On Wednesday, President Donald Trump sued a broad range of Wisconsin officials, including Gov. Tony Evers (D‑Wisc.), for violating the Constitution by trampling state law and privileging heavily Democratic areas over Republican areas. He had filed a separate lawsuit in the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday. This second lawsuit focuses on an alleged election scheme that undermined the integrity of ballots by weakening the chain-of-custody protections mandated by state law.
“The United States Constitution prevents the rules in a Presidential Election from being changed at the last minute by un-elected bureaucrats and local politicians who may have a more narrow interest in the outcome of the election. We have alleged in our Complaint on behalf of the President that the Wisconsin Elections Commission and other state and local officials in Wisconsin broke the Wisconsin Election Code and ran an unconstitutional and unlawful election,” Bill Bock, lead counsel in Trump’s Wisconsin lawsuit, said in a statement.
