Kandiss Taylor hopes to be the next Governor of the state of Georgia, and she believes the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump. Like many of her cohort, she’s still, nearly two years later, pushing the false narrative, along with unsupported fantasies that this will somehow be ‘fixed’ and the ousted ex-president will be restored to power.
Taylor is no stranger to conspiracy theories, and she’s embraced this one fully, from the beginning, and hasn’t let go of it yet. Now, she seems to genuinely believe that the state of Wisconsin has begun a process to decertify their election results — something that election law experts have repeatedly explained actually cannot happen.
It’s happening! Decertification in Wisconsin 🙏🏻

What’s the basis for this claim?
Well, it’s true that Wisconsin’s legislature hired someone — former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman — to carry out an investigation of the election, and that after doing so, he recommended that the Legislature “take a very hard look at the option of decertification.”
As Politico reports, it’s also true that he had openly espoused Trump’s Big Lie of election fraud before he ever started the ‘invetigation’ — which kind of fails the bias test.
More importantly, Taylor perhaps didn’t bother to listen to the rest of the hearing or follow the results, other than this recommendation by a GOP-led group.
If so, she’d know that an attorney for the Legislature established again during the hearing that there is no provision in law for doing so, and that Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R) later affirmed that he believes the Legislature’s attorneys are correct — essentially putting the notion to bed yet again.
