A Top Wisconsin Republican Calls For 2020 Election Results To Be Decertified
The leader of the Wisconsin Assembly’s election committee said last week that the 2020 election results in the state, which went to President Joe Biden, should be declared void.
“Fair and honest elections are the cornerstone of our democracy and we know that the 2020 presidential election was neither fair, nor transparent,” state Rep. Janel Brandtjen (R) wrote in a statement. “Tyranny is at Wisconsin’s door.”
State Rep. Tim Ramthun (R), who is currently running for governor, is heading the efforts to decertify the election results. Ramthun is a supporter of former President Donald Trump‘s insistence of widespread election fraud, though multiple investigations have not found evidence of that. Legal experts say that there is no constitutional way to void the results.
In 2020, Biden won Wisconsin by 20,000 votes. After multiple recounts, the results were confirmed.

Earlier this month, top Wisconsin Republican Robin Vos (R) said that Trump is still calling him urging him to decertify the 2020 election results, to which he said he could not do that because “it’s not allowed under the Constitution.”
2020 election results are being brought up again because the Wisconsin Supreme Court recently determined that absentee ballot drop boxes are illegal. Trump and his allies believe that that means the ballots from absentee ballot drop boxes in the 2020 election should not be counted.
“When the ballot drop boxes were used illegally, anything and all things that went into them made them null and void the moment they went into the box,” Ramthun said.
