Gableman argues that he is acting impartially in pursuit of the truth so that Wisconsin voters can be confident that their elections will be fair.
But just a week after Gableman was appointed special adviser, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Gableman said the election had been stolen back in November during a speech to Trump supporters in Milwaukee.
So much for a neutral arbiter.
Redoubling his bias, Gableman hired Trump’s former White House lawyer to help him with the investigation. Lawyer Andrew Kloster also claimed without evidence that the election had been stolen.
That’s it to allow the evidence to lead to a conclusion. Gableman and Kloster turned the script around, looking for something to back up their long-standing and unfounded allegations. Gableman even asked the local authorities to show in the elections that they did nothing wrong. So much about the innocent until proven guilty.
Gableman confused county clerks with a cryptic email from someone named “John Delta” looking for documents. Many clerks deleted the letter, fearing that it was a security risk. Gableman traveled to South Dakota to listen to the campaign plots of discredited MyPillow chief executive Mike Lindell, a Trump ally. Gableman traveled to Arizona to inquire about his party investigation, which recently culminated in Biden winning several more votes than before. Trump, ignoring the facts, again falsely claimed that he had won.
