The BRAD BLOG has been reporting on the many election administration failures of Nickolaus going back as far as 2010 when she refused to change a number of procedures at the request of County Executives after an audit found serious deficiencies in her security processes, such as failing to post election results online, and tracking them only on a personal computer in her own office.

8. She shouldn't have been given the choice of stepping aside rather than resigning.

If the shoe was on the other foot (i.e. Repugs being on the short-end of Waukesha shenanigans), then she would have been forced to resign.

9. Not good enough.

She is a threat to democracy and should have no involvement in elections whatsoever.
