WI: Evers calls $680k for election probe “outrageous”

Source: ABC News

“Democratic Gov. Tony Evers said Monday that it was ‘outrageous’ that Republicans planned to spend $680,000 on an investigation into the 2020 election in Wisconsin, accusing Assembly Speaker Robin Vos of ‘drinking the Kool-Aid’ after meeting with former President Donald Trump. A Republican-controlled Assembly committee planned to give approval Monday to designating former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman as special counsel to lead the investigation ordered by Vos, assist the Assembly Elections Committee and hire investigators and others as needed. Vos said on Friday that the contract will allow for spending up to $680,000 on the probe. That is more than nine times as much as the original contract with Gableman and the vote comes a week after Vos flew with Trump to a campaign rally in Alabama where the two discussed the Wisconsin investigation.” [editor’s note: He should just call it what it is — a Trump 2024 advertising contribution – TLK] (08/30/21)
