Election and vaccine conspiracies abound in Assembly Committee on Constitution and Ethics hearing

In a public hearing of the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Constitution and Ethics on Wednesday, Republicans agreed with and shared conspiracy theories and misinformation about a variety of topics, disparaging the state’s election security and the effectiveness of vaccines against COVID-19. 

The committee held hearings on a resolution that would start the process for amending the state constitution’s provision concerning  who is qualified to vote and a bill that would allow people who have been infected with COVID-19 to use their so-called “natural immunity” to bypass vaccine and testing mandates. 

Also on the committee’s agenda was a joint resolution that would call for a convention of states that would propose an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would permanently set the number of justices on the Supreme Court at nine. The committee did not address this resolution.
