Last week I visited Lilydale’s to listen to former WI Supreme Court Justice Mike Gableman speak about the November 2020 election investigation that he is heading. He spoke about the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC); the $500 million Zuckerburg money that was funneled through certain organizations into five major WI cities; what that money was spent on; that WEC broke the law by telling nursing homes that they did not have to use trained Special Voting Agents to help their residents vote (that their employees could help the residents vote instead) and the voting machines.
The six member board of WEC was established in 2016; replacing the (short-lived) Wisconsin Government Accountability Board. Before that the WI Sec. of State was in charge of elections.
Wisconsin has 5.5 million residents, 4 million eligible voters and yet there are 7 million names on the state voter register. It is illogical for people who have moved or who have died to still be on the voter role. Why can’t that list of inactive names be archived in a separate file?
So far Gableman hasn’t seen any fraud involving the voting machines but he hasn’t done any forensic audit on the machines either, due to a lack of funding.
Besides the nursing home issue, WEC did not allow the Green Party Candidate on the ballot. There was no public hearing to deal with this nor did WEC allow that candidate’s lawyer to speak at the WEC meeting when the board voted on it. WEC’s board members are appointed. They are not elected officials and cannot be removed once they are appointed on the board. WEC needs to be seriously reformed. I have heard from other sources that there is no way for the legislature to hold WEC accountable other than to defund them. Not sure about that.
