Wisconsin Recount - Another Chain of Custody Problem in Waukesha County -This makes *4*

Just after 1:15 p.m., Waukesha County canvassers began the recount for the Town of Genesee, wards 6, 9, and 10. They immediately identified a bag of ballots where the bag and label serial numbers matched each other but did not match the number written on the official inspection report from that precinct. The numbers were off by one. The bag and label ended with an 8 and the report number ended with a 9.

Shortly after that, someone found another version of the inspection report in the accompanying materials from the ballot bags.
One was suggested to be the original and the other a copy, but the original had numbers that did not match the tags and one was a photocopy that had the correct numbers written in by a different person, but after the document had been signed.

That person, presumably an official from the town of Genesee, claimed she made a copy of the report and wrote the correct serial number on the copy the morning after the election when she noticed it was incorrect. She was asked where the ballots were during that time and she answered that they were in a vault at the Genessee town hall.

What's odd is that she was not the official who wrote the number on the original report, but says she winessed the other person writing the original number. The bag and reports were entered as exhibits, and counted separately.

Something's brewing...
