Counting Votes

by Sue Peacock on Flickr

There was an election this week in Wisconsin for a judgeship that featured Scott Walker’s choice versus a progressive Democrat, and the Democrat won in a stunning statewide rebuke of Scott Walker, the governor that chose to go after collective bargaining rights for state employees, even though the unions conceded deep pay cuts because they understood the state was in debt. Stunning, as this state voted HEAVILY Republican in the midterm election. Then all of a sudden, the Republican clerk announced she located about 11,000 missing votes, votes that turned over the result. How many other votes did she forget to count?
