Wisconsin Racine County sheriff Christopher Schmaling has made an official announcement that charges will be filed against five of the six members of the Wisconsin Election Commision (WEC). The press release was issued via the Sheriff Schmaling’s Facebook page, according to a Your News report. The charges for each member includes:

  • Misconduct in Public Office in violation of Wis. Stat. § 946.12(2) (Felony)

  • Election Fraud – Election Official Assisting with Violations in violation of Wis. Stat. § 12.13(2)(b)7 (Felony)

According to Sheriff Schmailing’s Facebook page, the charges were referred to Racine County District Attorney, Patricia Hanson. State attorney Josh Kaul has also been called upon to launch a full investigation into what is being identified as illegal directives issued by the WEC, a directive to not use the Special Voting Deputy process as required by state statute 6.875.

Schmailing’s Facebook page stated:

Based upon the failure of Attorney General Josh Kaul to initiate a statewide investigation, I have forwarded charging recommendations to the Racine County District Attorney’s Office for their review. The recommended charges are for Commissioners Margaret Bostelmann, Julie Glancey, Ann Jacobs, Dean Knudson, and Mark Thomsen.”
