A Trempealeau County supervisor could face prosecution for providing false information on his nomination papers for next month’s election.
Published reports say Supervisor Rodney Severson provided nine invalid signatures on nomination papers filed with the county in January
His name has since been removed from the ballot, according to an investigation by the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board.
Severson says he won’t fight the decision. He had the option to appeal the ruling.
Severson filed his nomination papers in early January with 28 signatures. According to the board’s findings, former supervisor Sheree Nelson challenged Severson’s papers within a week, saying that as many as 15 signatures were invalid.
