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.

I live in Wisconsin, and all I can say is I wouldn't put anything past Scott Walker and his bosom buddies, the Koch brothers. The Republicans in Wisconsin are evil. They have no ethics, no boundaries, no shame. They will say anything to win. We also have a crazy, right-wing supreme court justice, Prosser, who recently choked another justice. I used to be proud to live in a progressive state. Now I'm just ashamed to be associated with these a**holes.

Ok...um ...doesn't really matter if it is the republicrooks who stole his voice...It's how he makes his paper, and he should lawyer up and find out if he has grounds to sue, then get paid....and no he didn'tscrew his blood relative it was a girl/ woman that he raised who has no blood ties...still a lil creepy but....maybe he just wanted some good young sex.

now, now, first commenter. Freeman isn't banging his niece. He's banging his first wife's granddaughter who he's helped raise since she was a toddler.

@Love My Fans: Sounds like you would actually like Obama (very much) if you knew what he was really trying to do. He doesn't want to increase taxes on the "working class", households under $250k. He wants to tax the wealthy. He's no more a fan of CEOs and wealthy corps taking huge profits and paying minimal tax than you are...

LOL!!! I love how the liberal d-bag media and their minions (TMZ) label anybody that is anti-Nazism/Socialism/Communism/Pro-Capitalism/Pro-Freedom/Christian, etc., as "right wing;" but Nazis, Socialists, Communists, anti-Capitalists, anti-Freedom nutcases, Atheists, etc., are NEVER Left-wing radical extremists.

Too funny for words!!!

Was working on my computer and the TV was going in the background, and I heard Morgan Freeman... imagine my surprise when I realized it wasn't him and remembered this article. And of course it was intentional.
