The right wing activist and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is set to attend an event in Sturtevant on Saturday to promote the ongoing effort to recall Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester). 

The effort is run by a number of local figures who have been some of the state’s most active election conspiracy theorists. The opposition to Vos stems from his refusal to bring a resolution for the impeachment of Wisconsin Elections Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe to the floor of the Assembly for a vote. 

The divide among Republican lawmakers over the Wolfe impeachment resolution has spilled out into public recently, with Rep. Janel Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls) being found out of order during a recent floor session for attempting to force a vote on the resolution. 

Several Racine-area activists started the effort to recall Vos, citing a number of actions they believe have not sufficiently protected the state’s election system from fraud. The group must gather about 7,000 signatures to force a recall election against Vos. 

The group is holding a rally on Sunday in an effort to collect more signatures, with Lindell headlining the event. 

“Robin Vos has blocked our efforts to secure our elections,” Lindell wrote on social media. “Wisconsin help our country and Recall Vos.”
