POE Press Release: Nonpartisan Group Offers $25,000 Reward For Evidence of Tampering in Wisconsin’s Supreme Court Election

Nonpartisan Advocacy Group Offers $25,000 Reward For Evidence of Tampering in Wisconsin's Supreme Court Election

WASHINGTON, May 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — ProtectOurElections.org today offered a $25,000 reward for "information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person or persons for election tampering, resulting in reversal of the current outcome of the April 5, 2011 Wisconsin Supreme Court election in which David Prosser is said to lead JoAnne Kloppenburg by more than 7,000 votes." A reward poster is located at http://www.velvetrevolution.us/images/SC-Reward.pdf.

ProtectOurElections.org, a network of organizations spearheaded by government accountability watchdog group VelvetRevolution.us, had publicly encouraged Supreme Court candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg to pursue a statewide hand recount of the election. Kloppenburg did request the recount, now underway throughout the state. In some jurisdictions, however, the ballots are being tabulated by the same optical scan machines that produced the first vote count.

Chain of custody violations continue to emerge, particularly in Waukesha, during state Supreme Court election 'recount'

ALSO: $25,000 reward offered for evidence of WI election tampering…

May 5, 2011- Five out of six bags of ballots from first batch to be counted out of the City of Brookfield in Waukesha County, WI today, were discovered "almost wide open" during Day 9 of the statewide Supreme Court election "recount". The bags were open and unsealed, according to both photographic evidence and an eye-witnesses account from the counting room. (Many more exclusive photos posted below.)

"When the ballot bags were taken out and placed upon the counting table, we were literally stunned," one of the citizen observers, Mary Magnuson, a Kloppenburg volunteer, told The BRAD BLOG this morning. "5 out of the 6 ballot bags were almost literally wide open, and ballots could be clearly seen."

The ballots in those bags were among the 14,000 said to have been cast in the April 5th election, but left off of Waukesha County's tally as reported to the media on Election Night.
