Shorewood man claims insanity for illegal voting, registrations

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A suburban Milwaukee man claims he was insane when he allegedly voted five times in the 2012 governor's recall election -- and more than once on four other Election Days.

50-year-old Robert Monroe of Shorewood has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease to 13 counts of illegal voting and registrations.

A forensic psychologist will evaluate Monroe to see if he's competent to stand trial. A judge is expected to receive a report on Monroe's condition in October.

Prosecutors said Monroe used addresses of relatives and a girlfriend's son vote multiple times in the Walker recall -- twice in the last presidential election -- twice in the 2011 Supreme Court contest -- and once illegally in an August primary in 2012.

He's also charged with registering to vote in more than one place, and giving false information to election officials.

Monroe is due back in court July 31st for a preliminary hearing.
