Election night polls are closed and instead of returning important election results to the County for release to the media, a municipal clerk decides to go to another municipality to "waste time". She then shows up almost 4 hours after the polls are closed, delaying the release to the media. Whenasked if there were any complications, she states, "Returning the results to the County was not my priority".
After being questioned further, this municipal clerk said she was finishing absentee ballots and that was the reason for her delay. After reviewing the poll book, it was evidenced that only 5 absentee ballots were processed after the last person voted in person.
Now, move to the next day, when, by law, all election supplies must be ruturned to the County Clerk by 4 p.m. This clerk did not comply with the requirement for nearly 2 weeks...and only after repeated requests! In addition, this clerk has had a formal complaint filed with the GAB for improper documentation while working in another municipality.
You may be asking, "Who is this candidate?"It is Kathy Karalewitz, running for the position of County Clerk of Waukesha County. What I find amusing is her tag line states "Restoring the trust and integrity to our elections". Really? Based on her past experiences, there is a huge lack of integrity. And with lack of integrity, there is a lack of trust.
