    WOW. This information and way gathered and presented is compelling.
    HOW do we get this info further vetted, processed in a easy to read & comprehend way and get this into key peoples hands?

    Will you be in need of funds to carry this work forward?
    Do you have good financial and legal people helping you or do you need to bring such people on board H.O.T. to do this added work?

    It appears that 90% of the questionable contributions went into Democrat candidates organizations.

    THANK YOU, for doing all this work and sending it out to me and others who hopefully will support this work needing to be completed.

    If the WEC or whichever responsible organization was able to so quickly determine which signatures and addresses were falsely submitted for the Voss recall, why is it so difficult to figure these smurfing violations out?? Who should be charged with determining the validity of these questionable donations, so many of which do not even meet basic requirements, and why isn’t this being pursued by appropriate authorities??
