Ironically this post was being composed as the news of the GAB that NO criminal action was found against Kathy Nickolaus …REALLY?
Suspicious events of April 6 – 7
On the Wednesday April 6, the morning after the April 5 Supreme Court Election, Kloppenburg was ahead of Prosser by some 200 votes. The press was calling her the winner, and she even made her victory speech. The people of Wisconsin who went to bed that early morning with the belief that JoAnne Kloppenburg had won the election, would find out on the following Thursday April 7 that Kathy Nickolaus, County Clerk of Waukesha had found 14.000 votes in the city of Brookfield that would put Prosser comfortably in the lead.
Some very suspicious meetings, and announcements were afoot on the day after the election.
Prosser retreated to Delafield (Waukesha County) as the election returns were coming in,
“…to find out what the hell was going on”.
We can only speculate who he met with or what possibilities were discussed. We only know that he returned to Madison and met with Walker.
The allegation that Prosser met with Walker in his office on June 6 was included in the Kloppenburg complaint which triggered the recount. When questioned about this meeting on three different occasions, Prosser responded with three different recollections:
1) There was never such a meeting
2) I might have met him outside his office
3) I don’t think I was at the Capitol that day.
The press conference called by Walker would have been after the alleged meeting with Prosser but before Kathy Nickolaus would “discover ballots out of the blue” in the City of Brookfield in Waukesha County.
We can safely assume that Walker knew of the “found vote” at the time he made his “votes out of the blue statement” from the Item A report below.
A Report submitted to on-going investigation of a recount operative for Kloppenburg
In a private conversation, a poll worker shared with recount workers that Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus discovered that she had forgotten to include Brookfield’s votes much earlier than publicly reported, and did tell county officials immediately.
In failing to tell the G.A.B. of such a significant error, one that clearly changed the outcome of the election, the worker said, “It’s just like when she was in the Senate…. She was just doing what she was told to do.”
Why would Kathy Nickolaus be instructed to delay the “found vote” to the public?
The instructions to Kathy Nickolaus to delay releasing the “found vote” information, came at the time Prosser (her former boss) was in Delafield “to find out what the hell was going on”. This was the same time window when the Waukesha Patch and other right wing blogs got wind of the “found vote”. The press and public would not be informed until the following day.
Since delaying the announcement would only serve to draw suspicion from the public and press, it suggests even though the window of time of the delay would be suspect, that this consideration of heightened suspicion was out weighed by another more pressing need…What?
This is What Election Fraud Looks Like
Why was the Wednesday April 6 through Thursday April 7 window of time necessary? Because the 14,000 votes had been flipped electronically, but there was the other problem of the paper trail. It took time to make the actual physical ballots correspond to the flipped vote. Vote bags had to be stuffed with Prosser votes and unloaded with Kloppenburg votes for the ballot total to match the machine poll tape counts.
Is it even possible to flip votes or hack the electronic voting machines in current use in Wisconsin elections? Don’t take may word for it. The short video below features the public testimony of Curtis before a Congressional Committee in 2004 and Republican Representative Pridemore’s recent statement in the Assembly Committee for Campaign and Election Reform this past Summer.
Waukesha County SC Recount: Anomalies in Town of Delafield
Town of Delafield Wards 1, 2, 5 & 6
Shortly after sharing our concerns with Susan Crawford Thursday morning, 4/28, relative to what we should do when/if presented with another ballot bag that appeared to be improperly bagged, sealed, witnessed, or recorded on the Inspector’s Statement duly signed and witnessed on election night, the BoC proceeded to put three ballot bags on the counting table.
Atty Bill Hotz immediately objected to opening the bag; Mawdsley said he would call the GAB. The bag was opened, over our objections. But Mawdsley did agree to count the 288 ballots contained in that bag separately.
That’s not all folks, in fact, this pattern of open, winged, and improperly marked bags became a disturbing merry-go-round, time after time, in the Waukesha recount. Each time the an objection came around retired Judge Mawdsley (the replacement County Clerk for recused Nickolaus) gave the brass ring to Prosser and ordered the votes to be counted.
Saving the best Delafield example for last. The Bag Within A Bag story.
So, Prosser’s “what the hell is going on in Delafield” begins to take the shape of a tampered ballot bag
Through all tragi/comedy of bag errors – ballots appear to be stuffed. What does all this Delafield stuffing have to do with the 14,000 votes “found” in the City of Brookfield? You know the old adage about a skunk does not scent it’s own hole? It would be too obvious to ransack the bags in the ward where the votes were “found”, but it might serve as a diversion for all the the activity in Genesse and Delafeild.
The investigation keeps going, and going, and going…
Perhaps the scenario above, is where the evidence leads. The investigation has been on going since the votes were “found” all of nearly a half of a year. The attorney assigned to the investigation has submitted his report and recommendations. Now we wait, yet again, for the Government Accountability Board to initiate further action, when it is really quite simple. The record of vote flipping is easily discovered through the forensic examination of the programing cards used in the machines. It really would have been much easier to that in the first place, and make the whole time consuming and expensive recount process unnecessary.
Now is the time to forensically examine Kathy Nickolaus’ lap top computer, and all the the electronic programing used in the Spring Supreme Court Election.
