(Bob Hague, WRN) Attorney General Josh Kaul says it’s time to shut down an investigation into the 2020 presidential election.
The Democratic AG commenting, after Republican state Senator Kathy Bernier called on former state Supreme Court justice Mike Gableman to conclude the taxpayer funded election review “sooner rather than later.”
“I agree with Senator Bernier, I think that this investigation should be shut down as quickly as possible.” Kaul says the Gableman probe is premised on the “big lie” that the election was somehow stolen. “We’ve got to push back on these allegations and tell the truth about what happened. I hope we hear that from other Republicans as well.”
Kaul says it’s time to shut down the investigation into the 2020 presidential election. “What is really happening with this investigation is an effort to perpetuate the big lie. This false notion which has been disproven over against that there are reasons to be skeptical about the validity of our election results.”
The taxpayer funded Republican probe is being led by former conservative state Supreme Court justice Mike Gableman. During a weekend campaign event with Republican candidate for governor Rebecca Kleefisch in Beloit, Gableman asked for support to keep the effort going.
