Why Are There So Many Investigations into the 2020 Election?

            The results of the 2020 election were certified more than four months ago. Yet, investigations about those results continue to increase. An audit known as “America’s Audit” has been happening in Maricopa County, Arizona. A federal judge in Georgia has unsealed ballots for an audit there.

            According to M.D. Kittle at the Daily Signal, a complaint was filed by an election watchdog on behalf of five residents of Milwaukee. The complaint was filed by the Amistad Project, and Milwaukee became the fourth of the Wisconsin-5 “cities to be accused of election law violations under state law and the U.S. Constitution.” The complaint says that “liberal, third-party groups funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg” were allowed to “set the rules and help administer” the presidential election in November 2020. 

            Kittle wrote that there are complaints about election procedures in Green Bay, Kenosha, Racine, and Milwaukee filed with the Wisconsin Elections Commission. The Commission added another twist to the situation when it “sought outside counsel because its administrator is accused of a conflict of interest.”

The Chicago-based Center for Tech and Civic Life handed out more than $8 million in “election safety and security” grants to Wisconsin’s five largest and most heavily Democratic cities, which also include Madison. The bulk of that total -- $6.3 million – was distributed as part of a controversial contract between the center and the five cities.

The Center for Tech and Civic Life received more than $300 million from Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, ostensibly to help local elections offices administer safe and secure elections.

As a Wisconsin Spotlight investigation uncovered, CTCL required the “Wisconsin 5” cities to sign contracts that included funding “clawback” provisions if they failed to meet the organization’s demands. Local elections officials had to work with the center’s partner organizations, including the National Vote at Home Institute.

In final official results in Wisconsin, Democrat nominee Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump by 49.6% of the vote to 48.9%, flipping a state with 10 electoral votes that Trump won in 2016.

            It sounds like rural Wisconsin went with Trump, while Democrats and the CTCL rigged the big cities to go with Biden. The complaint said that “more than a dozen such left-wing partners of the Center for Tech and Civic Life” were operating in Milwaukee. Kittle stated that election law complaints have been filed against Milwaukee, Green Bay, Racine, and Kenosha by the Amistad Project.

The Wisconsin Assembly’s Campaigns and Elections Committee is investigating the involvement of third-party groups in the state’s 2020 elections. Reid Magney, spokesman for the Wisconsin Election Commission, said the agency had received the Milwaukee complaint and posted it on its website.

“The respondents have been notified of the complaint and have been given 10 business days to file a sworn response,” Magney said, adding that the complaint would be “handled the same way as the other complaints involving Green Bay, Racine, and Kenosha.”

Outside counsel will be brought in to review the complaint.
