Stop them d–n pictures

Bradblog cartoon on Wisconsin election

(From Bradblog)

“Stop them d–n pictures. I don’t care what the papers write about me. My constituents can’t read. But, damn it, they can see the pictures.” —Boss Tweed

The cartoon perfectly expresses the reality that it’s unlikely that the people will ever believe that David Prosser won his judicial seat fairly. The examination of Waukesha–and, one hopes, all of Wisconsin’s votes– continues. Wisconsin will be lucky if the investigation does uncover election fraud, since otherwise the stage is set for decades of bitter conflict.

  1. A-yep. Waukesha County is notoriously badly run.

    It might help preserve an image of probity if the Waukesha County Clerk, who is responsible for tabulating and reporting electoral results, did not have a history of partisan corruption and incompetent management of elections, and was not a former employee of the candidate who benefitted from the late-reported votes.
