Wisconsin to hold election hearing

Just The NewsThe Wisconsin State Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections is slated to hold a hearing about the 2020 presidential election this week on Friday, Dec. 11.

"With numerous concerns brought forward, we will proceed with the election investigation," said Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, a Republican. "We must ensure that every legal vote was counted and begin working to eliminate questionable practices that undermine the integrity of the vote."

The Dec. 3 announcement about the hearing notes that the committee has gotten thousands of complaints pertaining to the election and in the past month has been reviewing them. The committee chairman, State Rep. Ron Tusler, a Republican, "will provide a report of his findings to the committee members and invite speakers to testify before the committee."

December 11th is an awkward date; after the Dec 8th safe-harbor date for electors, but before the actual Dec 14th meeting. How important those dates are in this case is somewhat of an open question,since they are set by statute rather than the Constitution.
