Sham election investigation finally comes to an end



It is being called one of the most blatant misappropriations of tax dollars in Wisconsin history. That is saying something. But that is what critics are calling the sham investigation into the state’s 2020 presidential election which has finally come to an end. Former Supreme Court justice Michael Gableman was hired to investigate alleged improprieties in the 2020 election. It was a joke from start to finish, with no evidence of fraud found, yet was overdue and significantly over budget. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos hired Gableman, presumably to appease Donald Trump, essentially giving Gableman a blank check. The cost of the investigation to taxpayers has topped $1 million, and taxpayers could be on the hook for another quarter million in legal fees related to the case. What a waste. Now democrats in Madison are calling for an audit into the investigation, to find out just how all that money was wasted. Vos deserves credit for finally firing Gableman, and resisting calls to decertify the election. But let’s not heap too much praise on the Assembly leader. He only took the step after being personally insulted when Gableman, who gladly cashed Vos’s checks, endorsed Vos’s opponent in the primary. It took a personal affront, rather than months of wasting the taxpayer’s dime for Vos to act. But it is good this investigation has finally ended and that we can finally move on from the false claims that the 2020 election was rigged.

    So it’s only a shame investigation when conservatives are doing it, but when democrats do one it’s OK and money is no object…its becoming perfectly clear the last presidential election was stolden, and the democrats are making plans to do the same agaon….STOLDEN ELECTIONS HAVE BAD CONSEQUENCES EVEN FOR THE NON ELITIST DEMOCRATS THAT VOTED FOR THEIR CRIMINAL DEMOCRAT OVERLORDS.

    I do not understand the Republican Party at all in this state.
    Having said , it is morally reprehensible of a party so eager to back a white supremacist and racist in Margaret Sanger and firmly believe that it is perfectly acceptable to murder children.
    Thus, I have no party in the state of Wisconsin that Ican support.

    Hey Robert, I heard the La Crosse City Council is cancelling the new roundabout planned for Cass and 23rd St. and donating the money saved to the WI Election Commission! Please stop crying.
