Wisconsin is officially auditing the results of the 2020 Election, with the official announcement coming today according to Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson.
Robinson announced on Twitter, “The state of Wisconsin authorized an audit of the 2020 election!”
The official audit was ordered almost three months ago by Republicans in the State Legislature, according to Newsweek.
The Joint Legislative Audit Committee voted to order the audit along party lines. The audit will be run by a non-partisan body.
Republicans argue that the measure is necessary to increase transparency in the highly controversial 2020 election, as well as our election system in general. Since Biden only won Wisconsin by about 20,000 votes, it is imperative to ensure that voter fraud played no role in his victory.
Democrats voted against the measure unanimously, warning that an audit will erode trust in the system.
“I know that this audit will help people understand our elections better and hopefully put to rest concerns, and if there are some problems with administration, I’m confident we’ll fix them,” declared State Senator Robert Cowles (R-WI), co-chair of the Audit Committee.
The full forensic audit comes after Wisconsin only had a recount in two counties in the weeks following the 2020 election. Unlike the statewide forensic audit, the recount did not throw out ballots if they were found to be illegitimate, thus rendering such efforts ineffective.
