Bush v. Gore II, Wisconsin Style
April 7, 2011

How convenient! That super-close election for Wisconsin Supreme Court has suddenly turned into a landslide win for the Republican incumbent, Justice David Prosser. Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus says she somehow failed to report over 7,000 votes for Mr. Prosser on election night. Just an unfortunate human error, says Ms. Nickolaus, who used to work for Mr. Prosser when he was the speaker of the state Assembly. Ms. Nickolaus was also given immunity from prosecution in a 2002 criminal investigation into illegal activity by members of the assembly Republican Caucus.
None of the states other 71 counties reported any ballot counting/reporting errors.
