Leg. aide charged with voter fraud boasted of vote on Facebook - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

UPDATE: Facebook post used against leg. aide charged with voter fraud


MADISON (WKOW) -- The legislative aide charged with voter fraud admitted her voting activities on Facebook, according to court records associated with the investigation.

The criminal complaint provides information found by an investigator with the Dane County District Attorney's Office, in the Election Fraud case against Marcie Malszycki. She faces two counts.

The complaint states Malszycki, in a facebook post dated November 2, 2010, wrote, "Just voted for Waker, Johnson, Kapanke, Huebsch and JB Vanhollen. Go Team!!!" DMV records show Malszycki lives in Madison, and when questioned in the post by a Madison neighbor about where she voted Malszycki responded, "Voted in Onalaska since I am living here."

The complaint details that Malszycki was living in Onalaska temporarily while working on a candidate's campaign. It goes on to state Malszycki told an Onalaska police officer she had been staying with her parents, and that she told a poll worker she had been living with her parents for two months before voting. Malszycki says a poll worker informed her she could vote if her mother signed her registration form acknowledging Malsyzcki has been living there, which her mother did.

The complaint also details evidence that Malszycki registered to vote at the polls on November 4, 2008 in Onalaska, using her parents' address, despite living in her home in Madison a few months before.

Work records show Malszycki took a leave of absence in the fall of 2008 and fall of 2010 to do campaign work.

Malszycki currently works for State Rep. Warren Petryk, a Republican from Elvira.

Rep. Petryk declined an on-camera interview with WKOW, but in a statement said, "The incident under question would have occurred prior to her working in my office.  She is a valuable and excellent employee." 


MADISON (WKOW) -- Election fraud charges were filed Monday in Dane County against a legislative aide.

Court records show 33-year-old Marcie Malszycki faces two felony counts of election fraud-illegal voting. The offenses are connected to the November elections in 2008 and 2010.

Malszycki is a legislative aide for Rep. Warren Petryk (R-Eleva).

Online court records show Malszycki was in Dane County Court on Monday. Records show she waived the right to a preliminary hearing, the counsel entered a not guilty plea for her and Malszycki was bound over for trial.

Malszycki is due back in court on March 4 for a pre-trial hearing.
