I'll be the first to admit it -- I'm delighted that it appears that some form of incompetence/gamesmanship/??? caused a major miscount in heavily Republican Waukesha County, which has now delivered about 7000 more votes to David Prosser in the election against Joanne Kloppenburg, the union hack who was sent to take over the Supreme Court. That 7000 vote swing should be enough to pretty much guarantee a narrow Prosser victory.
Having said that, I completely understand that Democrats are going to be pissed, pissed, pissed about this. They should be. If you assumed you had won and there was a deus ex machina of this proportion pulled out the 11th hour, you'd have every reason to suspect that the result is tainted.
I was calling for all manner of investigations this morning when it appeared the Kloppenburg had won. Nothing changes. We need to know if this was an honest mistake or not. We also need to know if either side was cheating, or both sides were cheating. We need to prosecute vote fraud no matter who commits it, because either side doing it cheapens and demeans the government. Even those of us who favor limited government don't want its legitimacy to be threatened.
So let's investigate away. I trust that Prosser and his side played fair. If not, woe betide them.
