Rep. Tim Ramthun addresses “misinformation from Assembly leadership”

January 21, 2022 – Campbellsport, WI – There was definitely an inner-party kerfuffle this week in Madison as Republican lawmakers brought some drama to the public eye with accusations coming from both sides.

Over the past year Assembly Rep. Tim Ramthun (R-Campbellsport) has been efforting to pull the curtain back on election issues such as drop boxes, ballot harvesting, and an overall review of election integrity.

In the summer of 2021 State Assembly Speaker Robin Vos took aim at similar election questions and hired former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman to review the presidential election.

Ramthun and his staffer Tristan Johannes regularly publish updates on their findings and this week it was confirmed Vos sanctioned Ramthun’s office and reassigned his aide Johannes.

There was some back-and-forth accusations by Vos regarding Ramthun’s claims. Below is a follow-up response from Ramthun.

Rep. Ramthun: Assembly Leadership Spreading Misinformation

MADISON – State Representative Timothy Ramthun (R-Campbellsport) released the following statement in response to Leadership’s press release on “misinformation”:

“Republican Leadership posted a statement on 1/20/22 to offer apparent justification for the abrupt transfer of my fulltime staff requisition that occurred the prior day. The statement indicated my office, specifically me and my fulltime staffer, were putting out ‘misinformation’ regarding Speaker Vos working with Hillary Clinton attorneys.

Upon review of all written and posted communications by my office, including those most recent in an email of election evidence sent to the Legislature, there is no indication of me or my office making such a statement.

If your claim is your justification for reassigning my staff, and it is not true, he should
be dutifully returned.”

“We agree a better job of listening and communication is needed, citing specifics and refraining from speculation and wrongfully accusing, should be our shared priority in the pursuit of truth. To add misinformation to my statements, remove my staff and not address the evidence I have presented, only deflects from his ‘wholehearted’ support for the use of 500 illegal drop boxes in Wisconsin.”
