Leftist judge changes election law in battleground state just ahead of election

A Wisconsin judge named Everett Mitchell has issued a temporary injunction in connection to the Nov. 5 election throwing the system into chaos with almost no time left to adjust for his ruling.

“A Dane County Circuit Court judge who once said people who steal from big-box stores shouldn’t be prosecuted ruled that disabled Wisconsin voters can request and download electronic ballots, a change that could cause election-administration problems in the battleground state this November,” the New York Post reported.

“Judge Everett Mitchell, who also serves as a pastor in Madison and ran for state Supreme Court last year — losing in a four-way primary — issued a temporary injunction last week covering the Nov. 5 election, effectively modifying a portion of the election-administration landscape in a state that struggled with absentee-ballot tabulation in the last presidential election,” the media outlet added.

“Voters with print disabilities who self-certify they cannot read or complete a ballot without assistance can request electronic ballots from their election clerks, which they can complete with the use of assistive technology and mail back, thanks to the injunction,” the New York Post wrote concerning a move that is ripe for election fraud.

That means that election clerks in nearly 2,000 municipalities will be up against the wall in order to comply with the mandate. The ruling has the potential to cause mass confusion in a state that has already had issues with absentee ballots and it could create security risks as well, according to Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul’s deputy attorneys.

“Wisconsin’s election administration is somewhat decentralized, with 72 county clerks and more than 1,800 municipal clerks responsible,” the New York Post noted. “Current state law allows military and overseas voters to request absentee ballots and mail the paper ballots back.”

“Before the injunction, disabled voters would have used the same process as any absentee voter: request an absentee ballot from a local election clerk, receive and complete the paper ballot sent via mail, and drop off the ballot at the clerk’s office or mail it back,” the outlet wrote.

An appeal was filed by Republican state legislators who contend that Judge Mitchell is knowingly throwing a wrench into the election process just months before a major election.

“Unless or until the appeal is upheld, clerks will be scrambling to adjust to the new absentee-ballot law in Wisconsin, with the specter of the 2020 presidential election and Donald Trump’s Wisconsin lawsuit hanging in the background,” the New York Post asserted.

Conservatives are not surprised but they are incensed over the judge changing Wisconsin absentee voting law once again just before a presidential election:
