Wisconsin judge fines elections commissioners $250 per day, orders removal of names from the rolls
An Ozaukee County judge found the state Elections Commission and three of its members in contempt of court Monday, saying they had flouted his December order to remove thousands of people from Wisconsin's voter rolls. "I can’t be any clearer than this," Judge Paul Malloy said. "They need to follow my order."
According to his ruling, Judge Paul Malloy expressed his frustration with the commission's inaction by ordering the state to pay a $50 per day fine, while additionally ordering the three Democrats seated on the board to pay $250 per day fines each, until which time the process of removing the 209,000 names from the voter rolls has begun.
