(The Center Square) – A Wisconsin Republican calls for concluding last year’s election investigation.
Senator Kathy Bernier, R-Chippewa Falls, told State House reporters on Monday that there was no evidence of fraud, that the 2020 election was safe and secure, and that ongoing investigations into the last year’s votes were nothing more than politics.
“[The investigation] continues to cheer up people who think they know what they’re talking about, and they don’t, âsaid Berneier. âMy advice would be for Mr. Gablemen to end as soon as possible. Because the longer we keep this going, the more harm we’re going to hurt Republicans. “
Bernier is the most prominent Republican lawmaker to speak out against Gableman’s investigation.
On Monday, she was joined by out-of-state attorneys Bob Bauer and Ben Ginsberg, as well as the Center for Election Innovation & Research in criticizing Gableman’s investigation.
Bauer said the Wisconsin election investigation is very similar to the Arizona election audit which also found no evidence of widespread fraud in 2020.
“[This is] an example of what we have seen in other states of pseudo-audits organized for partisan political purposes for those who cannot afford to meet any standard, currently prescribed by law, âexplained Bauer.
Gableman focuses on the so-called Zuckerbucks. The $ 8.8 million that went to Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Racine and Kenosha.
The Wisconsin Election Commission said last week this money is not technically illegal under Wisconsin law.
Bauer and CEIR say Wisconsin lawmakers may make these kinds of donations illegal in the future, but there is nothing they can do about what happened last year.
Gableman has said for months that he is not looking to overturn the 2020 election. He just says he wants to know what happened, and see if there are any changes to be made by 2022 or 2024.
