    The were not "magically" found, they were found during canvassing as many votes and errors are. 24 were found here. Nothing fishy going on.
    Now if the 14000 votes hadn't turned up, an investigation by Prosser should have been in order because of such a low turn out.

    Kloppenburg adds 24 votes in Vernon County canvassing

    VIROQUA -- JoAnne Kloppenburg's vote total increased by 24 after completion of Vernon County's official canvass of votes from the spring general election, Thursday.
    Vernon County Clerk Ron Hoff said that a number was been written down incorrectly on a tally sheet on election night, Tuesday, April 5. The canvass showed Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice candidate Kloppenburg picked up 24 votes in Vernon County. Of those, 23 came from an incorrect tally mark and one came from an absentee ballot from overseas.
    Kloppenburg defeated incumbent Justice David Prosser Jr., 4,331-3,578 in Vernon County.
    Statewide, out of about 1.5 million votes cast, Kloppenburg held a margin of 204 votes before canvassing began, Thursday.
    Hoff is a Republican from Coon Valley.

    I have a feeling if we loked at the history of all county clerks (rep and dem) we'd find many similar histories. As we learned from Hilary and Obama, such mistakes are not at all uncommon.

    That's what I'm saying.

    I hate all the unanswered questions that surround so many of the coincidences that always seem to be pivotal to the course of recent history.

    Too many turning points in recent history revolve around some suspiciously convenient coincidence. And far too often my suspicions are never even addressed, much less put to rest. And I'm way more reasonable in this regard, than most.

    Because I assume that if there is anything that might be gained by lying about an issue, then someone might be lying about it. ALL situations, all the time.

    But that's just me.

    An analogy of comparing apples to cinderblocks is a ridiculous one. That is what you did.

    Mertex is spot on with her reasoning on this. Given the history of the clerk involved, (thank to Whatif for the Maddow info) she should have been nowhere near any position of trust or authority. But because she was, this result will be tainted forever and under a dark cloud of suspicion from this point forward.

    Its not uncommon however this clerk has been given immunity to election fraud before this fresco but it not that uncommon for mistakes to happen. However, most of those I would chalk up to election official errors unless she had not been a former employ of Posser who had also a somewhat negative record ie was given immunity apparently from another election fraud case were she also found votes that favored the Republicans in most of the cases apparently. So, yeah I can't blame the WI Democrats for crying foul.

    Re: Prosser gains 7,500 votes in Waukesha County

    I am squashing the conspiracy theorists now.

    Here is the document that Brookfield posted election night. As can be seen, it contains the numbers that were found by Waukesha County. It is CLEARLY a clerical error. Think about it, if the ~14000 votes found are taken away, that leaves Brookfield with ZERO votes. Is that really a possibility? Does anyone really believe no one voted in Brookfield?

    “We went over everything and made sure all the numbers jived up and they did…everything we went over yesterday afternoon and today, all those numbers jived up and we’re satisfied that it’s correct. And I’m with the Democratic Party, Vice Chair of Waukesha County, so I’m not going to stand here and tell you something that’s not true.”

    The Democrat Party of Waukesha verified the results and the Kloppenburg campaign is currently in Waukesha to do the same.

    There is no conspiracy here.

    I am glad the election turned out the way it did. When the votes are certified, this needs to be over. Recounts will only politicize the Court even more, and stopping that is more important than anything else now. The Court has been politicized too far already, I only hope we can repair that damage. Shame on everyone who turned our courts into politics. Prosser is the new SC Justice of Wisconsin. Finalize it.

    Of course she found republican votes. She's in Waukesha, a republican stronghold in WI. In Dane county the canvas uncovered additional votes for Kloppenburg. In Dane county the canvas probably always uncovers additional net votes for dems. So, since the clerk in Dane county is a democrat, is he committing fraud? Of course not.

    The rest of the world is aware of bing.com/yahoo.com, and other search engines. Some fools even still prefer the politicized and manipulated google.com.

    Since the fact of Franken's magical voting growing apparatus are part of the recent public record, it's certain you won't have that much difficulty finding it.

    Funny Business in Minnesota Under Minnesota law, election officials are required to make a duplicate ballot if the original is damaged during Election Night counting. Officials are supposed to mark these as "duplicate" and segregate the original ballots. But it appears some officials may have failed to mark ballots as duplicates, which are now being counted in addition to the originals. This helps explain why more than 25 precincts now have more ballots than voters who signed in to vote. By some estimates this double counting has yielded Mr. Franken an additional 80 to 100 votes.
    Yawn.

    Okay, Mayor Snorkum (yawns) again to make letters.
