Election fraud allegations fly in close Wisconsin Supreme Court race
Election fraud allegations fly in close Wisconsin Supreme Court race

Wisconsin citizens and election experts are questioning the veracity of the states Supreme Court race, which the Associated Press reports left-wing legal activist JoAnne Kloppenburg won by 204 votes over Justice David Prosser, out of the more than 1.4 million votes.

On an estimated more than 10,000 ballots in Dane County, Wisconsin, where the state capital Madison is, voters selected only a pick in the Supreme Court race, while leaving even the hotly contested mayoral and county executive choices blank. That raises red flags for election experts like Scott St. Clair of the Freedom Foundation, a conservative think tank.

This is the state that wrote the book on squeaker elections, St. Clair told The Daily Caller. I wouldnt put it past somebody in Wisconsin to be selectively revealing ballots or conveniently finding ballots because this is the kind of stuff weve seen in the past before. I think its also important to note that Wisconsin and Illinois are neighbors and how they vote in Chicago doesnt necessarily stop at the state line.

Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund, who authored Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, said Wisconsins sketchy election history ....

===========
Why is Milwaukee such an outlier with a 5% red shift?

2. What a pathetic bunch of SoreLosermen.
Funny how the repigs deny that election tampering is a complete non-issue until they lose a close election. No wait, not funny, asinine.

3. So Chicago is centrally located in our Nation
I guess that explains why I crave Chicago style pizzas from time to time. Must be the wind.

4. Considering the huge Dem victories in other races, I'd suggest it is they who cheated.
The fact that this particular race is close doesn't jive with the other contests that day. They're probably kicking themselves for not cheating more efficiently. LOL.

5. Claims 10,000 left most of the ballot blank.

To start, I'm sure that is a wild exaggeration. Second, that would mean that somewhere, there was a conspiracy to stuff ballot boxes, which would mean there would be 10,000 illegal votes in that county. Easily verified if in only one county. They will try to get 10,000 votes thrown out. Just watch.

6. Explanation, please...
First of all, a voter has the right to vote for just one thing on a ballot.
Secondly, I don't know how voting systems work in Dane and Milwaukee counties, but here in NE Wisconsin in my little county, at the end of the night, the vote tallies and the voter numbers have to match. For instance, here, at the end of the night ballots and voter numbers must match before they are even counted. My mother works at elections and we just had this discussion this morning. So, I'm assuming those numbers must match in more populated counties also. If 10,000 people voted, there should be 10,000 ballots(or voter machine tallies)---makes sense.We don't have voting machines here, but ballots (after voter/ballot tally matches through a hand count), ballots are taken to county courthouse where they are fed into a machine and tallied. I don't see much room for miscalculations here...do you? Am I just being naive????

7. I don't have any facts, so I'll smear ya with "because this is the kind of stuff ...
...weve seen in the past before. I think its also important to note that Wisconsin and Illinois are neighbors and how they vote in Chicago doesnt necessarily stop at the state line."


My goodness, now we're guilty of being geographically adjacent to Illinois.

8. I'm sure they could be more pathetic if they tried much harder
but this certainly will suffice :rofl:

Whatever it takes to impose voter IDs so they win a squeaker like this next time!!
