Happy Hour News
Guys, The Terrible Cheese Kingdom of Wisconski (home of Sen. RoJo) is gonna try an audit in the style of the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan, and it’s off to a smashing start:
MADISON – Wisconsin election clerks are reacting with a mixture of concern and confusion to the first inquiry made by a special investigator hired by Republicans to examine how the 2020 presidential election was run in the battleground state…
Based on an Associated Press survey of all 72 county election clerks, the email from the lead investigator landed in the junk folders of at least seven counties and wasn’t received by at least 11 others. Several that did get it flagged it as a security risk.
The whole story is a cascade of FAIL:
The elections committee chairwoman, Rep. Janel Brandtjen, tried to subpoena voting machines, ballots and other election data in two counties. But her request was rejected by both counties, citing a state law that said the subpoenas had to be signed by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to be valid.
Vos said he would not sign them.
Instead, Vos hired Gableman, at a cost to taxpayers of nearly $680,000, to lead another investigation.
But it’s off to a rocky start.
Two retired police detectives Vos initially hired to assist Gableman quit this summer, saying the job would take more time than they anticipated. Vos then revised the contract with Gableman, giving him authority to hire whoever he wants.
Oh, dear. Cyber Ninjas? I’m only guessing.
Gableman has already traveled to Arizona and attended a conference in South Dakota led by MyPillow founder Mike Lindell, where election conspiracy theorists made presentations. Gableman is also consulting with Shiva Ayyadurai, a losing U.S. Senate candidate who appeared in a conspiracy theory-fueled film and falsely claimed a million ballots were destroyed in Massachusetts, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on Tuesday.
How do the GQP keep finding these people? These nut cases must be sending a message only the GQPers can read. It’s amazing how you could have 1,000 people in a room and the two crackpots would find each other instantly.
