In the end this is probably the right thing to do. But when you consider that 18 cloistered nuns had their votes discounted in 2011's Supreme Court race because they were lacking a wittness signature, this is frustrating. Hundreds of voters, perhaps enough to make a difference, didn't properly sign the supplemental voter list.
And there are other irregularities. A big part of me feels he should have pursued this, if for no other reason, than to find out what really happened at the Racine polling places. The democrats are impotent in the Senate anyway and I'm confident Republicans will get it back in January.
And I can't disagree with this:
Tuesday was the deadline to file a lawsuit, but Wanggaard said he decided against one because a challenge would not necessarily change the outcome and would be "extremely costly to taxpayers, who have already been forced to waste $20 million on the recall election" for governor, lieutenant governor and four Senate seats.
"It doesn't make sense to spend the dollars that would be necessary for the court challenges," Wanggaard said.
Still, it's frustrating.
