Don’t extend partisan election investigation again



When will it end? A partisan investigation into the 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin was begun last year at taxpayer expense. The search for fraud was supposed to come to an end in October. It was then extended to the end of the year, then to the end of January, and later to the end of February. Now legislative leaders are considering extending the deadline again, and giving the head of the investigation more power. That would be a mistake. This unnecessary investigation has already cost Wisconsin taxpayers three-quarters of a million dollars. We shouldn’t spend another dime on this. We’ve already spent more than enough. This search for what doesn’t exist has been bungled from the start. Former Supreme Court justice Michael Gableman already admitted he doesn’t understand how elections work, making him a strange choice to head this effort. He subpoenaed Dominion voting machines from Madison and Green Bay, even though neither city uses Dominion voting machines. He asked both cities for information about voters, which could include personal information including birth dates, street addresses and driver’s license numbers. This investigation should come to an end, not be extended, and we shouldn’t be giving those leading the investigation a blank check at taxpayer expense.
