Election Integrity Journalist ARRESTED On Day Of Wisconsin Primary — Charged With Rare Crime

This morning, investigative reporter Peter Bernegger of Election Watch was arrested in Wisconsin, on the day of the state’s election primary.

Bernegger has been actively exposing how computerized voting systems are tampered with and election law violations involving many top Wisconsin officials.

Specifically, he has focused on uncovering election campaign “smurfs” who allegedly used to launder multiple small donations to various political candidates.

His work has implicated high-ranking Democrat individuals like Supreme Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz, Attorney General Josh Kaul, and Governor Tony Evers.

Take a look at the breaking news:

Now, what was the reason for his arrest, exactly?

Peter Bernegger was booked for allegedly “Simulating Legal Process” — a rare charge that has only been used TWICE since 1977.

Here’s what that charge means, per Wisconsin law:

(1g) In this section, “legal process” includes a subpoena, summons, complaint, warrant, injunction, writ, notice, pleading, order or other document that directs a person to perform or refrain from performing a specified act and compliance with which is enforceable by a court or governmental agency.

    (a) Except as provided in pars. (b) and (c), whoever sends or delivers to another any document which simulates legal process is guilty of a Class I felony.
    (b) If the document under par. (a) is sent or delivered with intent to induce payment of a claim, the person is guilty of a Class H felony.
    (c) If the document under par. (a) simulates any criminal process, the person is guilty of a Class H felony.
(2) Proof that a document specified under sub. (1r) was mailed or was delivered to any person with intent that it be forwarded to the intended recipient is sufficient proof of sending.
(3) This section applies even though the simulating document contains a statement to the effect that it is not legal process.
(4) Violation of this section may be prosecuted in either the county where the document was sent or the county in which it was delivered.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a whole crock of BS to me…
Here’s a video shared by Mike Lindell of an interview with Peter Bernegger, where he explained how Democrats are using electronic voting systems to cheat:

The Gateway Pundit has more details on Bernegger’s arrest and history of exposing election law violations:
Last night, Peter Bernegger was arrested by the Dane County Sheriff’s office and booked this morning for “Simulating Legal Process.”  According to Wisconsin H.O.T’s Telegram page, there have only been two convictions for this crime since 1977.
Bernegger teamed up with Wisconsin H.O.T “to file 50 ethics complaints with the Wisconsin Elections Commission against both Democrats and Republican campaigns for allegedly accepting laundered funds and published the complaints [at],” according to Wisconsin H.O.T.
Wisconsin H.O.T writes:

Supported by extensive data analysis from FEC and CFIS, Bernegger’s team meticulously documented the illicit contributions. Private investigators confirmed that many donors were falsely attributed, prompting further complaints in over 20 Wisconsin counties. The reports have exposed a web of corruption reaching even the highest levels of state government, including Supreme Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz and Attorney General Josh Kaul.

As the Department of Justice attempts to silence Bernegger, his unwavering commitment to truth and justice will only grow stronger. The lawfare tactics against him will only serve to amplify his voice and bring his investigative research to a wider audience. The arrest of Peter Bernegger is not just an attack on one man but on the fundamental principles of transparency and accountability in our democracy.

The ethics complaints filed by Bernegger include some notable names.  Janet Protaziewicz is alleged to have received $1.4M and $12.3M in “alleged false donations” and “alleged campaign violations”, respectively.  The complaint claims that she received 57.33% in contributions from out-of-state funds.

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul also had an ethics complaint filed against him, as did Governor Tony Evers and several other state politicians and Democrat and Republican organizations.

So, what do you think?

Is Bernegger being silenced?

Will there be more arrests like this to come leading up to November?…
