215. I don't think she was allowed to fully participate in the canvass
Edited on Tue Apr-12-11 09:53 AM by eowyn_of_rohan
She said, On Tuesday night, I received a voice message from someone in the office of Clerk Kathy Nickolaus informing me of a Wednesday canvass meeting, which I returned the next morning and said I would be able to report into the canvass by noon which I did.

This is a confusingly constructed sentence. I take it to mean:

On Tuesday night, I received a voice message from someone in the office of Clerk Kathy Nickolaus informing me of a Wednesday canvass meeting and telling me I would be able to report into the canvass by noon. I returned the call the next morning, and reported for canvassing duty by noon.

QUESTIONS:
- Who is this someone from Nickolaus's office who left Kitzinger a voice mail on election night?
- What time did s/he leave this message? Was it so late that Kitzinger didn't hear it until the next morning? If so, was that an intentional move to keep the Dem observer out of the office on Wednesday morning? They told her to arrive "by noon" according to her statement.
- What time did Nickolaus & other canvass board members (if any) arrive Wednesday morning? WHO was on site when Kitzinger arrived?

KITZINGER: "Before this telephone call, I had not been contacted...and I saw no public notice of the abnormal canvass time. The phone call simply instructed me to report by noon to begin the canvass, which I did. The canvass then proceeded as normal, with no glaring irregularities or mention of a possible 15,000 vote error in Brookfield City."

How is this meaningful participation or observation if critical information was withheld from her throughout the entire canvass process?

KITZINGER: "Kathy didn't offer an explanation about why she didn't mention anything prior to Thursday afternoon's canvass completion, but showed us different tapes where numbers seemed to add up, though I have no idea where the numbers were coming from."

I don't think Kitzinger was "snowed" but this is really BS to expect the canvass board to verify an election based on these potentially phony tapes from a hackable personal computer... ESPECIALLY after critical info had been withheld from them throughout the entire canvassing period.
