Joanne Kloppenburg concedes to David Prosser in WI Supreme Court race.

IT’S ABOUT FLIPPING TIME, KLOPPEN… (deep breath)

…that is to say, Wisconsin Assistant Attorney General Joanne Kloppenburg has conceded the election results for her Supreme Court bid against incumbent David Prosser.  My congratulations to Justice Prosser; you had an unexpectedly difficult race, and you were able to succeed nonetheless.  Well done, sir.

Also, a word to the Greater Wisconsin Committee?  You know, the group that created that scurrilous ad that was so awful that it caused a backlash in the Prosser/Kloppenburg race.  Anyway, just a reminder: if you guys weren’t a bunch of hate-filled partisan hacks who would cheerfully attack an abuse survivor in order to keep your Big Labor/Democrat masters happy, you might have won that election.  But you didn’t, which means that you more of less smeared excrement on your collective souls for… nothing.  Nothing at all.

Have a nice day!

Where are the adult Wisconsin Democrats?

Because somebody in the Wisconsin Democratic party needs to be the adult in the David Prosser/JoAnne Kloppenburg state Supreme Court recount, here.  This nonsense has gone on long enough: three weeks and a quarter-million taxpayer dollars later, it has – not ‘become’ obvious that Prosser has won.  It’s been obvious since they certified the results.  What’s more properly ‘become’ obvious is that the Kloppenburg camp has decided to simply wait until the recount is over, then challenge the results in court on the grounds of a Democrat lost/ they don’t like the results/democracy.  Which is why the Democrats are doing things like disenfranchising nuns; it’s all about the narrative that they hope to present, at this point.

As to why the Democrats need to find some adults, fast… it’s for their own self-preservation, really.  Shark & Shepherd gives the reason: even postulating that a successful challenge to and overthrow of legitimate election* results occurs (which neither he or I think is likely), the consequences to the Democratic party of Wisconsin would be disastrous.

#rsrh Quick update on Prosser/Kloppenburg recount.

That’s the Wisconsin Supreme Court race that was supposed to be a stunning repudiation of Governor Scott Walker’s (R) reforms, right up to the moment that David Prosser won.

Anyway, they’re down to recounting one county – which Prosser won, handily – and the number hasn’t remotely changed enough to justify Kloppenburg continuing on with the recount.  Then again, it’s not Kloppenburg’s money – just the Wisconsin taxpayers’ – so expect her to keep letting the Democratic party erode away her respectability, dignity, and good name for the benefit of Big Labor.

I’d feel bad, except it’s not like anybody threatened her or anything.  Labor unions reserve that sort of thing for teenagers trapped in their houses.

It is over. David Prosser won his Supreme Court race.

Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board has received the full number of certified results by county in last week’s state Supreme Court race between David Prosser and Joanne Kloppenburg.  With all counties in, Prosser leads by 7,316 votes: this margin is enough to permit a free recount by the state on the defeated Kloppenburg’s behalf, but 7,316 votes is a difference that is not only far beyond the likelihood of being reversed by a fair recount; it is also beyond what political scientists call ‘the margin of fraud.’  Simply put: Kloppenburg can waste Wisconsin’s money, if her Democratic/Big Labor bosses wish it, but it won’t make a difference anyway.

I fully expect that the Activist Left will wish to ride this one out to the bitter end – which is entertaining, primarily because it will cause them more long term angst and disappointment than anything that I could do.  Or possibly even be allowed to do without risking serious long-term harm to my basic ethical state.

I think David Prosser has won his WI Supreme Court race.

At least, for him to lose it at this point will be actually be a bit of a surprise.  The numbers don’t seem to be there for his opponent.

First, let’s look at the total votes cast in Milwaukee and Outagamie counties (the two remaining to be canvassed), as of right now.  Prosser’s current vote margin: 7,310.

Milwaukee % Outagamie % Combined %
Prosser 98,933 43% 24,775 57% 123,708 46%
Kloppenburg 128,644 57% 18,885 43% 147,529 54%
227,577 43,660 271,237

Assuming that there’s simply no sudden appearance of 7,311 Kloppenburg ballots – and I invite any Democratic election fraud enthusiasts to try; I enjoy watching perp walks – the Democrats will need a net shift of those ballots for the same amount.  That would mean a net 3 percentage point shift towards the Democrats… which is a lot, in this context.  To put it another way: 7,310 votes is (in my opinion) outside of the margin of fraud.

#rsrh David Prosser refuses to provoke the Lords of Karma.

Smart of him:

Justice David Prosser appeared on Fox News Thursday night and told host Greta Van Sustern, “I’m not conceding, and I’m not congratulating. And I’m not claiming victory.”

“We’re simply waiting out the process,” Prosser added.

One of the single most foolish things that you can do in this business is prematurely declare victory.  Sure, when it works it’s great; but if it doesn’t(more…)

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.

PS: It’s still going to be a long, grinding recount process in Wisconsin.  But a seven thousand vote margin changes the dynamic.

This ad about Wisconsin Democrat Joanne Kloppenburg scares the Left.

I’m repeating myself, but the Left keeps trying to push back on this ad highlighting Wisconsin Democrat (and candidate for Supreme Court Justice) Joanne Kloppenburg’s utter lack of compassion for abuse survivors:

…so pass it along.  Make sure that the Wisconsin voter in your life watches it.  The vote is tomorrow; the incumbent is David Prosser; and his site is here.

Wisconsin Democrat Joanne Kloppenburg ignored abuse victim’s pleas.

Background: Earlier this month, Wisconsin Democrats* created a campaign ad against incumbent Supreme Court Justice David Prosser that was so slimy that it sparked a formal protest by one of the abuse victims that Wisconsin Democrats were pretending to care about. Not that such a protest even remotely slowed down Joanne Kloppenburg, of course: the woman is so desperate to win next week’s Supreme Court election for the Democratic party that she adamantly refused to even mildly condemn the contemptible ad when asked outright about it. So the victim** tried again, personally reaching out to Kloppenburg and asking her to at do something about this attack as being unworthy of both her campaign and her political affiliation. Let him tell you what happened with that:
