On this day in 1848, Wisconsin enters the Union: “Wisconsin became the 30th state to enter the Union with an area of 56,154 square miles, comprising 1/56 of the United States at the time. Its nickname, the “Badger State,” was not in reference to the fierce animal but to miners who spent their winters in the state, living in dugouts and burrowing much like a badger.”
MADISON – When Wisconsin Republicans asked the public to report concerns about the 2020 election, voters flocked to the web to submit tips — often about the very officials conducting the probe.
“There is a very disturbed man ranting like a lunatic and telling provable lies about the election in order to undermine election integrity,” one person wrote in April. “Not only that, he’s stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars from taxpayers by pretending to do a legitimate investigation. This is fraud at the highest levels and he literally advocated nullifying the votes of Wisconsin. Please stop this flagrant fraud asap.”
The submission was similar to dozens of others filed over the last year that taunt Assembly Speaker Robin Vos of Rochester and former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman for budgeting $676,000 for a review of a presidential election that recounts, court decisions and independent studies have concluded was properly called for Joe Biden.
Well done, Wisconsin, so very well done.
