Quote of the day
Mistakes happen by clerks all the time. The good thing is that both parties are so data driven that it’s nearly impossible to steal an election. Unless we can prove errors are purposeful, we look foolish screaming about fraud.
– Jeff Christensen, Democratic Party of Wisconsin
Something for both parties to remember. I do think there are common sense reforms, such as photo id for voters and cleaning up the voter rolls, that are necessary. I think what happened in Racine during the recall election between John Lehman and Van Wanggaard was pretty outrageous. I also think Kathy Nickolaus’ screw-up in the Prosser race was pretty easy to foresee given all the other problems she had running elections. But when I hear people screaming about stolen elections, regardless of the party, I’m usually pretty quick to dismiss the idea of giving them any attention.
By the way, Jeff, it doesn’t help when top Democratic Party of Wisconsin officials scream fraud, too.
