MADISON — A Racine County judge is expected to issue a ruling soon on whether Racine city officials violated Wisconsin’s open records law related to documents surrounding the 2020 presidential election.
Judge Faye Flancher heard arguments Tuesday from lawyers representing state Rep. Janel Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls), chair of the Assembly Campaigns and Elections committee. The judge is expected to issue a ruling on Monday.
Brandtjen, the Wisconsin Voter Alliance, and H.O.T. Government, a local Racine citizens group promoting “honest, open, and transparent (H.O.T)” government, is suing Racine for refusing to turn over court requested documents related to allegations of election bribery in Wisconsin’s 2020 election.
