Wisconsin Republican shenanigans in recall elections
The Republicans in Wisconsin have held on to 3 seats (dist. 14, 10 & 2). The Democrats have recalled the incumbents in 2 districts (18 & 32). The last district which will decide who controls the Wisconsin Senate is #8. The final results will probably not be known until tomorrow. But it looks like the shenanigans of Republican Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus are responsible for the confusion over the election. She has been accused of similar antics in recent elections (see video below). Remember Florida Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, in the 2000 campaign, well the Republicans in Wisconsin seem to be recreating the same drama.
