    Until you mentioned this, I was giving her the benefit of the doubt. However, I will admit that this new piece of info certainly makes her claim seem suspect, which calls into question whether or not she tampered with the vote.

    From reading the article further I really suggest that a recount is in order because from looking at this a little bit further it seem just a little bit fishy that the same person is the sole person in charge of the counting. I worked as a election official myself in Houston, Texas for a time and lets just say it impossible to miss thousands of counts for something like this. When everything is done on a computerized machine which gives it out on paper results. Her story also seem a little bit off as someone who has worked with Excel it forces you to save and I mean it doesn't close unless you tell it too save. Also, losing data is hard do on a computer because the program records all things you type and saves all records in data base. So losing something like data is imposable to say the least. I'd chalk this up too a person not knowing how Excel or computers works in general, but I a bit naive as it looks like she is a programer so I would suggest a recount as this just seems a lot of Bs coming from Mrs. Nicolas.

    Are you sure she used Access to enter the data or did she use some other application to enter it and only used Access as the storage medium? If she used a custom application to enter the data, it would depend on that application as to how and when the data is persisted.

    So a clerk in a Republican stronghold just happens to find 7000 or so votes on a PC only she has access too, and those 7000 votes happen to flip the election in the Republicans favour after a day or so of news of him loosing.......I smell a rat...

    Next we are going to learn there are only 6000 people in the county...

    This sounds more like an election in a 3rd world dictatorship than in a democratic country. For one.. no single person should EVER have sole control over votes in an election. Whoever allowed this should be fired and barred from participating in an election with the exception of voting. How on earth can anyone say that the election in this area is at all legit when the only one who had access to the votes after the voting ended suddenly finds extra votes? Checks and balances for god sake!

    And for the record, I could care less if the wacko right winger or wacko left winger wins.

    If this discovery was made in favor of the Democrat, we would already have fifty pages written by the usual suspects filled with right wing outrage screaming about the fraud involved.

    Isn't it also interesting how this 'discovery' not only put the right winger in the lead, but conveniently was large enough to take it beyond the level for a free recount making it far more expensive for the Dem to now do so?

    Now watch for the right wingers to march before microphones and write rants saying that this is 'over' and we must put this behind us and forget about any 'divisive and expensive' recount.

    Did that town exist on the map before this morning?

    Questions of Greater Importance:

    Were there extra ballots?

    Were those extra ballots in Al Franken's trunk?

    Were the ballots discovered in excess of the number of voters in the precinct/district/town?

    Where were the Democrats when the above issues were being discussed in November 2008?

    Hiding.

    Any indication that this current vote adjustment is anything but the correction of an addition omission? Is any valid source claiming the votes were not legitimate votes?

    Do you people always resort to character assassination immediately?

    What it means is the union machine was incapable of changing the expressed will of the people, since the union machine turned a judicial election into a political contest over current events.

    What in heavens name does your rantings about Al Franken have to do with this incident other than your own ideological extremist venting?

    You attack Dems for character assassination and then do the same thing in the same post. Amazing if this were not so predictable.

    Duh. This was a POLITICAL CONTEST made so by the laws of the State of Wisconsin. Every election is. Unions did not do that... state law did.
