19. not sure where you're going with this
What we seem to have is an entire city being left out of the unofficial totals on election night, then included in the canvass totals. As far as I've been able to glean from news reports, the Brookfield votes in the canvass equal the votes that were reported by the city on election night.

I see no real indication that the voting equipment itself is involved at all. But presumably the scanner tapes will give the Government Accountability Board some ability to check whether the county canvass board did its job right. If it did, it's hard for me to see the fraud scenario that involves Brookfield.

If someone really wants a fraud scenario, I'd propose that votes were stolen in some other county entirely, and Nickolaus was asked to do this just to provide a massive distraction. I don't know of any evidence for that, but it seems to make more sense than any conjecture I've heard about Waukesha.
