Miscount in Madison!

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Apr• 08•11

In a flurry of meetings this morning, and with everything going on — or not going on — with the federal government, I missed this story in the Wall Street Journal.

It seems that the judicial candidate in Wisconsin, JoAnne Kloppenburg, did not, in fact, win the heated and nationally significant judicial race in the Badger State this week.  The other guy did, sitting Supreme Court Justice David Prosser.  Forty thousand votes from a conservative suburb of Milwaukee had somehow gone uncounted.

This story does not seem to be getting much ink today with everything happening in the world, but its implications are tremendous.  It looks like the union Left has just been handed a second shattering loss in Madison.

With Judge Prosser remaining on the bench, we can expect to see Governor Scott Walker’s public union reforms promptly enacted.

    Hi Billy! I don’t think the fat lady is even in the building yet, so don’t get too excited.
