Wisconsin Election Board Won't Certify Results Until After Probe

Prudence? Or pandering to the angry left?

I have to say "prudence," actually. A probe into the matter is justified; there was definitely a major mistake made here, and if there is serial incompetence, someone needs to be out of a job.

Everything looks on the up-and-up, but if the shoes were on the other foot, and 7000 votes had been entered late for Kloppy, I sure would have wanted a probe, and would have been outraged had there not been one.

So I guess I'm okay with this.

"We're going to do a review of the procedures and the records in Waukesha before we certify the statewide results," Haas said.

"It's not that we necessarily expect to find anything criminal. But we want to make sure the public has confidence in the results,"

Yes, it is important to make sure there were no shenanigans and, assuming there weren't, that the public knows that the possibility of shenanigans has been examined and no shenanigans have been found.

I'm not afraid of the probe because it seems like it will just confirm what we think we already know -- honest error, and now the numbers are accurate.

I have a feeling that if the shoes were reversed on this point, the left would be baying, because they would definitely not have the confidence I do in the cleanness of the vote. They would be very worried indeed what any probe might turn up.

Thanks to Tami.
