Rep. Lisa Subeck statement on Vos shutting down sham Gableman investigation

Madison, WI - Today, Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) announced that he is closing the Office of the Special Counsel, ending the office’s investigation into the 2020 election and terminating Michael Gableman’s employment with the Assembly. Representative Lisa Subeck released the following statement in response:

“While it is too late to repair the damage done by this baseless, expensive, and hyperpartisan charade, the lack of verifiable evidence presented by the Gableman investigation has proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that the 2020 election was secure and conducted fairly.

Republican leadership should demonstrate the courage to apologize to taxpayers for this expensive farce. They should apologize to our local elections officials for the demonization and harassment they faced as a result of the baseless allegations of fraud. And they should publicly condemn the widespread misinformation that has undermined faith in our democracy.”

Representative Lisa Subeck has represented the 78th Assembly District since 2015, serves on the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections, and serves as Chair of the Assembly Democratic Caucus.
