Racine County – Sheriff Christopher Schmeling is recommending five members of the Wisconsin Electoral Commission, three appointed by Democrats and two by Republicans, be criminally charged to waive a law requiring the use of special voting deputies during elections in 2020 , he announced Wednesday in an afternoon news release.

Schmaling, a Republican, criticized Attorney General Josh Kaul, a Democrat, for not launching a statewide investigation after the Racine County Sheriff’s Office on October 28 revealed allegations of electoral fraud at Mount Pleasant’s Ridgewood Care Center after SVD. was not sent in.

Ridgewood employees collected residents’ votes, which is not normally allowed, but the WEC voted to make a statewide exception due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Based on Attorney General Josh Kaul’s failure to launch a statewide investigation, I have sent charging recommendations to the Racine County District Attorney’s Office for their review,” said a release signed by Schmaling and Sgt. Michael Luell, who led the Ridgewood investigation and is also the RCSO’s public information officer. “Recommended fee commissioners are for Margaret Bostelman, Julie Glancey, Ann Jacobs, Dean Knudsen and Mark Thomson.”

The charges against Republican-appointed commissioner Bob Spindel, who voted against waiving the SVD law, were not recommended.
