Donald Trump’s legal team has been battling the election results in many key states. They haven’t won every battle, but they continue to make progress.
Evidence emerges every day that something fishy went on during the ballot counting in several states. And his team has appeared before state legislatures to make their case.
Now, Trump is personally getting involved to protect our elections’ integrity.
Today President Donald J. Trump filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission, et. al. in his personal capacity as a candidate for re-election to the office of President of the United States. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Division.
President Trump has filed a lawsuit against Wisconsin’s elections commission. The complaint alleges that the commission committed “unlawful and unconstitutional acts” during the election.
The lawsuit also names the Mayors of Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha, Green Bay, and Racine as also allegedly involved in these acts.
The president’s suit is seeking state officials to follow state election laws, which he believes Democrats in WI ignored or undermined.
The lawsuit claims that the election commission undercut the state’s photo identification laws. It also says the mayors of those cities allowed unmanned absentee drop boxes, which did not provide “chain of custody standards” and other security measures.
Trump’s lead counsel also accused these state leaders of trying to change the rules “at the last minute,” suggesting they were trying to seek their own interests.
From state to state, we’ve heard of Democrat election officials may have allowed unusual or last-minute changes to allow for late ballots, ballots with no signature-matching, or other measures that were not secure.
Those changes could easily allow less-than-legal ballots from being counted.
Trump’s lawsuit is seeking the state’s legislatures to look into what the president is calling abuse. State legislatures are the ones who vote to assign electors to a candidate.
They have the final say in who actually wins the presidency. If Trump can convince Wisconsin’s lawmakers that he is right (along with lawmakers in other states), he could still re-election.
Do you think President Trump should keep fighting?
- Trump is personally suing Wisconsin election officials and various mayors.
- He accuses these officials of changing rules and allowing measures that undermined the election.
- He is calling on state legislatures to “take up the battle.”
