The Wisconsin Supreme Court election that could affect a contentious union-rights law just got even messier.

“I am 80 years old and I don’t understand anything about computers,” the statement quoted Ms. Kitzinger as saying. “It wasn’t even until the press conference was happening that I learned it was this enormous mistake that could swing the whole election.” Ms. Nickolaus has apologized for losing nearly 15,000 election ballots and chalked it up to human error.
