Wait, whose group has focused on fraud claims surrounding the 2020 election, said he stood ready “to be charged for exposing these voting vulnerabilities.”
He has expounded on his actions in multiple media interviews in recent days.
Submitting false information to obtain an absentee ballot and making false statements to election officials are crimes under Wisconsin law. Democrats on the Wisconsin Elections Commission called for the panel to make a criminal referral during an emergency meeting Thursday night.
Ann Jacobs, a Democratic member of the commission, said she was “outraged” that Wait “thinks this is something cute, when what he is doing is committing crimes and bragging about it in an attempt to undermine our voting system.”
Don Millis, the Republican chairman of the commission, said he has “no problem” making a criminal referral but first would like more details.
