Wis. convicted felon accused of voting illegally
KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A convicted felon is accused of voting illegally in the November election in Kenosha County.
Forty-nine-year-old Michael Radtke of Twin Lakes faces three felony counts of election fraud.
According to the criminal complaint, records indicate Radtke registered and voted Nov. 6 at Lakewood School in Twin Lakes. As part of that process, he signed a voter application form that included a statement that he was not serving a sentence, including probation, for any felony conviction.
Records show Radtke was on probation for a 2010 conviction in Walworth County.
Assistant District Attorney Richard Ginkowski says convicted felons can legally vote only after their civil rights are restored.
The Kenosha News (http://bit.ly/Y8PL92 ) reports Radtke makes his first court appearance March 27. A home phone listing for Radtke could not be found.
