Occams Razor and Wisconsin
Okay, so we are to believe a hyper partisan Republican county clerk who has had issues with how she handles elections in the past somehow forgot/misplaced a whole towns result in this election?

I am not even from WI and was watching the election and the returns like a hawk and wondering about Waukesha. But I don't know nothing from WI.

Whatever it would seem to me she would be watching MUCH more closely and carefully then myself. And yet more then 24 hours after the election results are in she comes up with 7k votes for her candidate?

OR

Something smells.

Occams Razor says something like all things being equal the more simple solution is usually what is the case.

I dunno, like I said I don't know from WI but this seems really weird.

1. I'll never believe this was a legitimate election........
I'm not sure elections matter anymore. Watch Donald Trump be our next President. It's like a "reality show" on TV and it's SO obvious that that's what it is.

4. Unfortunately, too many people will feel the same. The process is tainted.
And nothing is going to make these results acceptable to BOTH sides.

A Bloody Fluster Cluck.

2. A logical approach would be to find out what the Democrat on the canvass board has to say
I am a bit amazed that it appears nobody else gives a shit about finding out what this woman has to say about the found votes. She would be in a unique position to at least describe what occurred. Need more info from and about this woman!

3. To a Republican, Occams Razor would confirm Kathy Nickolaus' excuse.
Forget Occam. You need a secure voting system, under watch, where ballots are properly audited, and fully recounted as necessary.
