Attorney General Brad Schimel is sending state Justice Department staff to polling places around Wisconsin – but is there a partisan slant? Scot Ross with the liberal activist group One Wisconsin Now is raising concerns.
Ross said that while he’s sure that Schimel’s observers will follow the law, but the problem is how DOJ determined where to send the observers. Ross contends that the DOJ poll monitors are headed to places that tend to vote for Democrats under the guise of looking for “fraud”
“Monitors are going to Stevens Point, while places like Menominee Falls have a larger population. Why is he sending them to Wausau, but not sending them to New Berlin? He has not explained himself about why exactly he’s chosen the places he’s chosen.”
The DOJ plans to send to assistant attorneys general and special agents from the Division of Criminal Investigation to Brown, Dane, Outagamie, Rock, Milwaukee counties. They will also be in the cities of Eau Claire, Kenosha, La Crosse, Racine, Stevens Point, Waukesha, and Wausau.
DOJ did not respond to a request for comment on OWN’s concerns.
