Wis­con­sin DOJ asks judge to block GOP from remov­ing elec­tion offi­cial while law­suit unfolds

Assis­tant Attor­ney Gen­er­al at the Wis­con­sin Depart­ment of Jus­tice, Char­lotte Gib­son, filed a request to a judge ask­ing for an order to block Repub­li­cans from remov­ing Wis­con­sin Elec­tions Com­mis­sion Admin­is­tra­tor Mea­gan Wolfe from her post as a law­suit plays out.
“Fur­ther offi­cial actions by Defen­dants to remove or attempt to remove Mea­gan Wolfe from the Admin­is­tra­tor posi­tion, includ­ing appoint­ing an inter­im Admin­is­tra­tor of the Wis­con­sin Elec­tions Com­mis­sion, do not have legal effect, sub­ject to a final deci­sion of this Court,” the pro­posed order reads, echo­ing fil­ings from Wis­con­sin Attor­ney Gen­er­al Josh Kaul who argues there is no vacan­cy to fill.
