Wisconsin Republicans to hire former State Supreme Court Justice to review election audit

Wisconsin Republicans are bringing in a big gun to oversee their review of the state’s 2020 election results:

Here’s more:

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos is hiring a former conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court justice to oversee the speaker’s review of the results of the 2020 election.

Vos announced the hire of former justice Michael Gableman at the state Republican convention in Wisconsin Dells, though Gableman argued the review “is not a partisan effort.”

“What we’re after is fairness and honesty,” he said.

Following confirmation of President Joe Biden’s victory in the Nov. 3 election, Gableman said the presidency was stolen.

“I don’t think anyone here can think of anything more systematically unjust than a stolen election,” Gableman told a crowd at a pro-Trump rally staged Nov. 7 in a parking lot at American Serb Hall in Milwaukee.

The announcement came about 15 hours after former President Donald Trump released a statement blasting Vos and other Republican legislative leaders, claiming the group was engaging in a “cover up” of election corruption.

Given the past comments of Gableman highlighted above, I’m sure the left will use them to undermine and dismiss the conclusion of the election review. But the review won’t be someone’s opinion, it will be a set of facts that come down wherever they come down. I’m sure Gableman will make sure that every stone is overturned in this review process, and if there was no systematic fraud, we’ll all find out.

This is really a no-win with the left, because if there isn’t any systemic fraud (enough to overturn election results), they will celebrate saying even a Trump supporting judge couldn’t find any fraud. But if the opposite happens, they will claim the Trump supporting judge invented fraud or something and claim the review was unfair.

So honestly, I’m glad they have someone in their corner who is skeptical of the election results because I believe that’s the best way to get us to the truth, regardless of what that may be.
