Waukesha voting irregularities go back to 2004...
Reposting this from DailyKos for the day crowd.
<http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/04/11/965994/-Waukes... >

Waukesha 2004, Bush v. Kerry.

Apparently in 2004 the polls in Waukesha were teeming with voters as the Waukesha County Clerk's office showed a 97.63% turn out. No, that's not a typo. 97.63%

Of the 236,642 registered voters in Waukesha on Nov 2, 2004 apparently 231,031 of them came out in a hint of rain and drizzle and did their civic duty.

Just to put this in perspective, Australia has compulsory (mandatory) voting and their turnout is 95%.

The estimated population of Waukesha in July of 2004 was 375,350 with 91,530 residents under the age of 18. (source) Leaving out solely residents under the age of 18 that leaves 283,820 residents that are of voting age (remember that number, it will be referenced again). That's an 83% voter registration number which is well above both the national average and Wisconsin's average.

Kathy Nickolaus bragged about 2004 turnout on the eve of the 2008 election:

(much much more)

1. On any given day, 7-10 percent of the registered voters are dead or have moved out of county.

This is almost statistically impossible, unless the number was adjusted for eligible voters. Even then, this is very hard to believe.

2. Whoever "counts" the votes determines who "wins".

5. The best article I've seen yet
I still haven't figured out how they "gamed" the system but this article gives me a hint....phoney registrations = phoney votes...or maybe phantom votes...

I'm struck by a rather strange thought....bear with me on this...

Remember how Wisconsin Repubs keep claiming the Democrats are guilty of "voter fraud" but have never been able to prove it? The Republicans are really, really good at a technique called DISPLACEMENT. IOW..they accuse us of doing what they have been doing all along. I think that's what's going on here.

The only thing I can't figure out is how they get around the "numbered ballots" and the "two pairs of eyes" on each voter/ballot.

Something is really wrong but I'm not smart enough to figure it out.

6. I can't find the statistic but turnout over 90% (I think that's it)
Edited on Tue Apr-12-11 08:40 AM by mod mom
is usually an indication of election fraud. Voter turnout among Af Am in 2008 was 68% to give a comparison.

8. And now, 7 years later, they're still getting away with it
A couple years in real federal prison for Nickolaus and all of the criminal colleagues would do wonders for this behavior.
