A federal lawsuit filed in Green Bay today seeks to disqualify presidential votes in heavily Dem Dane, Menominee and Milwaukee counties, which would swing Wisconsin’s electoral votes to Donald Trump.
The lawsuit seeks to bar the state from certifying Wisconsin’s presidential electors unless results from the three counties are excluded. But the lawsuit provides no concrete evidence of fraud. Instead it levies a series of allegations from people identified only by initials with the promise that more details will be forthcoming after “relevant official documents are final and available.”
Indiana attorney Jim Bopp, one of the lawyers in the case, said similar suits had been filed in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia. All four states went to Joe Biden last week, largely on the strength of his performance via absentee and mail-in ballots.
The alleged fraud listed in the complaint includes one person — identified as CL from Prescott — who claimed that a resident told her he received 10 ballots from the state Elections Commission even though he hadn’t requested them. The Elections Commission doesn’t mail absentee ballots to voters in Wisconsin. They’re sent by local clerks.
