Top Wisconsin GOP lawmaker hires retired police to probe 2020 election

Source: CNN

The top Republican in Wisconsin's state Assembly is hiring retired police officers to investigate November's election, joining a growing list of presidential battlegrounds where GOP state officials are looking for evidence to support former President Donald Trump's lies about widespread voter fraud.

State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he is hiring three former police officers and an attorney to work as contractors for the state legislature. The group will have subpoena power and its investigation will be taxpayer-funded. It is expected to produce a report with its findings by the fall, Vos told the newspaper.

He said the group will investigate tips about voter fraud or election problems. Among the topics he said the group could examine: $6.3 million in private grant funding to help Wisconsin cities run last year's election, claims of double-voting and the ways clerks fixed absentee ballot credentials.

Ann Jacobs, the chair of Wisconsin's Elections Commission, said the move by Vos "could undermine confidence in an election that was conducted properly."

3. So the GOP tries their own version of voter fraud, supposedly under the guise of 'investigations'...

Yeah, right. I hope that the powers that be look closely at the results of these so called experts, for ironically, voter fraud in dumping so called questionable ballots (in their minds only, no one else), if they try to manipulate or throw away perfectly good ballots, voter fraud should be charged.
