(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – A Judge in Wisconsin has ruled that Meagan Wolde, who is a leader in the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) could remain in her position despite an attempt by the GOP-controlled state Senate to have her ousted.
After months of threatening to have Wolfe removed, the Wisconsin Senate ended up firing her in September over her handling of the 2020 presidential election. They further falsely claimed that Wolfe had attempted to rig the election results in the state, which ended up being won by President Joe Biden by over 20,000 votes.
The Associated Press in their report has noted that Biden’s win has managed to withstand partial recounts, reviews from a conservative law firm, many lawsuits, and a nonpartisan audit.
On Friday, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Ann Peacock ruled that she agreed with the WEC on the importance of keeping the election system stable ahead of the 2024 election, which she argued would be best for the public. As such it was determined that Wolfe would be allowed to continue serving in her office.
Peacock wrote in her order that this move would help protect against any other legal action taken to have Wolfe removed.
Democrats have claimed that the state Senate had proceeded improperly with the vote to have Wolfe ousted from her position and that they did not have the power to have her removed.
The decision made by Peacock means that the state Senate statute that would have Wolfe removed was turned moot. The defendants also noted that under the ruling the defendants were not allowed to take any official action that went against the order.
