Investigate Over 14,000 "Found" Votes in Wisconsin!

After a contentious Wisconsin Supreme Court election this week, progressive challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg declared victory over Republican David Prosser by around 200 votes, prompting talk of a recount.

But on Thursday, incredibly, the clerk of a solidly Republican county announced she failed to save 14,315 votes on her computer. These votes would put Prosser ahead by 7,500, just above the number that would allow Kloppenburg to call for a recount on the state's dollar.

There are too many discrepancies, and this election is too important to NOT have an independent federal investigation into the matter.

      We need a totally independent investigation of the discrepancies... too many problems ...With officials not individual voters Perhaps we need a UN investigation

      She had been advised numerous times not to run things her own way. Now, it has led to this mess, and, yet, she still holds office? Get her out!

      I would like to be sure she is directly and specifically asked if she discarded any votes or voting material at any time before or after it should have been counted.

      Her actions in rejecting the recommendations of the audit before the election, her actions in not immediately revealing the breech and the subsequent way the canvass was handled all add many questions of integrity and ethical behavior. I'm sorry but I find it hard to believe especially as more discrepancies come up regarding previous elections as well.
