A group of Republican Wisconsin lawmakers on Thursday proposed impeaching Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe as Democrats wage a legal battle to keep the nonpartisan administrator in office.
The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Senate voted Thursday to fire the battleground state’s nonpartisan top elections official ahead of the 2024 presidential election.
A Republican-controlled committee on Monday recommended firing Wisconsin’s top elections official rather than reappointing her, clearing the way for a vote by the full GOP-led state Senate as soon as Thursday.
Critics have railed against many Wisconsin Elections Commission decisions, but they were made by bipartisan commissioners, not the administrator.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission declined to vote on whether the state’s top elections official should appear before a state Senate hearing on her reappointment.
