Morgan Freeman: Conservatives STOLE My Voice!!!

7/26/2011 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It might sound a heck of a lot like Morgan Freeman -- but the actor is adamant ... he did NOT lend his soothing voice to a dramatic right-wing ad campaign in Wisconsin.

The ad -- paid for a group called "Citizens for a Strong America" -- blasts Democrat Shelly Moore in the race leading up to the Wisconsin Senate recall elections ... and if you close your eyes, it almost sounds like a scene from "Shawshank Redemption."

But Morgan's rep tells us, it ain't the actor's voice -- "A political ad running in Wisconsin by a conservative group narrated by someone trying to sound like Morgan Freeman was not narrated by Mr. Freeman. Morgan Freeman did NOT narrate that ad."

It's not the first time Morgan's voice has been co-opted in Wisconsin either -- back in 2010, Gov. Scott Walker also ran a political ad using a voice that sounded suspiciously like the actor.

Calls to Citizens for a Strong America weren't returned.

Hey, you right-wing, war loving, racist, don't tax the rich, coporate loving, *******s? Why are you on here advocating the waterboarding of the white, Conservative Christian terrorist that killed all those people in Norway?

S***!!!

@youwantme's comment made me dig stuff about Freeman. He had an affair with his step granddaughter, EW. And it was proven as it surfaced in the divorce proceedings with his wife.

Total turn off. OMG. Men are such sick perverts.

They didn't return your calls because it's a right wing scam.

As long as they didn't claim it's Morgan Freeman's voice they can use any voice they like. He needs to get over it. If someone claimed it was him and it wasn't he would have a leg to stand on. Get over it. It's not EVEN a big deal.

Drones wake up. Taxing the rich is actually going to hurt the poor and the middle class. Have you ever had a job by a poor person? When Obumer says he is going to take the rich, he is taxing you.....WAKE UP!

It's amazing that they can match Freeman's voice so well. his is done with similar technology used to fake the impossibile-to-make-in-2001 cell phone calls from flight 92 on 9/11. like this one:
"Hi mom, it's your son mark bingham. you believe me, right mom? We're about to crash and die."

So these days, if you sound like a celebrity or look like one (Kim K-alike in Old Navy ads), then you are banned from getting work in Hollywood? Yeah, that's the sign of a democracy at its best! Every day we lose more of our freedoms.

Democrats are for the people, Republicans are for the rich elite. It's that simple

What about the impersonation of Freeman on Leno's lame Olympic bits? He should sue Leno, The Tonight Show and NBC Universal.

Democraps have completely destroyed the country. "let illegals stay" "pay the unions money so they can keep bad employees around and give the money to us for campaigns" "give loans for houses to people who can't afford it" "let everyone and their grandma be on welfare" etc.. I could go on for days. They are ******* morons.
