Three weeks ago, Labor Radio reported how an investigator in the Republican-controlled Wisconsin State Assembly had issued Voces de la Frontera Action, the mandated political arm of the Milwaukee-based immigrant rights organization Voces de la Frontera, sweeping demands for internal documents. In 2021, the Republican-controlled Wisconsin State Assembly authorized over half a million dollars to pay Michael Gableman to, it said, investigate the results of the 2020 presidential election between Donald Trump and Joseph Biden, an election won by Biden. Here is attorney Richard Saks, a board member of Voces de la Frontera, describing what looks like good news for Voces this week.
There were different reasons why the Gableman commission may have withdrawn its request, but they are likely related to the weakness of its position, explains Saks.
The Gableman investigation is still continuing, and, now that Voces de la Frontera has been dragged into the fight, Voces will continue to oppose that commission’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Saks had filed a motion for Voces to intervene on behalf of the Wisconsin Election Commission, itself fighting a Gableman subpoena, and on February 2nd that motion was granted in Dane County District Court. Saks says that listeners can also take a stand.
That was attorney Richard Saks, explaining how, earlier this week, the so-called Gableman commission investigators said they would no longer force the subpoena issued last month to the immigrant rights organization Voces de la Frontera Action, a legal victory for Voces.
