6. I'd like to see an independent audit/polling commissioned by the DNC.
Edited on Fri Apr-08-11 01:58 AM by Old and In the Way
The Waukesha votes seem way to red when you take a cursory look at the other counties...most seem to ranger between 60/40 and 40/60 split. Dane is huge blue, but that's easily explainable. What's the "no-brainer reason for Waukesha being deep red? I'd conduct a poll of all registered voters. Ask them-

(1) Did you vote?
(2) What is your Party ID?
(3) Who did you vote for?
(4) Why did you vote for your candidate (probably a multiple choice type question).

Those that refuse to answer, assume Republican/DNV. Those that answer Democrat....ask them if they'd sign an affidavit to that effect. I see no reason why a Democrat wouldn't be happy to participate in validating the election results. I see no reason why a Republican would want to provide false information if that's going to make a stronger case for election theft. And wouldn't it be interesting if a significant % of registered Republicans signed an affidavit attesting to the fact they they voted for a Democrat? The easiest votes to steal are the votes of the people who may not be voting for their Party's candidate.

The benefits would be:

(1) It would show the DNC is really interested in protecting our franchise's right to have their vote counted.
(2) It would validate the results, in which case we can at least feel better that the system is working and that we obviously still have work to do on messaging. Or
(3) it will contradict and invalidate the results. Not legally of course, but morally. Maybe shame the guy to resign his office. And that would further underscore the image of a corrupt and unethical Party that is criminally hijacking our democracy. Might help build the case for real election reform and a possible criminal investigation. Certainly wouldn't help Republicans recruit new voters for future elections, I'd think.

PS On edit. Can you imagine how freaked out Republicans would be? How would they spin their outrage? No problem...hell, I'd offer to share the results with them.
