Exclusive: My Live KPFK Interview with now-former WI Supreme Court Candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg
By Brad Friedman on 6/1/2011 6:31pm
On my KPFK/Pacifica Radio show today (heard on Wednesdays at 3:30pm PT in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Diego & around the world on KPFK.org) I spoke live with WI Asst. Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg. It was her first interview since concedingthe highly-contentious and incredibly close WI Supreme Court election and “recount” yesterday to incumbent Justice David Prosser.
Given the state media’s shamefully bad coverage of the disastrous “recount”, the interview may well be the only one, as short as it was, in which she was able to address accountability for the “cascade of widespread irregularities”, as she described them during her concession speech, which plagued the state’s certified results.
“How do you know,” I asked her at one point during our conversation, “that, given the wild, widespread irregularities — these wide open ballot bags, tamper-evident seals that were broken, serial numbers that were missing, scratched out, changed — how do you knowthat those ballots that were counted during the recount process were actually the ballots that were cast by the voters on Election Day?”
