Dems Call For Investigation Into 2006 Van Hollen Race Vote Totals
MADISON - Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate has asked the Government Accountability Board to investigate the vote totals in Waukesha County that showed an apparent discrepancy in the 2006 statewide election.
Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen won that election by 9,000 votes. The apparent discrepancy involves 17,000 votes.
Tate said that the situation is similar to the current issue in Waukesha County concerning the current Supreme Court race.
14,000 votes from Brookfield were not saved in the final total on election night earlier this month.
After it was discovered, the unofficial lead in the State Supreme Court race shifted from challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg to incumbent David Prosser.
