Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in "Capitol Notes."

There’s been a whirlwind of developments in former State Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman’s quest to investigate the 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin. Gableman abruptly canceled plans last week to interview the mayors and election clerks of the state’s five largest cities, just days after he subpoenaed them.

The mayors and election clerks were told to appear at an office outside of Milwaukee later this month for questioning and to turn over documents related to the election. Then later, Gableman reportedly notified everyone that the interviews were off.

In this week’s Capitol Notes conversation, JR Ross of discusses the status of the investigation with WUWM’s Marti Mikkelson.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
