Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling raises serious doubt regarding validity of 2020 Presidential Elections

While the end of the first half of US President Joe Biden’s first (and probably last) term is drawing near and Democrats look increasingly likely to suffer a spectacular defeat in the Midterm Elections this autumn, the question may seem moot. Yet the Supreme Court of the US State of Wisconsin has issued a ruling that looks like a vindication, albeit a belated one, of ex-President Donald Trump’s allegation that the 2020 US Presidential elections were stolen from him.

The ruling comes as a result of a lawsuit filed in May by the Thomas More Society on behalf of state voters, who took legal action against the cities of Green Bay, Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, and Racine. Its gist is that the use of unmanned absentee ballot drop boxes, which in the controversial 2020 Elections provided for wide possibilities for election fraud, was totally illegal under Wisconsin election law. Yet it is the states, not the federal level, that are responsible for organising Presidential Elections under the US Constitutions. If the Supreme Court of one state finds that the elections were carried out in a way that runs afoul of that state’s constitution, then that state’s election outcome, and the resulting elections of members of the Electoral College, must be deemed illegal. If Supreme Courts of other states (in particular Georgia and Pennsylvania, where the use of ballot drop boxes was similarly controversial) were to follow suit, President Biden’s claim to the office he is holding would look increasingly dubious.

Beyond the court ruling, Thomas More Society attorneys also charge “that an illegal agreement existed between the Center for Tech and Civic Life [CTCL] and Wisconsin’s five largest cities to pay for and use the legally unauthorized absentee ballot drop boxes in the November 2020 election.” A nonprofit organization funded by Meta (formerly Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg, CTCL played a crucial role in manipulating local election processes in the lead-up to the 2020 election, with Zuckerberg and his wife donating more than $400 million to the group. Analyses on the use of “Zuckbucks” in 2020 have found that CTCL’s funding was heavily skewed towards states’ Democratic regions, turning it into a partisan get-out-the-vote operation for the left.
