An attorney who is heading an election review said earlier this week he was going to subpoena five Wisconsin mayors only days after he demanded records from city clerks and the top elections official for the state.
“Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman told the Green Bay City Council at a meeting Tuesday night he had just subpoenaed Mayor Eric Genrich — only to learn from the mayor that the subpoena had not been served. Gableman promised it would be coming soon, as would ones for the mayors of Milwaukee, Madison, Racine and Kenosha,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on Tuesday.
“So if it wasn’t served today, you can expect it shortly,” Gableman told the council.
Last year Gableman claimed that the election was stolen in the state, though he did not present any evidence to support his claims, the paper said. He is now issuing subpoenas in connection to a $676,000 investigation funded by taxpayers of the presidential election which Joe Biden won by less than 1 percent.
The Journal Sentinel added:
Gableman’s comments about new subpoenas came as election officials around the state are mulling how they could comply with ones he issued Friday that direct them to turn over “all documents contained in your files and/or in your custody, possession, or control pertaining to the Election.”
That comprises hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of pages of records for the state and its five largest cities.
In a 30-minute-long, unscheduled question-and-answer session with the council, Gableman sketched out his plans for his review, telling members he wasn’t pursuing an “adversarial process.”
“I happened to be in town for other meetings and I heard you were meeting and I thought I’d come and introduce myself,” he said.
The attorney said anyone who agreed to give him an interview would summarily be granted immunity from being prosecuted. He went on to say he didn’t believe he could meet a deadline imposed by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to finish his election review by month’s end.
