Wisconsin Supreme Court Supports Republicans On Pandemic Rules For Voter ID

Written by Wes Walker on December 15, 2020

Team Biden didn’t spend their time, energy, and money on a political campaign — because they spent it on ‘preparing the battlefield’ exploiting every loophole they could find.

Team Biden, and his allies, had hundreds of court cases pushing for various ways in which voter security rules could be relaxed.

When a vote becomes less secure, it is more open to a wide array of mischief. This formula never plays to the benefit of a citizen, it always to the benefit of a political agent with ulterior motives.

This play was done, as all other Democrat plays are done, under the cover of ‘noble motives’. That meant making the vote safer during a pandemic on one hand (maximizing the mail-in vote). It also meant ending ‘voter suppression’ on the other hand.

Fortunately, the Wisconsin Supreme Court was able to see through their transparent ploy.

They just ruled against it.

Under Wisconsin’s election law, a voter may declare him- or herself “indefinitely confined” because of age, physical illness, or infirmity—a status that allows one to submit an absentee ballot application without providing a photo ID. In a March 25 statement on his Facebook, Dane County clerk Scott McDonell encouraged “all voters who request a ballot and have trouble presenting a valid ID” to “indicate as needed that they are indefinitely confined due to illness.”

“This declaration will make it easier for Dane County voters to participate in this election by mail in these difficult times,” McDonell said, citing Gov. Tony Evers’ stay-at-home order.

The Wisconsin Republican Party promptly sued McDonell for his message, arguing that the action suggested was abuse of the indefinitely confined status as a means to bypass voter ID requirements. The Wisconsin Supreme Court justices have ordered the clerk rescinded the statement.

…“The plain language of (Wisconsin’s election law) requires that each elector make an individual assessment to determine whether he or she qualifies as indefinitely confined or disabled for an indefinite period,” Chief Justice Patience Roggensack wrote in the majority opinion. “A county clerk may not ‘declare’ that any elector is indefinitely confined due to a pandemic.”

In addition, the court ruled that votes could not count for those who falsely claimed the status of indefinitely confinement. It’s unclear whether the decision will invalidate some of the votes cast in this year’s presidential election, or if it is simply for future reference.

“If individual electors did not follow the statutory mandate and continued to vote as indefinitely confined, despite no longer meeting the statutory requirements, they would cast their votes contrary to the statute,” the majority opinion reads. “In turn, because compliance with the absentee ballot process is mandatory, their ballots would not count.” —EpochTimes

What role will this play in the larger unfolding drama?

Possibly nothing.

Then again, Wisconsin was one of the states that had provisional Republican Electoral College votes submitted.

The fight’s not over yet.

Time will tell what, if anything, comes of it.
