A man in North Hudson, Wisconsin, has filed an official complaint with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board. Charles Schultz got one of those applications for an absentee ballot in the mail – you know, the ones that say the deadline for returning is after this month’s recall elections. Mr. Schultz’ complaint, by way of the local Patch report:

If I followed their instructions, my ballot would not be legal. I think they purposely intended to discount my vote. I understand such activity to be against the law. I believe I was targeted by this group because I am a Democrat and a senior citizen.

The applications are being sent by the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity, which insists they’re going only to AFP friendlies. The state director tells the Journal Sentinel:

“This just went out to our members…I’m sure the liberals will try to make a mountain out of a molehill in an attempt to distract voters’ attention from the issues.”

Below, a screengrab from the application found and posted by Politico.
