Something Smells In Waukesha County, Wisconsin– And It’s Not The Cheese - Forbes
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 12:54 AM by Ellipsis
Could it be a rat?

<snip>


A blogger over at Daily Kos did a little digging into the Waukesha County election results from November, 2006 and made some unusual discoveries. On the ‘top sheet’ of the summary of the election, the County reports that a total of 156,804 votes were cast.

Yet, when we review the totals for each individual race, we discover that in the Governor’s race, a total of 176,112 votes were cast while there were 174,047 votes for Attorney General and 170, 440 votes in the competition for Secretary of State.

Thus, approximately 20,000 more votes are recorded in these individual election contests over and above the total number of those who are reported to have voted.

<snip>

Yet, when the Daily Kos blogger phoned the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, he was told, “We are aware of it, we are looking into it, and we cannot comment on it.” These are hardly comforting words five years after the election in question.

1. Contrary to what some are claiming, something is very wrong.
This election is far from being kosher.

6. Thats is the point, and it shows a pattern of inconsistency.
The main reason I posted this was the feedback GAB gave the person from KOS on the phone.

8. And in 2004 Waukesha County had unusually high .....
..... turn out of registered voters. With some precincts in the high 80 to 90%
turn out #s. Nationally the average is around 55 to maybe 60%. Again these
#s were produced w/ Nickolaus as county clerk.

Funny every time there has been a discrepancy of the vote it has always favored
the republicans. If this was random chance then it would be 50 50 R v D.

9. This is obvious and blatant vote rigging.
Those who want to believe otherwise are all a flutter about how the RepubliCON clerk's other mistakes and numbers all match this mistake. But the truth is it's not about the numbers. It's about this RepubliCONS trustworthiness.

This RepubliCON activist should be good at rigging the numbers considering that she has had 13 years of experience at it. This RepubliCON has shown she is more than willing to perform criminal acts for her RepubliCON pals.

It truly amazes me how easily Americans, and Democrats in particular, so willingly accept her "human error" story at face value. It's as if they don't live in the same world I live in. The world I live in shows that when something smells and it's very important to very rich and powerful people, then it's likely very rotten.

The same types of excuses were all trotted out when a 32 year-old unemployed veteran, Alvin Greene, won a 16-point victory over his seemingly much more qualified opponent, 64 year-old Vic Rawl, a former judge and legislator. The excuses about his name being at the beginning of the alphabet and the determination of the Democratic party in South Carolina to ignore the obvious vote rigging were just amazing.

It doesn't seem to bother most folks that their votes are not truly being counted. That if you get a few instances like this, then there is probably a whole lot more going on. And the Democrats determination to ignore blatant and obvious vote rigging is beyond comprehension.

I wonder at what point will it matter that America can not conduct a fair and accurate election?

10. In 2008 precincts in Harlem and Bedford Styvesant
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 07:17 AM by Botany
(Brooklyn) were the populations are >85% black recorded 0 votes
for Barack Obama in the New York State Primary .... to deny that
election fraud and crimes have been and are still taking place is
shocking.

BTW I have been doing election work in Ohio since 2004 the idea
that republican county clerk Kathy Nickolaus lost the equivalent of
20 precincts worth of votes or in other words didn't notice that the
votes from a city of 38,000 were not in that day's tallies is pure bullshit.
And then to find those missing votes more than 24 hours later on her
personal p.c. (one that she refused to tie into the state's voter d-base)
really pushes credibility.

If this is a matter of national security why not waterboard Ms. Nickolaus
to find out what she knows?

11. Waterboarding Nickolaus? No way!
Do you know how precious water is? Why not just use bamboo slivers under the fingernails?
