Judge to hear arguments Monday on intervening in GOP election hearings

MADISON, Wis. – A Dane Co. judge will hear arguments Monday as to whether the courts should intervene in the GOP-led review of the 2020 election.

Attorney General Josh Kaul has brought the case forward, asking for the subpoenas brought by attorney Michael Gableman as part of the review to be invalidated.

Kaul is also asking that Gableman be forced to conduct all interviews in public.

If the judge rules in Kaul’s favor, only the subpoena issued to the Wisconsin Elections Commission would be invalidated.

However, the subpoenas for the mayors and election officials of five other cities, including in Madison, would be impacted.
