Rep. Tim Ramthun
The Wisconsin Assembly on Tuesday voted to withdraw its 10 electors for Brandon in the 2020 presidential election.
The Wisconsin Assembly voted unanimously in a voice vote to in a privileged resolution withdraw its 10 electors for Brandon in the 2020 election.
The voice vote was unanimous and passed the assembly earlier this evening.
The legislation will now move forward to the Rules Committee in the Wisconsin Assembly and to the Wisconsin Senate, bill 743, for immediate confirmation.
The legislation was introduced by Rep. Timothy Ramthun.
How it happened: Assembly rule 43 resolution or joint resolution relating to the officers, members, former members, procedures, or organization of the assembly or legislature is privileged in that it may be offered under any order of business by a member who has the floor and may be taken up immediately before all other proposals, unless referred by the presiding officer to a standing committee or to the calendar.
During the open session, Representative Ramthun called point of order asking to be recognized, after he was given the floor he used Assembly rule 43, to call to get passage for the resolution to the rules committee.
Representative Ramthun asked to suspend rules and have the resolution pulled back however because they were in the 10th it was said to be out if order. The Resolution to take back our 10 electors from the 2020 general election has been passed on to the rules committee, it is alive and today Representative Ramthun showed the people of our country that the Constitution of the United States of America is the law of the land, if you use it.
So for those whom have questioned whether or not Article II, Section 1, Clauses 2 and 3 of the US Constitution gives the Legislature (the closest body to the people) plenary right to oversee elections is accurate and true.
