Wisconsin Republicans are well-represented by dumb as a rock RoJo (and yes, I apologize to rocks everywhere):
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republicans who control the Wisconsin Legislature are seeking approval to spend up to $680,000 in taxpayer money on an investigation into the 2020 presidential election in the battleground state won by President Joe Biden.
The Assembly Organization Committee, controlled by Republicans, circulated a ballot on Friday to approve designating former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman as special counsel to lead the investigation, assist the Assembly Elections Committee and hire investigators and others as needed.
So… they are hiring one of their own to conduct their sham investigation instead of hiring an expert like, oh, the Cyber Ninnies. Gotta keep those sweet, sweet taxpayer Ameros in-house, after all.
What other surprises do the WI GQP have up their sleeves?
The expenses were not specified, but Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, who ordered the probe, said in an interview that the contract with Gableman will be for up to $680,000 for the entire investigation. The committee will vote on the spending by Monday without holding a public hearing.
This is going to be a griftopia. Let’s keep an eye on this. I hope we can convince Scissorhead Zombie Rotten McDonald to be our on/under the ground reporter for this.
