64. I suspect a few of those may have been honest blunders, but
a good deal of it represents intentional fraud. I also think we may be focusing too much on Brookfield. It's not clear to me how many votes were manipulated, nor exactly when it was done. I'm now thinking that at least some of the manipulation was done during the election hours via vote flipping or invalidating Kloppenberg votes, and some ballots may have been added after the polls closed. I'm not sure that the 14,000 ballots in Brookfield physically existed at the times the polls closed--it could be that some of them did, but some were electronically "created" to get a plausible tally, and then the ballots were made after the fact. I'm of two minds about the failure to report the Brookfield result to the AP on election night--it was probably a blunder which prematurely drew unwanted attention to Waukesha county, but perhaps the results were deliberately delayed in case there needed to be a small "correction" to put Prosser over the free recount threshold, and they goofed on the math.
