Last week, the Wisconsin Assembly’s Office of Special Counsel (OSC) released records — including previously unseen contract agreements — related to the ongoing partisan review of the 2020 election.
The documents were released as part of American Oversight’s lawsuit seeking public records concerning OSC’s election probe, which is being overseen by lawyer Michael Gableman.
Previously, American Oversight obtained a copy of Gableman’s second amended contract extending his work through April 30, 2022, as well as expense records revealing the number of people employed by Gableman during several months of late 2021. The records released last week contain subcontracts between OSC and various individuals involved in the probe, but similar agreements for some other people publicly known to be working for Gableman are not included.
Included in the records are subcontract agreements for Zak Niemierowicz, Clint Lancaster, Kevin Scott, John Irving, Edward Chaim, and Zoey Hayes. Hayes’ name does not appear to have been previously seen in records obtained by American Oversight or in public reporting about Gableman’s investigation.
Some of the subcontracts appear to be incomplete, with large portions redacted or missing, or reference items like statements of work that are missing from the documents released to American Oversight. In several cases, information about compensation is also not included.
