I Guess We Don’t Want Oversight Over Taxpayer-Funded Investigations

A motion to add more oversight to investigations commissioned by the state Legislature was voted down Thursday after being introduced by Democrats in reaction to Michael Gableman’s fruitless look into purported voter fraud during the 2020 election.

The motion would have required a vote by both the Assembly and Senate to approve the hiring of investigators but was rejected with little discussion by Republicans who hold the majority in the Legislature and on the joint finance committee

But, to vote for more oversight would be publicly admitting that Robin Vos shouldn’t have this much power and that he made a mistake, so let’s keep the rules and laws as is.
