Who is/are the GAB?
I went to the web site and found a Welcome to the NEW web site:
We hope you find our new site easy to use and navigate.
The G.A.B. and its staff are committed to ensuring that Wisconsin elections are administered through open, fair and impartial procedures that guarantee that the vote of each individual counts, and that the will of the electorate prevails. The Board uses information technology and the Internet to make information readily available to the public about the financing of political campaigns, elections, lobbying, and financial interests of public officials. The Board and its staff are dedicated to enforcing the election, ethics, lobbying and campaign finance laws vigorously to reduce the opportunity for corruption and maintain public confidence in representative government.
(I didn’t find photo of Kevin Kennedy on the “new” site no biograpgy, no history, so I provided a photo for you on the right)

I learned that:
The Government Accountability Board is comprised of six former judges who serve staggered, six-year terms.
Ok. That might have been fine and dandy information before I new that that Justice Prosser had served 12 years on the Supreme Court while failing to prosecute child abusers, and calling his court colleagues “bitch”. We need to know more about these six judges. Where are the biographies, ruling histories, and political affiliations?
So many questions remain unanswered. In fact, the recount of the Supreme Court election raised more questions then it answered for most of us. The face book group Election Integrity has raised a few questions, some old and some new.
So this is an introduction to each member of the GAB along with the “full documentation” provided by the “new” site as to their past history, rulings, and affiliations and some lingering, unanswered questions, questions, questions.
Question: From Barbara With – Election Integrity: What was the special software they put on Nickalous’ computer and why did she get it and no one else and what was it for?
Question: From Sheila Parks – Election Integrity – Since she had recused herself, why was Kathy Nickolaus sitting in her office the whole time during the Waukesha recount? Why did she have access to all the ballots, therefore, during the recount she had recused herself from?
Secretary – Judge Gordon Myse Appleton Wisconsin Court of Appeals, 1986-1999 Outagamie County Circuit Court, 1972-1983 – Term expires – May 1, 2011(Guess the site has not been updated?)
Question (regarding election information held on Kathy Nickolaus’ personal lap top computor)- Jacqueline Haessly: I am still curious about the status of the investigation into the computer: Was it taken and placed in a secure place? Is a computer forensics expert examining it? I can’t find any information on this. The topic seems to have disappeared in to the netherworld
Question – Sharon Swenson/Nelson – Elaection Integrity: Why are there no GAB people at the recounts? Why did Kathy Nicklaus have that job after being in an election scandal before? Why DID the GAB send a victory letter to Prosser 2 days BEFORE the voting Began??? Why is Kathy Nicklaus not following the rules set in place regarding her computer???
Member – Judge Thomas Cane Wausau – Wisconsin Court of Appeals, 1981-2007 – Outagamie County Circuit Court, 1972-1981 -Term expires May 1, 2013
Question – Barbara With – Election Integrity: Why was there a date stamp on the DRE from Pewaukee from march 30, 1:40 AM? If it was just a test, why did they do it at 1:40 AM? If it was a technology mistake, doesn’t think concern the GAB that there could be more flawed technology?
Question – Dennis Kern – Election Integrity – WHO is/are the GAB? I have tried to go to the web site only to find a l list of names with no bio or links to their prior professional history or affiliation. No pictures. No transparency. WHO are they?
