We, the Irrelevant

Alleged Election Fraud alphabetical

Feb. 2, 2022: In an Aug. 7 piece, Riley Vetterkind of the WI State Journal quoted Rep. Janel Brandtjen, R-Menomenee Falls, as follows:
 
“Legislators have been hearing from thousands of disgruntled constituents regarding their concerns with the November 2020 election,” Brandtjen said in a statement.

On Aug. 8, I queried the 82 WI legislators who comprise the Republican majority. I asked them for citizen correspondence related to election fraud, election audit, and/or election irregularities.

To date, I have received records from 65 legislators. I counted 16 and stopped. As Brandtjen said, there are thousands. The content of the emails demonstrates the power and effectiveness of the "big lie", and I could not continue reading them without endangering my mental health.

Two assembly reps, Nancy VanderMeer (R-Tomah) and Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee) claimed to have no records of citizen contacts. To the contrary, I can document that, after counting 16 of their colleagues, they were cc'd 43 and 44 times, respectively. I suspect that is only the beginning, but I'll never know for sure.

6 senators sent invoices. That has been a rare event in the recent past. I wrote them, asking them to make the same choice their colleagues have made, and waive the fees. So far, they have refused to do so. The senators are Alberta Darling (R-River Hills), $85.14; Dan Feyen (R-Fond du Lac), $134.86; John Jagler (R-Watertown), $90.42; Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield), $96.06; Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg), $584.22; and Patrick Testin (R-Stevens Point), $349.90. The fees total $1440.60. I will not pay them.

Below is the count that will have to serve as the final data set.
