WKOW 27's Capitol bureau chief A.J. Bayatpour asked Rebecca Kleefisch, a "Wisconsin-proud conservative mom" running for governor, if she'd sign a bill to "reject or overturn the popular vote results in a statewide election."
The only correct answer to a question like that, at least in a non-fascist country, is "Hell no."
But Ms. Kleefisch is apparently not a fan of democracy or the Constitution so she can't say that.
A.J. Bayatpour: Looking ahead, with election policy being something that will be on the ballot potentially next November, is there any scenario where you could envision yourself as governor signing legislation ahead of 2024 that would allow the legislature to reject or overturn the popular vote results in a statewide election?
Rebecca Kleefisch: I haven't seen any bill language even pertaining to that, A.J., so I think it would probably be awfully premature for me to comment on a bill that hasn't even been drafted nor an idea that I've heard floated.
A.J. Bayatpour: But it's is something that some people have mentioned as a possible concern not only in Wisconsin, but other states, the idea of a legislature overturning the popular vote, if, hypothetically, that were to become a bill and ended up on your desk today, what do you say you would do with that bill?
Rebecca Kleefisch: Let's begin — I'm just gonna say you're talking about an idea that I have never heard discussed among legislators, or even the folks I'm talking to across the state. And so for me to try and comment on future bill language that hasn't even been drafted, I think would be awfully premature and kind of irresponsible.
