“The Racine County Sheriff’s Office announced that it will file criminal charges against five of the six members of the Wisconsin Election Commission.
Sheriff Schmaling recommended charges to Racine County District Attorney Patricia Hanson for Commissioners Margaret Bostelmann, Julie Glancey, Ann Jacobs, Dean Knudson, and Mark Thomsen. The charges for each commissioner include two felonies and three misdemeanors.
According to the sheriff department’s Facebook post, the charges include misconduct in public office, election fraud, and other alleged crimes.
Schmaling’s office has requested Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul investigate alleged illegal directives issued by the commission, particularly not to use the Special Voting Deputy process, which is when the clerk of each municipality brings “enough ballots to each residential care facility to vote” and “assist the voters with the voting process,” according to a commission letter that the sheriff displayed in a PowerPoint attached to the Dropbox in the Facebook post.”
