As I See It

No do-overs for Wisconsin election



If you can’t win the game, change the rules. That seems to be the philosophy of some in Wisconsin upset at the outcome of last week’s election. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos is calling for an investigation into the election and how it was administered. That of course is an insult to Wisconsin’s 72 county clerks who worked tirelessly to ensure the counting of ballots was accurate. Now, the member of the state Assembly Vos has charged with leading the investigation has a novel idea for how to settle things fair and square. Rep. Joe Sanfelippo, who says he doesn’t trust the election process or the outcome of the election, thinks Wisconsin’s 10 electoral college voters should be able to cast their ballots for either Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Fortunately, they can’t. Electors are legally bound to vote for the candidate who received the most votes in the state. In Wisconsin, that was Joe Biden. Sanfelippo even suggests the results of last Tuesday’s election be nullified, and a new election ordered. Short of that, he wants Wisconsin electors to be able to vote for who they think should have won. There is no reason to muddy the waters. Joe Biden won Wisconsin. Claims of some sort of voter fraud or some other irregularities are baseless and unproven. We shouldn’t be using public money for some sort of political witch hunt seeking to change the outcome of an election which had a clear winner, even if some don’t want to believe it.

      Quite a bit of evidence that there were irregularities with the election in several states. Lets let the legal process run its course so we can be sure about the integrity of the election.
