Prosser ahead in Wisconsin Supreme Court race

Expect howls of outrage from the Democrats, and an effort to dig up new votes for Kloppenburg. From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

In a political bombshell, the clerk in a Republican stronghold is set to release new vote totals giving 8,000 votes in the state Supreme Court race back toward Justice David Prosser, swinging the race significantly in his favor.

The Waukesha County clerk's office has told state elections officials that they will be adjusting the vote totals to give incumbent David Prosser more than 7,000 new votes, said Mike Haas, staff attorney for the state Government Accountability Board.

"Waukesha will be adjusting their vote totals by 14,000," Haas said the Accountability Board was told.

The numbers will add some 11,000 votes for Prosser and some 3,000 for Kloppenburg, he said. Haas said the Accountability Board was not giving a reason for the change, but more details are expected soon from Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus.

Owing to the sheer number of votes, this would be hard to fabricate. But expect the Demcorats to protest vigorously.
