    "Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus (R) has announced sharply amended totals for her county in the Supreme Court race from Tuesday night -- saying that she had inadvertently failed to properly import and save data into a Microsoft Access database, omitting the numbers from the city of Brookfield and its over 14,000 votes. And as such, according to Nickolaus's new totals, Justice David Prosser has gained a net 7,582 votes -- overcoming the razor-thin lead of liberal-backed challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, who had already declared victory on Wednesday.

    We have now verified all the results, and are confident that they have been properly reported to the Government Accountability Board."

    "The announcement dashes the hopes of labor activists hoping to repudiate Gov. Scott Walker's anti-union policies by electing a liberal judge to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. "

    Here we go. Now the conspiracy advocates have an argument that Walker somehow had the election rigged after the fact. Sounds like old time Chicago!

    Sounds like a complete crushing defeat and repudiation of the Union's message.

    This looks very bad. That woman from the election who was trying to explain this sounded like she was making a hostage tape.

    Yeah because when you beat someone by 30 pts. 2 months ago, and then squeak by in the general, that's a sign you won the argument in between?

    funny

    The Republican-appointed election official was using her own computer system instead of the state's. The results were tabulated in...wait for it now...

    Microsoft Access!

    And she claims she "Failed to save" the data. Lol...of course you did!

    None of you Liberals minded in that recent election where the Democrat won because election officials kept finding more votes in the trunks of their cars.
