Wisconsin is one of the critical states that is still in flux where the 2020 General Election is concerned. The state must execute a mandatory recount because the vote totals in the presidential race were so close. And some residents feel that recount is disenfranchising their votes.
Three voters in Wisconsin have joined in filing a federal lawsuit that seeks to exclude November 3, 2020, election results in three of the state’s most populated counties, counties that leaned heavily toward Democrat Joe Biden.
The lawsuit claims that there exists “sufficient evidence that illegal votes were counted” in the counties of Milwaukee, Dane, and Menominee “to change or place in doubt the results” of the presidential election in those counties.
The plaintiffs asked the court to rule that the results in those counties, because they cannot be detached from the suspicion that massive vote fraud and ballot tampering took place, “must be invalidated.” To that end, the lawsuit seeks to block all three counties from certifying their results.
“Certifying presidential electors without excluding certain counties would violate voters’ fundamental right to vote by vote-dilution disenfranchisement,” the suit said, citing the First and 14th Amendment protections.
The lawsuit goes on to state that, “Because illegal votes dilute legal votes, the evidence establishes, and will establish, that the rights of voters have been violated by vote-dilution disenfranchisement. Consequently, the presidential election results from the counties identified should not be included in certified and reported totals for presidential electors from this state.”
The litigation, if successful, would render over 792,000 votes cast across the state invalid and expunged from the vote totals.
