Wisconsin lawmaker pushes to decertify 2020 election results

Former President Donald Trump has long said that Joe Biden’s election victory was fraudulent, and he’s far from the only one who believes that.

That was evident last week when Wisconsin state Rep. Janel Brandtjen called for her state’s 2020 results to be decertified.

“Neither fair, nor transparent”

According to the Washington Examiner, Brandtjen issued the demand in a statement posted this past Friday on Facebook.

“Fair and honest elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and we know that the 2020 presidential election was neither fair, nor transparent,” the state lawmaker wrote.

Brandtjen added that she would join with fellow Republican state representative and gubernatorial candidate Tim Ramthun in an attempt to overturn the election’s results.

Impossible?

“We have been told for months now that decertification is impossible, meaning there is no downside to cheating in Wisconsin elections,” Brandtjen complained before asking, “How many more times do we need to endure this election injustice?”

However, Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said in an interview with local ABC affiliate WISN 12 decertification is not constitutionally possible.

“He makes his case, which I respect,” Vos said regarding a Truth Social post that Trump had made. “He would like us to do something different in Wisconsin.”

“I explained it’s not allowed under the Constitution. He has a different opinion, and then he put out the tweet. So that’s it.”

“Dangerous”

Democratic state Rep. Mark Spreitzer serves on the Committee on Campaigns and Elections, which is chaired by Brandtjen. He was quoted by the Washington Post as saying that Brandtjen’s position is a threat to Wisconsin’s integrity.

“Ultimately, when voting starts, if we can’t come together as a state, as a country, and say, ‘Whether we like the rules or not, we’re all going to try to get our people out to vote under them, we’re going to count the votes, and whoever gets the most votes is going to win,” Spreitzer declared.

“If we can’t agree on that, then we don’t have the core foundation of a democratic form of government, and that is dangerous.”
