Did Richard Gilbert get Wisconsin to change their law?

Richard Gilbert pats himself on the back and claims Wisconsin as a big victory. He quotes a portion of a Wisconsin law and then says that he got Wisconsin to accept a Ron Paul write-in. He quotes this portion of a Wisconsin law as evidence:

8.185(2)
(2) Any candidates for the office of president and vice president of the United States as write-in candidates shall file a list of presidential electors and a declaration of candidacy in the manner prescribed in s. 8.21 with the board no later than 4:30 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday preceding the day of the general election to choose the president and vice president of the United States.

You might want to read 8.185(2) in its entirety. It includes this:

"Compliance with this subsection may be waived by the board but only if the results of the general election indicate that a write-in candidate for the office of president is eligible to receive the electoral votes of this state except for noncompliance with this subsection. In such event, the write-in candidate shall have until 4:30 p.m. on the Friday following the general election to comply with the filing requirements of this subsection."

No big change in Wisconsin, no magic. This was already in the Wisconsin law.

Read the entire law 8.185(2)
