Political statement? Recount observers given poop emoji wristbands

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 25, 2020

MADISON — If you’re concerned about the competency or partisanship of the elections officials in charge of the Milwaukee County presidential vote recount, George Christenson’s comments on poop emojis probably aren’t going to help. 

During a press conference Tuesday at the Milwaukee Center, the Milwaukee County clerk was asked why recount observers had been given wristbands with the poop swirl images on them. Christenson responded, “Oh, yeah, I always thought it was chocolate ice cream, personally.” 

While Milwaukee County elections officials haven’t been shy in showing their disdain for Trump campaign representatives and observers, Christenson insists it’s a “non-issue.” 

He said the Wisconsin Center is in charge of the “logistics” and, presumably, the poop emoji wristbands. 

“This is the first opportunity they’ve had to be open in quite some time through the pandemic,” he said. 

So, no time like the present to roll out some feces-themed wristbands — in the middle of a critical recount?
