A Shorewood man facing 13 counts of voter fraud has plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
Robert Monroe, a 50-year-old health insurance executive, is accused of casting two ballots in the April 2011 Supreme Court election between David Prosser and Joann Kloppenburg, two ballots in the August 2011 recall election between Alberta Darling and Sandy Pasch, five ballots in the Gov. Scott Walker recall election in June 2012, one illegal ballot in the August 2012 partisan primary election and two ballots in the 2012 presidential election, according to a criminal complaint.
Monroe will undergo a psychological evaluation on Sept. 16, and court proceedings in the voter fraud case will resume on Oct. 14, according to online court records.
Each of the 13 charges carries a maximum prison sentence of three years and six months, as well as a $10,000 fine. The investigation into Monroe's voting history was conducted in part under the auspices of a John Doe proceedings into Walker's campaign activity, according to the complaint.
