MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Ten people were charged Thursday with voter fraud in Milwaukee County, dating back to the petitions for the recall election against Governor Scott Walker.

24-year-old Caitlyn Haycock was charged with a misdemeanor in the recall process.

Prosecutors said she signed the anti-Walker petitions three times on behalf of herself and her parents – retired teachers who were out of the U.S. at the time.

The person who took the signatures, 64-year-old Jenny Wanasek, is charged with misdemeanor fraud for accepting them. She told officers she was planning to cross out the parents’ signatures, but forgot.

Also 55-year-old Leonard Brown is charged with double-voting, giving false information to election officials, and voting as a disqualified person in four elections last year and one in 2011.

The others are charged with registering and voting in more than one place, telling election officials they were not convicted felons when they were, and voting in places outside their home areas.
