2. I can't explain Kathy Nicklaus but
This article and other reports that I have heard about Wisconsin clearly indicates that they should have more openness. Apparently according to the Initiative & Referendum Institute, they don't even have the option of putting ballot questions before the public yet. Clearly they're one of the states that should be calling for one which gives them the opportunity to implement one that is good which may be better than many others which might be designed for the benefit of those that like to manipulate them.

This should be one of the demands for Occupy Wisconsin even if it is a conservative district that doesn't mean they should be able to hide the methods they used especially when it appears as if the initial results would have given victory to JoAnne Kloppenburg. Clearly this should justify a verified recount. I don't know what they've done since then but hopefully those at the protests will bring it up again when they go through the recall process again next January when Scott Walker and the other Republicans are eligible.

Just a couple links worth checking Initiative & Referendum Institute history of Wisconsin ballot
