Woopsie! Prosser Wins!!

Holy smoking ballotbox, Batman!

After Tuesday night’s Wisconsin Supreme Court election, a computer error in heavily Republican Waukesha County failed to send election results for the entire City of Brookfield to the Associated Press. The error, revealed today, would give incumbent Supreme Court Justice David Prosser a net 7,381 votes against his challenger, attorney Joanne Kloppenburg. On Wednesday, Kloppenburg declared victory after the AP reported she finished the election with a 204-vote lead, out of nearly 1.5 million votes cast.

Waukesha County Clerk to explain her decision to retain a MS Basic-driven computer system at 5:30 Central.

Do you think Madison will now find an extra 30 boxes of new ballots?

Wow, what breaking news if true.

How do you miss the second largest city in the county on election day?
Very strange.
But if it was an honest mistake, so be it.
Wonder how many other times this has happened?

Disgruntled--I thought your priest preached humility. You must have been sleeping in the pews.

Paul--Thanks for the partisan shot. It shows your true character.

When a Democrat wins a close election, it was "stolen". When a Republican wins a close election, it was on the "up and up".

There will those on the left who will claim voter fraud, but it was indeed a computer glitch and human error. The question is will the person in charge be held accountable, and what will be the consequence.

Now, if this situation happened under the watchful eye of a liberal and enabled Kloppenberg to win, dollars to donuts those goofs on the right would be frothing on the mouth and calling for heads to roll.

Only children cling on to that myth of widespread voter fraud.

Indeed, but how many on the right would be so understanding if Kloppenberg won in a similar circumstance?

Those on the left who make any claims of purposeful intent to deceit, that there was chicanery, without direct proof, is just as guilty as those on the right with their insistence that voter fraud occurs on a perpetual basis.

Well done voter fraud conspiracy theorists! Your guy won because they forgt to count the City of Brookfield. You can go back under your rock now. See you in a year and a half. Hilarious.

Hey anony, don't worry about my morals, you twerp.

And are you to tell me that your liberal heads aren't exploding right now?

I assure you that there was no voter fraud. It's not Dane or Milwaukee counties.

Nor is it Philadelphia.

It's WAUKESHA county. Nice try though. The chair of the Waukesha County Democratic party was at the news conference and confirmed that it was a mistake and that everything was on the up and up.

Curious though, you whiney little hypocrites, how does it feel?

DCS, no one cares. There wasn't any widespread voter fraud. They forgot to count the City of Brookfield. We all agree. I voted for Prosser. Get bent.

I certainly expect the LeftOWackies to screech and ululate for weeks over this.


The City of Brookfield did not have more votes cast than it has eligible voters--unlike a precinct in the City of Milwaukee.

The ballots did not emerge from a car-trunk, unlike in Chicago.

The ballots were not Xeroxed.

There IS an audit trail.

Disgruntled Car Salesman said...

Hey Strupp, no one gives a rip that you voted for Prosser. What do you want, a friggin' medal for picking the winner? For picking the candidate with judicial experience?

Sit and spin.

How Christian of you!

DCS--"And are you to tell me that your liberal heads aren't exploding right now?"

Why? Everything is on the up and up, right? The election was one of the closest in history. Both sides thought their candidate could win. One person did. It's YOU who is acting like a child. Again, I thought Jesus taught his followers to be humble. Looks like you forgot the message.

Thanks for finally making your vote count Dad.
