GOP to spend "$680,000, at least, to start" in hunt for disproven "steal"

On Wednesday dueling releases from the Republican and Democratic leaders of the state Assembly addressed the election audit that Speaker Robin Vos assured former President Donald Trump, who lost the 2020 election, he would perform while riding on Trump’s plane to a rally on Saturday.

The so-called audit is part of the project for which Vos hired former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman: to investigate the Wisconsin vote in that election. The Wisconsin election has already been proven in courts, two recounts, machine audits and committee investigations to be fair and accurate. Additionally, Republicans have asked the nonpartisan Legislative Audit Bureau to do another audit that is still underway.

Vos’ release Wednesday said nothing he has not already said multiple times, other than to point out that it was being put out by the entire Assembly GOP, not just his office.

“Assembly Republicans have been working with Justice Gableman to conduct a swift, complete and thorough investigation,” the release on behalf of all the Republican members of the Assembly stated. “Part of our discussion has been focused on hiring independent contractors to enhance our efforts. We believe a cyber-forensic audit is necessary to ensure issues did not happen in 2020. We have allocated additional resources to Justice Gableman to ensure this investigation gets to the truth.”

1. Gableman

Is getting 11 grand a month for 4 months to do this. He is a hard right conservative.

3. When I hear about all these vast sums being spent for ridiculous and pointless causes

I always think of all the good they could do if they were spent for something useful that could help people. What a waste.

4. If the Republicans want to pay for the audit then they can do so on their own dime.

Spending taxpayer money with no justification is a waste of resources.

5. I couldn't agree more

I remember reading that they require new voting machines in Arizona after that clusterfuck of an audit - which proved nothing. And that's an exorbitant expense.

6. They don't care how much money they waste or how many people they kill.

As long as they can grandstand with lies and cheating for the sake of power and wealth.
