    Wisconsin State Election Officials Verify Accuracy Of Waukesha Numbers

    Wisconsin State Election Officials Verify Accuracy Of Waukesha Numbers

    The Government Accountability Board (GAB) in Wisconsin is the governmental entity which is responsible for elections.

    Ever since Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickaulous discovered during the county’s election canvass that the city of Brookfield was not included in numbers initially reported to the press, Democrats have been crying foul and claiming there was fraud.

    But as reported by Wisconsin Politics Election Blog, the GAB has confirmed that the canvass numbers reported by Nickolaus match election day results reported by Brookfield:

    GAB Director Kevin Kennedy says the agency’s investigation of spring election procedures in Waukesha County remains ongoing, but that the final canvass numbers in the city of Brookfield match the initial tallies from poll workers on Election Night.

    “We don’t see, at this point, any criminal activity, but we certainly see practices that need to be changed to bolster public confidence,” Kennedy said.

    This is consistent with previous information, readily available to the public, reflecting that the canvass numbers reported by Nickolaus matched earlier reports by Brookfield itself.

    In a statement to TPM, the GAB explained that the problem might have been discovered earlier if Waukesha has followed the practice of posting results by precinct rather than one number for the county.  That way, everyone would have seen that there were no votes in Brookfield included in the count.  But that practice is not mandatory.

    The verification by the GAB makes the statement by Waukesha County Democratic Vice Chair Ramona Kitzinger, in which she recanted her prior videotaped statement that she agreed with Nickolaus and that the canvass was accurate — all the more absurd.

    One can only imagine the pressure Kitzinger was under. But the numbers are the numbers, and it is becoming crystal clear that the canvass numbers, not the initial report to the press, was accurate.

    Barring a surprise when Milwaukee County finishes it’s canvass (it’s only one of three counties not completed), David Prosser will serve for another 10 years.

    Tonight, the Tea Party Express sent out an action alert for volunteers on the "imminent" WI Supreme Court election recount. http://bit.ly/fJZrwd

    From their e-mail: "Wisconsin is in urgent need of both attorneys and non-attorneys to come to the state and help oversee the imminent recount and provide needed ballot security. Wisconsin has 72 counties plus the City of Milwaukee, so the task is large, and the stakes couldn’t be higher."
