Congressman Sean Duffy (R-WI) told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that Democrats are trying to stall the vote recount in Wisconsin so that it is not completed before the December 13 deadline, robbing Donald Trump of the electoral votes from that state.
All of the votes in Wisconsin have to be certified by December 13 before electors meet on December 19 to formally cast their votes.
Wisconsin is almost certain to miss that deadline given that a previous recount for a state Supreme Court contest, where just 1.5 million votes were cast, took more than a month to complete.
“They can actually thwart the will of the Wisconsin voters and prohibit our electors to go to cast their votes on December 19th,” said Duffy, adding that a similar stunt would have to be pulled in Michigan and Pennsylvania to bring Trump below the 270 electoral votes he requires to become president.
Duffy noted that Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton operatives in Dane County Wisconsin, where liberal Madison is located, are deliberately slowing down the vote counting process (primarily by doing a hand recount) in an effort to disenfranchise Wisconsin electors from being able to cast their votes for Trump.
Duffy added that there were no signs of vote fraud in Wisconsin and that ballot counting machines were not connected to the Internet.
