The latest news about Wisconsin has got me thinking about that famous Hemingway quote from “The Sun Also Rises.” One character in the book asks another how he went bankrupt. The answer: “Gradually, then suddenly.”
I can’t even remember the last time I wrote anything in depth about Wisconsin and the 2020 election before last week. Wisconsin just hasn’t been on anyone’s radar, especially with everything that’s happened in Arizona and Georgia. But then I wrote about Wisconsin twice in one week. The story has continued to snowball from there, to the point where it now looks like people will be going to jail – and Wisconsin very well might be the first state to decertify!
Last week, a state office finished an “audit” of Wisconsin’s 2020 election. I wrote about how that audit was actually very inadequate, because the state workers only examined small, random samplings of ballots from around the state. At first glance, it looked like they did manage to uncover discrepancies totaling more than three times larger than Joe Biden’s alleged margin of victory (roughly 20,000 votes).
In a follow-up article last week, I dug deeper into that Wisconsin report and noted that there was a statistical probability that 320,000 people double voted in Wisconsin. There were also about 60,000 voters who either lied on their applications or used fake IDs to register to vote. And another 44,000 were allowed to vote without showing a photo ID, which is illegal in Wisconsin. (Plus, 12,000 dead voters still on the rolls!)
In total, there was a 2,150% discrepancy in Wisconsin between Joe Biden’s “victory” and what the result could have actually been. Then the Wisconsin state senate surprised us all by authorizing a full forensic audit of the 2020 election, based on those findings. Be still my beating heart!
But the party was STILL not over!
Late last week, the Racine County Sheriff released the findings of a months-long criminal investigation. The Sheriff says the Wisconsin Election Commission knowingly “shattered” state election laws to carry out a major voter fraud conspiracy. The WEC instructed nursing homes in Racine County (and the Sheriff believes in all 72 counties in Wisconsin) to fill out ballots for incapacitated elderly people. These were old folks who did not have the capacity to think or make an informed choice on a ballot. You know, like Joe Biden.
Instead of sending teams of one Republican and one Democrat to watch and assist elderly people in filling out their ballots, as required by law, the nursing home staff members filled out ballots for these people and cast fraudulent votes in their names. Observers are an important part of this process (voting for others by proxy). The Republican Party complained at the time that they were not being allowed to watch these proxy votes happen in nursing homes. Democrats were mysteriously silent. But the GOP was told that because of COVID, it was unsafe for observers to watch the nursing home proxy votes. It was just too dangerous to follow the law. Uh huh.
Meanwhile, the Sheriff noted that Door Dash delivery drivers were allowed into the nursing homes to drop off lunch for staffers. The workers who refilled the vending machines and all sorts of other people who were not election observers were allowed in. But it was just too unsafe to let election teams in to ensure the integrity of that proxy voting for seniors.
The Sheriff has turned all the findings over to the District Attorney in Racine County to begin prosecuting Wisconsin Election Commission employees and nursing home employees over this conspiracy. We went from not talking about Wisconsin at all a few days ago, to people are about to go to jail, in the blink of an eye. How did I fall in love with Wisconsin? Gradually, then suddenly!
The best part of all is that the GOP in Wisconsin has been taken over by a bunch of Trumpers. They sent a nasty letter to the Wisconsin Assembly Speaker and the Senate President, who are both Republicans. The GOP in that state has warned the Republican legislators that they need to act on this immediately by firing everybody on the Election Commission and getting this audit taken care of ASAP. The tone of the letter is basically threatening to not fund their reelection campaigns – and maybe even primary them – if they continue to fail the voters of Wisconsin by allowing a false election result to stand. Daddy is taking away the keys if you don’t get your grades up!
It’s been a slow, gradual process, but then suddenly out of the blue, a Sheriff in Wisconsin has changed the whole conversation. Who had that on their bingo card? Keep your chins up, everyone. We’re going to win this fight. The whole truth is going to come out – gradually, then suddenly.
