Madison’s mayor and city clerk, Wisconsin, is being charged with electoral bribery in a lawsuit filed March 17, 2022, in the state of Wisconsin before the Election Commission. Thomas More Society Attorney Madison, Wisconsin, has worked on behalf of voters to file lawsuits against Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway and Madison City Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl, alleging that these officials violated Wisconsin’s Electoral Bribery Act, 1§12. Receives private funding from the Tech & Civic Life Center to facilitate private and absentee voting.
Complaints are on the rise, with 16 states now passing laws banning or controlling the use and use of private funds by public election officials. Thomas More Society attorneys have successfully sued the issue in eight states. Arizona and Texas passed legislation addressing the issue, and in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, the legislature passed legislation regulating this behavior, but those laws were vetoed by Democrat governors. Three other states, Minnesota, Iowa and South Carolina, have passed bills governing the practice and are now waiting for those bills to take effect. In Wisconsin, several counties, including Walworth County and Brown County, have passed or are considering such a ban labeled “Dark Money.”
Madison alleges it entered into an agreement with the Center for Tech and Civic Life, a biased, special interest organization, to receive more than 2 1.2 million to facilitate private and absentee voting in Rhodes-Conway and Witzel-Behl, in violation of Wisconsin law. The Center for Tech and Civic Life is a non-profit Chicago-based organization led and run by former Democratic activists and funded by billionaire Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan to influence the 2020 election.
The latest allegation before the commission follows previous allegations against Kenosha, who has been accused of violating electoral laws and bribing election officials at the Tech and Civic Life Center. In addition, the first round of Wisconsin Election Commission complaints filed by Thomas More Society attorneys representing a group of private citizens included allegations against Kenosha, Resin, Green Bay and Milwaukee.
Thomas More Society Special Counsel Attorney Eric Cardall explained that the complaint details a massive plot by the Centre’s tech and civic life to seize election administration, a key traditional government activity. In the guise of resisting COVID-19 and through the illegal dumping of private funds in the municipal process, the Center for Tech and Civic Life has handed over control of Wisconsin’s 2020 election to its “private party interests in the form of partners.”
“We can’t undo the mistakes of the 2020 election,” Kardall observed. Snakes have been hunted and eliminated, allowing fair and honest selection from this point on. “
The complaint records how the Center for Tech and Civic Life persuaded Wisconsin’s five largest city officials to sign a contract-based “gift” or “grant” agreement to fund publicly billed Covid-19 as a response grant. To implement the Wisconsin Secure Voting Plan, partners, none of whom were health or medical professionals, filed detailed evidence of activity by the self-identified “Wisconsin 5” agreement. The plan, executed as a necessary grant agreement, had nothing to do with Wisconsin’s health and safety, but outsourced the process to “biased” experts in “election administration.”
In Wisconsin, it is illegal for anyone to take money to persuade a voter to vote, and according to the complaint, this huge amount of money was paid to Madison and other municipalities in Wisconsin 5. Meaning of Center for Tech and Civic Life. Complaints include allowing private, biased, non-governmental organizations to access state voter data, redesigning voter instruction materials, targeting selected demographic groups for voter recruitment, promoting illegal ballot drop boxes, and even other illegal contracts. Keep “Voter Navigator” to help voters. This “Voter Navigator” will later be “trained and used as an election inspector.”
“That means those who helped voters cast their ballots were responsible for protecting those ballots – it’s the equivalent of sending a fox to guard a chicken coop,” Cardall shouted.
“The evidence in this case is overwhelming and reprehensible,” Cardell said. “Even on the surface, given all the benefits of suspicion, there is no question that Mayor Rhodes-Conway and Clark Witzel-Behl have taken personal money from the Center for Tech and Civic Life to facilitate private and absentee voting in Madison. It’s a violation of Wisconsin electoral law.”
“The actions of Madison’s mayor and city clerk, along with city officials in Kenosha, Resin, Milwaukee and Green Bay, will provoke Wisconsin voters,” Cardall announced. And obviously, they’ve filed complaints with the Wisconsin Election Commission against each of the 5 Wisconsin municipalities.
“Voting is a special privilege for which freedom has been paid,” Kardal added “It’s not something to sell to the highest bidder. These mayors and city clerks have deprived voters of their right to participate in free and fair elections. They exchanged independence for cash, selling control of Wisconsin’s 2020 election to a well-funded coalition of special interest groups. It’s electoral bribery, genuine and simple – and it’s wrong. “
