Rachel Maddow took on the election *audit* in Wisconsin last week. A little background: Gableman is a dyed-in-the-wool Scott Walker-esque judge. He was a judge in the next county north of us; sometime in the 2010s he became a justice on the state Supreme Court. He is currently retired.The Republican legislature decided to have him perform an *audit* of the 2020 election in the state.
- He was widely quoted this past week saying he doesn’t understand how elections work.
- The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is traditionally a conservative newspaper. Perhaps the shocking deeds of the past five years has caused the newspaper to reconsider. Good for them.
Wisconsin republicans do seem to encompass a lot of malevolent nitwits…
Ya, we’ve been making the front page of the Washington Post lately. Not good. Which reminds me, I haven’t emailed Ron Johnson for a few days. I bet Russian Ron misses me.
Isn’t it amazing how quickly “Fiscal Conservatism” flies out the window when there’s a nice, juicy conspiracy theory to chase. How many school lunches is this costing?
This is the plan of the GOP in all 50 states. I read the most interesting article by Mark Elias (https://www.democracydocket.com/news/how-the-gop-will-try-to-subvert-our-elections/) and then saw him on Rachel. The GOP has realized they cannot win fairly, so they are going to win at the cost of our democracy.
