David Prosser leads his challenger by 7,316 votes out of close to 1.5 million votes.
UPDATE April 21, 2011 @ 11:21 CST
RECOUNT will probably show that Justice David Prosser probably actually won by 20,000 when they get done with the voter fraud in Milwaukee and Dane counties!
After the state finalized the totals on Friday, Prosser declared victory, and, at a Monday news conference, he urged Kloppenburg to bow out without requesting a recount. “The result of the election is not in doubt,” he said Monday. One of his aides said that Prosser had scored “a strong enough win” that Kloppenburg ought to drop out, adding to that “to ask for a recount in any form will be enormously costly to the voters of this state.”
JoAnne Kloppenburg arrived at the state Government Accountability Board’s office in Madison barely an hour before the 5 p.m. local time deadline by which she had to ask for a recount or concede defeat. According to the vote count finalized by the state last week, she trails Justice David Prosser by 7,316 votes out of nearly 1.5 million cast in the April 5 election.
In an April 15 story about the Wisconsin Supreme Court election, The Associated Press erroneously reported the state would bear the costs of a recount. Local municipalities and counties would cover the expense, not the state.
The board’s director and general counsel said in a statement Wednesday afternoon that the recount process will begin next week.
UPDATE April 13, 2011 @10:15pm CST:
Now the left is interested in free, open and accurate elections. Welcome to all of you.
BTW….a reporting error to the media is not a crime. It is an error. And it highlights the need for educated adults to give those involved with tabulating, reporting, and verifying the votes the time to do their jobs. Assuming that your favorite media outlet ‘calling’ the vote for your political hero of the day is the final word is irresponsible!!!!
With less than two more days left to certify the April 5, 2011 election results, Justice Prosser is still ahead of the UNION backed Liberal Opponent Kloppenburg. Prosser currently leads Kloppenburg by 6,948 votes according to JSOnline Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
For the UNIONS whining about the huge win Prosser picked up in Waukesah County, which is a VERY HUGE Repubican county anyway, Prosser said he has no issues with a recount for validation.
“If you need to do a recount in Waukesha (County) and Waukesha (County) alone to satisfy heightened interest, that’s fine,” said Prosser campaign manager Brian Nemoir. “We believe it will only affirm the margin of victory we now enjoy.”
Election must be certified by April 15, 2011.
UPDATE April 8, 2011 @4:52pm CST:
According to JSOnline in Wisconsin, debating whether or not the 7,500 votes are “fishy” here is at they have found:
In short, before the “adjustment,” Waukesha County was a big outlier. It showed by far the largest drop-off in turnout between the 2010 race for governor last fall and Tuesday’s judicial race (from about 63% to 37%, for a decline of 26 points). After the adjustment, the drop-off is still one of the biggest in the state (from 63% to 42%), but not freakishly so. The statewide drop-off in turnout rate was 16 points, from 50% to 34%.
Here are the top 10 counties (out of 72) in Wisconsin, ranked by turnout of voting-age adults on Tuesday, using the new adjusted Waukesha County totals. Again, this is based on still unofficial returns:
Waukesha ranks fifth. Last fall it ranked second among the state’s 72 counties.
UPDATE April 7, 2011 @5:20pm CST:
JSOnline in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is reporting that Prosser GAINS 7,500 votes in Waukesha County
Madison – In a political bombshell, the clerk in a Republican stronghold is set to release new vote totals giving 7,500 votes in the state Supreme Court race back toward Justice David Prosser, swinging the race significantly in his favor.
The Waukesha County clerk’s office has told state elections officials that they will be adjusting the vote totals to give incumbent David Prosser more than 7,000 new votes, said Mike Haas, staff attorney for the state Government Accountability Board.
“Waukesha will be adjusting their vote totals by 14,000,” Haas said the Accountability Board was told.
The numbers will add some 11,000 votes for Prosser and some 3,000 for Kloppenburg, he said.

Sit Back and Enjoy the Re~Count because Wisconsin in 2008 had close to 5,300 Fraudulant votes……
UPDATE April 6, 2011 @ 2:40pm:
#1. Military ballots have NOT been counted YET!
#2. The Wall Street Journal is already reporting on the voter fraud via crazy voter laws in WI still in place. According to a 67 page report file in 2008 by the Milwaukee Police Department:
The report found that in 2004 between 4,600 and 5,300 more votes were counted in Milwaukee than the number of voters recorded as having cast ballots. Absentee ballots were cast by people living elsewhere; ineligible felons not only voted but worked at the polls; transient college students cast improper votes; and homeless voters possibly voted more than once. The report found that in 2004 a total of 1,305 “same day” voters gave information that was declared “un-enterable” or invalid by election officials.
|WI Supreme Court
||David Prosser (inc)
As of 2 pm, David Prosser and Kloppenburg are neck-and-neck for the only State Supreme Court seat up for re-election. Considering how slim the lead is, 204 votes we can expect a massive recount and verification process.
Question: Will this turn into an Al Franken where mysterious ballot boxes show up? Were all voters legally allowed to vote in WI? College kids, are they registered to vote in WI legally?
Hey-Just saying as we know what thugs the UNIONS are!
Breaking News: Jimmy Hoffa showed up to vote for Kloppeburg……Hey, ACORN was there what did you expect? LOL….
Recount Laws in Wisconsin:
Either party can request a recount
They must submit their request within 3 days after the election has been closed and explain where they want the recount and why
If the vote difference is no more than 1% then the person requesting the recount does NOT have to pay the recount fees. If the vote difference is more than 1%, then the person requesting the recount MUST pay the recount fees.
Snagged this from a meida site, heaven forbid they be neutral and sohw both Candidates versus the Liberal one only, but here is what they have:
