BREAKING: The Wisconsin Elections Commission Has Just Been Sued Just Weeks Before The Midterm Elections

The state of Wisconsin has been working to clean up its act. Like the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia, Wisconsin is also home to many scrutinies involving election integrity.
Here on The Raging Patriots, we have talked and praised states like Arizona for taking steps forward for election integrity. Wisconsin has also been working on securing its elections.
During the summer, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court ruled that Ballot Drop Boxes are illegal.
In a previous Raging Patriots article:
Wisconsin’s Supreme Court ruled Friday that absentee ballot drop boxes are illegal. They said they can only be placed in election offices and no one other than the other can return a ballot in person.
A county in Wisconsin also passed a resolution that stated that Joe Biden was an illegitimate president.
Republicans in Langlade County, Wisconsin, passed a resolution that states that president Joe Biden was “not legitimately elected.” The resolution also states there was “substantial” voter fraud that interfered with the 2020 presidential election.
“The Republican Party of Langlade County Wisconsin formally rejects the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States,” reads the Langlade County GOP’s 2022 resolution obtained by The Epoch Times.
This isn’t hyperbole. Lawmakers in Wisconsin are working to decertify the state’s 2020 election results. Rep. Tim Ramthun has been outspoken about election integrity. However, he has been unable to get any state senators or any other Republican representative to back him up.
Rep. Tim Ramthun has lost the primary to the Trump-backed candidate Tim Michels. Hopefully, Tim Michels will have better luck and that Wisconsin exterminates their RINOs.
Wisconsin has a long way to go. Removing drop boxes is the first step, but Wisconsin has a history of spoiling ballots. Wisconsin municipal clerks have been instructed that after a voter submits an absentee ballot, the voter can request to “spoil” the ballot and then receive a new one, to change his/her vote.
According to the Wisconsin State Legislature:
Whenever an elector returns a spoiled or damaged absentee ballot to the municipal clerk, or an elector’s agent under sub. returns a spoiled or damaged ballot to the clerk on behalf of an elector, and the clerk believes that the ballot was issued to or on behalf of the elector who is returning it, the clerk shall issue a new ballot to the elector or elector’s agent, and shall destroy the spoiled or damaged ballot. Any request for a replacement ballot under this subsection must be made within the applicable time limits under subs.
Requesting a ballot is spoiled must be done under the exclusive authority of the voter. It should also be done before submitting the vote, not after. This is why Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC).
The Federalist reported:
In an Aug. 1, 2022, memorandum sent to all Wisconsin municipal clerks, WEC instructed that after a voter submits an absentee ballot, he can request to “spoil” that ballot and receive a new one if he changes his mind or makes a mistake. Furthermore, in an Aug. 2 memo, WEC allows clerks to “invalidate” a “spoiled ballot” on behalf of the voter.
RITE is asking the Waukesha County Circuit Court for immediate injunctive relief “prior to the start of absentee ballot voting for the November 8, 2022, election.” The election integrity group is suing on behalf of Wisconsin voter Nancy Kormanik and her right to fair and equal treatment.
During the 2020 election, Wisconsin processed nearly 2 million absentee ballots statewide.
WEC is breaking the law. Allowing voters to alter their votes after already casting it undermines our elections. When a vote is cast, there are no second chances, nor should there be.
