In the criminal complaint filed on Tuesday, Kenneth Chesebro, Jim Troupis, and Michael Roman, an ex-Trump aide, were each charged with a felony forgery count for their role in attempting to contest the results of the 2020 presidential election.

In a press statement, Kaul stated, “The criminal complaint in this matter alleges that defendants were involved in a conspiracy to submit a certificate of purported votes from individuals who weren’t Wisconsin’s duly elected electors. The Wisconsin Department of Justice is committed to protecting the integrity of our democratic process.”

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers (D) wrote in a Facebook post, “Good.”

Chesebro, Roman, and the former president were among 18 Trump supporters indicted in August 2023 by a Georgia grand jury in relation to the case brought against Trump by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Chesebro entered a guilty plea in October 2023, a few months after Sidney Powell pleaded guilty in a deal with Trump. Powell had contested the results of the election.

Roman filed a complaint in January alleging that Willis was in an “improper relationship” with Nathan Wade, a fellow prosecutor. Wade’s firm had used county funds to pay for Willis’ vacations.

The grand jury indicting or charging alternate electors from states like Arizona, Michigan, and Nevada for their role in contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election is a recent development.
