The Wisconsin Supreme Court tossed out President Trump’s election lawsuit on everything BUT the merits of the case.
According to the Associated Press, “The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Monday rejected President Donald Trump’s lawsuit attempting to overturn his loss to Democrat Joe Biden in the battleground state, ending [President] Trump’s legal challenges in state court about an hour before the Electoral College was to meet to cast the state’s 10 votes for Biden.”
“The President sought to have more than 221,000 ballots disqualified in Dane and Milwaukee counties, the state’s two most heavily Democratic [and most heavily populated] counties. In a 4-3 ruling, Justice Brian Hagedorn, a conservative writing for the majority, said the Trump campaign was ‘not entitled to the relief it seeks.’”
Okay…, first of all…, why is it important to note that Justice Hagedorn is supposedly a “conservative?” Is that supposed to lend some credence to his opinion?
I guess so.
“Hagedorn used a sports analogy when ruling against Trump, saying he waited too long to raise his complaints.”
‘“Our laws allow the challenge flag to be thrown regarding various aspects of election administration,’ Hagedorn wrote.”
He seems to assume everyone reading his ruling is familiar with American football, and the National Football League.
Actually, I think that is quite culturalist and even misogynistic.
But that’s okay, as long as it’s a ruling against President Trump and conservatives.
‘“The challenges raised by the [President’s] Campaign in this case, however, come long after the last play or even the last game; the Campaign is challenging the rulebook adopted before the season began.’”
As I have stated in earlier blogs, is it ever too late for justice to be served?
And you shouldn’t be looking at any “rulebook” adopted by anyone else other that the state’s legislature, which is solely given the rights to create the laws governing a state’s elections by The United States Constitution.
“[President] Trump wanted to disqualify absentee ballots cast early and in-person, saying there wasn’t a proper written request made for the ballots; absentee ballots cast by people who claimed ‘indefinitely confined’ status; absentee ballots collected by poll workers at Madison parks; and absentee ballots where clerks filled in missing information on ballot envelopes.”
Please note that there is nothing in Wisconsin’s election laws, established by the legislature, allowing for any of this.
“The court ruled that [President] Trump’s challenge to voters who were indefinitely confined was without merit and that the other claims came too late.”
“Liberal justices Rebecca Dallet and Jill Karofsky, who sided with Hagedorn, wrote separately to emphasize that there was no evidence of fraud in Wisconsin’s election.”
‘“Wisconsin voters complied with the election rulebook,’ Dallet and Karofksy said. ‘No penalties were committed and the final score was the result of a free and fair election.’”
Even though these two wrote separately from Hagedorn, they sure seem to be writing from the same “playbook,” if you want to use football terminology.
“Karofsky blasted [President] Trump’s case during Saturday’s hearing, saying it ‘smacks of racism’ and was ‘un-American.’ Conservative justices voiced some concerns about how certain ballots were cast, while also questioning whether they could or should disqualify votes only in two counties.”
“Smacks of racism?!”
Please, Justice Karofsky, we don’t need an obviously biased and disingenuous lecture from you on top of your misguided and partisan decision regarding this case.
Karofsky is the larger pictured justice on the right.
“Biden [supposedly] won Wisconsin by about 20,600 votes, a margin of 0.6% that withstood a Trump-requested recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties, the two with the most Democratic votes. Trump did not challenge any ballots cast in the counties he won.”
Why would he challenge the counties he won?
And a recount of the same illegal ballots is, of course, just going to produce the same results.
Yes, folks, the “fix” was obviously in.
It’s a real shame that many of these state supreme courts are now making their judgements based on politics rather than the law.
In many cases, our judicial branch of government has “sold its soul” to the politically corrupt neo-fascist manipulators in our country.
“Justice” has now become what some liberal perceives it to be, or wants it to be, and not what it actually should be.
