Can someone please tell me where Randy Hopper and Scott Suder live?

From MAL Contends comes this interesting bit of information regarding Republican State Senator Randy Hopper's living situation:
The filing date on the divorce indicated in Hopper's legal filings [Fond du Lac County Case Number 2010FA000374] reads "08-18-2010."

I'm guessing Hopper was not living in the W5192 RIENZI Road house in October and November, 10 days before the November 2010 election day.

But the GAB says he was legally a resident at this W5192 RIENZI Road house?

Former GOP tool, U.S. Attorney Steven Biskupic for the Eastern District of Wisconsin (2001-08), was all too happy to file voting fraud charges even when as Dan Bice points out, there was no intent to break the law. See Bice, April 12, 2007 (MJS).

Why is not Hopper facing an investigation? Is he not part of the alleged massive voting fraud from which the GOP says they must protect us by restricting voting access for Wisconsin citizens?
While MAL is wondering where Sen. Hopper really lived - and more importantly, voted - in November 2010, I'm wondering the exact same thing about Republican State Rep. Scott Suder. According to Rep. Suder's Assembly web page and the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board's Voter Public Access database, Suder lives at 102 South 4th Avenue in Abbotsford, an address Suder used to vote in the 2010 partisan primary and general elections, as well as the January 2011 spring primary election.

However, while Rep. Suder's voting address is listed as 102 South 4th Avenue in Abbotsford, his driver's license must give a different address, as a recent traffic lists an address of 501 Kreutzer Street in Athens as Rep. Suder's home address. That means that if the Voter ID legislation that Rep. Suder supports were in effect today, he would not be able to vote in the district he represents in the State Assembly, as Athens is actually located in the 35th State Assembly district.

  1. I am not an expert on this, but when I contacted Suder he said that this was his parents home and they took care of his car while he was in Iraq, they registered his car while he was gone and the check they sent in had their address, so the car was registered under their address.

    Couple things on that, and sorry I did not ask him this when I had him on the phone, 1. i believe he came home from Iraq April 2010. So he had not had time in 10 months to switch his registration over to "his" address? Second, don't you get a ticket based on the address of your drivers license? There is no need to change your address unless you physically move to that address, so my understanding is that according to their "voter ID" bill, he would not be able to vote and he appears to not be living in the district he "represents".
