The Wisconsin Supreme Court has rejected a Trump campaign legal effort to challenge Joe Biden’s victory in the state, claiming over 200k votes were illegally cast.
Writing for the majority in a 4-3 decision, Justice Brian Hagedorn said “The Campaign is not entitled to relief, and therefore does not succeed in its effort to strike votes and alter the certified winner of the 2020 presidential election.”
The majority ruled that the the campaign’s challenges in Milwaukee and Dane either should have been brought up much earlier or were without merit.
Hagedorn wrote “the Campaign’s delay in raising these issues was unreasonable in the extreme, and the resulting prejudice to the election officials, other candidates, voters of the affected counties, and to voters statewide, is obvious and immense.”
“Our laws allow the challenge flag to be thrown regarding various aspects of election administration,” he continued.
“The challenges raised by the 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,” he added.
