Fake electors get tapped as GOP convention delegates

Signage is attached to security fencing ahead of the 2024 Republican National Convention at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee on July 10.

Seven battleground states are sending fake electors and others who worked to upend the 2020 election results to represent their state parties at the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where they will officially anoint Donald Trump as their presidential nominee.

The fake electors and other election deniers identified by CNN include several who are currently facing criminal charges for their efforts in helping Trump try to overturn Joe Biden’s 2020 victory.

The Arizona delegation includes three fake electors who have been charged in that state for their alleged roles in the plot, including state Sen. Jake Hoffman who was recently elected to be a Republican National Committee member. Hoffman has pleaded not guilty.

In Georgia, Amy Kremer – who helped organize the January 6 rally on the Ellipse ahead of the Capitol attack but has not been accused of any criminal activity – was chosen to serve on the Republican National Committee.

Michigan’s delegation counts four individuals facing criminal charges brought by prosecutors in that state. The group includes former Michigan GOP co-chair and fake elector Meshawn Maddock, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges, and state Supreme Court candidate Matthew DePerno, who faces criminal charges for allegedly plotting to access and seize voting machines. DePerno has denied any wrongdoing.

Other fake electors and election deniers who have been tapped as delegates or alternates hail from Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Mexico and Wisconsin, according to lists published by state parties and other documents obtained by CNN.
