Skip to comments.Wisconsin (Supreme) court race won't be certified without vote probe
Posted on 04/08/2011 12:37:45 PM PDT by rface
The agency overseeing Wisconsin elections will not certify results of Tuesday's state Supreme Court race until it concludes a probe into how a county clerk misplaced and then found some 14,000 votes that upended the contest.

"It's not that we necessarily expect to find anything criminal. But we want to make sure the public has confidence in the results,"
Unofficial returns in the statewide race had given the challenger, JoAnne Kloppenburg, a narrow 204 vote statewide lead over David Prosser, a former Republican legislator.

Friday, Kloppenburg said her campaign had filed an open records requests "for all relevant documentation related to the reporting of election results in Waukesha County, as well as to the discovery and reporting of the errors announced by the County."

Apparently the liberals need time to come up with 8,000 “misplaced” ballots—all voting for Kloppenberg.
I think they’re worried about the liberals going nuts and burning buildings.
MSM still refusing to get the narrative right, I see...
that is not Gretchen Carlson?
While they are at it, they might want to check out the 10,000 undervotes in Dane County. Why is it that the inquisition only occurs when the libs lose?

Democrats NEVER lose an election.
It is either STOLEN (2000), the public is too STUPID to know better (2004) or the masses were BRAINWASHED by FoxNews/Talk Radio (2010).
This is a universal belief in La La Lefty land.
it looks like you are right.....but - why did this picture show on the photo gallery of Gretchen? .....hmmmmmm Maybe Gretchen put it there.....to throw me off ballance.
It’s OK to “find” votes in trunks of cars, closets, etc., as the dems do, but all of a sudden a computer error is now reason for concern?

And that will be the result that cannot be disputed, then they will have to shut up.
Even still, the SEIU is organizing “protests” as we speak, to “protest” (riot) that they lost their Union gravy regardless of how legitimate the election was.
I am glad Repubs have a learning curve.
Dems have held the last ballot box and then turned in the number of votes they needed. It worked for Johnson in the 1960’s and elsewhere since then (Washington state, Wisconsin, etc.).
Repubs finally figured it out and kept a big collection of ballots themselves.
Turnabout if fair play.
Are they also going to probe the county that was caught shredding ballots?
I think the votes were not, “misplaced and then found...”
They were just holding out in Indiana.
So did these arsewipes make this statement when the RAT “won” by 204 votes, or only when the Constitutionalist won by 7,000?
This is just one more of those times in America's history where the hand of God moves and redirects the course of same.
At that point in time, she did not need to be able to count....
I am old, but she was pleasant on the eyes.
There have to be better places to go...
LMAO......this is the way to stop the fraud. The dems won’t know how many votes they need to find in order for their stooge to go over the top. They thought their math was just right.
My wife’s hotter. And I can touch her.
Would they do this same probe of the counting process if the Dems had won?
accident or NOT - The voters had their say.....and the RATs have to cry.....or riot or whatever RATs do when they lose
They are freaking over at Kos with supposed experts saying that Access always saves, you don’t actually hit “save” so she’s lying. They miss that she was importing Excel spreadsheets into Access. It’s easy to screw that up and not have the data added to the database.
Of course the big question is why in this day and age is a manual process using Access and Excel being used to count votes?
Doug La Follette, Secretary of State of Wisconsin is a [DEMOCRAT]. This is the guy that will certify the results of the election. Any WI FReepers know anything about this guy?
I know that strategy.....show her your post....and see what happens next :)
Who cares what the loser has to say. Certify Justice Prosser now.
“misplaced and then found some 14,000 votes that upended the contest”
That is a lie, there weren’t any misplaced votes, there weren’t any found votes.
The votes weren’t reported, period.
That sounds like what the dimocRat are saying.
I tend to take this at face value. Ballots were originally not counted, the discrepancy was found, and the count was corrected.
Nope, not her.

... and the canvassing confirmed her vote total. End of story. Game, set, match!!!
I believe La Follette is of the old established family of famous Wisconsin progressives.
Bookmarked as more proof of left wing bias
I can save them the time and trouble then. Regardless of how it turns out, voters who supported the winning candidate will have confidence in the results and voters who supported the losing candidate will be convinced there was fraud.
“There have to be better places to go...”
Compared to Madison?
The thing that’s cracking me up is, when their side looked like they had won everyone here was freaking out and whining about a stolen election, bitching about ballot stuffing and trotting out the same retarded canards about dead folks voting- and as soon as it wen the other way posts worded almost exactly the same way appeared over on that other site as well as the predictable pissing and moaning about Diebold
Good grief, this country is a nation of piteous whiners; at least Nixon had some class when the Daley machine stole Illinois.
If you can’t steal as many votes, rig as many machines, bring as many dead back to life and ‘find’ as many ballot boxes as the other side, you’re as useless as a short NBA player or a 120LB defensive lineman in the NFL.
They were counted, just not in the numbers reported to the AP.
Good point. :)
There were two stories about the crook named Lyndon Johnson that the press never covered but I always found somewhat “curious”. First, just how did he become a multimillionaire on a maximum Senate yearly salary of $ 35,000? Second, historian Robert Caro related the news of Lyndon’s first stolen Senate election where he narrowly “defeated” Governor Coke Stevenson in the primary; Stevenson was up 74 votes or so and the county clerk “found” a ballot box with 83 paper ballots that had been uncounted and gee whiz, all 83 were marked for Lyndon Johnson. “Landslide Lyndon” the politicos called him after that; “Crooked as a Texas rattler” was my name for LBJ.
I see comments all over FR on this, but I’ve seen no other information. Please elaborate.
Maybe because she doesn’t trust the liberals not to screw around with a common database, so she feels more in control if she keeps it on an individual computer?
Having worked in state government before (not WI), it is easy to imagine some of the state workers having a bumper sticker which reads:
‘You can have my Access database when you can pry it out of my cold dead hands.’
I should have said that these votes were not included in the final count.
The point I was trying make was that saying the republican won by anything other than a straight up honest election plays into the dim’s hand. Implying they lost by other means just gives them ammunition to continue working to steal this and/or future elections.
I fully expect a liberal judge to declare that the votes don’t count because they weren’t reported in the initial count. There may not be a legal basis for the decision, but when has that ever stopped them?
