President Trump isn’t giving up yet. The Trump legal team has filed a second petition with the Supreme Court over the presidential election results. The Trump campaign filed a petition for a writ of certiorari with the Supreme Court, asking it to review the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s ruling in the Donald J. Trump, et al vs. Joseph R. Biden, et al. case which allegedly allowed illegal ballots to be counted. The petition cites the Wisconsin State Legislature’s concerns regarding absentee ballot fraud.
The legislature finds that voting is a constitutional right, the vigorous exercise of which should be strongly encouraged. In contrast, voting by absentee ballot is a privilege exercised wholly outside the traditional safeguards of the polling place,” the petition states. “The legislature finds that the privilege of voting by absentee ballot must be carefully regulated to prevent the potential for fraud or abuse; to prevent overzealous solicitation of absent electors who may prefer not to participate in an election; to prevent undue influence on an absent elector to vote for or against a candidate or to cast a particular vote in a referendum; or other similar abuses.”
One of the other issues at hand, according to the petition, is whether or not voters had to provide photo identification, as required by state law. Under state law, a voter has to be considered disabled in order to certify their identity for the purpose of voting.
Drop boxes were allegedly used to collect absentee ballots and ballots were allowed to be curated without witness information, both of which are violations of Wisconsin law.
“Regrettably, the Wisconsin Supreme Court, in their 4-3 decision, refused to address the merits of our claim. This ‘Cert Petition’ asks them to address our claims, which, if allowed, would change the outcome of the election in Wisconsin,” the campaign’s lead attorney in Wisconsin, Jim Troupis, said in a statement. “Three members of the Wisconsin State Supreme Court, including the Chief Justice, agreed with many of the President’s claims in written dissents from that court’s December 14 order.”
President Trump has yet to concede the election to Democrat rival Joe Biden. It’s clear that Trump will keep fighting for the election until the very end!
