Rep. Scott Allen (R-Waukesha) released the following statement today:
It’s refreshing to have a law enforcement official step forward to crack down on the fraud that occurred with the November 2020 election.
Sheriff Schmaling’s presentation of evidence makes it clear that the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) asked clerks to break the law by prohibiting Special Voting Deputies (SVD’s) from entering nursing homes to assist residents in voting securely.
It appears that votes were illegally cast and collected. Nursing home staff were exchanging unsealed ballot envelopes, violating the chain of custody, which the U.S. Department of Justice recently admonished clerks to secure (July 2021).
It’s time for people who will not faithfully execute the duties of their office to leave state government.
WEC commissioners – both Democrat and Republican appointees – who voted to violate state laws regarding Special Voting Deputies in nursing homes should resign or be replaced. Meagan Wolfe and WEC staff who offered guidance and logistical support to these lawless actions should be dismissed. All should be investigated for committing election fraud in violation of Wisconsin Statute §12.13.
The citizens who had their ballots improperly cast are some of the most vulnerable. Their rights should not have been so brazenly violated.
I hope more law enforcement officials will have the courage to pursue their own investigations, follow where the facts lead, and prosecute to the full extent of the law.
