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. ...

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...

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...

Several days ago the Editorial Board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel joined a growing chorus expressing exasperation that JoAnne Kloppenburg failed to see her own recount folly. Among other things, Kloppenburg’s ballot bag security complaint has been rendered just a theory because the recount votes...

(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: As my father explains, the Kloppen part means “‘fighting’,...

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 openings in ballot bags. But I also noted that this was...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Local news in Wisconsin is reporting that JoAnne Kloppenburg has filed for a full statewide recount. Details to follow. 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...

The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) has completed its inquiry into the Waukesha County vote count, which put David Prosser into the lead by 7316 votes, and has found the vote count to be accurate, with only a handful of questioned votes. As reported by The...

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...

If not, it’s all over in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, as reported by WiscPolitics Election Blog: The canvasses from Sauk and Taylor counties have now been posted to the GAB website. But it could be until the end of today or even tomorrow before...
