The report of the investigation into the 2020 election in Wisconsin was released Tuesday, with a claim of potential decertification.
Special Counsel Michael Gableman presented the report to the Assembly, arguing that the legislature should seriously consider decertification.
“At this point, I believe the legislature ought to take a very hard look at the option of decertification of the 2020 Wisconsin presidential election,” the former Supreme Court Justice said.
The last six pages of the document, which is 136 pages, argue that the U.S. Constitution allows for decertification to happen.
“Wisconsin election law does not explicitly authorize the decertification of electors. But neither does it prevent it,” the report says. It also claims that the violations of Wisconsin election law “did or likely could have affected the outcome of the election”.
Among the eight items referred to as “unlawful conduct and irregularities” is “The Center for Tech and Civic Life’s $8,800,000 Zuckerberg Plan Grants being run in the Cities of Milwaukee, Madison, Racine, 8 Kenosha and Green Bay constituting Election Bribery Under Wis. Stat. § 12.11” and “WEC’s failing to maintain a sufficiently accurate WisVote voter database, as determined by the Legislative Audit Bureau”.
The cities that supposedly violated Election Bribery laws are called the “Zuckerberg 5,” in reference to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
The report also mentions claims from “Racine Co. Sheriff Christopher Schmaling that the Wisconsin Elections Commission did not follow the law when it did not stop poll workers from going into nursing homes,” reported NBC15.
Former president Donald Trump released a statement on the hearing, saying “Everyone who loves America should be closely following today’s vital hearing in the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Election with highly respected former Wisconsin State Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman”.
