The Republican-majority Wisconsin Assembly passed a resolution Tuesday to investigate the 2020 election.
Adopted 58-35 along party lines, it gives investigators subpoena power to compel testimony and gather documents, the Associated Press reported.
The investigation would be done by the elections and campaign committee, said Rep. Joe Sanfelippo, the vice-chairman.
Joe Biden defeated President Trump by fewer than 21, 000 votes.
The Gateway Pundit noted Trump had a sizable lead in Wisconsin on election night when Democratic election officials stopped counting ballots. The next morning, after “ballot dumps” in the middle of the night, Biden had the lead.
“Joe Biden somehow outperformed Barack Obama’s 2008 performance and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 numbers in Milwaukee County despite the Census Bureau’s data indicating the county actually shrank in the last 10 years,” the Gateway Pundit said.
“The total number of ‘indefinitely confined’ voters, or Express Votes ballots for individuals with disabilities skyrocketed from around 60,000 in 2016 to over 240,000 in 2020. No photo ID is required in Wisconsin for indefinitely confined voters. Nor do we know if they were filled out and presented properly with all the required proof needed to vote. In addition to the IC ballots, the observers in Dane County found thousands of ballots with the initials ‘MLW’ on them. We don’t know if these ballots were completed correctly or not as well. But like the IC ballots, these ballots were in pristine condition and had no creases on them. They could not have been mailed in during the election.”
The Daily Signal reported Wisconsin was one of the states where Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg donated funds to election offices to “bolster democracy during the pandemic.”
“But what the grant money really purchased in battleground states such as Wisconsin was infiltration of the November presidential elections by liberal groups and Democratic activists, according to hundreds of pages of emails and other documents obtained by Wisconsin Spotlight.”
The report explained that in Green Bay, which received a total of $1.6 million in grant funding from the Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life, a “grant mentor” who has worked for several Democratic Party candidates was given access to boxes of absentee ballots before the election.
The report said Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein, Wisconsin state leader for the National Vote at Home Institute, in many ways became the de facto city elections chief.
The evidence showed that Green Bay’s highly partisan Mayor Eric Genrich, a Democrat, and his staff usurped City Clerk Kris Teske’s authority and let the Zuckerberg-funded “grant team” take over, a clear violation of Wisconsin election statutes.
It was part of an effort by liberal groups to improperly insert themselves into the election system and coordinate with what became known as the “Wisconsin 5,” the state’s five largest communities that split more than $6 million in Zuckerberg money, the report said.
The five localities were given $6.3 million from the organization that distributed Zuckerberg’s money.
The Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society investigated election irregularities. The group had presented to the Wisconsin Supreme Court information about 150,000 “potentially fraudulent ballots,” but the court didn’t take the case.
Amistand Project director Phill Kline said the problems “were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law.”
“One of the most impactful violations involved election officials brazenly defying state laws designed to ensure the integrity of absentee ballots, specifically provisions requiring voters to present photo identification when requesting an absentee ballot,” the organization said. “The only exceptions to this requirement outlined in law apply to voters who are either ‘hospitalized’ or ‘indefinitely confined because of age, physical illness, or infirmity.”
But “local election officials unilaterally interpreted the ‘indefinitely confined’ exemption to apply to persons suffering from COVID-19, and the Wisconsin Election Commission exceeded its statutory authority by issuing ‘guidance’ instructing election clerks not to reject voters who cite the exemption, even if the officials have knowledge that the individuals in question are no longer indefinitely confined,” the organization said.
