Skip to comments.Prosser Now Up 7,000+ Votes After Error Is Corrected
Posted on 04/07/2011 3:15:35 PM PDT by smoothsailing
Supreme Court justice David Prosser has picked up more than 7,381 votes in Waukesha County, a conservative county outside of Milwaukee, as part of the statewide canvass following the election for Supreme Court on Tuesday. The total gives Prosser a comfortable lead as the canvass continues Friday.
The error came when Waukesha County clerk Kathy Nickolaus failed to save some 14,000 votes that came from wards in Brookfield before passing the vote total along to the Associated Press. County officials discovered the mistake Wednesday and shared the information with state election officials on Thursday. Prosser won Waukesha County with more than 70 percent of the vote there.
Wisconsin sources say that the paper trail on the votes will be obvious and difficult for anyone to dispute. Either votes from Brookfield were counted in the initial tally or they werent. Still, the discovery of the extra votes is sure to stoke the embers of the heated battles that have taken place across the state over the past two months, particularly because Nickolaus, the woman at the center of the controversy, is a Republican activist. A posting on the website of the Republican Women of Waukesha County indicates that Kathy Nickolaus recently served as president of that group.
But several sources have pointed to questions about her competence in the past. In August, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that her superiors ordered an audit of the county clerk's election equipment and system beginning with the September primary despite several memos she sent to the committee over the weekend defending her practices and resisting the move.
Spmeone’s goos is cooked...
Hope it is Knosspfoopplebanger -or whoever Prosser was running against.
LOL! I guess the dems will be working all night and discovering ballots in the trunks of cars.....
George is not going be happy!
That’s going to be pretty hard for the Dem to overcome.
Wow. Are you kidding me? Our side finally learned how to play! Bravo!
This is just too delicious and so much better than finding that extra ballot box in the trunk of a staffer’s car.
Praise the Lord! Thank You Jesus!!!!
Weekly Standard confirming 7,000+ new votes for Prosser!!!
Why such an error? What if they never caught it? Doesn’t make me feel very good about the voting system there.
That's a lot of trunks, perhaps this time they will opt for a full sized van.
I hope this is accurate, from what I’m hearing it is.
If so, Kloppenburg will have to pay for a recount.
Haha, YES!!! Folks, I think the Dems got outsmarted this time. I think some of the more liberal precincts held back their final numbers during the the wee hours of the morning until the final vote tallies from the rest of the state came in so that the union thugs could determine how many more votes they needed to manufacture to put their left-wing candidate over the top. They obviously never anticipated a bomb like this in response!
HOW SWEET IT IS!!! GO GOP AND GO WISCONSIN!!!
Guarantee if the clerk was a Rat, you would never hear a thing. They would be shredded like they were in that other county.
Fox seems to be about to run with it.............I say we need to get one of our best shadowing the SOS.....Soros is on the phone with him now.
All for Prosser?
That seems odd.
Were a bunch of Prosser votes intentionally removed from the system or something?
This is a strong defeat for unions. The libs and unions will be found illegitimate if a large number of votes magically appear. Prosser will win and so will America. The back of the union thugs has been broken. Great leadership from Walker.
Great, it worked for us this time, but these shenanigans have got to stop. It makes this country look like a freaking Banana Republic.
Interesting response by the republicans: you don’t manufacture votes, you wait for the final tally, allow the dems to make their illegal moves, and then you produce uncounted, legal votes.
It is a strategy, and it’s legal. Hold backs.
Let’s see how the dems counteract it.
