More questions are being raised about how Waukesha Clunty Clerk Kathy Nickoaus told her commissioners about the 14,000+ vote counting error.
With little detail or advance notice, says a commissioner.
Ramona Kitzinger, in a first-person statement released Monday, describes being called into Nickolaus' office shortly before a news conference:
"It was at that point that I was first made aware of an error Kathy had made in Broofkield City," the statement says. The explanation was the same one she gave publicly, that she forgot to save the voter information and noticed it on Wednesday.
"Kathy didn't offer an explanation about why she didn't mention anything before Thursday afternoon's canvass completion, but showed us different tapes where numbers seemed to add up, though I have no idea where the numbers were coming from. I was not told of the magnitude of this error, just that she had made one. I was then instructed that I would not say anything at the news conference, and was actually surprised when I was asked questions by reporters."
