Is it just me, or has the quality of gaslighting in America really gone downhill the past few years? If you’re going to tell me a big, bold lie with a straight face, that lie probably shouldn’t make me burst out laughing. But that’s exactly what I did when reading a newly issued report from a supposedly nonpartisan public-interest law firm in Wisconsin.
After examining some of the ballots in the Wisconsin 2020 election, the group concludes in its report that there was no voter fraud that took place in that state last year. I read this report with some interest, because that news directly contradicts the findings of the Racine County Sheriff and the Special Counsel investigation. And then I started laughing.
The legal group that issued this new report out of the blue is called the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL). It’s kind of convenient that a group claiming to have “proven” that there was no voter fraud in Wisconsin in 2020 – a group that no one had heard of before this – suddenly issues this report in the run-up to the Special Counsel’s upcoming report. The Special Counsel’s interim report proved conclusively last month that fraud did take place, and he’s going to run it down.
WILL proclaims in the report, “There was no evidence of widespread voter fraud.”
That’s a definitive statement. NO evidence. None. Zero. Zip. Nada!
The report then states that the number of illegally cast votes in Wisconsin in 2020 almost certainly exceeded Joe Biden’s margin of victory.
Wait, what? Now you see why I was laughing about this report. If illegally cast votes don’t count as widespread election fraud, then what does?
Now, to be clear, WILL did not conduct any sort of election audit. They conducted a review of 20,000 ballots and were allowed (by court order) to examine 29,000 absentee ballots. So, they looked at 49,000 of the 3.2 million votes cast in Wisconsin in 2020. The also reviewed approximately 65,000 “documents,” primarily DMV and Postal Service records, of registered voters. And they STILL managed to find enough illegal votes to exceed Joe Biden’s 20,682-vote margin of fake victory. (But no fraud evidence!)
What did they find?
In the 49,000 ballots they reviewed, the group uncovered 300 ineligible voters who cast ballots, 130 ballots cast by felons, 129 ballots cast from commercial addresses (which is illegal in Wisconsin) and 42 dead people who voted.
That is 601 illegally cast ballots out of a sample of 49,000 ballots. That’s 1.2% of the vote. Which means that statistically, these goofs accidentally proved that there could have been as many as 38,892 illegal votes cast in Wisconsin in the 2020 election – nearly twice Joe Biden’s margin of victory. (Isn’t math fun?)
Tell us more, wise election fraud debunkers!
Oh, there’s more. This is great, by the way. I kind of needed a laugh this week.
In their fact-finding mission to prove that there was no fraud in the 2020 election, WILL also uncovered 54,259 voters who failed to show voter ID when they registered. (Wisconsin has one of the toughest voter ID laws in the country, so this is a big no-no.) 7,750 voters did not exist in DMV records.
Another 23,400 people who cast ballots had fraudulent DMV information on their registrations. Another 32,000 voters were listed in the National Change of Address Database with the US Postal Service, including 7,151 who had moved out of Wisconsin completely. Let’s pause on that one for a second.
It’s a violation of federal law for the Postal Service to forward a mail-in ballot. Ask yourself this question: How did those 32,000 people who moved end up casting mail-in ballots in 2020, unless some workers at the Postal Service participated in the theft of the election? If they forwarded 10 or 12 ballots to people, you could argue that it was simple human error. But when the “error” is 150% over the margin of victory, that is election fraud. Period.
When the Special Counsel’s final report is issued in Wisconsin sometime soon (and hopefully the arrests begin), the media is going to point to this report from the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty to gaslight everyone some more. They’ll claim that the WILL report proved there was no election fraud in Wisconsin in 2020.
Just remember that the WILL report concluded that felons, people from other states, and dead people voting is not “evidence” of voter fraud. They found a grand total of 156,301 illegally cast votes in Wisconsin – nearly EIGHT TIMES Joe Biden’s margin of victory – but there was “no fraud.” Most safe and secure election ever!
