A number of people, including myself, have poured over the reported vote totals from the recent Recall election for Gov Walker.
For a little background for those not familiar with the situation in Wisconsin. Gov Walker took office in January 2011. He immediately started attacking Public Unions demanding concessions and stripping the Unions from bargaining for wages and working conditions. As you can guess this did cause a brouhaha such as an occupation of the State Capitol and large protests.
In April of 2011 an election was held for the State Supreme Court between the Incumbent David Prosser and the challenger JoAnne Kloppenberg. Intially Ms Kloppenberg was given little chance as polls in February showed her losing by about 30 points and only two months before the election. Well surprisingly due to the upheaval concernign Gov Walker and the Unions the election was very close. On election night Kloppenberg had a 214 vote lead. Two days later it was reported that about 15,000 votes in heavy Republican Waukesha County were not included. This necessitated a recount whch showed Prosser up by 7,004 votes.
A Recall was started against Walker in November of 2011 and in the 60 days prescribed by law collected 900,000 signatures, 540,000 required for a Recall. A Recall election was scheduled for June 5, 2012.
Now remember the close Supreme Court race mentioned above and the recall petition drive with the 900,000 signatures collected would certainly lead most people to believe Gov Walker was not all that popular with a sizable portion of the electorate. All day until poll closing media reports were that exit polls showed the race a "dead heat". Yet 45 minutes after poll closing it was called for Walker with about a 7 point margin. Exit polls are not 7 points off.
As I mentioned before many people have looked at the results and can see many "irregularities" with the numbers. Please take a moment to check the sites listed below. Remember the truth is in the numbers. Every election will have a few unusual numbers but this election is rife with them. One can only conclude that requires the powers that be look into this. Democracy will be lost if the elections are rigged. This election was rigged.
If you wish to see my numbers please let me know and I can get them to you.
