Lehman Takes 21st Senate District; Wanggaard Recount Decision Friday


Former Sen. John Lehman has been officially announced the winner of the 21st Senate District recall election. The Racine County Clerk's office completed its board of canvass Tuesday. John Lehman (D-Racine) has officially unseated Sen. Van Wanggaard (R-Racine) in the recall election.

Members of the Racine County Board of Canvassers met Tuesday morning to certify the results of the June 5 election.

Wanggaard has yet to concede and campaign officials are investigating allegations of voter fraud; however, Wendy Christensen, Racine County Clerk, told Fox 6 news that she was not aware of any problems at the polling places on election day.

Mike Haas, general counsel for the Goverment Accountability Board, said the agency has gotten some phone calls, emails, and copies of blog posts but nothing formal.
