Despite weeks of her campaign suggesting that “ballot bag security” issues tainted the election, JoAnne Kloppenburg decided not to pursue a court challenge. 

As described here many times, the ballot bag security issue never raised any serious concerns about either election fraud or mishandling of ballots.  Kloppenburg also raised other “anomalies,” such...

There will be no Battle of the Bulging Ballot Bags.

JoAnne Kloppenburg just announced that she will not file a lawsuit challenging the recount which found her losing to David Prosser by 7004 votes.

As discussed here previously, Kloppenburg had alleged that there were “anomalies” in the election, including torn or open ballot bags.

The “ballot bag security” issue was phony not because there were no tears or openings, but because there was no evidence that this was deliberate or affected the vote at all.  The Wisconsin Goverment Accountability Board rejected any suggestion that the election has other than routine, non-material adjustments, and specifically rejected the...

As reported yesterday, David Prosser is on track to win the recount over JoAnne Kloppenburg.  It is possible that the Wisconsin GAB will report the final results today, and if it does, I’ll update the post.  As of now, it looks like Prosser will win by a margin of approximately 7000...

JoAnne Kloppenburg’s recount quest has been the glittery coach to which Wisconsin Democrats have hitched their hopes and dreams, after the devastating loss to David Prosser.

As we have documented here over the past several weeks, the recount has shown little change from the election night and canvass vote counts.  Despite all the...

(Originally posted 5/12/11, but lost in the Big Blogger Blackout of 2011, brought back to life courtesy of the Restore Honor and Sanity (and missing Legal Insurrection posts) Project)

Just a meaningless but curious etymology. From Kloppenburg.org:

Last night I called on JoAnne Kloppenburg to concede.  I don’t think she listened.

Kloppenburg’s only chance of winning is to knock out several thousand legitimate votes by challenging “ballot security” based on gaps and open...

As discussed in two prior posts, JoAnne Kloppenburg’s team has been attacking “ballot security” in Waukesha County, particularly in the city of Brookfield, based on claims that there were gaps or openings in ballot bags.  The implication is that there was ballot stuffing or ballot removal after the canvass.

This conspiracy theory...

As I posted yesterday, the city of Brookfield recount is complete and there was almost no change in the vote count from the canvass and as reported by Brookfield on election night.  That all three vote counts match almost precisely puts to bed, in the minds of rational people, the suggestions...

The city of Brookfield, and Waukesha County in general, have been the heart of the attack by JoAnne Kloppenburg’s recount forces seeking to overcome a 7316 vote deficit. 

As discussed yesterday, the strategy was to contest whether ballot bags were properly sealed, the implication being that Prosser forces stuffed the ballot...

The recount in Wisconsin is moving along pretty much as expected given the history of recounts in Wisconsin:  There hasn’t been much change in the vote count.

As of the end of the day yesterday, with 82% of the voting units in, and 78% of the votes recounted, Kloppenburg h...

As of the end of the day yesterday, with 75.43% of the reporting units and just under 70%, of the votes recounted, JoAnne Kloppenburg has picked up … (drum roll please) … 210 votes.

Based on the Kloppenburg-O-Meter’s estimate of daily cost of the recount, these 210 votes will have cost Wisconsin taxpayers a...

The demand for a recount, at taxpayer expense, by JoAnne Kloppenburg has produced almost no change in the vote count after six days of counting, but has cost taxpayers several hundred thousand dollars already.

The Prosser Recount committee has a handy way of keeping track of the tally and the cost, what...

Updates: Unfortunately I did not get to watch the news conference live. From what I read, it was a real tinfoil hat moment. I’ll post video as soon as available.

The results have just been posted in the Milwaukee County canvass, and nothing much changed from yesterday. AP reports Prosser picked up 11 more votes and is the winner.

I repeat, JoAnne Kloppenburg lost.  David Prosser won.

The vote margin stands at 7316, a virtually insurmountable lead for a recount.  All the...
