MacIver Institute mostly lying, re: Wisconsin to allow Mickey Mouse, Hitler signatures on petitions to recall Gov. Scott Walker

More silliness from an increasingly nervous Right Wing. Why are they nervous? They already have the codes to hack the voting machines.

PolitiFact Wisconsin | Conservative group says Wisconsin to allow Mickey Mouse, Hitler signatures on petitions to recall Gov. Scott Walker


Politifact's conclusion
The MacIver Institute said "Wisconsin election officials to accept Mickey Mouse, Hitler signatures" -- suggesting such signatures would automatically be counted toward the number needed to force Walker into a recall election. 
For such signatures to actually be counted, they would have to pass undetected through petition circulators, the recall committees, a pair of Government Accountability Board reviewers, Walker’s representatives and other groups that review the petitions. If such signatures were found, Walker could formally challenge them to the board to get them stricken. 
There’s an element of truth in MacIver’s statement in that fictitious signatures listed with Wisconsin addresses would be accepted -- but only for review. The statement, however, ignores critical facts -- namely that the signatures would have to pass through several layers of review to actually be counted. 
That’s our definition of Mostly False.

Funny, the Milwaukee Journal did not rate their own paper that said the same thing as Mostly False.
