Wisconsin GOP leader defends keeping election records secret

Wisconsin Legislature

Wisconsin Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos is defending not releasing documents related to an ongoing investigation he ordered into the 2020 election.

Vos says he believes the election was “tainted” but that President Joe Biden won.

Earlier this month, a judge ordered Vos to release records requested by a liberal group under the state’s open records law. The group, American Oversight, filed a second lawsuit on Tuesday seeking records solely in Vos’s possession.

Vos said Tuesday that turning over records now would be like an investigator looking into a murder putting out what he knows before his work is done.
