although she lives in Madison.
La Crosse County District Attorney Tim Gruenke said he has forwarded the report from the Onalaska Police Department to Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne to see if criminal charges are warranted against Marcie Malszycki, 30, an aide to state Rep. Warren Petryk, R-Eleva.
Records from the Government Accountability Board show Malszycki voted in Onalaska on Nov. 2, 2010, and Nov. 4, 2008, at the same time she had a home in Madison and worked at the state Capitol. Messages left with Malszycki by email, phone and Facebook weren't returned.
Before the November election, Malszycki worked on the campaign of 92nd Assembly District candidate Dennis Clinard. The district lies just northeast of Onalaska.
Gruenke said he believes state law requires the case be handled in Dane County. Ozanne said he is researching which office has jurisdiction.
May 20, 2011- Ah the ironies of the Wisconsin Republicans…. they are busy passing restrictive voter ID laws, as billboards rumored to be associated with the Tea Party crop up warning “VOTER FRAUD is a FELONY!”, but today it is a Republican legislative aide who is under investigation for voter fraud for voting in Onalaska although she lives in Madison.
Yes, it’s true. Marcie Malszycki, a Republican legislative aide who works for the guy who co-sponsored the voter ID bill, allegedly voted improperly for Scott Walker – well, actually she allegedly violated the election law in 2008 and 2010, sort of an allegedly running scam if you will. I know, you’re shocked.

May 20, 2011- As the middle class remains under sustained attack in state legislatures, media attention is increasingly turning to the corporate interests orchestrating a national spread of industry-written bills seeking to weaken state economies, strip workers of their rights, suppress voter turnout, and capitalize on the politics of division and fear – all in pursuit of private profit. In a spate of recent reports, specific scrutiny is being focused on the role of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) in allowing corporations access to influence state laws that benefit their bottom lines at the expense of the economic security of families.
