MILWAUKEE – In response to the news that Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul is charging three people involved in the fake elector scheme in Wisconsin with felony forgery, All Voting is Local Action Wisconsin State Director Sam Liebert released the following statement:

“These charges serve as a reminder that there are systems in place in the Badger State to bring accountability to anyone who tries to subvert our elections and undermine our democracy. Fake elector schemes tried to rob voters of their voices in Wisconsin and other states across the country, and the public officials who participated in them failed the voters they were meant to serve.

“It is critical that the rest of the fake electors in the state – and across the nation – be similarly held accountable ahead of the 2024 election. Unfortunately, there have been far too many – like Commissioner Robert Spindell, who still serves on the Wisconsin Elections Commission – who have continued to hold positions of power, even after they attempted to thwart voters. If there is no accountability for their actions, they could try to do the same thing in November. We commend the state of Wisconsin for taking initial steps in ensuring that this doesn’t happen again and that voters’ voices are protected.”
