With Wisconsin Republicans claiming that there were no “errors” only a politically motivated twisting of fact by the Associated Press, Rep. Tammy Baldwin has asked the Department of Justice to investigate how Waukesha County managed to not report 14,000 votes in the recent Supreme Court Judge election. Republicans are screaming that there must be something wrong with thousands of Milwaukee votes that only recorded voting for the judge’s race. They seem to believe that people will vote on things they don’t care about instead of showing up to vote on things they do care about.

What prompted Rep. Baldwin’s request is not so much the fact that Waukesha County didn’t tell the Associated Press about the actual vote tally as the fact that there have been a couple of explanations under the vague title of “human error” for the votes not be transmitted to the Secretary of State’s office. It doesn’t help that the “proper count” of those 14,000 votes somehow ended up with JoAnne Kloppenburg’s lead of around 300 votes turning into a defeat by 7,500. To achieve that, 11,850 voters in Waukesha County would have had to vote for David Prosser and only 2,950 people voted for Kloppenburg, in a race where the candidates had run within 3% of each other even in the rural, conservative counties.

In Baldwin’s explanation for requesting the investigation she said “Following this week’s election for the Wisconsin Supreme Court, numerous constituents have contacted me expressing serious doubt that this election was a free and fair one. They fear, as I do, that political interests are manipulating the results.” Justice Department spokesman Wyn Hornbuckle said the that department would review the letter, which asked for investigation by the Justice Department Public Integrity Section which oversees prosecution of election crimes. Hornbuckle offered no other comment.
