April 11, 2011- Government Accountability Board and Milwaukee County District Attorney to hold news conference on election results

There should be more details as the story develops.

MADISON, Wis. – The Milwaukee County District Attorney and the group in charge of overseeing Wisconsin’s elections are expected to make an announcement about a major investigation.

The Government Accountability Board and Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office will hold a news conference Monday afternoon in Madison to discuss the results of what they call a “significant investigation.”

GAB spokesman Reid Magney only would say it’s separate from the issues in Waukesha County, where the county clerk failed to report more than 14,000 votes on election night to the media. The mistake gave Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser a roughly 7,500 vote lead over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg. It had been neck and neck and apparently headed for a recount.
