(Raymond Neupert, WRN) The head of the State Senate Elections Committee is calling for attacks on local elections officials to stop, both from the public and from lawmakers.
The head of the State Senate Elections Committee says her fellow Republicans need to stop attacking the integrity of Wisconsin's elections. Chairwoman Kathleen Bernier says nothing her committee has seen over the past year has changed the outcome. "No election is perfect but there is not evidence of intentional malfeasance. No evidence that the election in 2020 wasn't accurate."
Bernier says there has been no evidence that the 2020 election was intentionally mishandled or stolen. "So we cannot keep undermining our Republic. It is not easy to fraudulently vote in the state of Wisconsin."
Bernier says the damage to the electoral process could be permanent. "When did Benjamin Franklin came out of the convention and our constitution was created he was asked what kind of government do we have and he said, 'A republic if we can keep it!' We're in jeopardy of losing it!"
Bernier says that she's seen no evidence that the 2020 presidential election was intentionally mishandled, nor were electoral issues severe enough to damage the outcome.
