Kleefisch Files Suit Against WEC

Former Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is joining calls for action against the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

In that lawsuit, Kleefisch mirrors comments made by legislative Republicans and Racine County’s sheriff. She wants the courts to overturn guidance made last year by the elections commission on ballot drop boxes and special voting deputies.

A spokesperson for the state Democratic party calls the lawsuit absurd, and an attempt to raise money for what’s likely to be a brutal primary cycle.
