GOP calls Evers’ mass ballot mailing idea ‘complete fantasy’

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republicans are calling Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ request to convene to alter state election law in light of the coronavirus crisis a “fantasy.”

Evers tweeted Friday that he wants the Legislature to act “swiftly” and send ballots to all registered voters for the April 7 election. His attorney says he’ll get sued if he tries to do it unilaterally.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald issued a statement Friday afternoon calling the request a “complete fantasy.” He says there’s no way clerks can procure, print, verify and mail millions of ballots in just days and acting like they can is a “hoax.”
