Right Thinking From The Left Coast
If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough. - Mario Andretti

The race in WI just got really interesting

Well Kloppenberg already declared victory yesterday as Hal’s post below shows, so revelations like this one are going to be problematic.

Madison - In a political bombshell, the clerk in a Republican stronghold is set to release new vote totals giving 7,500 votes in the state Supreme Court race back toward Justice David Prosser, swinging the race significantly in his favor. The Waukesha County clerk’s office has told state elections officials that they will be adjusting the vote totals to give incumbent David Prosser more than 7,000 new votes, said Mike Haas, staff attorney for the state Government Accountability Board. “Waukesha will be adjusting their vote totals by 14,000,” Haas said the Accountability Board was told. The numbers will add some 11,000 votes for Prosser and some 3,000 for Kloppenburg, he said.

It now seems clear to me that the despite their efforts and AP’s help to inform the demcorats what they needed to push for a win, they did not manufacturing enough new ballots to push the vote. Doesn’t mean they might no find a whole bunch that have not been counted yet under some stairs or in someone’s trunk, to push Kloppenberg over the line, but this new number putting Posner over 7500 votes ahead of Kloppenberg sure shifts the picture and makes the job real hard for the donkey machine. Even more problematic are revelations like this one, which immediately should raise massive suspicion with anyone that understand how unlikely this particular set of circumstances are.

On an estimated more than 10,000 ballots in Dane County, Wisconsin, where the state capital Madison is, voters selected only a pick in the Supreme Court race, while leaving even the hotly contested mayoral and county executive choices blank. That raises red flags for election experts like Scott St. Clair of the Freedom Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Really, 10K votes, all for Kloppenberg, and all only checking that vote, while ignoring the many other hotly contested races? Sounds like the new box of uncounted votes in the car trunk/under the stairs scenario didn’t include enough made up votes. Yet? Who knows, we are talking about demcorats here.

Actually, Nate Silver—who is liberal but honest—noted that the found ballots in Waukesha are exactly consistent with vote patterns.  The county was way under-reporting before then.

What’s fun is watching the Left go non-linear again about the election.  It’s Florida 2000 all over again!  Never mind the Minnesota or Washington elections that too place in the interim.  Only Republicans steal elections, right?

As i understand it, Wisconsin, has same day registration/voting with little or no prof of residency or identification required.

Seriously, look at that woman’s face (Kloppenberg)and into her eyes and tell me she hasn’t got a titanium skeleton and an internal hard drive. Bet she has an input port too!

Anyone else think the republican clerk deliberately held these back specifically for this?  To let the dems try their game coming up with votes, then doing this exact, “oops, here’s a buch we forgot to report,” to block their game?
