Vruwink Will Not Be Charged

(5/21/14) The mayor of Wisconsin Rapids will not be charged, after he posted his spring re-election primary ballot on Facebook.

 Zach Vruwink said earlier that he took a picture of his February ballot, and put it on his Facebook page -- but he immediately removed it after learning it was a felony.  The district attorney in neighboring Clark County investigated the matter.  Showing a marked ballot to somebody else calls for an 18-month prison sentence and a ten-thousand-dollar fine.  The topic was publicized in the 2012 recall elections, when State Democratic Party chairman Mike Tate posted a picture of his ballot online.
