Wisconsin’s Elections Commission is likely headed for both a political and legal battle over its administrator.
Commission members last night deadlocked on whether to reappoint Meagan Wolfe to a second term as elections chief. Commissioners like Wolfe, but if they approve her for a second term she would then face a vote in the Wisconsin Senate, which she is likely to lose. But deadlocking, the Commission is relying on a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling that says people can serve on a board or commission until a replacement is approved. Commission Chairman Don Millis though said playing that game will only give ‘grifters more ammunition’ to try and paint Wolfe and Wisconsin’s election system as tainted or corrupt.
