11. Here is some interesting reading about Wisconsin.
Whoops! It's using Richard Charnin's numbers!

It makes a lot of sense to me. Must be something wrong with my brain?

FRAUD 4 Spread Sheets & Vote Bags
May 13th, 2011 | Author: Dennis Kern

Richard Charnin is a member of the Election Integrity Group on face book, who has compiled a spreadsheet which leads to a question. If Kloppenburg did better than Obama in 24 of the 72 counties, why did she do so much worse in the largest counties?

I am not a spreadsheet guy, but Richard lays it out so even I can see the anomaly he is talking about. He is looking at the percentage of vote Obama received and comparing that percentage with that of Kloppenburg in the Supreme Court Election. The assumption is that the percentage of vote that went to Obama in the presidential election should be close to the percentage of vote that went to Kloppenburg, and it works out.ALMOST. Here is the suspicious anomaly:

Below is the anomaly as described by Richard

This is a comparison of the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the 2008 presidential elections.
Prosser leads by 7,000 out of nearly 1.5 million votes.

In 2008, Obama had 56.2% of the recorded vote, a 415,000 vote margin out of nearly 3 million votes. Considering the heavy union turnout, how did Kloppenburgs vote share decline by 6.5% from Obamas?

Kloppenburg did better than Obama in 10 small counties (total 50,000 votes) but worse in 10 large counties (550,000 votes).

In Milwaukee County, Obama had 67.3%, Kloppenburg 56.4% of 229,000 votes. Why the 10.9% decline?

In Waukesha County, Obama had 36.6%, Kloppenburg 26.2% of 125,000 votes. Why the 10.4% decline?

In Waukesha, McCain defeated Obama by 59,813 votes out of 233,435 recorded.

Prosser defeated Kloppenburg by a nearly identical 59,505 votes out of just 125,070.

Quite a gain.

YES. Quite a gainindeed.
You can look at the documentation of this anomaly on the spread sheet on Richards web site

One anomaly leads to another VOTE BAGS

There's a lot more.
