Smiling Poop Emojis Replace Election Recount Talk in Wisconsin

The conversation has turned from election recounts to poop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

To be precise, they’re actually talking about smiling poop emojis found on wristbands given to election observers in the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee, who are there to watch over ballot recounts.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the observers are given bands every day to show they’ve passed a health screening. On previous days, the wristbands had featured things like “VIP” in purple or gold lettering.

But on Tuesday, you might say that was all flushed away. For just a bit, the discussion turned away from who might finish first to why number two was featured on that day’s wristbands.

“A recount volunteer says she and others were forced to wear these bracelets to participate in recount,” Vicki McKenna, a local radio talk show host tweeted. “Staff, attorneys and volunteers all wearing them. Do these people NOT take elections seriously?”

But Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said it was no big deal.

“I always thought it was chocolate ice cream, personally,” Christenson is quoted in the Journal Sentinel. “Wisconsin Center is our vendor. They handle the logistics. They are probably just pulling what they have in stock, because this is the first opportunity they’ve had to be open in quite some time due to this pandemic. So again, it’s a non-issue.”

And Reid Magney, a spokesman for the Wisconsin Elections Commission, told the New York Post: “My understanding is that the Wisconsin Center used whatever wristbands they had in their inventory. Each day they use a different wristband.”
