EXCLUSIVE: WI State Election Board Failed to Review Minutes from Waukesha County ‘Recount’ Before Certifying Supreme Court Election Results
Mountains of irregularities, more than 800 official exhibits, and objections by candidate’s attorneys never examined by top state election authority before razor-thin results for 10-year seat on state’s high court certified as ‘correct’…

Last Monday, May 23rd, Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.), the state’s top election agency, officially certified [PDF] the controversial results of the extraordinarily close April 5th statewide Supreme Court election and its subsequent “recount”.

However, as The BRAD BLOG has learned, the agency certified those results without reviewing hundreds of official exhibits documenting wholesale ballot irregularities, on-the-record objections from the attorneys of the candidate who filed for the “recount”, and thousands of pages of official transcripts and minutes documenting the entire “recount” process from the election’s most controversial county.

Even more alarming, the agency doesn’t even yet have a copy of the hundreds, if not thousands of pages which make up the official minutes documenting the nearly month-long “recount” from Waukesha County — the last of the state’s 72 counties to complete their count, and by far the most controversial county following the late discovery there of some 14,000 votes not included in the county’s original Election Night results.

  • Waah, waah, waah! Yeah, and only Waukesha had “irregularities”. LOL.

  • Well, you’re right (although “Waah, waah, waah!” is a bit obscure). There were irregularities statewide, which is why Prosser’s team insisted on restricting the recount only to Waukesha and a few other counties; and, as usual, the Democrats agreed to the GOP’s terms.
