A new lawsuit accuses Wisconsin’s Republican U.S. Senator and two congressmen of aiding an insurrection.
Minocqua Brewing Company owner Kirk Bangstad filed the suit yesterday. He says Senator Ron Johnson and congressmen Scott Fitzgerald and Tom Tiffany “conspired” to aid an “insurrection” by questioning the 2020 presidential election. Bangstad said their public comments spread “malicious falsehoods.”
Bangstad wants all three banned from running for office again based on the 14th Amendment’s language that was written to keep former Confederates out of Congress. Johnson calls the lawsuit “total nonsense.”
