Republicans Order Investigation Into Election Results

( – Questions continue to surround the highly disputed 2020 presidential election. When the votes were counted, Joe Biden had won Wisconsin by fewer than 21,000 votes over the president. Trump’s lawyers filed a lawsuit challenging Wisconsin’s election results, but on March 8, the US Supreme Court declined to hear the case. However, Wisconsin’s state house decided to intercede in the matter.

The Republican-led Wisconsin State Assembly passed a resolution on Tuesday, March 23, authorizing the Elections and Campaign Committee to launch an investigation into the 2020 presidential election.

The resolution provides the committee the authority to issue subpoenas to gather documents and compel testimony from witnesses. The resolution passed by a vote of 58 to 35 along party lines with Republicans voting unanimously in support of the measure and all Democrats voting against it.

Assembly Republicans have also introduced election-related legislation aimed at requiring voter ID for absentee voters, and limiting the number of ballot drop boxes along with other important measures.

With any luck, the investigation will determine once and for all what, if any, election irregularities occurred allowing legislators to take the appropriate measures to prevent a repeat of any questionable issues in the future.
