Scott Walker Recall: County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus Hands Off Election Duties To Deputy

Posted: Updated:

It's two strikes and out for Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus, whose latest Election Day pickle led County Executive Dan Vrakas to relieve her of her duties for the historic recall elections in May and June.

According to a statement released Thursday from the County Executive's Office, Vrakas posed an ultimatum to Nickolaus in an effort to restore confidence in the upcoming election: Either resign as clerk or she designate her Election Day duties to the deputy clerk.

Nickolaus chose the latter.

"Kathy agreed to hand off her election duties to the deputy county clerk in order to avoid my public call for her resignation," Vrakas said. "In stepping aside, Kathy also agreed to allow outside consultants and county staff to work side-by-side with the deputy clerk to help restore confidence in our election process."
