On the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack, American democracy is again in danger.
This threat is domestic and is an even bigger threat to American democracy.
When voters elect someone, politicians can’t overturn it just because they want to stay in power. The threat by Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to impeach newly-elected Janet Protasiewicz is a desperate, unconstitutional, unprecedented, and obscene power grab to erase the votes of a million Wisconsinites from this spring’s election and lock in ultra- gerrymandered maps, the near-total abortion ban, and the power to overturn the 2024 presidential election. Salon magazine calls it 'Another MAGA coup against democracy'.
What is the connection between the Wisconsin MAGA coup attempt and the deadly insurrection on Jan 6th to overturn the Presidential election results? Follow the money with this relationship chart? See how billionaires rig the system with Republican help and try to overturn the election results if they don't like how working Americans have voted?
Stop billionaire funded Republicans from overturning the will of the people
"When voters elect someone, politicians can’t overturn the election to stay in power. That principle is as American as apple pie and the 4th of July. Wisconsinites elected Justice Janet Protasiewicz by an 11-point margin in April, ushering in a new era of democracy in Wisconsin. Now, Assembly speaker Robin Vos is threatening to undo it all by illegally impeaching Justice Protasiewicz—all before she’s heard a single case on the bench. This is an unprecedented threat. No state official has ever been convicted and removed from office by the Wisconsin State Senate. Let Robin Vos and Republicans in the Wisconsin State Legislature that this attempt to nullify the last election is absolutely unacceptable.
In 2020, Wisconsin came the closest of any state to overturning presidential election results. A single vote on the Court stopped Republicans from overturning President Biden’s victory in Wisconsin. In 2024, Republicans could try again—and without Justice Protasiewicz on the bench, their next effort to thwart democracy could be successful. The risk is too high—we must stop this threat now before it goes any further. This impeachment threat is a desperate, unconstitutional, unprecedented, and obscene power grab to erase the votes of a million Wisconsinites and lock in their gerrymandered maps, the near-total abortion ban, and the plot to overturn the 2024 presidential election."
Uihlein was also a major donor to other groups affiliated with rally organizers
He contributed to the Women for Trump hybrid PAC affiliated with Women for America First. Uilehin was the top 2020 election donor to the super PAC affiliated with Tea Party Patriots, another rally organizer. Uihlein has given the Tea Party Patriots super PAC about $4.3 million since the 2016 election.
Turning Point has received more than $1 million from Uihlein’s family foundation, including $250,000 in 2019. Turning Point USA paid about $500,000 to Rally Forge LLC during its most recent fiscal year. Turning Point USA and Turning Point Action, the 501(c)(4) arm of Turning Point that was officially listed as an organizer on the rally website, collectively paid another $1 million to Rally Forge LLC disclosed in their 2018-2019 tax returns obtained by Open Secrets.
"More than $9 of every $10 megadonors Dick Uihlein and his wife Liz have contributed directly to congressional candidates running in the midterms have gone to Republicans who cast doubt on President Joe Biden’s victory in 2020. The $6,413,666 in contributions went directly to the 59 candidates’ victory funds, leadership PACs and single-candidate super PACs. That includes $3,830,300 to support Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson’s reelection bid — $3 million from Dick Uihlein and $500,000 from Liz Uihlein to Wisconsin Truth PAC, in addition to contributions to the Ron Johnson Victory Fund and Johnson’s campaign itself." - Chicago Sun Times
