    I feel like I've stumbled upon Freerepublic.  This is why you don't declare victory when you are only up 200 votes.

      Pseudonymous stranger making bold categorical assertions or Kloppenburg and the seasoned political professionals presumably advising her?  Tough one....

      Unplug the Koch machine! It's swallowing people's money!

      where 14,000 votes simply appeared two days after a county reported 100 percent of its votes?

      As far as conspiracy theories go, it isn't that crazy.  It's conceivable that there was no foul play -- just a monumental f-up.  But it still makes sense to thoroughly investigate the action.  This is pretty much the definition of a voting "irregularity".  It may turn out to be an irregularity explained by sloppiness and incompetence, but it's still problematic.
