State Senator Not Convinced In Nursing Home Charges

The head of the State Senate elections committee says she doesn’t agree with a claim that the Wisconsin elections commission committed a crime in Racine County.

State Senator Kathleen Bernier tells Capital City Sunday that she does think the elections commission dropped the ball on serving elderly people in nursing homes.

“They needed to make sure the people who are assisting them, they knew exactly who they are, they had to be trained, they had to take an oath of office and there should have been some protections.”

Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling claimed the commission broke the law when they kept special voting deputies out of nursing homes last year during the pandemic.
