WPR: Gubernatorial candidate Rebecca Kleefisch sues Wisconsin Elections Commission.
The lawsuit asks the state’s highest court to take the case immediately, bypassing lower courts that would typically handle such matters first. It argues guidance related to absentee ballot drop boxes, polling place locations and voting in nursing homes violated state laws on the subjects and should be changed ahead of the state’s 2022 election.
The issues were recently surfaced in a nonpartisan audit of election administration in the state. The audit found no widespread fraud or wrongdoing that would have altered election results, but made more than two dozen recommendations for updates to elections commission policies and state laws governing elections.
Reason: Two teens charged with murder for "killing" an eight-year-old girl police shot to death.
Neither Angelo "A.J." Ford, 16, nor Hasein Strand, 18, fired that fatal shot. A police officer did, but the two teens were charged under the concept of transferred intent, which allows the state to prosecute someone for a crime he didn't technically commit if it happened during the commission of a related offense.
