Gableman probe is partisan boondoggle -- Debra Byars

Gableman probe is partisan boondoggle -- Debra Byars

  • 0

All Wisconsinites should be outraged about the clown show of an election “investigation” playing out at former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman’s strip mall office outside of Milwaukee.

Gableman and his incompetent team have issued subpoenas to the mayors of Wisconsin’s largest cities requiring that they appear in private to testify regarding the November 2020 election.

Despite this “investigation” costing $680,000 of taxpayer money, the testimony was to be in private. Shouldn’t a publicly funded investigation have public testimony? That may be a moot point, however, because those subpoenas have now reportedly been rescinded.

Previously, Gableman and his “crack” team sent a confusing email to county clerks across the state. 

The valuable time of Wisconsin’s mayors and clerks has been wasted while Gableman and his team try to figure out how to investigate an election that has already been counted and recounted and certified according to Wisconsin law.

Gableman has reportedly admitted that he doesn’t really understand how elections work. Our taxpayer dollars should not be wasted on this partisan boondoggle.
