Electing incompetent Republicans has a price

In Waukesha County folks are finding out that electing incompetent Republicans has a price … quite literally.

“A consultant’s report traces problems in reporting Waukesha County election results directly to mistakes by outgoing County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus – mistakes that will cost county taxpayers more than a quarter of a million dollars to fix.

“Nickolaus had promised to post timely results online and update them periodically for the April 3 election.
