image for Wisconsin governor pushes for prosecution of state’s 2020 fake electors

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) on Friday argued the 10 people who participated in the fake electors scheme in his state in an attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election for former President Trump should be charged for their actions.

“There has to be accountability,” Evers said after a bill signing ceremony, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“What they did was wrong, and so I’m hoping somebody will pick up the banner here, because this has to happen.”.

Wisconsin was not the only state, however, to face attempts by fake electors to overturn their state’s election results in the 2020 presidential election.

Republicans in six other states that Trump lost participated in the scheme: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico and Pennsylvania.

“They weren’t the duly elected and qualified electors, and each of the defendants knew it,” Nessel said in a video announcing the charges.

Eight fake electors also received immunity deals in Georgia in May in an investigation there into 2020 election meddling. »
