Madison, Wis. (Learfield) - State Supreme Court Justice David Prosser and his advisors say a recount of the April fifth election ballots would be expensive and frivolous. Prosser told reporters today that his opponent JoAnne Kloppenburg ran an effective campaign. But now that all 72 counties have canvassed their ballots, he said the result is no longer in doubt. The canvass showed Prosser with a 73-hundred-16 vote lead over Kloppenburg – and the margin is close enough to let Kloppenburg have a tax-funded recount. But Prosser campaign attorney James Troupis said he would take any step to quote, “prevent this frivolous matter going forward.” He did not explain how that might happen. Kloppenburg won the Election Night tally by 204 votes, but Prosser jumped out in front after it was learned that Brookfield’s votes were not included in that figure. A former Prosser aide in the Legislature, Brian Schimming, said there’s no way Kloppenburg could find seven-thousand votes – and trying to do so would be tremendously expensive for taxpayers. Kloppenburg has until Wednesday to decide on a recount. Her camp did not immediately comment on Prosser’s news briefing.
