BREAKING: Wisconsin Republicans Begin Legal and Legislative Process of Impeaching Fired Administrator of Elections
Guest post by Jefferson Davis
Madison – After weeks of delay, Wisconsin Republican Assembly Leadership has finally assigned a number to the Articles of Impeachment for fired Administrator of Elections, Meagan Wolfe, and assigned the impeachment process to an Assembly Committee.
5 brave Assembly Republicans filed 15 Articles of Impeachment (click here – (23-4453/1) (democracydocket.com)) on fired Administrator of Elections Meagan Wolfe on September 22, 2023, when Ms. Wolfe refused to leave her office area after the Wisconsin State Senate fired her on September 14, 2023.
The Gateway Pundit has extensively covered this developing story over the last 45-60 days – Wisconsin Senate Republicans Unanimously Vote to Finally End the Nightmare of How Elections Are Administered by Removing Administrator of Elections Meagan Wolfe | The Gateway Pundit | by Jim Hoft.
Administrator of Elections Meagan Wolfe has been the subject of many questionable policy and administrative decisions involving the administration of elections in Wisconsin since she was first confirmed by the Wisconsin Republican Senate in 2019 under Senate Rule 22 of Advice and Consent (click here – Wisconsin Legislature: sr22).
Wisconsin’s Presidential Race was supposedly decided 20,682 votes at 3:44 A.M. on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, after all statewide precincts had been reported, when a supposed missing flash drive was recovered that contained some 170,000 absentee ballots in the City of Milwaukee that hadn’t been tabulated.
President Trump was comfortably ahead at the time, but congratulatory email exchanges between Zuckerberg Staff and the City of Milwaukee Elections Director at 4:07 A.M., showed that they had the votes at midnight to secure Wisconsin’s 10 Electoral College Votes to the democrat nominee, but wanted to make sure all precincts were in before they announced the results of the absentee ballots that hadn’t been tabulated yet (click here – Milwaukee Election Flash Drive Was Briefly Lost, Sources Say. (wisconsinrightnow.com)).
The Office of Special Counsel, appointed by Speaker Vos (R-Rochester), and led by retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Gableman, submitted a scathing report in March of 2022 that delved into the many moving parts of the administration of the 2020 Presidential Election that began in 2019 (click here – Microsoft Word – OSC Second Interim Report (wisconsin.gov)).
Administrator Wolfe has “literally” hired Wisconsin’s Attorney General “One Call” Josh Kaul, of liberal Perkins and Coie fame, to be her personal attorney at taxpayer expense to keep her in place indefinitely while apparently having total disregard for any law or constitutional legislative process (click here – Attorney General Kaul Announces Lawsuit to Clarify WEC Administrator Meagan Wolfe Remains a Lawful Holdover | Wisconsin Department of Justice (state.wi.us)).
Liberal Dane County Judge Peacock issued a temporary ruling on Friday, October 27, 2023 (click here – Dane County judge blocks legislators from removing Wolfe during lawsuit (pbswisconsin.org)), that the judge feels will keep the fired Administrator of Elections in place until a formal court order is issued and will also block any attempt of Republican Legislators to appoint an interim Administrator of Elections per Wisconsin State statute 15.61.
A non-profit group started a major media blitz on Thursday, November 2nd (click here – Ad campaign threatens to unseat Robin Vos unless Wolfe is impeached (jsonline.com)), asking election integrity supporters to contact Speaker Vos (R-Rochester) in support of assigning a number to the Articles of Impeachment and assigning it to an Assembly Committee to start the impeachment process of the fired Administrator of Elections.
Speaker Vos (R-Rochester) immediately capitulated and assigned a number to the Articles of Impeachment (click here – Wisconsin Legislature: AR18: Resolution Text) and fittingly assigned it to the Assembly Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight (click here – 2023 Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight (wisconsin.gov)).
The Wisconsin Constitution provides that a simple majority in the Assembly is all that is needed to impeach, and a two-thirds majority is needed in the Senate to convict (click here – WISCONSIN LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL).
Wisconsin is a deep red state with a 64-35 Assembly Majority and a 22-11 Senate Super Majority.
Oddly enough, election integrity warrior Rep. Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls), serves on the Assembly Committee on Government Accountability and Oversight. This Committee has 4 republican members and 3 democrat members.
It is hoped this Committee will immediately schedule Hearings to begin the process of impeaching fired Administrator of Elections Meagan Wolfe who refuses to leave the office area that she has been occupying for the last 4+ years.
The discovery phase of the 15 Articles of Impeachment will provide riveting testimony documenting the many areas of election administration that has long been suspected of being unethical, illegal and possibly criminal.
