Will Wanggaard want recount?

Will Wanggaard want recount?

Postby Shorty » Wed Jun 06, 2012 8:18 pm

When Kloppenburg asked for a recount in 2011, Repubs said she was wasting time and money and should just concede and stop whining.

When Gore and Kerry trailed Bush in 2000 and 2004 and asked for a recunt, Repubs said they were wasting time and money and should just concede and stop whining.

Now with the WI Senate control at stake, Repub Wanggaard is behind and says he may want a recount. If he does the hypocrisy will be overwhelming.

I do not get the feeling that being seen as hypocritical enters the calculus for this crew. It is not such a factor when their opposition does not possess a state wide echo chamber.

Do you know what the number has to be to trigger an automatic recount? I think it's less than 1K and I also think the vote was decided by less than 1k.

Knowing how the leftists operate, "By any means necessary" and they are all in in favor of "you don't need to have an ID to vote" and "same day registration/vote", throw in acorn's shenanigans, and it would be very prudent for any sane person never to trust a (leftist) democrat win if it's close.

Didn't that leftist comedian in mn finally win after something like three recounts? And afterwards there was the typical massive democrat voter fraud?

Why is it "voter fraud" when Dem's win a recount and "democracy in action" when GOP's win a recount?

Explain that without sounding like Mr Burns.

Nope

Any candidate who received a vote can ask for a recount. If the difference between the winning candidate and the requesting candidate is less that 0.5% then it is paid for by the state, otherwise the requesting candidate has to pay for it. So if Wanggaard wants a recount he will have to cough up the cash I believe.

Lehman is declared the winner. Wanggaard has to decide if he wants a recount and he would have to pay for it, like Francis Di Domizio said.

The Republican voting machines must have malfunctioned in Racine. Someone let the bribed clerks know so they can fix it.

The official count actually put Lehman 55 votes higher than the earlier, unofficial one. Van Wangaard can still ask for a recount, and he hasn't conceded. No voting irregularities have been reported by county voters.

I agree with you as I read your post, that's what I recall also.

Ex-celllll-ent! Oops, DOH, I guess I can't, so just some quick links:

http://www.maciverinstitute.com/2012/06 ... -the-vote/

http://mediatrackers.org/2012/06/04/bre ... ction-law/

And personally, I'm always suspicious of well monied institutions (democrat party) that make it a priority that the people that cast votes don't need to prove they are even eligible to cast a vote, much less are the actual person voting.......

I didn't know it was up to the individual voter to report any "irregularities".

If you want to know what he said, it was a bunch of links to the MacIver Institute.
