Voting The "Uncle Joe" Way In Waukesha County, Wisconsin

This is very suspicious: Over 7,000 Votes Magically "Found" For Prosser By Republican Waukesha County Clerk.

Given the Republican history of stealing elections, this is something we should have expected. After all the votes are in, suddenly Prosser gains 7,000 votes due to a "computer error" in the heavily Republican Waukesha County, magically swings the election back to David Prosser. I think we need to take a much closer look at Waukesha County for vote-rigging. Here's the story on Prosser's magical mystery victory. Kloppenberg has to ask for a recount, if she's on the wrong end of this final canvass, which seems likely. This is late-breaking news, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens now. According to some accounts, the law in Wisconsin requires that there has to be a voter-verified paper trail. The paper ballot in all computer voting is considered the official ballot. They'd better be able to account on paper for every single one of those 7,000+ votes. This thing isn't over.  It really stinks, though, doesn't it ... Or, as "Uncle" Joe Stalin used to say:

UPDATE — Wisconsion election law requires that "all direct recording electronic (DRE) voting systems [the touchscreen voting machine] produce a complete, permanent paper record showing all votes cast by the elector. The voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) is considered the official ballot and is to be used in a recount of each vote cast by the elector." This is the law in Wisconsin that was passed only a few years ago to require a paper trail for every electronic vote cast. According to reports from Waukesha, they ran out of paper ballots and had to revert to electronic voting. Whatever the case may be, the Waukesha County Clerk must produce a paper record of each one of these magically "found" 7,000+ votes for them to be considered the official ballot to be used in a recount. Your move, Waukesha County Clerk. Here it is; Page 12 of the Wisconsin Election Day Manual (2008):
