Robin Vos Wasting Taxpayer Resources To Investigate Non-Existent Voter Fraud

MADISON, Wis. — Just days after the Associated Press reported Wisconsin only saw 27 possible cases of voter fraud out of 3 million votes (a rate of about 0.0009%), Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos announced he was leading an investigation into the 2020 election, with no regard for the cost to taxpayers.

Wisconsin Republicans are following the lead of Republicans in states like Florida and Arizona, who are also wasting everyone’s time and money by authorizing sham investigations into the results of the presidential election. A recount, a report from Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security, and countless rulings by conservative-majority courts in Wisconsin proved that the 2020 Wisconsin election was secure time and again.

“Republicans won’t fund health care, schools, or infrastructure, but they will authorize funds to desperately try and prove conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. What a ridiculous waste of the legislature’s time and money,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Kayla Anderson. “This fishing expedition won’t teach us anything we don’t already know – the 2020 election was secure, and Joe Biden is our legitimately elected president, period. Wisconsinites do not want Republicans to waste their money on this ‘investigation’ – they want the state legislature to finally expand BadgerCare and work with Governor Evers to make sure Wisconsin bounces back.”
