Many Problems Observed in Milwaukee ‘Recount’ of WI Supreme Court Election – But No Media Reports!

[Ed Note: The following account from an observer at Milwaukee County’s machine “recount” of ballots from Wisconsin’s April 5th Supreme Court election between incumbent Republican David Prosser and independent Asst. Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg, comes on the heels of recently documented reports of complete chain of custody violations such as “wide open” ballots bags in Waukesha County — where the stunning announcement of the addition of some 14,000 votes two days after the election reversed the originally reported results to give Prosser the unofficial leadover Kloppenburg for the 10-year seat on the state’s highest court — as well asearlier reports of ballots discovered unsecured for weeks in Dane County’s city of Verona and unexplained variances in “recount” results as reported during the “recount” by the WI Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.), the state’s chief election agency. Thousands of ballots have so far been discovered to have beenoriginally miscounted to date, even with just a minority of counties actually bothering to count ballots by hand during the “recount”. – BF]
I worked on the recount in Milwaukee County last Thursday, and it was quite a disturbing and stifling experience. I left there puzzled and frustrated, and have been searching for news on ‘anomalies’ there, but find next to nothing. News reports have only stated there have been “no major problems”, and things are “going smoothly”…
