President Donald Trump appealed to the Supreme Court to declare the election results in the state of Wisconsin “unconstitutional and void” and order the appointment of state electors.
“In Wisconsin, security barriers against fraud were repeatedly lowered by unelected bureaucrats, who changed the rules on election eve without authority to do so,” said President Trump’s attorney, Bill Bock, according to The Federalist Dec. 31.
Since the votes challenged because of administrative irregularities substantially exceeded the 20,682 votes with which Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was certified, Trump would be the legal winner.
Bock added, “We ask the Court to declare these last-minute changes unconstitutional and to conclude that they make it impossible to determine which candidate received the most valid votes.
The appeal cites as unconstitutional the “implementation of unauthorized and illegal drop boxes and forcing poll workers to make illegal corrections to dropbox certificates.
Also, “the widespread misuse by voters of the status of ‘indefinite confinement’ in circumvention of voter identification laws,” in addition to the continued counting of “invalid” votes after Nov. 3.
Also, Trump seeks to make the ruling effective quickly by requesting that the Supreme Court consider the case expeditiously and resolve it before Jan. 6, the day Congress will meet to assign the presidency to the winner of the election.
Trump comes to the highest court after these petitions were dismissed at lower levels to ensure the electoral transparency that Americans deserve.
“We must restore the integrity of our process through every legally and constitutionally viable mechanism. The United States has seen the extent of corruption in this election and is demanding a swift resolution,” said attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, according to state media Wispolitics.
In the controversial presidential election of 2020, the widespread perception is that the Democrats ‘stole’ the results. In the face of the courts’ refusal to act on them, some 140 congressmen refuse to certify the results.
“We refuse to certify a stolen election,” Republican Congresswoman-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said in part of her remarks in an interview with Breitbart on Dec. 30.
She added: “As members of Congress, it is our duty to protect the integrity of our elections.
