    Wink Premature Declaration of Victory

    Lead shifts, battle continues in Wisconsin Supreme Court race Posted on April 8, 2011


    By Kirsten Adshead Wisconsin Reporter
    Incumbent Supreme Court Justice David Prosser now leads in the race against Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg after “human error” kept all votes from Brookfield from being counted in the initial tally.
    The inclusion of Brookfield gave Prosser a net gain of 7,582 votes in Waukesha County.
    “We discovered the data sent to me from the city of Brookfield was not transferred to the final report given to the media Tuesday night. … It was human error, which I apologize for,” Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said Thursday during a news conference in Waukesha.
    Kloppenburg held a 204 lead over Prosser Thursday, leaving her ahead by less than one-one-hundredth of a percentage point after nearly 1.5 million votes, based on unofficial results reported by the Associated Press.
    Kloppenburg declared victory Wednesday.
    Melissa Mulliken, Kloppenburg’s campaign manager, said the campaign would be filing open records request for all documentation related to the Waukesha County vote.
    “Just as Assistant Attorney General Kloppenburg has run to restore confidence in the court, Wisconsin residents also deserve to have full confidence in election results,” Mulliken said in a statement.
    The numbers quickly began to change Thursday as county canvassing boards met to certify the election results.
    Prosser’s campaign team announced earlier Thursday that it was assembling a “recount team” to address the expected legal efforts.
    Prosser’s campaign director Brian Nemoir, said Thursday night that he was encouraged by reports from county canvases.

    Wouldn't it be ironic if this Republican bureaucrat had held these back intentionally? Knowing she was in a Republican stronghold, and having knowledge of how that group of voters reliably vote, she waited until the Democrats started celebrating...and the unionistas were dancing in the streets...she then sprung this huge amount of votes on them with an "oh, by the way" display?

    Or would that be too conspiritorial? If it was the way it happened......as Jackie Gleason used to say: "HOW SWEET IT IS"!

    It was actually closer to 11,000 votes. It was just a net gain for Prosser of 7500. Kloppenburg gained 3500 or so from the city. Either way very interesting.

    What do you guys think happened?

    You think the city of Brookfiled had 0 voters turn out?

    You think this lady made an error.
    Or is it some kind of evil conspiracy??

    And if so, what is the end game?

    Real simple, the votes would have counted one way or the other. If they had been reported earlier the results would have been the same.

    Madison — The state's top elections official said Friday he is sending state staff to examine results in Waukesha County, where thousands of previously uncounted votes were revealed Thursday in a bombshell that upended the tight Supreme Court race.
    "Because of the attention on vote totals from Brookfield, I am dispatching staff to Waukesha County today to review the business processes and verify the reported results in the election for Supreme Court justice," Kevin Kennedy, director of the state Government Accountability Board, said in a statement.
