Wisconsin citizens filed a federal lawsuit to stop the certification of the Nov. 3 presidential election results in three counties in the state. If successful, the filing, which exposes a number of serious cases of voter fraud, would invalidate more than 792,000 votes that helped put Democratic candidate Joe Biden ahead of President Donald Trump.
The lawsuit, filed on Nov. 12, alleges that there is “sufficient evidence that illegal votes were counted” in Milwaukee, Dane, and Menominee counties. The three citizens who are serving as plaintiffs claim that the magnitude of this count is such that it could change or call into question the results of the presidential election in these counties.
That is why they are asking the courts to declare that the counties’ results “should be invalidated” to prevent the counties from certifying the results.
It is worth mentioning that the three counties reported show a marked bias toward the Democratic Party (in total Biden has a 365,289 vote advantage over President Trump).
In Wisconsin as a whole, Biden’s lead over President Trump is much narrower: just 0.7 percent (about 20,540 votes).
The day after the election, the Trump campaign had already reported several irregularities in the state and requested a recount.
“There have been reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties that raise serious doubts about the validity of the results” said Bill Stepien, President Trump’s campaign manager for 2020 presidential campaign on Nov. 4.

The lawsuit states, “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.”
Specifically, the plaintiffs emphasized that there is a large risk of fraud surrounding mail-in ballots. They claimed that fraud occurs more with mailed ballots than with ballots in person.
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, Green Bay Division. The plaintiffs are from Door County, Brown County, and Oconto County.
Several media outlets declared Democratic candidate Joe Biden president-elect on Nov. 7. President Trump has alleged election fraud and said any declaration of victory is premature. His campaign filed multiple legal challenges in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and Michigan.
States have until Dec. 8 to resolve election disputes and certify presidential electors. Electoral College votes will be cast on Dec. 14. Therefore, the plaintiffs are seeking an expedited decision from the courts.
