Jeff Demet of Racine is one of the people whose signature was allegedly forged. A friend found his signature four times, but Demet said he never signed once. The Racine County Sheriff’s Office is now investigating that, said Capt. Thomas Lamke. 

Demet’s mother, Mary Demet, also was listed as signing the recall, but Lamke said investigators talked to her and she said she didn’t sign either.

One of the people listed as circulating petitions with Jeff Demet’s signature is his brother, said Jeff Demet. But Lamke said Friday afternoon that he didn’t know if investigators had talked to the brother yet.

Mark has been charged with a total of 9 felonies in connection with this.  He is charged with 2 counts of Election Fraud-Fraud/Nomination Certification and 7 counts of  Misappropriate ID Info – Obtain Money.  You can see the charges here.
