"Who is Sue Wahl-Storbeck and should we trust her with our voting machines?"
"In June 2011, the Wisconsin County Clerks Association held their annual summer conference in Ladysmith. Seventy-five county clerks from across the state came together to, among other things, “assist the legislators in developing sound legislation that affects county clerks and county government by providing accurate and useful information.” WCCA Legislation Committee chair at the time was Kathy Nickolaus.
Last summer’s meeting featured a break-out session entitled, “Mastering Tough Questions from News Media, Directors and Other Audiences”:
"On January 13, 2012, Washburn emailed the GAB about this situation. When he did not receive an answer, he submitted an Open Records request to the GAB, with no reply. On May 2, he submitted another, again to no response. On May 4, he turned the case over to Dane County Attorney, and on May 14 he kicked it up to the Department of Justice.
Why is Command Central offering free machines? Why does the GAB not respond? Will the Department of Justice respond in time to help protect our June 5th recall elections?"
John Washburn: The Machine Rejected My Legally-Marked Ballot
"I was able this evening to prove conclusively that the voting system in Village of Germantown, District 1 is programmed incorrectly. This also proves the pre-election functional testing done prior to the election (aka logic and accuracy testing) pursuant to WI Stats. §5.84, failed to detect this faulty programming. The Wisconsin State Election Board (now known as the GAB) has had since September of 2005 testing guidelines designed to aid clerks to effectively test voting machines. If the GAB had given the guidelines to the Village Clerk and she had designed her test ballots according to those guidelines, then she would have discovered this faulty programming prior to the election."http://wcmcoop.com/members/john-washburn-the-machine-rejected-my-legally-marked-ballot/
