    V-K Day – Kloppenburg Surrenders In Wisconsin

    V-K Day – Kloppenburg Surrenders In Wisconsin

    There will be no Battle of the Bulging Ballot Bags.

    JoAnne Kloppenburg just announced that she will not file a lawsuit challenging the recount which found her losing to David Prosser by 7004 votes.

    As discussed here previously, Kloppenburg had alleged that there were “anomalies” in the election, including torn or open ballot bags.

    The “ballot bag security” issue was phony not because there were no tears or openings, but because there was no evidence that this was deliberate or affected the vote at all.  The Wisconsin Goverment Accountability Board rejected any suggestion that the election has other than routine, non-material adjustments, and specifically rejected the “ballot bag security” allegations.

    There was a lack of reality to Kloppenburg’s position since the vote did not change much from election night to the canvass to the recount.

    The supposedly “found” votes in Waukesha were not “found.”  The votes were reported by the city of Brookfield on election night, but the Waukesha clerk initially failed to report those votes to the press on election night.  The meme that Republicans stole the election was pure fantasy.

    Updates:  I’ll post the video when available.  The short version is that Kloppenburg insists that there were serious anomalies and problems, but that she cannot meet the threshold for a legal challenge.  Kloppenburg wants an independent investigation of Waukesha county.

    In response to question of whether cost was worth it, Kloppenburg responded:  “Of course it was worth it….”

    Kloppenburg spent most of the press conference doing what I predicted she would do, delegitimizing Prosser’s victory without actually challenging it.

    @Tlaloc, you are full full of you-know-what that your eyes are brown. You must have a problem with the "meaning of is", eh. And no, the reporting process was not "skipped". There is no requirement to report the votes to the press. It is a courtesy. Nothing is official until the canvass is complete.

    Now that I'm done slapping T's hand, I have to admit I was incorrect about how this would pan out. That said, I'm sure Kloppenburg waited for her Union masters to give permission to concede.

    "You keep saying this but it continues to be completely false."

    You keep saying *THAT* despite it being the desperate lies of a loser.

    Which word in "Secretary of State website" is too long for you to understand? I'll help you get this if I can but you have to let me know which part of the facts you can't wrap your head around. The votes weren't reported to the SoS that's, as i said, not reporting the votes. Not just not reporting them to the press but not reporting them to the actual people who run the election.

    You can pretend all you like but that's a gross dereliction.
