...and speaking as someone who's actually had professional acting training: Kathy Nikolaus, the county clerk of Waukesha who claims an improper vote count in the State Supreme Court race between Prosser and Kloppenburg(the latter having won, by a slim margin of less than 300 votes, as of last night), who is claiming a whole town's votes went uncounted because she forgot to hit "save"(I seem to recall one Rose Mary Woods trying a similar explanation), in my opinion, is lying through her teeth, and not very comfortable with it either. Watch her in this piece, the way she sways side to side, touches her hair. Listen to the broken, impatient, almost pre-emptively defensive flow of her voice. These are tells. She is lying. There are dirty tricks afoot in this race that the Republicans are playing. I'd bet money to this effect.
P.S. And as a reader from Ohio points out correctly, MS Access saves automatically, so she's definitely lying about not pressing "save."
