President Trump’s campaign is fighting in multiple states to make sure only legal votes were counted in the 2020 election.
That battle took a surprising turn.
And Donald Trump couldn’t believe this court ruling about one state’s electoral votes.
In a four to three decision the Wisconsin State Supreme Court rejected the Trump campaign’s challenge to 200,000 mail-in ballots.
Joe Biden carried Wisconsin by 20,000 votes so this lawsuit had the potential to reverse the outcome in the Badger State.
But four justices—the three liberals and one conservative—refused to grant the Trump campaign the relief the President’s lawyers thought they earned.
The justices argued that the Trump campaign filed their lawsuit too late and needed to challenge Wisconsin’s changes to its mail-in voting rules prior to Election Day.
“The challenges raised by the Campaign in this case, however, come long after the last play or even the last game; the Campaign is challenging the rulebook adopted before the season began. Election claims of this type must be brought expeditiously. The Campaign waited until after the election to raise selective challenges that could have been raised long before the election. We conclude the challenge to indefinitely confined voter ballots is without merit, and that laches bars relief on the remaining three categories of challenged ballots. The Campaign is not entitled to relief, and therefore does not succeed in its effort to strike votes and alter the certified winner of the 2020 presidential election,” the majority opinion stated.
Chief Justice Patience Roggensack accused the four justices of using the fig leaf of when the Trump campaign filed their lawsuit to cover for their cowardice.
Justice Roggensack wrote that the majority “does not bother addressing what the boards of canvassers did or should have done, and instead, four members of this court throw the cloak of (timing) over numerous problems that will be repeated again and again, until this court has the courage to correct them.”
President Trump’s lawyers have presented evidence in the form of sworn affidavits from witnesses testifying to what they saw as evidence of widespread voter fraud and irregularities.
But courts across the country refused to consider this evidence and have repeatedly ruled against the President and his campaign.
The Wisconsin State Supreme Court was the latest court to reject the President’s claims.
Chief Justice Roggensack ripped this streak of cowardice infecting the judiciary by attacking her colleagues’ refusal to tackle the merits of the case and instead focus on process issues to avoid taking a clear stand on the issue of election integrity.
If judges will not hear the President out on his arguments then Joe Biden will become President under dubious circumstances where half the country will not accept his legitimacy.
