MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's top election official and Republican legislators are going back and forth over the issue of voter fraud and the integrity of the election process.
Government Accountability Board director Kevin Kennedy says in a letter to Republican legislative leaders that continued unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud unnecessarily undermine the confidence of voters.
He sent a letter Friday in response to a letter earlier from Republican state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald and five other GOP leaders.
They say in the letter to Kennedy that problems in the 21st state Senate district recall election raise "serious questions regarding the integrity of our election process," but Kennedy says there is "little benefit in promoting unsubstantiated allegations."
The lawmakers wrote a response Friday, saying next year they plan to "correct the problems that have been discovered and restore the integrity of our election process."
