"Just One Voter, Charlie"

How about a few thousand, Mayor Tom?

In what can only be called Serious Spadework--not to mention heroic and unsung--Washburn has methodically and meticulously chewed through the City of Milwaukee's election records from the 2004 debacle.

It ain't pretty--here is his PDF of the "most suspicious" wards and the table showing why.

You don't have to read the table, however, to appreciate some other little things.

The Election Commission has Lost 42 poll books --they simply disappeared. This would be like having your Bank "lose" the copies of your statements. It simply is NOT done, and is totally unacceptable.

There will be no final report explain the results of the continuing "investigation" promised in the preliminary findings published on May 10, 2005. Neither the Feds nor the Milwaukee DA will issue a final report on their "investigation."

...the November 2, 2004 election records were NOT confiscated by the Joint Task Force between the US Attorney of Eastern Wisconsin and the Milwaukee County District Attorney. Contrary to Wisconsin State Election law (WI Stats. 7.24)the records were transfered voluntarily by the City of Milwaukee Election Commission to the joint task force. --so the Election Commission was able to claim, FALSELY, that "the records are not available" for examination by other parties (think Washburn...) who are legally entitled to do so.

I do not propose that there be criminal prosecution of people who are grossly incompetent. But it seems that the City, the DA, and the Feds could at least admit that there was gross incompetence.

And, of course, if it was more than that, we have paid for an investigation--
