The Democrat-backed challenger in the race for the Wisconsin Supreme Court is granted a recount as the collective bargaining bill moves through the state court system.
A county clerk discovered 14,000 unrecorded votes, which just happened to turn the election for the man she once worked for. "Human error," as she claims, or something more nefarious?
Some 14,000 votes went unreported Tuesday night in a hot election – the latest battleground for Republicans vs. labor unions. Democrats cry foul as the seat tilts toward the incumbent, a conservative. Experts, though, say such errors are common.
The race in recent weeks became a proxy referendum for how voters feel about Gov. Scott Walker (R) and his anti-union actions. A recount of the Wisconsin Supreme Court election is all but certain.
Millions of dollars have poured into Wisconsin for Election Day. At stake: a desire to swing the state Supreme Court majority on the issue of collective-bargaining power for unions.
