La Crosse GOP chair among Republicans accused of fraud over Wisconsin electoral votes

The fight over Wisconsin’s presidential vote continues, with the chair of La Crosse County Republicans and others being called “impostors” for designating themselves as electors for Donald Trump.

County GOP chair Bill Feehan is among the Republicans being targeted in a complaint to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, filed by the SEIU Wisconsin State Council.

Feehan was on the list of electors chosen to vote for Trump in the Electoral College, if the former president had carried Wisconsin in November. Since Joe Biden was declared the winner of Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes, a Democratic slate of electors took part in the December Electoral College.

The legal complaint to the elections commission says the Republicans committed fraud by gathering in Madison in December and casting their votes anyway, to have paperwork ready just in case the courts eventually ruled that Trump actually won the state.

The complainants accuse the Republicans of trying to fool election officials into thinking that they, not the Democrats, were the state’s proper electors.

The Elections Commission meets on March 2nd, and its agenda includes possible discussion of “election complaints” and a “litigation update.”
