Einhorn Foundation confirms it paid for ‘voter fraud’ billboards in Wisconsin

An obscure family foundation has confirmed that it paid for a billboard advertising campaign warning of the legal penalties for voter fraud. A joint investigation by theGrio and One Wisconsin Now revealed that the Einhorn Family Foundation, led by Steven Einhorn, was behind the billboards, which began appearing in minority-heavy parts of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with just weeks to go before the presidential election. The boards were bought anonymously from Clear Channel Outdoor advertising by a “private family foundation,” and eventually taken down after weeks of protests.

Now, the Einhorn Family Foundation is acknowledging it was behind the billboard campaign. When first contacted by theGrio, a public relations firm representing the foundation denied they had any part in purchasing the billboard ads.

A statement released late Monday by the Einhorn Family Foundation reads:

“Stephen and Nancy Einhorn placed these billboards as a public service because voter fraud —whether by Republicans or Democrats — undermines our democratic process. By reminding people of the possible consequences of illegal voting, we hope to help the upcoming election be decided by legally registered voters.”

Scot Ross of One Wisconsin Now had this response:

Perhaps their Chicago public relations firm could answer why the Einhorns only felt it was necessary to target legal voters in minority communities, and why they didn’t feel the need to do this “public service” throughout communities across Wisconsin where a majority of the residents are white. Or put their name on it, rather than hiding behind the cowardly veil of anonymity.

True the Vote observers barred from Franklin County polling places

A Houston-based group that wanted to monitor 30 Franklin County polling places for potential voter fraud was thwarted yesterday by the county elections board.

True the Vote - whose Ohio branch is called the Voter Integrity Project - was denied status as official observers because at least most of the candidates who supported the organization's effort withdrew their backing. State law allows groups of at least five candidates to assign poll observers, and the group originally had obtained signatures from a bipartisan group of six candidates for county office.

“The Franklin County Board of Elections did not allow Election Day polling location observer appointments filed by the True the Vote group," said board spokesman Ben Pisctelli in a statement. "The appointments were not properly filed and our voting location managers were instructed not to honor any appointment on behalf of the True the Vote group.”

There were charges yesterday that the candidates' names had either been falsified or merely copied on forms requesting observer status for the True the Vote at several Franklin County polling places. Many are in predominantly African American neighborhoods.
