Wisconsin's election probe zeroes in on Democrat machine tactics, rule changes

Just the News

Move over Arizona and hold on Pennsylvania, the next election integrity investigation to take center stage is occurring in Wisconsin, where a former state Supreme Court justice empowered by the Legislature to compel testimony and document production is gathering steam


Interviews with more than a dozen witnesses, officials and lawyers who have interacted with retired Justice Mike Gableman and his staff suggest a strong focus on the role election bureaucracies played in changing the rules — without legislative consent — for how ballots were sent out, filled out, collected and counted.  

Gableman's early investigative work as special counsel appointed by Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos is shining a spotlight among other things on the Wisconsin Election Commission, a statewide body created by GOP lawmakers after an earlier political rigging scandal in the state known as the John Doe investigations. The commission provides guidance and rules to the 1,852 election clerks in the state on how to conduct voting.

The commission in 2020 altered numerous state voting rules and procedures during the pandemic, often without seeking legislative permission. The changes range from allowing nursing home staff to help fill out resident ballots to giving permission to election clerks to fill out missing witness information required for absentee ballots.:snip:

Rep. Brandtjen: Gableman investigation does not speak for all


Rep. Janel Brandtjen, R-Menomonee Falls, on Monday released a statement saying she opposes any deals with the mayors of the so-called Wisconsin Five, and is not a part of former Supreme Court Justice Mike Gableman’s investigation.

“The current subpoenas have not been approved by the Assembly’s Campaigns and Elections Committee,” Brandtjen wrote. “I do not approve of the current list of subpoenas to the five Wisconsin Mayors, as this provides immunity to them in any trial or criminal proceedings.”

Brandtjen has been running her own investigation through her committee since January. She too is focusing on the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life. And she too wants answers from the mayors of Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Racine, and Kenosha.

“Mayor [Eric] Genrich of Green Bay allowed a non-profit group to operate central count, provided this non-profit group keys to central count, and issued a city ID to a partisan operative from New York,” Brandtjen explained. “He has committed dereliction of duty and should be held accountable. Providing him immunity after all the time it has taken to uncover his actions will not serve justice.”:snip:

Former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch Sues Wisconsin Elections Commission For Flagrantly Breaking The Law

Kylee Zempel

November 15, 2021

Wisconsin’s former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch filed a lawsuit with the state Supreme Court on Monday against the Wisconsin Elections Commission for breaking state laws in the 2020 cycle.

In her lawsuit, Kleefisch, a Republican running for governor next year, asked the court to declare that the elections commission’s guidance is against state law and enjoin the commission to carry out a lawful election in 2022. She requested that the Supreme Court take up jurisdiction so the lawsuit doesn’t get tangled up in the lower courts and stalled during next year’s election.

“We need to make sure that the law-breaking we saw happen in 2020 never happens again in Wisconsin,” Kleefisch told The Federalist. “This is about forcing the Wisconsin Elections Commission to clean up their act and provide clear, law-abiding plans for how to implement the 2022 elections.”

The lawsuit follows the Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau finding numerous times when the elections commission clearly broke state law, including with unattended ballot drop boxes, closed polling locations, and special voting deputies being banned from nursing homes.

Election Fraud Investigators Blanket State with Surprise Subpoenas

The investigation into Wisconsin’s elections is still ongoing as special counsel Michael Gableman continues looking into how voting in the state was carried out in the 2020 general election.

Gableman is now issuing about 70 subpoenas to state entities and employees, special interest groups, private companies, mayoral staffers and IT departments, throughout Wisconsin to obtain records, depositions and more information on the election process and organizations that seem to have had a hand in the administration of elections.

Gableman, who was previously a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, was asked by Speaker of the Wisconsin state Assembly Robin Vos to lead an investigation into the 2020 election in the state. Gableman agreed and was appointed as special counsel.:snip:

Obviously Michael Gableman is a Neo- Nazi

I Quote Wikipedia (font of all wisdom & knowledge)

"A *Republican, Gableman has been called a "hard-line conservative."[2]

During a November 7, 2020 speech at a Trump rally in Milwaukee four days after the election, Gableman said "I don't think anyone here can think of anything more systematically unjust than a stolen election."


* It is a well know fact (in better circles) that Republicans if not Actual Neo-Nazis are the natural inheritor of Nazi Ideology.

Judge lets Republican-led election review proceed in Wisconsin

A Wisconsin judge ruled on Monday that a Republican-led election review in the Badger State can proceed after the state’s Democratic attorney general sought to end the probe.

The ruling relates to an investigation led by former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, a Republican, which is reviewing the state’s results from the 2020 presidential election.

President Biden won Wisconsin’s 10 Electoral College votes by just over 20,000 votes, which equates to less than one percentage point.
