DOJ had better hurry up. What's the delay at this point? They have plenty of evidence.

They don’t discuss anything with outsiders. All we can do is wait.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Republican chair of the Wisconsin Assembly elections committee who was backed by former President Donald Trump, embraced conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and wanted to decertify President Joe Biden’s victory, has been kicked out of the closed GOP caucus because her colleagues don’t trust her, according to a letter sent to the lawmaker.

“Rest assured, I have assembled the best and brightest legal team and we are exploring every avenue to correct the many wrongs that have been done this past week,” Lake said in a video address posted Thursday morning. “I’m doing everything in my power to right these wrongs.”

I mean, she did tell us ahead of time before the first vote was cast.

I mean, of course they are screaming fraud. This is the new GOP; denial of elections and their results (only when Democrats win) is becoming the norm, hardly even worth commenting on any more. Sad.

I don’t know about that. Trump obviously started it but, that technique has failed miserably for him and his minions and has made them look like lying cheating con artists to many Americans. The GOP is in total disarray right now. They have absolutely no idea what they stand for and are being torn apart from within. Trump now has so much baggage he is carrying around that the GOP is dumping him for the newer younger less toxic DeSantis. The right wing media has turned on him too. Trump won’t go down without a fight and as we all know he doesn’t care about the damage he will cause to his party because he only cares about his party, himself.

I disagree with that part. They still stand for lessening the tax burden on their corporate donors which enable them to become wealthy via "public service". Also, the christo-fascist stuff is appealing to a lot of them, so they've weaponized in politics because there are a lot of morons who believe that garbage.

But they have no policy that improves a broad spectrum of American's daily life.

Arizona was a confederate territory.

Still, this is an an embarassement for all Americans.

Not as embarassing as Kari Lake, but close.

There's no real consequence for spouting lies about election fraud. So why shouldn't Kari Lake do that? It just builds her brand as a "fighter." The alternative is admitting that you're a loser.

Maga would never forgive her if she didn’t cry fraud. It’s expected of her and she delivered. She and Trump know it’s all BS but, that’s what they are selling.
