The seditious morans never quit!:

The leader of the Wisconsin Assembly’s elections committee called Friday for invalidating Joe Biden’s 2020 victory in the state — an idea that constitutional scholars and Republican legislative leaders have called legally impossible, Patrick Marley reports.
In a news release, state Rep. Janel Brandtjen, a Republican, falsely stated that the 2020 presidential election “was neither fair, nor transparent” and said she planned to sign on to a resolution from Republican state Rep. Tim Ramthun to decertify the election, making her the first lawmaker to join his cause.
Ramthun is running a long-shot bid for governor on a decertification platform.
While Brandtjen’s statement could influence other lawmakers to sign up for the decertification effort, she and Ramthun face long odds in getting a floor vote.
Remember: Biden beat President Donald Trump by more than 20,000 votes of 3.3 million cast in Wisconsin. Recounts and a string of court rulings upheld those results.
As Patrick reports, other Republicans in the state have fought these false claims of election fraud.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) has fought off efforts to try to revoke Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes, noting legislative attorneys and conservative legal scholars have said it can’t be done. The legislature is not scheduled to return until next year, but Brandtjen’s comments could reignite efforts to try to meet in what’s known as an extraordinary session. …
State Sen. Kathy Bernier (R) said Brandtjen may be able to get a few more Republicans to sign onto the decertification effort but nowhere near a majority. Bernier, a former county clerk who serves as the chairwoman of the state Senate’s elections committee, accused Brandtjen of engaging in a stunt after getting Trump’s endorsement in her heavily Republican district.
