Official: 'Thousands of Prosser Votes Unaccounted For'

In a dramatic shift in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, it is now being reported that large amounts of votes for incumbent David Prosser have been mysteriously unaccounted for.  In a race deadlocked with a differential of less than 100 votes out of over a million total, this could be huge.

A local Wisconsin news site quotes an election reporter as saying:
"[S]everal thousand votes are currently unaccounted for and that the majority of them will end up going to David Prosser.  We're not talking a couple hundred.  We're not even talking a couple thousand.  I have been told and confirmed through multiple sources that this is several thousand votes and it will completely and obviously change the dynamic."
Most likely this will not only cause Prosser to take a commanding lead, but almost certainly an insurmountable one.
This news must arrive to the chagrin of challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, who declared victory and called on David Prosser to concede yesterday.  In her statement, she said, in part:
“Wisconsin voters have spoken... I will be independent and impartial and I will decide cases based on the facts and the law. As I have traveled the state, people tell me they believe partisan politics do not belong in our courts. I look forward to bringing new blood to the Supreme Court and focusing my energy on the important work Wisconsin residents elect Supreme Court justices to do.”
A press conference is scheduled concerning the race at 6:30EST.  It could be the announcement of Prosser gaining votes.

And just for laughs, here is the video of Kloppenburg declaring victory:
