The Double Standard of the Liberals In All Its Glaring Hypocricy

The recount battle for the Supreme Court election in Wisconsin just took a interesting twist. The lawyer for Joanne Kloppenburg insisted that the votes of 18 cloisterd Catholic Nuns be tossed out on a technicallity that has almost never been enforced in the past.

Remember it is the Liberals who are constantly screaming in opposition to any requirements like a simple ID to prove you are who you are. They claim they want to be sure everyone can have his or her vote. But I guess that doesn't extent to Cloistered Nuns. But then given how often they have done all they can to make it harder for military personnel overseas to vote, this should be no surprize. They only care when the vote goes their way. & in this case it didn't. (H/T Matt K @ The Badger Catholic)

NOTE: I say liberal in this case because the Supreme Court election is technically non-partisan. But since liberal & Democrat are usually interchangable & this is the same state where the Dems cut out rather than vote for the changes the governor wanted, this shows even more that it isn't about a fair election, just them taking power to force their agenda down our throats.)

Appalling: Joanne Kloppenburg throws out ballots of cloistered nuns in recount effort
An email to Milwaukee radio host Charlie Sykes:
In Sauk County, there’s a convent, Valley of our Lady Monastery that is inhabited by 18 Cistercian nuns. [They are good nuns btw](added by Badger Catholic) These nuns take a vow of silence, with their main occupation being the making the communion wafers. I am not making this up, the website couldn’t be better: The majority of these nuns stay at the Monastery their entire life…living the simplest of simple lives.

Every election the Town of Sumpter Clerk, Donna Ziegler, drops off 18 ballots so the nuns can vote. She later picks them up, prior to the election in a single, large, sealed envelope—not opening the large envelope prior to the election.

This year, she opened the large enveloped and removed the ballots…counted them, and included them as part of the total 24 absentee ballots for the town.

Fast forward to the recount….last Friday it was discovered that the absentee ballots cast by the nuns didn’t include witness signatures…and no one noticed prior to the election. The Kloppenburg team argued that the ballots should be thrown out—never mind that the GAB has never enforced lack of witness signature as grounds for throwing out a ballot with any regularity—and was successful.

Yesterday, the canvas board reconsidered—bringing in the Town Clerk (Ziegler) to discuss the situation, and she very passionately objected to the dismissal—stating she knows these women, trusts them and has always handled the nun’s absentee ballots the same way. Again, the canvas board after a long and somewhat contentious conversation voted to reject the ballots—at the insistence of the Kloppenburg attorney.

They were forced to “draw down” among the 24 absentee ballots, and Prosser lost 14 while Klopp lost 4.

It is my understanding that the canvasing board may have “seen the light” and was going to possibly review the decision once again this morning. I have not heard if they’ve reversed the decision.

This is why Kloppenburg’s goons justify a million dollar (plus) recount…to make sure the votes of nuns are counted.

In other words, she had them thrown out because of the fact they are cloistered nuns.
