“Wisconsin: Michael Gableman backs away from talk of election decertification, Republican leaders say”

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman urged Wisconsin lawmakers in March to strongly consider rescinding the state’s electoral votes for President Joe Biden — an idea that scholars call legally preposterous.

On Tuesday, he presented a different view to Republicans who run the Assembly, while claiming he had not reversed himself, according to those who met with him.

Asked if he had heard Gableman say that the state Legislature could not decertify the 2020 election, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos of Rochester said: “We just talked about it in front of our entire leadership team where he basically said that.”

Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke of Kaukauna concurred with Vos’ account.
