Trump won Wisconsin and was expected by many to win the state again in 2020.
Instead, the state was called for Biden who appears to have won by a margin of approximately one percent.
Now we are learning that thousands of absentee ballots may have been altered.
WISN News 1130 reports:
Wisconsin Clerks May Have Unlawfully Altered Thousands of Absentee Ballots
County and municipal clerks and poll workers across Wisconsin may have unlawfully altered witness statements on thousands of mail-in ballots across the state, “The Dan O’Donnell Show” has learned.
Wisconsin Statute 6.86 provides that an absentee ballot must be signed by a witness, who is also required to list his or her address. If a witness address is not listed, then the ballot is considered invalid and must be returned to the voter to have the witness correct.
Instead, multiple sources tell “The Dan O’Donnell Show,” municipal clerks and vote counters across the state simply filled out witness signatures themselves. Acting on false and unlawful advice from the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), these clerks may have inadvertently invalidated thousands of absentee votes.
“The statute is very, very clear,” said retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, who worked as a poll watcher in Milwaukee on Election Day. “If an absentee ballot does not have a witness address on it, it’s not valid. That ballot is not valid.”…
The Republican Party of Wisconsin estimates that thousands of witness addresses may have been changed, thus invalidating the ballots on which they appeared. The statutory remedy for this is to subtract a commensurate number of votes for the candidates for whom those ballots were cast, meaning that vote totals may substantially change.
Isn’t this enough to warrant an investigation?
Major developments in Wisconsin: In direct violation of state law, the Wisconsin Elections Commission instructed every clerk in the state to illegally alter absentee ballots that were missing information which would have invalidated them. https://t.co/wIUUYmWEB2
