Racine County Sheriff Schmaling says he will announce “proof of state-wide election law violations” at a news conference on October 28, 2021.
The sheriff announced the news conference in a press release posted to the department’s Facebook page.
“SHERIFF TO ANNOUNCE PROOF OF STATE-WIDE ELECTION LAW VIOLATIONS,” it is headlined.
“Members of the media and the press are invited to attend a news conference where Sheriff Christopher Schmaling will unveil the results of an extensive investigation with implications throughout Racine County and Wisconsin. At the conclusion of the presentation, Sheriff Schmaling and the lead investigator will be available to answer questions and provide documentation. The news conference will be on Thursday, October 28, 2021, at 11:00 a.m., at the Sheriff’s sub-station, which is located at 14116 Washington Ave., Sturtevant, WI. The news conference is open to the press/media only. The news conference will also be available on the Sheriff’s Facebook page.”
We will update you on what he announces.
Racine has been a focal point of election controversies. Racine is one of the “cities that received grant money in 2020 from a group called the Center for Tech and Civic Life, an organization funded by (Facebook founder Mark) Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan,” WPR previously reported. Those Facebook-funded grants, which also turned up in Green Bay and Milwaukee, have been very controversial. It’s not clear whether Schmaling’s announcement has anything to do with that, though.
