    https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/... :

    (3) No employer or agent of an employer may distribute to any employee printed matter containing any threat, notice or information that if a particular ticket of a political party or organization or candidate is elected or any referendum question is adopted or rejected, work in the employer's place or establishment will cease, in whole or in part, or the place or establishment will be closed, or the salaries or wages of the employees will be reduced, or other threats intended to influence the political opinions or actions of the employees.
    Penalty is $1000 fine and/or 6 months' imprisonment.

    Only wiggle room is email vs "printed matter", but I rather hope that the courts recognize that the statute dates from 1973 so its intent clearly covers email notices such as these.

    Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.
