Madison –State Representative Warren Petryk (R-Eleva) issued the following statement regarding his staff person:

“The incident under question would have occurred prior to her working in my office.  She is a valuable and excellent employee.” 

 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- An aide to a Republican state lawmaker has been charged with election fraud for allegedly voting in the wrong district in 2008 and 2010.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported Wednesday that Marcie Malszycki was charged Monday with two counts of election fraud and pleaded not guilty. She allegedly voted in Onalaska in 2008 and 2010, when her home address was in Madison.

The 33-year-old Malszycki is an aide to state Rep. Warren Petryk, a Republican from Eleva in west-central Wisconsin. In a statement, Petryk says the "incident under question" would have happened before his staff person started working in his office. He went on to call her an excellent employee.

The felony charge carries up to 3 1/2 years of combined prison and extended supervision.

Malszycki's lawyer, Steven Kohn of Milwaukee, declined to comment on the substance of the case.
