MADISON, WIS. (WBAY) – President Donald Trump is asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to throw out thousands of missing votes from Milwaukee County and Dane County.
Donald J. Trump v. Anthony S. Evers was filed on December 1 in the state Supreme Court.
Ballot papers for those missing from the lawsuit were issued to voters who did not fill out the appropriate application and should be excluded from the presidential election results.
On Monday, Governor Tony Evers confirmed the results of the Nov. 3 election after a recount in the counties of Milwaukee and Denmark did not change the results of the presidential race.
On Monday, the Wisconsin Electoral Commission presented the results of the recount, which confirmed that elected president Joe Biden won Wisconsin by about 20,600 votes. Biden received 87 votes from the recount. CLICK HERE to recalculate the documents.
Biden took over Wisconsin’s 10 voter college votes. In total, Biden has 306 voter votes for Trump’s 232 voter votes.
Trump’s lawsuit also alleges that the trustees added missing information to the missing votes, in violation of Wisconsin law.
Trump’s attorneys are also undertaking “Democracy in the Park” events in Madison, in which eyewitnesses claimed poll workers had received ballots and provided certificates.
“While there was a pattern of inappropriate activity that influenced the election, four stand out,” the Wisconsin Supreme Court filed.
Trump’s attorneys said 170,140 missing ballot papers were “incorrectly counted because they were issued without voters first submitting a written request”.
The lawsuit alleges that some 5,517 missing ballot papers were “incorrectly reported because the certificates were incomplete when they arrived at the clerks’ office and the clerks ’offices substantially amended the certificates by inserting the missing information”.
Trump states that 28,395 absentee ballots were counted “that were incorrectly issued by persons claiming indefinite short-term status, even if there was reliable information that [the] … the voter is no longer eligible for service. “
The lawsuit states that 17,271 missing ballot papers were “incorrectly handed over or adopted at Democracy in the Park events”.
“Despite the fact that the law is clearly contrary to this and the petitioners have explicitly objected to the inclusion of ballot papers included in the recount amounts, the Milwaukee County and Danish County Canvassers Boards incorrectly included these ballot papers in the recount amounts. The decisions of the Milwaukee County and Danish County Counselors are directly contrary to applicable Wisconsin statutes and case law and concern an urgent matter of nationwide and national significance. “
Trump is represented by James R. Troupis of Troupis Law Office in Cross Plains and R. George Burnett of Conway, Olejniczak and Jerry of Green Bay.
Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said Trump’s case seeks to disenfranchise thousands of Wisconsin voters.
“He’s not claiming that none of these voters were eligible to vote in Wisconsin,” Kaul says.
The AG has promised to protect “the will of Wisconsin voters”.
Governor Evers praised the work of the recounting lawyers and said the elections were “fair” and “effective”.
“Today, I fulfilled my duty to certify the November 3 election and signed the election ID of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris, as required by state and federal law,” Governor Evers said. “I would like to thank our clerks, our election administrators and our citizens’ opinion polls who have worked tirelessly to hold safe, fair and effective elections. Thank you for all your good work. “
Trump paid $ 3 million for the Wisconsin recount. The state election committee has repeatedly said the election process was transparent and followed Wisconsin laws. Representatives from both parties were able to observe the count and provide live broadcasts. Meagan Wolfe, the Wisconsin election chief, said there was no evidence of fraud.
“Despite this transparency, we have seen unsubstantiated allegations that clerks and polling staff have stopped counting that they have mysteriously found missing ballot papers in the middle of the night, or that all the votes for the missing votes were for only one candidate,” Wolfe said. – It’s just not true.
Trump claimed that the presidential election was “falsified” in states that he did not win. Campaign lawsuits were dismissed due to lack of evidence.
