The 2024 election is shaping up to be another photo finish.

Democrats are looking to get an edge by hook or by crook.

And Joe Biden blew a gasket after a judge handed him a crushing defeat in this must-win state.

The battleground state of Wisconsin came down to the wire in both the 2016 and the 2020 elections.

Donald Trump won the state by about 23,000 votes in 2016 before President Joe Biden won it by roughly 20,000 votes in 2020.

Democrats in Wisconsin used the pandemic to massively expand absentee voting.

In the 2022 election, the heavily-Democrat city of Racine launched a jaw-dropping scheme to collect absentee ballots.

The Democrat city clerk bought a van to drive to various neighborhoods and conduct in-person absentee voting and collect absentee ballots. 

The van was purchased with grant money from the Center for Tech and Civic Life, a non-profit funded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg that has been accused of doling out money to boost election turnout to help Democrats.

The van was a blatant attempt to juice turnout in heavily-Democrat neighborhoods in a city located in one of the country’s most evenly divided battleground states.

Representing Kenneth Brown, the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL) sued the Wisconsin Elections Commission as well as Racine City Clerk Tara McMenamin over this absurd scheme to boost Democrats’ electoral fortunes.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Black Leaders Organizing for Communities were intervenors on behalf of the Racine County Clerk.

Racine County Circuit Court Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz ruled that the mobile voting violated state law and unfairly benefited Democrats.

The van was dispatched to nearly two dozen places in Racine for in-person absentee voting in the final two weeks before the 2022 election.

Gasiorkiewicz ruled that the sites were chosen to help Democrats. 

“The statute in question clearly and unequivocally indicates that chosen alternate absentee balance balloting sites cannot afford an advantage to any political party,” Gasiorkiewicz wrote. “The filings in this case clearly indicated that the alternate sites chosen clearly favored members of the Democratic Party or those with known Democratic Party leanings.”

WILL Deputy Counsel Lucas Vebber said that the ruling was a victory for election integrity.

“Wisconsin voters should know that their elections are secure, and that the election administration does not favor one political party over another,” Vebber said. “This decision does just that. WILL’s policy and legal expertise allow us to hold government actors accountable to the rule of law at all levels.”

Wisconsin is expected to be one of the most hotly contested states in the 2024 election.

The ruling dealt a crushing defeat to a dirty trick that Democrats were hoping would hand them this must-win state.
