In an unexpected decision that could have major consequences for President Trump’s re-election bid, an Appellate court in Wisconsin just opened the floodgates to potential voter fraud.
Like most states, Wisconsin cleans up their voter rolls via various mechanisms. This go-round they found 200,000 errors on the rolls so that list was purged.
The left went nuts and said they were all from Dem counties and the media ran with the lie never mentioning Wisconsin has same-day voter registration so if someone was removed in error they could fix it on the spot.
The left sued, but conservatives won mainly because the judge cited the same-day registration.
They lost but appealed and a judge just decided in their favor possibly opening up the election to certain shenanigans.
But thankfully, the GOP won a major special election for a state Supreme Court seat keeping conservatives in the majority so the GOP should prevail when they appeal.
The Hill reported that a Wisconsin court of appeals handed Democrats a win on Friday by overturning a ruling that sought to purge up to 209,000 people from voter registration rolls.
The ruling gives a boost to Democrats in a state that’s poised to play a decisive role in the 2020 presidential race. President Trump won Wisconsin by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016.
The conservative group that brought the case, Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, said it plans to appeal the ruling to the state Supreme Court.
A lower court judge in January ordered the purging of more than 200,000 people from voter rolls because they may have moved.
On Friday, the appeals court also overturned an order by the same judge that had found the state elections commission in contempt for not moving forward with the voter roll purge.
The plaintiffs in the original case argued that the state elections commission should’ve immediately deactivated the registrations of voters who did not respond within 30 days to a mailing sent in October, an indication that the person may have moved.
The affected voters were concentrated in areas that tend to vote for the Dems, prompting left-leaning groups to accuse the plaintiffs and county court of strategizing to reduce Democratic turnout, The Associated Press reported.
