Since it seems that yet again, a close election in Wisconsin is coming down to the exact same fucking district, and the exact same fucking county clerk, on Dusty’s recommendation I am re-posting a rant from April.
Rage Against The Machine
FUCK YOU, KATHY NIKOLAUS. FUCK YOUR PARTISAN PIEHOLE WITH THAT WISCONSIN-SHAPED AWARD THAT YOUR HANDS ARE NOT FIT TO HOLD. AND THEN SHOVE THAT AMERICAN FLAG RIGHT UP YOUR ASS UNTIL THE STARS ARE VISIBLE BEHIND THAT FUCKING SMILE AND THE TASSELS ARE HANGING OUT OF YOUR EARS.
So. The twisted scumbucket from Walkersha in that picture is either guilty of felonious fraud, ethical lapses large enough to drive a mothballed Space Shuttle through sideways, mind-bendingly appalling incompetence, or all three.
She claims that an entire voting district was inadvertently omitted from their tally reports on Tuesday. Somehow, an entire district showed up as ZERO when she reported it, and she did not find this worth looking at a bit closer before reporting results.
AND, when the votes for this putative district are tallied, it just so happens to put Prosser ahead by JUST ENOUGH to exceed the 0.5% threshold for automatic, State-funded recount. Convenient, that. Almost as if she waited until the reported results were firm before the final numbers could be determined.
She keeps the results on her own, personal PC. Without backup. Without security. Fuck what a fucking idiot.
Let’s be clear here: I do not know for certain that smirky McFuckingClerk up there knowingly committed election fraud, how could I? But given the way the Republicans in this state and country are behaving, I certainly do THINK that is the case, oh my fucking yes. Given that this election is vital for their anti-Wisconsin, pro-corporate agenda to make any headway.
Fuck the Republican Party in Wisconsin. They can’t even fucking do FRAUD believably.
I fully expect Turdwaffle Walker to Imperially suspend any recount attempts, either by defunding the election commission or firing them. Florida 2000 is a template, not an aberration.
OF COURSE she was near tears during the presser. She knows that she is going to be the sacrificial lamb to retain Fuckhead Prosser’s job and preserve Imperial Walker’s reign. She shouldn’t worry; she will be re-hired by a Koch Industries shill in some lucrative make work position, but she also knows she will have to be publicly shamed first. But things will turn out fine for this shitweasel of a County Clerk. I hear the $81,000 drunken college dropout’s position is available.
Fuck YOU, Kathy Nikolaus. Fuck you and you NEED to be fired on Monday. Get your fucking dirty hands out of my fucking state, and don’t touch the fucking doorknob on the way out. Here, let me get you started by kicking you in the ass.
Driftglass and BlueGal mentioned something in their podcast this week, which is further reinforced in this Great Orange Satan post. Her story partially hinges on the claim that she “forgot” to save the data in MS Access. Of course, Access does not require you to save.
Citizen Action of Wisconsin is calling for Federal investigation. On the day that the Federal Government shuts down. Ooops.
At least Kloppenberg is starting with a demand for Open Records, which will be the first part of challenging this extremely suspicious and disturbing turn of events. If the votes differential remains greater than 0.5%, Kloppenberg will need to pay for a recount; if so, I will post a link to donate towards this fund. A recount will be the only way to drag any shenanigans out into the light.
