“Johnson says Wisconsin fake electors should not face charges for ‘political activity'”

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

 Ten Republicans who signed paperwork claiming to be electors for Donald Trump in 2020 after he lost reelection should not face criminal charges, U.S. Sen Ron Johnson said Friday.

The Republican senator described the actions by the group of Wisconsin Republicans as “political activity.” He made his comments a day after the former president was arrested in Fulton County, Georgia, on charges that he attempted to overturn 2020 election results in the state, the fourth criminal case he faces while campaigning for a second term in the White House.

The group of Wisconsin Republicans who signed the fake elector paperwork are not facing criminal charges, but Democratic Gov. Tony Evers said earlier this month those participating in the fake elector scheme should be held accountable.
