  • Trump Campaign Abandons Arizona Lawsuit Seeking Ballot Review

    Lawyers for the Trump campaign have dropped the Arizona lawsuit that sought a review of all ballots cast on Election Day. The decision to abandon the suit came after finding Biden's margin of victory could not be overcome. According to CNN, Trump lawyers filed the lawsuit on Saturday alleging some voters were confused on Election Day. According to the suit confused voters thought their votes were not counted. They also thought vote tabulation machines classified their ballots as overvotes. They were seeking a hand review of any ballots flagged by the machine as overvotes. Lawyers and the Secretary of State filed papers showing the difference in votes is too large to overcome. The difference between Biden and Trump is 11,414 with 10,315 ballots left to be counted.

  • Trump Campaign Kicks Off Recount Demand Spree

    The campaign to re-elect President Donald Trump has decided to badger the Badger State for a recount. Business Insider reports the Trump campaign is demanding a recount in Wisconsin, which has ten Electoral College votes. As of November 4th, 98% of the statewide vote is in. Biden has 49.4%, and Trump has 48.8%--a difference of only 20,510 votes. Winning the state is critical to both President Trump and Vice President Joe Biden in their respective paths to victory. Wisconsin does not mandate automatic recounts. However, a candidate can request one if he or she is behind by less than 1% of the vote.

  • Ignoring The Truth, Trump Insists Election Results Will Be Called On The Same Day

    A record-shattering 100 million Americans cast their ballots in the 2020 general election before polls opened Tuesday. CNN reports the millions of mail-in ballots are expected to lead to a delay in the counting of votes once the polls close. Nevertheless, President Donald Trump has continued to falsely claim that the count is supposed to be completed by Election Night. His stance is politically beneficial because more GOP voters are expected to show up on Election Day, while more Democrats are expected to vote through the mail. Even before polls opened on Election Day, both presidential camps were gearing up for legal confrontations. The changes to voting rules due to the pandemic sparked a litany of court cases over rules related to voting and the counting of ballots.

  • Stein In Deep With FEC

    Jill Stein was the US Green Party's 2016 candidate for president. Business Insider reports that she owes the Federal Election Commission more than $66,000 in campaign finance violations. In 2016 Stein raised $7.3 million for a recount. In December 2016, Stein promised that her donors would get to vote on how to spend these surplus funds. That never happened. Instead, Stein spent millions on election-related litigation in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. She gave raises and "performance bonuses" to her core 2016 campaign staff. She spent $113,000 on her legal defense before the US Senate's Russia investigation.

  • How Trump's Demand That Wisconsin Counties Do A Recount Is Backfiring

    President Donald Trump's campaign spent $3 million on a recount that has already backfired spectacularly. According to Business Insider, the outcome of the general election's recount in one Wisconsin county was that Trump actually lost votes--not gained them. Milwaukee County announced Friday that President-elect Joe Biden made a total net gain of 132 votes out of nearly 460,000 votes cast. The Trump administration spent $3 million to request two recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties. Both have large numbers of Democrat voters. Dane County is expected to announce its recount results on Sunday.
