Today we filed a complaint in the battleground state of Wisconsin.

We are holding the Green Bay mayor's office accountable for allowing private, partisan activists to control major elements of the 2020 election process.
If partisan groups are allowed to ignore state law and dictate the rules governing elections, we no longer have a representative democracy.
I hope WEC will fulfill its duty & look into our claims thoroughly & objectively. That will be much more likely if Admin Meagan Wolfe and Chairperson @AnnJacobsMKE recuse themselves from the process, given the role they played in allowing Green Bay to brazenly flout state law.
WI law places the WEC in charge of elections statewide, and municipal clerks in charge of administering elections at the local level.
When Green Bay's city clerk objected to conditions imposed by an outside group, the mayor's office cut her out of the process and invited private activists to implement procedures with no legislative authorization.
That's the epitome of a lawless election!!

People deserve a fair and transparent election process.

I propose that states need to create standing committees whose sole purview would be overseeing the integrity of the election process.
These committees should have broad authority and statutory responsibility to review every election in the state and determine whether it was conducted lawfully.
After review, they should submit a report to the full legislature presenting their findings and recommending whether the election should be certified.

There are many election reform measures currently being considered by state legislatures with loopholes that allow local mayors and county officials to accept private funds to run the election.

We should not codify the corrupting influence of private money into our elections.
The Constitution, state, and federal law do not allow such private interference nor allow the creation of a two-tiered election system favoring one political party over the other.
Passing these half-measures, that are being currently considered by state legislatures, allow exceptions that swallow the rule by allowing local mayors and county officials to accept private funds to run the election.

"Ballots (in Wisconsin) were being cured by corporations."

Watch Live:…
If the city clerk is not running the election, as the law requires, then it’s NOT a fair and transparent election.

The people of Wisconsin deserve better.
Wisconsin received millions of dollars in grants by billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg through CTCL.

These grants came with conditions.

When grants comes with conditions, they tend to align with the desires of the grantor, regardless of public interest.

I cannot “just forget” about the Constitution. Nor should you.

Our founders recognized the need for vigorous and aggressive debate as a method of seeking and discovering truth, forcing transparency, and enabling the electorate to hold public servants accountable.
Our founders recognized that each individual has the inherent right of expression. Give a fool a stump to stand on, for we value free speech to the point that we allow fools to reveal themselves.
Government officials should not be arrested for their rhetoric, even if they grossly misrepresent substantive issues.

Last night the New York Times placed an article with a number of glaring flaws about the irregularities in the 2020 presidential election. Image
A recent NYT article refers to officials ‘bending the rules to make mail voting easier during the pandemic.’

This is a gross distortion intended to downplay what happened.

Election officials did not ‘bend the rules,’ they were breaking the law in a systematic fashion.
When election officials broke the law they also undermined the integrity of the election.

Criminalizing speech and placing those who criticize the state in prison is the tactic of totalitarians and it is now the tactic of the left.
The AG of Michigan, Dana Nessel, threatened legislators who questioned the election with criminal investigation and prosecution.
Governor Whitmer of MI mobilized the state police to forcibly lock republicans out of the capitol building in Michigan to prevent them from raising concerns about the election while she ordered the police to allow democrats in.
