My name is NOT Sally Stupid!!

What the fuck is going on in Wisconsin, and why are the Republicans allowed to steal yet another election?!?!?




*rhetorical questions*

2. I don't think we've heard the last of this one yet.
It stinks to high heaven and the person involved has been reprimanded before for her work.

8. If she has altered electronic records on her personal computer, she is done.
The records would have been saved. Even if she is smart enough to put in a new harddrive, footprints that will nail her were left. Wisconsin democrats, hire a team of computer experts.

11. A mysterious fire mysteriously destroyed all the Waukesha paper ballots
in a 1/2 barrel behind Kathy Nickolaus's house.

"I don't know what happened. I was getting ready to store them in my garage with past election ballots. I put them there while I was rummaging in my purse for the keys and POOF! They just caught fire. Of course I tried to put them out, but apparently grabbed the lighter fluid on accident. I think I saw a union member running down the street though..."

12. Scan-Tron?
(yes I do know nobody uses transparent boxes anymore)

I am still not sure I completely trust scan-tron tabulating.

Once numbers get tabulated into a computer there is opportunity for tampering, flipping, or whatnot.

13. ALL recounts are hand counted here. All votes on paper.
So we'll see.

5. The Republicans have no shame. They will steal any election.
Why do we vote. Just put them in charge.

We came out in full force. I think the Republicans were waiting to see how close the results were
that's why Prosser didn't even blink and didn't concede last night. He knew that there was a cherry on top waiting for him somewhere.

This was all planned.

Again, there was a record-breaking turnout yesterday all over the state. And, 19 counties turned Democratic. Yet, Prosser wins? It makes no sense. The county in question is big and RED, but it's only the largest next to Milwaukee. It makes no sense.

9. Prediction: There will be NO investigation.
No one will go to jail. The Democrats will meekly say "okay" and bend over and take it up the ass yet again.

And it won't change until there is revolution. Flat-out, hang 'em from their balconies, guillotines in the streets, REVOLUTION.

That's how rotten to the core this nation has become. America had a nice run, but it's over now.

10. Maybe it needs to happen until there really IS a revolution.
I don't know what it is going to take to wake people up.

15. Apparently it's not much different than the rest of the country
Let's see ... elected idiot Puke Walker governor. Check. Walker goes nuts, just weeks ago. Check, but with a lot of outrage. Walker crony makes election close enough to steal. HOW THE FUCK DID THIS HAPPEN IF WISCONSIN IS THE WORKERS' PARADISE, LAND OF LAFOLLETTE????? Then, let's see, Walker crony in fact STEALS election.

Nothing will happen. I'll bet a month's pay on it today.

Nobody goes to jail. Prosser stays in office, ratifies Walker's goddamned bill. Wisconsin Dems bend over meekly and ask "May I have another, sir?"

I hope I'm wrong. But I doubt it.

16. Yeah, the 8 straight weeks of protests, 8 organized recalls with 2 filed,
putting an unknown against a tenured SC judge who won his last election with 99.5% of the vote in jeopardy in eight weeks.

Yeah, you don't know us.

17. You're right. I don't know you. All I can see is RESULTS.
And the results aren't encouraging. So far, they're just like Ohio and Indiana.

I don't believe anyone will be recalled in WI. Sure as hell no Puke is going to jail for election fraud. You've got a Puke governor and Puke majorities in both houses of the legislature.

And the thing that kills me about it is, I always believed that Wisconsin was one of the strong Dem states. Obviously, you're right ... I *don't* know you.

What I DO know are results. Prosser's keeping his seat, nobody<'s going to jail, and Walker's reign of terror gets rubber stamped by the SC. End of story.[br />
And if they can do that in Wisconsin, the rest of us are well and truly screwn.

19. I have faith, but with the media not paying much attention, I hope WI Dems
can move quickly to remedy this situation.

Not a fucking word. Wake up. It's no accident they're useless and spineless.
