Just sayin'. What would they be saying if 7000 votes suddenly turned up in Milwaukee?

10. She will have the computer taken away from her by laws. Republicans
that care more about their party than they care about winning should be sweating bullets. The fallout from the fiasco that is about to start is going to devastate the republican party.

8. Altered electronic records do not go away. If the woman altered vote
totals, she has made a mistake that will end with her behind bars.

This needs to be investigated posthaste, but it won't be.

29. I disagree while the election was a state matter
Voter fraud hurts all of use, especially because they have done it before, and if they keep getting away with it they will keep doing it.

who are perpetuating the fraud. Why would Walker or Fitzgerald start an investigation that would lead back to them?

12. Fox News reported--one whole town did not turn in their votes.
This is neat Folks, the next election let us find a
town and report --Here are our votes, a few days after
the fact.
But you sure as heck better count them.

More and More I fear for our Democracy.

18. Smells REALLY fishy...
http://www.onewisconsinnow.org/press/election-returns-w...

On Tuesday, shockingly-large turnout suddenly emerged from Waukesha County, which did not comport with either the results of previous spring elections, or even internal estimates from city officials mid-day. In fact, a Waukesha City Deputy Clerk said at 1:18pm that turnout was very typical, predicting somewhere between 20 to 25 percent. As Tuesday night wore on, reporting in Waukesha County stopped altogether for hours, leaving observers to wonder what was going on. Then suddenly, results suggesting massive turnout started to pour in rapidly with Prosser adding dramatically to his total by a 73-27 percent margin.

36. I'd have to say the clerk was probably
helping * find those pesky WMDs during that not funny episode of the whitehouse reporters dinner.

I don't think this crap is remotely funny. At all.

38. Waukesha County to audit election equipment Aug. 18, 2010
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 06:41 PM by Zorra
Clerk criticized for not sharing data with other departments
snip--
County Corporation Counsel Thomas Farley told the committee Monday that as an elected official with responsibility for elections, "If she wants to keep everything secret, she probably can.

"I don't know if that's wise or what she should do, but if she wants to and the public is satisfied that that's what they want - someone who keeps everything secret - that's up to them."

The issue came to a head when Nickolaus removed the election results collection and tallying system from the county computer network this spring and installed it on standalone personal computers in her office. She has said they are backed up with redundant systems.


Director of Administration Norman A. Cummings said Nickolaus has been uncooperative with attempts to have information technologists review the system and confirm the backups.
