WI Supreme Court candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg has until close of business on Wednesday, April 20, 2011, to request a statewide, full recount of all ballots cast in the April 5th Supreme Court election.
The race was close. With a total of approximately 1.5 million votes cast, Mr. Prosser, the conservative, pro-business incumbent, is in the lead by less than half of one percent of the vote (0.5%).
The suspicious handling of votes in conservative Waukesha county is one matter of concern to all who fight for fair elections. But the other issue is this: people do make mistakes in filling out their ballots. When a race is this close the only way to determine who absolutely won is to review all ballots cast with human eyes and resolve any disputes over ballots that are questionable.
As a candidate I have been through one recount. As a candidate's representative I have been through another recount. Mistakes happen in completing ballots. When in doubt and in very close races the only way to obtain certainty, as to who won "fair and square," is to conduct a full recount.
Therefore please consider signing this petition to urge Ms. Kloppenburg to demand a statewide recount. Petition results will be provided to Ms. Kloppenburg late Wednesday afternoon, April 20th. Thank you very much!
Dear Ms. Kloppenburg:
We, the undersigned, urge you to demand a full, statewide recount of the WI Supreme Court race. It is important to voters in WI and across the United States that the winner of the Supreme Court race won fair and square.
There is too much corruption in our political system. Therefore it is important to us all to know who really did win in Wisconsin. Please demand the state conduct a full, statewide recount of all ballots cast in the April 5, 2011 WI Supreme Court race.
Thank you for running and for demanding the recount as a service to the public!!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
