Quote of the Day
Two Waukesha County communities are in the 8th Senate District: Butler and Menomonee Falls. Butler sent in totals within 35 minutes of close of polls at 8 p.m., and those were posted early in the evening.
But Menomonee Falls Clerk Janice Moyer told us that heavy turnout there prevented tabulation of absentee ballots in some cases until after polls closed.
“It takes time, and we want them to do it correctly,” Moyer said of poll workers.
Nickolaus did not get most of the Menomonee Falls count until 10:36 p.m., according to Moyer. Nickolaus said results were posted on the county’s web site by 10:47 p.m. The last batch came in an hour later, and Nickolaus said she posted them within six minutes.
So the gap in reporting Waukesha County results was not due to Nickolaus, who posts and tallies the totals but does not count the votes.
What happened in April is well known, she didn’t post the tallies from Brookfield. Even though they were available on other sources of media if you looked for them.
You know, it used to be said that political operatives say the craziest crap out there to keep the unintelligent of us riled up and angry at the opposition. “Confuse the Rubes” is what it’s been called in the past.
After years of this from Tate and Zielinski, I’m seriously beginning to believe the rubes are running the show.
