JoAnne Kloppenburg Correct To Seek Statewide Recount In Supreme Court Race

April 20, 2011

As it should be.

How dare the David Prosser forces try to force earlier this week Kloppenburg to not seek a recount in the Supreme Court race.  Democracy in Wisconsin needs a fair recount in every corner of this state following the stain placed on the electoral system by Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus.  For anyone to snicker and state that there is no need for such a recount denigrates the process that rightly allows for a recount.  In addition, anyone who smirks at the recount also takes a slap at the voters who cast a ballot and deserve a fair tally be made of their intentions.

This all should make Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus look bad as she is the reason in large part a recount needs to be made.  Anyone who dare talk about the cost of a recount might suggest that Nickolaus chip in with some wads of Republican cash to help pay for it.

Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus is, after all, why people are having problems with faith in the system today.

Refusing to concede defeat, state Supreme Court challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg asked election officials Wednesday for a statewide recount in her flagging upset bid against Justice David Prosser.

The Government Accountability Board confirmed in a statement Wednesday that it is moving forward with a statewide recount at Kloppenburg’s request.

Prosser’s campaign pressured her not to seek a recount, saying there was no way she would find 7,000 votes and a recount would be costly for taxpayers.
