Something Smells in Wisconsin and it’s not the Cheese…
There were just over a million signatures on the petition to recall Walker. Those people who signed will surely vote. Then add on the others who would vote against Walker and when all the votes come in, there should be at least a million votes for Barrett. I would imagine the majority of the people who signed plus another hundred thousand, if not more after so many teachers have been fired, would vote for Barrett.
I smell voter fraud, or somehow votes are “filtered” out for whatever reason someone feels they’re not legal. No, I’m not being a sore loser. Well, yes I am very disappointed. But what really bothers me is April, 2011…
Last April, the spring elections for Wisconsin Supreme Court had the incumbent Justice David Prosser (R) running neck-in-neck with challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg (D). At one point, Koppenburg was declared the winner. Then magically… a laptop appear with over 7,000 votes on it for Prosser. And who found this missing laptop? Waukesha Co. Clerk Kathy Nickolaus who was granted immunity after the state’s caucus scandal. She was then an Assembly Republican Caucus employee.
Now as I publish this, currently 85.3% of the votes are in. For Barrett (D): 911,120 for 45.0%. And Wanker, I mean Walker has 1,101,144 for 54.4%. And these numbers are not sitting right with me.
Something smells and it is not Limburger Cheese.
UPDATE: 11:15 PM Central Time
Well, Barrett has achieved his million votes. 92.9% reporting. I’m still not happy and still believe something stinks….
UPDATE: 12:45 AM, June 6th, 2012: Central Time
I have no foundation, no proof, only a gut instinct combined with the laptop appearing last year that there is some major vote rigging and fraud going on. This coming election frightens me.
Citizens United + SCOTUS + Koch Bros et al = no more democracy
