State GAB punts away responsibility


The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) is supposed to be the agency that protects the election process in this state. But after making the weird decision to allow smartphone data for voter registration, and then public begging of the state Supreme Court by GAB Executive Director Kevin Kennedy not to reinstate the voter ID law, the GAB has decided not to investigate the tampering with the ballot bags in Racine.

[Madison, Wisc…] During the Racine recount this past summer, officials learned several ballot bags had been opened and resealed without explanation or documentation. It remains undetermined whether the contents of those bags were in any way disturbed or tampered with after they were opened by persons unknown.

In an exclusive interview the MacIver News Service, Kevin Kennedy, Wisconsin Government Accountability Board Executive Director, says those incidents did not affect the results of the election and the GAB will not investigate the matter any further.

So the mystery remains. Who opened those bags?

Why were the bags opened and resealed between election night and the start of the Senate District 21 recall?

Why isn’t the GAB concerned enough to investigate this matter?
