Trump Supporters in Nevada and Wisconsin Brought to Justice Over “Fake Electors” Scheme

HeadlineDec 08, 2023

A Nevada grand jury has indicted six fake Trump electors who falsely claimed Trump won the 2020 vote in Nevada. They face felony charges with penalties that could see them sentenced to up to five years in prison.

In Wisconsin, 10 pro-Trump Republicans involved in their state’s “fake elector” scheme admitted Biden won Wisconsin in 2020, as part of a legal settlement. The agreement compels the 10 fake electors to cooperate with the Justice Department’s investigations into Trump’s election fraud and the January 6 Capitol insurrection.
