Wisconsin Assembly Orders Investigation of 2020 Presidential Election Results
State assembly passes resolution to authorize probe into race narrowly won by Biden
The Wisconsin state assembly has ordered an investigation into the 2020 presidential election results amid allegations that laws were broken during the vote count, according to reports.
On Tuesday, the Republican-controlled assembly voted to pass a resolution to authorize the probe.
The resolution received overwhelming support, passing on a 58-35 party-line vote.
After passing the resolution, the state's elections and campaign committee will now have subpoena power.
Committee officials can use the powers to compel testimony and gather documents during their investigations.
The probe will investigate alleged voting irregularities in the battleground state narrowly won by Joe Biden.
The resolution, opposed by Democrats, is needed to give the committee authorization to conduct a deep dive into the results, said Republican Rep. Joe Sanfelippo.
Sanfelippo is the vice-chairman of the Assembly elections and campaign committee that would conduct the probe, according to The Associated Press.
The resolution authorizing the investigation passed on a party-line vote, with all Republicans in support and all Democrats against it.
It passed after Republicans last month ordered an audit of the election results.
Republicans said they wanted to gather more evidence to see if laws were broken, but Democrats said they were trying to score political points, undermining the public’s faith in elections and insulting election clerks, poll workers, and others who ran the election.
Allegations of voter fraud emerged after President Donald Trump took a sizeable lead on election night, only for Joe Biden to suddenly surge ahead by the next morning.
Biden somehow outperformed Barack Obama’s 2008 performance and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 numbers in Milwaukee County despite the Census Bureau’s data indicating the county actually shrank in the last 10 years.
Democrat Biden ended up winning Wisconsin by 21,000 votes.
The 2020 election saw a rise in the number of “indefinitely confined” voters who can vote without IDs, according to The Gateway Pundit.
The total number of “indefinitely confined” voters, or Express Votes ballots for individuals with disabilities skyrocketed from around 60,000 in 2016 to over 240,000 in 2020.
No photo ID is required in Wisconsin for indefinitely confined voters.
It is currently not known whether ballots were correctly filled out and presented properly with all the required proof needed to vote.
In addition to the IC ballots, the observers in Dane County found thousands of ballots with the initials "MLW" on them.
We don’t know if these ballots were completed correctly or not as well.
But like the IC ballots, these ballots were in pristine condition and had no creases on them, suggesting they could not have been mailed in during the election.
According to Madison, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he wanted to proceed with the investigation into the 2020 election, "which would be more public than the audit, to see if any other issues are raised that need to be considered."
