Wisconsin court race jolted by uncounted ballot find
Something smells mighty fishy in Wisconsin.
In a shocking race which by all appearances was a referendum upon recently elected Governor Walker (R), things went a bit “wacky” when thousands
of “uncounted” ballots showed up in Waukesha County, a Republican stronghold.
Officials in Waukesha County on Thursday said a final review of paperwork and records from a closely watched Wisconsin Supreme Court election
uncovered thousands of uncounted votes, a potentially stunning development that could upend the contest.
Unofficial returns on Wednesday gave the union-backed challenger, JoAnne Kloppenburg, a narrow 204-vote statewide lead over Republican David
Now, why would I refer to a Wisconsin Supreme Court race as being so important? Because before the controversy surrounding newly-elected Governor
Walker’s union-busting venture the union-backed candidate had virtually ZERO chance of beating the conservative incumbent. A snowball in the
hottest place you can possibly imagine had a better chance than she did. After Walker’s shenanigans, suddenly that little snowball actually could
make a run of it.
Make a run of it?
Lo, and behold, the union-backed Kloppenburg appeared to have bested the conservative incumbent Prosser.
Wait! Now from Reuters, reposted on Raw Story, we find out that over 7500 votes in a Republican stronghold somehow were not counted. Kloppenburg’s
lead just so happened to stand at 204 votes before this story came out with 100% precincts reporting.
Now seriously folks. Does this sound like total B.S., or is it just me? Please read some juicy tidbits from bradblog.com…
Check this quote from the National Review Online, a conservative website, reposted on Bradblog.com…
Prior to the election, Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus was heavily criticized for her decision to keep the county results on an antiquated
personal computer, rather than upgrade to a new data system being utilized statewide. Nickolaus cited security concerns for keeping the data herself -
yet when she reported the data, it did not include the City of Brookfield, whose residents cast nearly 14,000 votes.
So, with all this talk on ATS about rigged elections. With all this discussion about Governor Walker and his radical ideology, union-busting tactics
and Koch brothers connections. With all this reputation riding on the line…..
Honestly, what do you think?
If I were a gambling man, and I am, I’d cry foul on this horse race.
