One Wisconsin Now Statements on Kloppenburg Recount Request

"Our Democracy, Contrary to the Astonishing Claim of Prosser's Lawyer, Is Not 'Frivolous'"

MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements regarding Supreme Court candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg’s request for a statewide recount after the narrow margin and the unprecedented controversy over the vote count and issues related to the integrity of the vote count in Waukesha County.

“The request for a recount is completely justified given the controversy over the Waukesha County Clerk’s actions, her secrecy and the narrow margin. The unprecedented turnout by working Wisconsinites, due in large part to continuing lying, deceit and disregard for the laws of Wisconsin by Gov. Scott Walker and his allies in the legislature, may be a problem for Walker, David Prosser and their pro-corporate string-pullers, but it truly is what democracy looks like. We must ensure our elections are fair and clean and that the will of the people is honored. Our democracy, contrary to the astonishing claim of Prosser’s lawyer, is not ‘frivolous.’”
