    Seriously, I doubt there was any fraud here, this is explained easier with incompetence, but this is almost asking for trouble. It has all the appearances of fraud.
    that it certainly does, and raises more than a few questions.

    I'm sorry but this seem fishy to me and it raise more questions than answers. Just because a democrat says no funny business happened doesn't mean she not incompetent for what she did. I'd also say we need to do a investigation in too this and I would say the same thing if this were the democrat in this particular race that had magical found 14,000 more unreported votes.

    Based on the numbers i've seen, as of today and with the canvassing currently taking place in WI, Prosser picked up enough votes to take the lead from Kloppenburg even without this extra 7500 votes being placed in his column.

    A bunch of the counties made errors in their vote totals (as always happens) they provided to the AP. Obviously none as big as forgetting a city, but still. It is very common. I think the real problem is Klopenburg declaring victory just 200 unofficial votes up. What a maroon.

    Game, set and match.
    As been pointed out previously, Prosser's term isn't up until July so even if he doesn't win, he would still get to rule on the on the law either way. The sticking point I see, is that the law is being held not on it's merits, but the way it was passed. A violation of the open meetings law in Wisconsin. It seems to me any fair minded judge would need to rule the votes in the legislature must be done over in order to meet the open meetings requirement. At that point, the required votes may no longer be there.

    I totally disagree. I don't understand what authority any lower court has to rule on this issue. According to the bipartisan Senate Rules Committee Chairman (not a Senator) the rules were followed. What right does any court have to over-rule the Senate Rules Committee? If any court would, it ought to only be the Supreme Court. We have separation of powers for a very good reason.

    I don't think it's nearly as cut and dry as you make it out to be.

    The only mis-step here was that the vote count wasn't reported to the Associated Press. Last time I looked, they weren't the Board of Elections.

    You don't think that a local politico creating her own sequestered system in violation of standard safety practices is a mis-step?
    I may be wrong.

    Last time I looked, this is America and it is up to the electorate to decide what issues are important in an election. Not you.
    Looks like the electorate did decide that the goonion whingings weren't important.

    So, your point was...?

    Oh! You should clean up that spilled milk, shouldn't you?

    Franken has not a damn thing to do with this
    The word you didn't learn in high school English is "analogy".

    Look it up.

    and your 'context' is a cheap excuse to dredge up an old right wing cause celebre that you just cannot let go of.
    The Mayor appreciates your personal admission on the painfulness of the truth.

    What's most funny about that is the frantic posturings of the left, some of which persist to this day, over their delusion that Bush somehow "stole" the election from Gore, yet the Mayor has brought to the table nothing but documented incidents in the election fraud committed by supporters of one particular US Senator.

The vote information should have been under lock and key and guarded until the result was sent in and verified. Now we have a woman who locks the information in her office on her own PC, with only her having access.. if it had been a murder then she would be going to the chair on that evidence.
    Not one of votes was "tainted". The error was clerical in nature, and there's no indication that any ballot was defaced in any way.

    That her performance in that position should be reviewed goes without saying. To blindly assume she should be sacked after catching the error is unwarranted.
