7,500 votes is no small matter. I bet the dems are sh**ing bricks about now. So much for the dimwit candidate declaring victory and making a concession speech.

Is there an explanation of why the votes were not turned in on the day of the election?

Thank God. I was not looking forward to overturn by the Supreme Court, Walker responds, riots in the streets, etc. Part of me is saying, "Why was it even close?" Yeah, I know, but it's really frustrating to know half the country votes with the communist party.

I think the TOTALS were wrong. There are not new votes, not like a box of votes found in a trunk.

That’s only half right. It’s a “referendum on the governor” if the Democrat wins. It’s “election fraud” if the Republican wins.

From what I understand, the results from a certain city didn’t get tabulated. These results simply added the city into the mix.

With all of the hell raising that has went on over the past several weeks, this election was a ‘referendum’ on the whole thing.

With their intensity at a fever pitch, they could do no better than 50/50, and still LOST. They HAVE GOT to be feeling like they’ve been shit at and hit right about now....

You are correct. It had something to do with a spread sheet someone screwed up on. This was not a recount with a box of votes found, these were 14,000 + votes that were not added to the totals. 10,000 + were for Prosser, the remaining were for the dimwit. BTW, democrat poll workers concurred with these totals. The dem who announced it on TV looked like she was going to cry, but she manned up and finished the announcement.

Is it possible that some law and order types bambozzled the Libs by purposely undercounting the votes, thereby ‘forcing’ the hand of the radical Left early on?

Now they’re pulling the rug out from under them.

Naw, as Rush said, our side doesn’t evn know how to play that game.

My understanding is that a county clerk, who totals returns (doesn't count any ballots) forgot to "total" the numbers after adding in results for Brookfield, so reported to the AP, one town with zero votes cast. AP took that as a final result for the entire county, and reported it as a final result for the entire county.

The clerk's report to the state is accurate, and includes the votes from Brookfield.

No. The county clerk is a GOP partisan, and Brookfield went 11:4 in favor of Prosser.

I went trolling the DUmp hoping to find some exploded-head fragments, but they were calmer than I expected. Probably self-medicated. Those who were commenting are convinced the Waukesha County Clerk will be going to Jail for “fraud” even though the Democrat party official verified the new totals.

I did learn that “Republicans control 90% of the newsmedia industry”....I did not know that ;-)

The revised numbers gave Prosser a boost of more than 7,000 votes.

Well, thanks for playing old hippie chick. Vanna has some lovely parting gifts for you. Don Pardo, tell her what she's won...

As someone said in a previous thread, the last one to count the votes wins...maybe our friend held this back to keep Dems from stealing votes, or at least from stealing enough.

A delay in reporting is not cheating, it just makes it difficult for others to cheat.

Here there wasn't a "local" error in reporting either. Anybody who was on scene, and noticed that the Brookfield line showed -o- votes cast, could call the Brookfield election officers and get that total.

Granted, the county clerk screwed up - she had the number, but omitted it from the spreadsheet she handed out. Still AP should have noted the -0- line. And the cheaters, who have more on the line, could have too.

I don't think the clerk did this on purpose - too many ways the "effort" can be defeated, with natural observations (what's up with NO votes in a city of 40,000?), followed up by a specific inquiry.

On Wednesday, two liberal groups, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and Democracy for America, announced they planned to pour another $125,000 into ads supporting recall drives against eight Republican state senators who backed Gov. Scott Walker’s bill.”

Why because these people are doing legitimate jobs instead of prancing around the country on the taxpayers dime?

roper dope. Let the dems stuff the boxes in other precincts while not knowing the good guys had 7500 legitimate votes in the desk drawer. The dems cheated their way to a 250 vote win, errrrrrr 7500 vote loss. Brilliant!...red

A bit of "sanity" from the dump:

Those who Supported the Frankin Votes Agree with Repubs on This One

Come on guys, Nate Silver is showing that the new result looks correct. Same guy who said Frankin winning the Senate seat looked correct. We cannot change our principals based on whether or not it happens to go our way for a given issue. This looks legit. How can we have credibility going forward if we ignore legit voting issues purely because it happens to go against us?

Mac

OK, I have never owned a Mac but used them at work a few times. I prefer Linux to MS Windows, but have used all releases of MS products since the company was formed.

I actually was very slow to leave Lotus for Excel. Shows my age.

Now I am ambidextrous. I even like Gnumeric, that is the spreadsheet that can do RegEx find/replace in the spreadsheet and makes excellent HTML tables from the native spreadsheet.

If the 'rats and unions couldn't find a way to victory via their usual fraud, you have to know that the vote was a lot more against them than the final tally shows.

The union thugs little assholes are puckered up like a handball these days.

If Gov Walker would ask me for advice right now, I would advise him to pass a law tomorrow that prohibits any union "employee", contractor, or agent from making any more than $30,000 a year including benefits, bonuses, or any other form of payment.

....lets see just how dedicated these thugs are to helping the rank and file if they can't get rich in the process.
