    WAUKESHA (AP) - The chairman of Waukesha County's Democratic Party is calling for the resignation of the county clerk who botched her count of last week's state Supreme Court race.
    Party chairman Victor Weer said in a news release Tuesday that vote counting and reporting by Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus has not only produced problems, she has ignored pleas to make the process more open and technologically reliable.

    If the woman can't perform her job as a public employee getting paid by taxpayer money in a competent manner she should either resign or be fired.

    in a union house seniority trumps all. I work in a union hotel,the number of incompetent lazy workers is rampant,but unless they are caught red handed in the act of a terminable offense, they are darn near impossible to terminate, schedules, shifts and positions are all based on seniority not on merit

    You don't know unions very well especially when it comes to public employees.

    If you are so enamored by the going ons in Wisconsin, why don't you move there?

    This statement PROVES you do not know what you are talking about.

    She holds an elected position, she was voted in.
    She is not a "public employee."

    If she was elected and gets her paycheck from the city/county/state why is she not a public employee?

    RK she may not be a bureaucrat but I can't buy that she isn't a public employee.

    OMG! It's even tougher to fire an elected employee! Look at Congress!
