Dane County D.A.: "Just because someone is putting something on the Internet doesn't mean it's true."
Capitol Report: The recall Scott Walker effort, to date, has been anything but dull. (Capital Times,11/24/2011)
Excerpt: At least locally, the only incident that's been mentioned so far that sounds like it might result in charges is the petition-ripping incident on Midvale Boulevard last week. Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said Wednesday that his office had not yet received anything from the Madison Police Department about the incident, but he reiterated that damaging a petition is a class I felony, punishable by a $10,000 fine, up to three-and-a-half years in prison or both.
As for the rest of the information floating around online, Ozanne stressed that "just because someone is putting something on the Internet doesn't mean it's true."
