Vote Count Error Correction Puts Prosser Up by +7000 Over Big Labor Candidate Kloppenburg

This will make labor unions and liberals squeal. The Wisconsin Supreme Court seat was to be a show of labor union power in the wake of Republicans passing public employee collective bargaining reform. The labor candidate has lost.
(Weekly Standard)- Supreme Court justice David Prosser has picked up more than 7,381 votes in Waukesha County, a conservative county outside of Milwaukee, as part of the statewide canvass following the election for Supreme Court on Tuesday. The total gives Prosser a comfortable lead as the canvass continues Friday.

The error came when Waukesha County clerk Kathy Nickolaus failed to save some 14,000 votes that came from wards in Brookfield before passing the vote total along to the Associated Press. County officials discovered the mistake Wednesday and shared the information with state election officials on Thursday. Prosser won Waukesha County with more than 70 percent of the vote there.
