Posting this separate--it looks like a net 7,000 vote swing to the R is about to happen in WI
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 05:05 PM by Godhumor
The Waukesha County Clerk planned a 5:30 p.m. news conference today to discuss its vote totals amid reports that it failed to include the votes for Brookfield in the results it sent The Associated Press on Election Night.

It could represent a more than 7,000-vote swing in an election that whipped back and forth this afternoon as county canvass totals came in.

Brookfield City Clerk Kris Schmidt said she sent her numbers to the county clerk's office Tuesday night that showed David Prosser with 10,859 votes and JoAnne Kloppenburg with 3,456. She said those numbers did not change in the postmortem she did after the election.

"I have no clue whats going on. she said. "No one has officially told me whats going on."

This is a massive mistake, if, indeed, it is a mistake.

Are we ever going to have true blue elections anymore? How could this be true? Failed to include 7K votes?

6. All it takes is one f-cking corrupt County Clerk to sink the whole thing.
Where are the Democratic Party election protection people in WI? Were they all detained at the Wakesha County line?

Cheezitz.

10. I've done Election Protection myself for several cycles. That's why I'm
pulling out my hair trying to figure out how anything like this sort of major last-minute surprise can occur.

WTF is going on there?!? And, why are we seemingly being whipsawed about the results?

11. Even the Libyans under Gaddafi aren't afraid to say they have stolen elections ...
evidently we are -- or at least most people are sitting watching their TVs

positive that if anything were really wrong, the news reader would let them know!!

16. Yes, but that is not how America works anymore.
We all just do whatever the GOPukers want us to do, the bitching doesn't really affect them and since they are above the law - well what do you expect?

17. How about some real change for a change...
Remember when we used to talk about Election Reform here? Remember how we used to wonder why no politician has bothered to address it?

Politicians must think the words Election Reform were toxic.

18. Apparently the count tapes and the machine counts didn't match. This raised the warning flag for the
canvass.

That's from my Democratic CD chair (I am in Waukesha County)
