I finally figured out what I was doing wrong.  This site pointed me to
the solution

I was using the wrong url with wget.  I was using the url which
contained the form I wanted to fill, but should have been using the
the url of the page that is processing the form data.  This can be
found in the form page code:

<form id="LoginFrm" name="LoginFrm" method="post"

The value for action= is what I needed to send the post data to with wget.
