There are a lot of challenges going on now to the election and not all of them are from the Trump campaign or even the GOP.
While there are a lot of allegations and a variety of evidence, in order to prevail in court, you need to show that the evidence you have is going to make a difference in the election. In order to do that, you have to show a systemic issue.
But one challenge that isn’t from the Trump team but might show that systemic issue is from the conservatives at the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, according to Just the News.
On Tuesday, they filed an emergency petition to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, challenging the election results saying they had identified over 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots.
The difference in Wisconsin is 20,608 votes, so that could certainly make a difference there, if true.
Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, said the number involved was “more than enough to call into question the validity of the state’s reported election results.”
Kline also called out the “discrepancies” as a “direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law.”
So what exactly did they say they found?
According to the group in their petition, they found 14,426 ballots that were requested by a Republican but then filled in by another person, 12,071 Republican ballots that were returned but not counted, 26,673 illegal votes of people who voted where they didn’t reside, 96,437 who illegally voted absentee, 6966 illegally voted who were out of state and 234 double votes. That adds up to issues with 156,807 ballots.

Now, obviously, those could change the election with such a small difference.
According to the Epoch Times, Amistad is asking Wisconsin to not certify the election because of the irregularities.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission hasn’t made any statement on the claims as of yet. But the petition alleges illegal actions that led to some of the improper votes being counted, including not requiring photo id for absentee ballots when required by law. The exception to not requiring an id was for those “indefinitely confined because of age, physical illness, or infirmity.” That was interpreted to include the Wuhan coronavirus and involved nearly 100,000 people.
Two counties in Wisconsin are currently conducting a recount at the request of the Trump campaign which is expected to be finished by Dec. 1.
Amistad is not just confining their actions to Wisconsin. They will also be filing actions in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia, and Arizona.
