Please - Don't help the Repukes!!!!!!
Just over an hour ago votes were found due to an "error."

The person who made the error may have worked for Prosser.

The person who made the error has a questionable past.

Not one person here has enough facts to make a case one way or the other.

But every god damn repuke is going to say move along, nothing to see, sore losers!

Reverse the situation, THEY WOULD BE SCREAMING TO HIGH HEAVENS!

So potentially all future negotiations and investigations can be stymied. Again no one has enough information yet so declaring it an error is a very bad political and negotiations ploy.

1. Who on DU is helping the republicans? And the votes weren't found "an hour ago".

8. comments that it appears to just be an error
Nate Silver saying it looks legit... Repubs win because they repeat a lie over and over.

This could be a legitimate error, it could also be massive fraud. To hard to tell with the data available now.

There is not a need to lie like a repub. Converserly there is no need to provide them one damn bit of reinforcement.

2. Perhaps Ms. Nickolaus held the votes back
and changed the percentages to favor her old boss, David Prosser.

6. And we will.
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 08:55 PM by PeaceNikki
If there's one thing you guys should know after the last 8 weeks, Wisconsin Dems will not give up.

And if in the end Klopp loses, we fucked some shit up. This was a non-partisan spring election with ONE statewide race. We brought Klopp up from a THIRTY POINT DEFICIT she held 8 weeks ago. To get it CLOSE to 50/50 is a fucking miracle.

We have 8 recalls in the works, 2 filed. We're not done and this election was not the totality of our fight. It is one piece.

11. I don't understand why you appear so standoffish
about the idea of investigating? Am I just reading you wrong? I don't feel I need to give the republican executive the benefit of the doubt. This isn't a court of law, it's the court of public opinion and I rule it looks shady.

13. I believe Ed Suspicious and I have the same take
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 09:05 PM by rufus dog
Let the mob gather! Liberals aren't crazy and will let facts come in, either way we can get some mileage out of what seems to be a situation that has a certain aroma.

by the way - Welcome to DU Ed

17. If you chill and read the OP you will clearly see
That I said we are sorely missing facts!

I also see you are concerned that I stated the discrepancy was found just over an hour ago.

Well fucking excuse me the discrepancy was announced just over one hour ago.
