Wood County GOP joins Iowa Co. in claiming Assembly Speaker was unfair to an election conspiracy theorist.

Another county branch of the Republican Party in Wisconsin is publicly slamming Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and demanding his “constituents begin the process of removing him from office.”

The Wood County Republican Party put out a statement criticizing the state’s most powerful Republican for what it called a “disregard of the clear facts throughout the various investigations of the fraudulent election of 2020,” an election that was not fraudulent despite far-from-clear allegations and conspiracy theories being floated for more than a year by supporters of former President Donald Trump.

The statement endorses an earlier call from the Iowa County Republican Party that Vos step down.

Specifically, Vos’ critics are angry that he took away a staff member from Rep. Timothy Ramthun (R-Campbellsport), whose QAnon-adjacent rhetoric and extralegal proposal for the state to recall its electoral votes for President Joe Biden won him Trump’s adoration as outlined in a new Rolling Stone article about the many ways Wisconsin Republicans are targeting voting rights and seeking ways to overturn election results they don’t like.

“These misguided actions by Speaker Vos and the fact that he continues to impede the investigations and ignoring the will of the people effectively demands his removal from both the Speaker’s chair and from the Assembly,” the Wood County GOP said in its statement.
