Will WI Attorney General Move Against Voter Fraud Planners On Facebook?

We learn in this Mother Jones magazine article that people are bragging on Facebook that they plan to fraudulently collect Walker recall signatures and destroy the signed petitions.  Which Wisconsin voting officials say would be felonious behavior.
These plans, discussed in Facebook posts that were first reported by the blog PolitiScoop, entail posing as recall supporters and gathering signatures, only to later destroy the petitions. They also include telling Wisconsinites that they can only sign one recall petition (which is false—they can sign different petitions as long as they each correspond to a different organization) and directing signature collectors to the homes of registered sex offenders. (Requests for comment were sent to each of the Facebook posters who allowed messages from other users.)

In one post, Will R. Jenkins says, "I'll be able to destroy 15-20K signatures." If things go well, he adds, he might even "be able to destroy upwards of 15-20% of the entire collected ballots in the state of Wisconsin":
Our Wisconsin Attorney General can have Facebook ID these people in a nanosecond.
