Wisconsin Elections Commissioner Calls for Democratic Chair’s Resignation
A Republican member of the Wisconsin Elections Commission on Tuesday called for the Democratic chairperson’s resignation over her confirmation of the state’s election results.
Commissioner Dean Knudson called for chair Ann Jacobs to resign after Jacobs verified that Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden had won in Wisconsin by about 20,700 votes, arguing that she should have waited to act because pending lawsuits by President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign may reverse the outcome.
“I believe that I’ve lost all confidence in you as the chair,” Knudson said during the Tuesday meeting. “I can’t see that we can go forward as a group. I don’t think you realize even at this moment how much you have destroyed the bipartisan nature of what has gone on.”
