The Racine County Sheriff’s Office announced during their press conference one week ago on Thursday that they were submitting their investigation to the Racine District Attorney’s office following their hearing.
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.
On Wednesday Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling announced criminal charges against five of the six members of the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC).
The Washington Examiner reported:
Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling announced in a news release Wednesday that he had referred recommendations for criminal charges against five of the six members of the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) to Racine County District Attorney Patricia Hanson, a Republican.
Last week, Schmaling called a news conference to lay out allegations of election fraud against the commissioners but said he hadn’t sent the investigation to the DA and was instead calling for a statewide investigation into the matter from Attorney General Josh Kaul. After Kaul declined to open an investigation, Schmaling sent his recommendations, which include felony charges.
Schmaling and his investigator allege that when the WEC voted unanimously in Spring 2020 not to send special voting deputies (SVDs) into nursing home facilities because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they’d broken the law. SVDs are pairs of people appointed by local election clerks to go to nursing homes to assist with voting. At the time of the unanimous vote, visitors weren’t being allowed into nursing homes to protect residents from the virus so the WEC voted to forgo the two visits SVDs are required to attempt to make to nursing homes and instead use the normal absentee ballot process.
On November 4th Sheriff Schmaling referred recommendations for criminal charges against five of the six commission members. The referral has gone to Racine County District Attorney Patricia Hanson, and does not mean that charges will, in fact, be filed.
Constant Contact reported:
The Wisconsin Examiner reported that the commissioners apparently broke state law by preventing special voting deputies from entering nursing homes to help people vote. Instead, officials or workers in the homes helped. And sometimes might have even voted for residents, since a review by Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling confirmed that relatives told his investigators some of the residents did not have the cognitive ability to vote, but did.
