MADISON — While liberals and the liberal mainstream media attack efforts to investigate the many questionable activities surrounding the 2020 presidential election, they also continue to champion government efforts to block the public’s right to know.
The question remains: what do they have to hide?
State Rep. Janel Brandtjen, chair of the Assembly’s Committee on Campaigns and Elections, notes it’s been nearly a year since the creation of the Office of Special Counsel to investigate the concerns surrounding the election.
“The investigation has been stalled because officials in (D)emocratic cities have not been cooperating,” the Menomonee Falls Republican said in a press release.
To date, only one subpoenaed party has appeared before the Office of Special Counsel.
We already know how deeply embedded liberal activist groups funded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg were in Wisconsin election administration, particularly in the state’s five largest, Democrat-heavy cities. We know that a state audit and other investigations have found the Wisconsin Elections Commission and local elections officials manipulated or broke Wisconsin election law — from guidance on indefinitely confined voters and special voting deputies to ballot “curing” and harvesting.
Wisconsin liberal Attorney General Josh Kaul and local government attorneys have spent a lot of taxpayer time and money in court trying to block election-related subpoenas issued in Madison, Milwaukee and Green Bay.
Elections officials also have thumbed their noses at open records requests, refusing to release tens of thousands of election records.
Meanwhile, Gov. Tony Evers has vetoed just about every election integrity reform bill that has landed on his desk.
No wonder so many Wisconsin voters have so many concerns about the integrity of elections.
“If this was the most fair and transparent election as election officials claim, why do they choose not to cooperate?” Brandtjen said of the open government resistance movement. She urged legislative leaders to keep the investigations open and demand elections officials comply with subpoenas and follow the law.
“The people of Wisconsin deserve to know to what extent the Wisconsin Elections Commission, the five mayors, and various election officials, acted outside of the law,” Brandtjen said.
