Hurricane Kathy Rips Wisconsin

Kathy Leaves Path of Destruction Across State

A “KAT 4” Hurricane made landfall in the City of Brookfield in Waukesha County in April, 2011 leaving 14,000 residents stripped of their votes.
The massive storm caught the residents of Wisconsin completely unaware. Few warnings were posted by the Government Accountability Bureau regarding the severity of the storm that left thousands of Wisconsin Residents stripped of their freedoms and at the mercy of the devastating power of special interest groups such as Americans for Prosperity and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) – the shadowy Koch Brothers, big tobacco, insurance companies, and a drug industry consortium.

Governor Walker responded by suppressing the vote saying that in the future there won’t be so many votes flying about. (see side bar right)

Governor Issues Suppression Order

In an unprecedented move Governor Walker signed a vote suppression order, requiring photo ID’s, and residency requirements to discourage voter turn out, thus preventing thousands of their basic rights to vote.


Justice Prosser Left Unscathed


Judge Prosser was fleeing the path of destruction that scattered thousands of loose ballots in his direction. His car was struck by a massive Sequoia Edge voting machine. He miraculously escaped without injury, and in an ironic twist, found himself the beneficiary of the thousands of loose ballots unleashed by the storm. Governor Walker, a staunch supporter of Prosser, is quoted as saying “The votes just came out of the blue”. Read “Ballots Out of the Blue”

Why Weren’t People Warned?

Kevin Kennedy, Director of the Government Accountability Board (GAB) was severely criticized for the lack of warning offered to the people of Wisconsin in the days before the, what has been called, “The Ballot Blowout”. Speaking from under a tarp, covering himself and his board members, he stated that it wasn’t the Board’s responsibility to warn people of flying ballots, or loose vote machines. The role of the GAB was only to document the destruction after it happened and that the Board was more of mediator than a watch dog.


The warning system to alert the people of Wisconsin to the dangers of such destruction completely failed, needlessly threatening the most basic freedoms that were entrusted to the GAB and Keven Kennedy.

In the aftermath it is all to clear that a big change is needed.
