The Racine County Sheriff’s Office announced during their press conference on Thursday that they are submitting their investigation to the Racine District Attorney’s office following their hearing today.
The Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) violated state law in a statewide nursing home voting scam. The WEC did not follow the law.
The Wisconsin Election Commission took advantage of impaired seniors. The Racine Sheriffs believe this crime occurred in all 72 counties.
The Racine County Sheriff’s Department believes the WEC committed a Class I Felony and numerous misdemeanors by abusing impaired seniors to get their votes.
Following the Racine Sheriff’s press conference the Wisconsin Elections Commission announced an emergency meeting on Thursday night.
The Journal Times reported:
The Wisconsin Elections Commission is planning an emergency meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, about seven hours after the Racine County Sheriff’s Office began detailing allegations of alleged election fraud at a Mount Pleasant nursing home.
The RCSO alleged that fraud was committed at Ridgewood Care Center in Mount Pleasant, where eight people who had lost significant cognitive ability still cast ballots that were allegedly filled out by staff, because of policies the WEC approved that the RCSO alleges broke state election law.
The WEC has maintained that the changes it approved during the COVID-19 pandemic were OK, primarily regarding how Special Voting Deputies were no longer required to go into nursing homes to help people who wanted to vote cast ballots while also preventing fraudulent ballots from being cast; and how staff members of the nursing home assisted residents in filling out ballots, which is against state law.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, called for WEC Administrator Meagan Wolfe to resign following the RCSO’s allegations.
