Bravo Wisconsinites -Waukesha County Clerk Nickolaus Steps Aside For The Recall Elections

http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/04/waukesha-county-clerk-nickolaus-steps-aside-for-the-recall-elections.php
<snip>
Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus has announced that she is stepping aside from her office’s main duty of election administration, in the wake of continued problems with vote counts that have become a center of controversy in this stronghold for Wisconsin Republicans.

This past Tuesday, Waukesha’s full vote count was delayed into Wednesday — actually boosting Mitt Romney’s final lead from five points up to seven points, when all was completed — after the county’s computer system didn’t work. Instead of an orderly online posting of results, employees had to have the paper slips from voting machines hand-delivered from throughout the county, and then post them all over the walls of a county meeting room.

As a result, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, County Executive Dan Vrakas demanded that Nickolaus either resign her office, or hand off election duties to staff for the upcoming recall election against Gov. Scott Walker — in which the result is expected to be close, with no allowable room for error by local officials.

Nickolaus is thus handing off the election duties to her deputy, Kelly Yaeger, and will instead handle other areas of her office, such as issuing marriage licenses.

1. That's very good news. Lets hope that Yaeger is more honest than her boss is. n/t

2. The way I see it...

if she can't be trusted to run this election honestly then how can she be trusted for any other election? She should be forced to resign.
