Waukesha Democratic election official confirms computer error

Rick Moran
Liberal heads are exploding all across America today as the results of the WI Supreme Court Election's dramatic turn. The 7500+ votes due to Prosser because of a computer error have caused the usual outcry of "stolen election" from the left.

I would suggest they keep their pants on for a few hours. There is a paper trail for those ballots and if the two totals don't match, then they can start screaming "conspiracy!"

But frankly, it doesn't look good for Kloppenburg. Ramona Kitzinger, the Democrat on the Waukesha County Board of Canvassers, reluctantly confirmed the computer error:


But at the news conference with Nickolaus, Ramona Kitzinger, the Democrat on the Waukesha County Board of Canvassers, said: "We went over everything and made sure all the numbers jibed up and they did. Those numbers jibed up, and we're satisfied they're correct."
As a Democrat, she said, "I'm not going to stand here and tell you something that's not true."

Waukesha County Executive Dan Vrakas, who sat in on Nickolaus' news conference, said voters can be confident in the results because "all the votes are in that office. If anyone wants to look at them and verify, they can."

Kristine Schmidt, the clerk in the city of Brookfield, said in a separate interview that she shared the results with the news media on election night.

She said she also sent the results twice to the county. After the first results were sent she said the county requested a second set of data because they wanted results tabulated in a certain format with fewer columns.

"We sent it to the county and called the county to make sure they got it," Schmidt said.

Nickolaus explained that when she got Brookfield's results the second time in the correct format, she failed to save it. So when she totaled the results for the unofficial final report Tuesday, Brookfield's total was not included and she didn't realize it.

Nickolaus's competence might be another question altogether. What was she doing keeping that data on her laptop in the first place?

It's clear that the "cheating" narrative on the left has already been set in stone. A hundred investigations won't satisfy them that their candidate lost - if the tallies add up when checked against the paper trail.

I wouldn't want to be Ms. Kitzinger this morning. Her mailbox are probably full of threats and nasty name calling - from her own side.
