APTOPIX Election 2020 Recount Wisconsin

A group with Republican ties has asked the state Supreme Court to throw out the results of Wisconsin's presidential election and force the Legislature to certify the state's presidential electors instead.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a group called Wisconsin Voters Alliance, which tried unsuccessfully before the election to block $6.3 million in grant funding to help run elections in five Wisconsin cities. The group's attorneys include Erick Kaardal, a past officer for the Republican Party of Minnesota and a lawyer for The Thomas More Society, a Chicago-based conservative law firm.
