>Some Saw This Coming

>Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus’ decision to “go it alone” in her collection and maintenance of election results had county officials raising a red flag about the integrity of her system last year.  How about we take a look at what people were saying long before anyone was concerned about Scott Walker or had even heard of JoAnne Kloppenburg.   Here are some Milwaukee Journal Sentinel readers’ concerns from BACK IN AUGUST 2010 regarding Kathy’s ‘lil Computer Kingdom:

“What happens if the clerk’s office is damaged by flood, tornado, fire or whatever. What happens if the computers in her office and the backups are destroyed or damaged beyond repair? What assures us that people in her office cannot tamper with results?” [emphasis added, although hardly needed :-] -WG

“This is a trainwreck waiting to happen and has possibly already happened. The clerk is being unaccountable and should be investigated and sent packing!” -Takenforgranted

“She is running a rogue department and taking huge chances with election data. The County Board should demand an immediate audit and publish the findings on its web site. If there are any glitches in the system she should be thoroughly investigated for potential fraud. Who does she think she is” -OutspokenReader

Interestingly, and frighteningly, prescient I’d say, wouldn’t you?
