New man from London launches his own election investigation | Wisconsin News
MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) – A New London man has launched his own review of the 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday that Peter Bernegger was reviewing ballot papers in communities across the state, including Westport and Verona.
Robert Anderson, assistant clerk at Westport, said Bernegger wanted to review more than 3,000 ballots cast there. Bernegger and three others spent about four hours there last month scanning copies of devices they brought with them, Anderson said. Verona city administrator Adam Sayre said Bernegger and several others spent half a day scanning ballot papers from a parish.
Bernegger sued Door County clerk Jill Lau in May for copying election papers. A judge has yet to rule on the case.
Bernegger told the Sentinel journal that he worked with people of different political backgrounds but declined to disclose whether he was a Republican or a Democrat.
An online editorial, published under Bernegger’s name in March, questioned the reliability of the Wisconsin election, claiming the contest was rigged because large numbers of people showed up to the polls and were told they had already voted, though they hadn’t.
Prosecutors found no evidence of widespread fraud in Wisconsin, and a recount confirmed that Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump.
