Wisconsin Republican lawmakers moved forward on Thursday with articles of impeachment against Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe.
Wisconsin has been ground zero for several years with the highly questionable and unethical acts born out in many court cases as follows:
- Wisconsin Supreme Court rules 2020 election results are “illegitimate” because the Administrator of Elections harmed and injured voters by not following the law (click here – Drop boxes are illegal in Wisconsin, state’s high court rules : NPR).
- Court rules it’s illegal for Administrator of Elections to advise Clerks to “cure” absentee ballots in 2020 (click here – Wisconsin ruling blocks curing absentee ballots (arkansasonline.com)).
- Judge outlaws illegal voter registration form Administrator of Elections has been using for years (click here – Judge blocks Wisconsin officials from using federal voter registration form | AP News).
- Racine County Sheriff investigation shows evidence of election fraud at long-term care facilities based on advice of the Administrator of Elections (click here – Racine Co. Sheriff alleges elections commission broke the law – Wisconsin Examiner).
The Wisconsin Senate Republicans voted 22-11 on September 14th to officially, legally and statutorily remove the Administrator of Elections whose term ended on June 30, 2023.
After the Senate vote, Wolfe refused to turn in her keys to the Office and promised to stay in place indefinitely despite being fired by the Wisconsin State Senate (click here – Meagan Wolfe won’t step down as Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator (nbc15.com)).
Attorney Josh Kaul immediately filed a lawsuit in judicial liberal friendly Dane County Circuit Court asking to keep the fired Administrator of Elections (Wolfe) in place indefinitely as the Administrator’s apparent personal attorney (click here – Kaul files suit seeking order keeping Wolfe as Elections Commission administrator – WisPolitics).
Senate Republican President Kapenga (R-Delafield) finally had enough of the apparent games being played by liberal progressive democrats that apparently have no regard whatsoever for the law. The Democrats, with endless time, money and resources are holding up this process until after the 2024 election cycle in hopes of securing Wisconsin’s 10 Electoral College Votes. The fired former Administrator of Elections is breaking the law every day by refusing to turn in the office keys per State Statute 13.127 (click here – Wisconsin Legislature: 13.127).
The Wisconsin Assembly, under corrupt Speaker Robin Vos refused to impeach Wolfe – until Thursday.
After a local media campaign against Speaker Vos he folded quickly and moved forward with articles of impeachment against elections administrator Wolfe.
Channel 25 reported:
Fifteen articles of impeachment against Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe have been referred to an Assembly committee as a back-and-forth battle over the administration of the 2020 election in the state continues.
The resolution introduced Thursday lays out Republicans’ concerns about Wolfe’s handling of the 2020 election, which came amid the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes allegations that Wolfe “unlawfully promoted maladministration with the use of ballot drop boxes” and “promoted and encouraged illegal alterations of absentee ballot applications during the administration of the 2020 presidential election.”
The resolution has been referred to the Assembly Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight.
The move comes a month after Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he would not pursue impeachment of Wolfe, citing an ongoing court case about whether the Senate had the authority to vote to remove her from her role when it did so in September.
Since then, a conservative group began running ads against Vos if he didn’t move the impeachment process forward. His office told News 3 Now Thursday afternoon that that did not factor into his decision to assign the resolution to a committee.
Republican lawmakers filed articles of impeachment in September to remove Wolfe from her current post.
introduced by: Representatives BRANDTJEN, ALLEN, BEHNKE, BODDEN and WICHGERS. Referred to Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight.
The Assembly Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight includes these members.
A simple majority is all that is needed from the Assembly to send the Impeachment to the Senate
