La Crosse Co. Republican party chairperson facing allegations of fraud
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WKBT)- The head of the La Crosse County Republican Party is among 10 people facing allegations of fraud and other serious charges.
A member of the SEIU Wisconsin State council filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
It alleges Bill Feehan and 9 others created fraudulent documents and impersonated the state’s presidential electors in December.
It goes on to say the fraudulent electors lied about the outcome of the election, signed documents for candidates who lost Wisconsin’s statewide vote, and then mailed those fraudulent documents to Congress and other state and federal officials apparently intending for the state’s electoral votes to be counted for the candidates they preferred.
Attorneys for the SEIU state council are also calling for an investigation by the Milwaukee County district attorney to determine whether any crimes were committed including forgery, falsely assuming to act as a public officer, and misconduct in public office, all felonies.
Political analyst Joe Heim says this is a unique situation.
“This has the potential to be serious. I don’t know how far it’s going to go. I’m not a lawyer nor a judge. I suspect no one is going to end up going to jail, but there are consequences to this,” said Heim.
The SEIU state council is also asking the State Bar to investigate any potential ethical violations.
News 8 Now did try to contact Feehan several times Thursday for comment, but had not heard back.
