214. here's what I think
You may be able to help, because I don't think I can stand to sit through the press conference again.

My recollection is that at some point, Nickolaus says that she showed the canvassing board members how the canvass results differed from the unofficial results -- in effect, substantiating her account that the differences can be attributed to Brookfield and the other two things she mentioned.

I think that is the "jibing" at issue here. I think Kitzinger is saying that while Nickolaus did show her numbers that seem to "add up" to the differences between the unofficial and official results, she has no way of vouching for Nickolaus's version of the unofficial numbers. So (I conjecture) she isn't backing away from the canvass, but she is pushing back against being cited as support for Nickolaus's explanation of the disparity.

That construction makes sense to me for at least two reasons: (1) Kitzinger's statement is rather long, and she had ample opportunity to say that she has no confidence in the canvass result, if that is what she meant. (2) To the extent that the statement describes the actual canvass, it is hard to see why Kitzinger would say she had no idea where the canvass numbers came from -- whereas it is easy to see why she would say she had no idea where the unofficial numbers came from.

Of course if Kitzinger says that she has no confidence in the canvass, that would... change things.
