President Trump’s legal team has filed a lawsuit with the Wisconsin Supreme Court alleging abuse of absentee ballots affected nearly 221,000 ballots. The lawsuit was filed after Gov. Tony Evers formally certified the state’s election results for Democrat Joe Biden.

The Daily Wire reports:

“Today’s suit includes four cases with clear evidence of unlawfulness, such as illegally altering absentee ballot envelopes, counting ballots that had no required application, overlooking unlawful claims of indefinite confinement, and holding illegal voting events called Democracy in the Park. These unlawful actions affected no less than approximately 221,000 ballots out of over the three million ballots cast in Wisconsin,” the campaign said in a statement.

“The Wisconsin Elections Commission directed municipal clerks to illegally alter incomplete absentee ballot envelopes contrary to Wisconsin law. Clerks were instructed that they could rely on their own ‘personal knowledge,’ or unspecified ‘lists or databases at his or her disposal’ to add in missing information on returned absentee ballots. Under Wisconsin law, incomplete absentee ballots must be corrected by the voter, and only the voter or they may not be counted,” said the campaign.

Wisconsin recently concluded a partial recount in the state, looking into Milwaukee and Dane counties, requested by the Trump campaign. According to the campaign, the counties had “the worst irregularities” in ballots. Upon completion of the recount, Biden was still leading over President Trump.

On Nov. 19, the Trump campaign requested a recount in two Wisconsin counties. “Our democracy depends on fair and impartial elections that fully adhere to the Constitution and state statute,” Jim Troupis, Wisconsin counsel to the Trump campaign, said in a statement then. “We continue to be confident that when all of the legal ballots are counted and illegal ballots are not counted, President Trump will be proven the winner,” Troupis said.

Out of about 460,000 ballots cast in Milwaukee County, Biden picked up an additional 132 votes. Before the recount, Biden had 317,270 votes in to Trump’s 134,357. After the recount, it was 317,527 for Biden and 134,482 for Trump, which meant Biden gained 257 votes and Trump added 125.

President Trump has yet to concede the race to Democrat Joe Biden claiming widespread voter fraud shifted the election in favor of the Democrat challenger. The Trump legal team is refusing to back down from the fight against voter fraud. The media projects Joe Biden to win the election when the Electoral College convenes Dec. 14.
