YOU'VE BEEN SERVED: Missing Computers Sought From Assembly Leader in WisGOP Election-Rigging Scandal

Subpoenas are being served to top Republicans to find missing computers that could hold the key to the illegal efforts by Scott Walker and the Wisconsin GOP to rig elections.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that plaintiffs in the suit caused subpoenas to be served to Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and were planned for Republican Senate Leader Scott Fitzgerald.

A federal appellate panel has already severely admonished Republicans, and the law firm connected to Scott Walker, for withholding records in the lawsuit against the redistricting plan that in November resulted in Republican majorities, even though Democrats received some 200,000 more votes in Assembly races, and won big majorities in statewide contests.

"If Scott Walker's Republicans have done nothing illegal, they should have no problem producing the missing computers immediately. Their redistricting efforts have already been found illegal and now it appears they are going to ground to avoid accountability. From Scott Walker to Paul Ryan to Robin Vos, we have seen a pattern where the Republicans are a law unto themselves, willing to compromise 100 years of Wisconsin's faith in good government," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Monday.

"Scott Walker and his Republicans must produce the missing computers immediately."
