Yesterday, Peter Bernegger, an investigative reporter affiliated with Election Watch Inc., was arrested in Wisconsin on the same day the state held its primary election.

Bernegger has been diligently uncovering instances of tampering with computerized voting systems and violations of election laws involving numerous prominent Wisconsin officials.

His investigations have honed in on exposing election campaign “smurfs” used to launder multiple small donations for various political candidates.

Notably, his findings have implicated esteemed Democrat figures such as Supreme Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz, Attorney General Josh Kaul, and Governor Tony Evers.

The reason for Peter Bernegger’s arrest was his alleged involvement in “Simulating Legal Process,” a charge that has been scarcely used, with only two instances recorded since 1977.

According to Wisconsin law, this charge entails:

(1g) In this section, “legal process” includes a subpoena, summons, complaint, warrant, injunction, writ, notice, pleading, order or other document that directs a person to perform or refrain from performing a specified act and compliance with which is enforceable by a court or governmental agency.


(a) Except as provided in pars. (b) and (c), whoever sends or delivers to another any document which simulates legal process is guilty of a Class I felony.

(b) If the document under par. (a) is sent or delivered with intent to induce payment of a claim, the person is guilty of a Class H felony.

(c) If the document under par. (a) simulates any criminal process, the person is guilty of a Class H felony.(2) Proof that a document specified under sub. (1r) was mailed or was delivered to any person with intent that it be forwarded to the intended recipient is sufficient proof of sending.

(3) This section applies even though the simulating document contains a statement to the effect that it is not legal process.(4) Violation of this section may be prosecuted in either the county where the document was sent or the county in which it was delivered.

According to Wisconsin H.O.T, Bernegger collaborated with them to submit 50 ethics complaints to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, targeting both Democrat and Republican campaigns for allegedly accepting laundered funds. These complaints were then published on infoccc.com.

Wisconsin H.O.T writes:

Supported by extensive data analysis from FEC and CFIS, Bernegger’s team meticulously documented the illicit contributions. Private investigators confirmed that many donors were falsely attributed, prompting further complaints in over 20 Wisconsin counties. The reports have exposed a web of corruption reaching even the highest levels of state government, including Supreme Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz and Attorney General Josh Kaul.

As the Department of Justice attempts to silence Bernegger, his unwavering commitment to truth and justice will only grow stronger. The lawfare tactics against him will only serve to amplify his voice and bring his investigative research to a wider audience. The arrest of Peter Bernegger is not just an attack on one man but on the fundamental principles of transparency and accountability in our democracy.
