Door County part of election recount quest

A New London man has taken it upon himself to look into last November’s presidential election and is including Door County in his search.


In a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel report over the weekend, Peter Bernegger wrote in his lawsuit against Door County Clerk Jill Lau that he asked to inspect and take photos of hard drives, memory sticks, election manuals, vote tabulations, and other documents. He was granted access to some but not all of the items he requested. Bernegger filed his lawsuit on May 27th with the county. The county issued an affirmative defense, or a legal argument defending their liability in a lawsuit, on June 16th. Bernegger amended his request a day later and provided evidence on June 25th. The county responded with another answer and affirmative defense last Friday. Judge D. Todd Ehlers is presiding over the case.


Lau declined to comment on the matter, instead directing it towards her attorney Andrew Jones. He could not be reached Tuesday morning.
