WI GOP Holds Senate As Dems Fail To Get Needed 3 Seats

What makes this so damned incredible is that the deciding race ended up in Waukesha County where Clerk Kathy Nickolaus has been under fire in the past during the David Prosser v. JoAnne Kloppenburg  battle for the Wisconsin Supreme Court where Nickolaus “found” 7000 votes for Republican David Prosser.

Within the past hour, the WI Democratic Party issued a statement, accusing Nickolaus of “tampering” with the results. Here is their full statement:

Waukesha County TamperingMADISON-Following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate following evidence of election tampering in the 8th State Senate District race.

“The race to determine control of the Wisconsin Senate has fallen in the hands of the Waukesha County clerk, who has already distinguished herself as incompetent, if not worse. She is once more tampering with the results of a consequential election and in the next hours we will determine our next course of action. For now, Wisconsin should know that a dark cloud hangs over these important results.”

Wisconsin Democrats have fallen just narrowly short of an ambitious goal – the attempt to pick up three state Senate seats through recall elections and take a majority in the chamber. As of early Wednesday morning, with six incumbent Republicans on the ballot, Democrats have defeated two — but narrowly missed out in two others.

Democrats defeated Republican state Sen. Dan Kapanke, who represented the most Dem-leaning seat of any Republican in the chamber, by a 55%-45% margin. They also won a 51%-49% victory over state Sen. Randy Hopper, whose campaign was also damaged by a messy divorce, and allegations by his estranged wife that he “now lives mostly in Madison” after having an affair.

This would get Democrats from their previous 19-14 minority, following the 2010 Republican wave, to a 17-16 margin. In two more safe Republican districts, incumbents Robert Cowles and Sheila Harsdorf won by margins of 60%-40% and 58%-42%, respectively.

Democrats were already crying foul in the Darling race, due to late returns in heavily Republican Waukesha County — the same place where, during the April state Supreme Court race, the declared discovery of an election night computer error gave several thousand votes and a margin of victory to conservative Justice David Prosser.

In a press release late Tuesday night, state Dem chair Mike Tate was already alleging fraud on the part of Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus:

“The race to determine control of the Wisconsin Senate has fallen in the hands of the Waukesha County clerk, who has already distinguished herself as incompetent, if not worse. She is once more tampering with the results of a consequential election and in the next hours we will determine our next course of action. For now, Wisconsin should know that a dark cloud hangs over these important results.”

  1. Hey Don. The woman is a walking voter fraud machine…and it seems everyone is turning a blind eye. Some of that Koch money and Pac money from anonymous donors must be going to make sure she has the best lawyers because the woman has literally gotten away with unadulterated voter fraud.
