    Re: Prosser gains 7,500 votes in Waukesha County

    Understanding that the source will be immediately dismissed, Maddow reported that this is far from the first time Nicklaus has been involved in election "irregularities".

    She's received immunity in one case, worked for Prosser personally, and was responsible for TWO prior cases in which a Republican had apparently lost.

    Until she caught her mistake. Acknowledged her "human error".

    And discovered unreported votes that delivered victory from the jaws of defeat.

    I know, I know, Maddow.

    But crap, six or seven PRIOR cases of election irregularities and queer errors?

    I'd be sounding the BS alarm if it was a Democrat.

    Its just too much to let lie.

    If the parties had been reversed in this people would already be on Koch sponsored busses, and every conservative memeherd would be posting nonstop.

    I'm not even making any claims as to the validity of the outcome.

    But if I caught someone in the vicinity of a bunch of burglarized cars a THIRD time, with a crowbar and a slim jim, I'd expect them to be investigated regardless of whether they had stereos or cds in their possession, ya know?

    Even Blumenthal of HuffPo says everything seems kosher and these types of errros are common in the unofficial results provided to the media.

    So just how common is this the sort of error that Nickolaus claims she made on election night? Michael McDonald, a George Mason University professor who studies voter turnout and closely monitors election results, said they are "not uncommon ... we see these sorts of errors happen all the time."

    Will she be investigated, or will this be another Bush-type victory?

    More from that link:

    Recent history bears him out:

    •In the 1988 Democratic primary in Delaware, a keypunch error gave Samuel Beard 2,800 votes more than he received in a race against incumbent Lt. Gov. S.B. Woo. Although Beard had claimed victory, the error was not discovered until two days after the primary and reversed its result, putting Woo ahead by just 71 votes.
    •The initial count in New York's 2001 Democratic mayoral primary gave Mark Green a roughly 30,000-vote lead over Fernando Ferrar, but an "official machine count" conducted a week later reduced that margin by 18,029 votes after election officials discovered 42,000 votes that had been counted twice. The final official count narrowed Green's margin to just 15,981 votes.
    •Unofficial returns in the 2002 Alabama governor's race showed incumbent Democrat Don Siegelman narrowly defeating Republican challenger Bob Riley. But a late-night recount conducted by Republican officials in Baldwin County revealed what they described as a "computer glitch" that gave Riley a statewide lead of 3,195 votes. Although Democrats suspected foul play -- the recount had occurred after Democratic party observers had gone home for the night -- Siegelman ultimately dropped efforts to obtain a statewide recount.
    •Folllowing New York's 2008 presidential primary, a New York Times review found "about 80 election districts among the city's 6,106 where Mr. Obama supposedly did not receive even one vote, including cases where he ran a respectable race in a nearby district." A formal review later found hundreds of small anomalies in vote reporting in individual districts. The Times reported election lawyers representing both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton agreeing that it is "not uncommon" to see such mistakes "made by weary inspectors rushing on election night to transcribe columns of numbers."

    You see, THAT's the problem. When Dino Rossi lost in Washington, Republicans screamed foul over the votes that suddenly showed up at the last minute. But when the shoe is on the other foot in Wisconsin, it's all good. Same with Democrats who defended the vote in Washington, but attack Prosser now.

    That's kind of the whole point of the canvas - to ensure all the numbers match up and all votes have been included in the tabulations. Many counties had to adjust their inital vote totals provided to the media. Klopp gained in some counties, Prosser in others. Of course, none of the adjustments were as big as 14000 votes, but still...
