MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A suburban Milwaukee man is free on a signature bond, after being charged with 13 counts of illegal voting.
50-year-old Robert Monroe of Shorewood is accused of voting 5 times in the Walker recall election in 2012 -- twice in the last presidential election -- twice in Senator Alberta Darling's recall contest -- twice in the 2011 State Supreme Court election -- and once illegally in an August primary in 2012.
He's also charged with registering to vote in more than one place, and giving false information to election officials.
Monroe is due back in court July 31st for a preliminary hearing.
Court records showed that Monroe's son was the initial target of a year-long investigation. The son's father was implicated after he told prosecutors he might have submitted a ballot on his dad's behalf in a recall vote.
Monroe reportedly told an investigator that all of 2012 was "very blurry" to him.
