Madison – State Representative Janel Brandtjen (R- Menomonee Falls), Chair of the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections, issued the following statement regarding Green Bay Mayor’s refusal to cooperate with committee investigations:

“On March 10th of last year, the Assembly’s Campaigns & Elections committee heard testimony, including hard, tangible evidence, that a high-level Obama operative, Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein, was working closely with the City of Green Bay Mayor’s Office to insert himself into the City Clerk’s management of the November 2020 election. Emails and testimony show that Mr. Spitzer-Rubenstein was not only given access to the Central Count location where absentee ballots were stored, but was also listed as the only on-site contact for the KI center and given keys to the facility. On election night, Mr. Spitzer-Rubenstein was issued a City of Green Bay nametag. Mayor Genrich has been given multiple opportunities to come before the committee and explain why an outside operative from New York City was allowed to interfere with an election process that is reserved for duly appointed officials, who have taken an oath to conduct fair and honest elections. The people of Wisconsin deserve answers, not stonewalling and gaslighting from their elected leaders.”
