The leader of the Wisconsin Assembly’s elections committee on Friday issued subpoenas demanding materials from two counties related to the 2020 election.Republican state Rep. Janel Brandtjen said the subpoenas to Milwaukee and Brown counties are a part of a “top-to-bottom investigation of the 2020 Presidential General Election,” which she said aligns with a resolution authorizing an investigation into the election that the Wisconsin state Assembly adopted in March.
As the Chair of the Assembly Committee of Campaigns and Elections, I am issuing these subpoenas as the first step towards a full, cyber-forensic audit of tabulators and inspection of the physical ballots from the November 2020 fall election,”
she said in a statement on Friday.
“Legislators have been hearing from thousands of disgruntled constituents regarding their concerns with the November 2020 election,”
Brandtjen noted. “From outside money pouring into Democrat-controlled communities, to individuals engaging in questionable activities; from improper guidance given to clerks from the Wisconsin Elections Commission, to clerks illegally prompting voters to declare themselves ‘indefinitely confined.’ The list goes on and on.”
The subpoenas demand that by Sept. 7, the respective county clerks must submit election materials to the committee. The materials include all physical, mail-in, and provisional ballots cast in the election, as well as all tabulation equipment and software, forensic images of all election equipment, audit trail logs, IP addresses, and much more.
“This is not something that we’re going to be doing just in 2020. We’re going to be doing it every year going forward,” Brandtjen said at a Friday rally at the state Capitol announcing the subpoenas, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson and Brown County Clerk Patrick Moynihan didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment when reached by The Associated Press. Brown County Deputy Executive Jeff Flynt said the county had received the subpoena and was reviewing it, the news wire reported.
