Wisconsin Assembly Speaker seeks investigation into Milwaukee’s counting of absentee ballots

Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, a Republican, has called for a review of the election in his state, urging assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections to investigate claims of voter fraud, though many have already been debunked.

Vos said “with concerns surfacing about mail-in ballot dumps and voter fraud, Wisconsin citizens deserve to know their vote counted.”

He added “there should be no question as to whether the vote was fair and legitimate, and there must be absolute certainty that the impending recount finds any and all irregularities.”

Vos added he specifically seeks an investigation into Milwaukee’s counting of absentee ballots, and the removal of voters from state rolls who no longer live in the state. Milwaukee is a Democratic stronghold.

Trump and Biden are separated by roughly 20k votes in Wisconsin and the Trump campaign has indicated they will request a recount.
