Democratic State Senator Patricia Schachtner, one of Wisconsin’s ten electors to cast votes for Joe Biden has been caught breaking election laws.
Schachtner and her husband Joesph appear on the Wisconsin Elections Commission list as being one of the 250,000 voters who signs a statement on their mail-in ballots that they were indefinitely confined to their home because “of age, physical illness or infirmity” or if they are “disabled for an indefinite period.”
The list does not show when Schachtner signed the declaration however her social media account she is anything but infirm.
On August 5, she posted a picture of herself (with no mask on) at the opening of a convenience store.
Almost two months later she posted a picture of herself with her husband ( who also claimed sot be indefinitely confined) “enjoying all the wonderful natural resources that our state has to offer.”
Wisconsin Statute 12.13 states election fraud as making “false statements to the municipal clerk, board of election commissioners, or any other election official whether or not under oath.”
A false statement of indefinite confinement is a false statement to elections officials, and thus could be a Class I felony punishable by 3.5 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
Additionally, making “false statements in order to obtain an absentee ballot” is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine “of not more than $1,000, not more than six-months imprisonment or both.”
On Monday, Shachtner (who lost her re-election bid) was present at the Wisconsin Capitol in Madison Monday to cast her ballot as one of Wisconsin’s ten electors. Those chosen (all Democrats) unanimously gave the state’s electoral votes to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
On Monday, Joe Biden clinched the Electoral college capturing the 270 electoral votes he needs however, Congress still has to approve the vote on January 6th. There is hope among supporters of the President that a GOP Senator will support a Republican Representative and contest the election, it only takes one.
