As I See It

Those hoping to find election fraud can’t seem to separate fact from fiction



What a waste. There is word that the investigation into the 2020 election in Wisconsin just got a whole lot pricier. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos hired some retired detectives and a former judge to ensure the election was on the up and up. Now we’re learning that the cost of that investigation will be $680,000. That is nine times the original estimate. That word came from former state and national Republican party boss Reince Priebus when he spoke on a podcast hosted by the disgraced former advisor to President Trump, Steve Bannon. But can we believe that figure? Hard to say, given all the other inaccuracies in that podcast. Bannon remarked that in Wisconsin there are no mail-in ballots, and limited to no early voting. Both are inaccurate. Wisconsin has allowed early in-person voting since 2002. Priebus called the election in Milwaukee “a total and complete disaster.” But in fact a recount of ballots there found no fraud, and no change in outcome. Priebus also called ballot drop boxes like those outside La Crosse City Hall illegal, even though the courts have repeatedly said they are legal. It is concerning that those determined to find some wrongs in the recent election don’t seem to know what right is.
