As part of their investigation of the 2020 election, Wisconsin Assembly Republicans want to throw election officials behind jail.

According to The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, they planned to imprison state Elections Commission chairperson Ann Jacobs, Racine Mayor Cory Mason, and other officials on Friday.

The court petition was the latest twist in strategy for Michael Gableman, a former state Supreme Court judge who is overseeing the Republicans’ inquiry.

He dropped far-reaching subpoenas filed in January to the immigrant rights group Voces de la Frontera Action three days ago.

Earlier, Gableman’s attorney informed a judge that he sought to avoid imprisoning the mayors of Madison and Green Bay.

This follows the refusal of the elected leaders to meet with the county circuit judge. This may surprise you, but this dude understands a thing or two about strategy.

Gableman ramped up his efforts on Friday, threatening Waukesha County Circuit Judge Ralph Ramirez that if those mayors and others do not come in for closed-door interviews with him, he will imprison them.

Recounts and legal rulings reveal that President Joe Biden won the state by 21,000 votes, but Republicans in the legislature remain concerned about the election.

Jacobs, Mason, Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway, Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich, Madison and Green Bay city clerks, two Milwaukee workers, and information technology personnel from the state Department of Administration and the Elections Commission are among those named in the most recent filing.

Gableman, who is in charge of the inquiry into the state’s 2020 elections, accused two mayors of a “cover-up” and stonewalling the probe in January. Gableman threatened to compel former Facebook employee Michael Spitzer Rubenstein to appear before the Wisconsin Committee on Campaign and Elections.
