Pro-Trump group asks Wisconsin Supreme Court to void Biden’s victory in that state
Although President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College victories in Michigan, Pennsylvania and other battleground states have been certified, President Donald Trump and many of his Republican allies are still refusing to accept the election results — and in Wisconsin, the right-wing and pro-Trump Wisconsin Voters Alliance is asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to void Biden's victory in that Rust Belt state.
With its lawsuit, the Wisconsin Voters Alliance is hoping to prevent the Wisconsin Elections Commission from certifying the election results. And the group is asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take up that case.
Journalist Dan Plutchak, reporting for the ABC-affiliated WKOW in Wisconsin, explains that the group is hoping to prevent the Wisconsin Elections Commission "from certifying the election so that the Republican-controlled state legislature could pick the representatives to the Electoral College. The lawsuit also would require Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat, to certify those electors."
According to Plutchak, "Attorneys are asking the court for emergency action to take up the case. The court has ordered the Wisconsin Election's Commission to respond to the request for the Supreme Court to take up the case by 4 p.m Friday. The lawsuit comes as both Dane and Milwaukee Counties are in the process of recounting ballots in the presidential race."
