|Finally!! Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus, the elections official who lost and then found more than 14,000 votes during a high profile state supreme court race last year, gave up her official vote counting duties for the upcoming Wisconsin recall election. As a statement by County Executive Dan Vrakas makes clear, this decision was not entirely voluntary. 'In a meeting this afternoon I presented two options to Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus,' Vrakas explained, 'resignation, or designating the Deputy Clerk to run the upcoming recall election.' Vrakas presented this choice to Nickolaus after she botched yet another vote count during this week's primary election.|
