Trump Campaign Files For Recount In Two Democrat-Leaning Wisconsin Counties

The Trump campaign has filed for a recount in two Wisconsin counties – Milwaukee and Dane – alleging they were subject to voting “irregularities.”

Trump Campaign: Milwaukee And Dane Saw The “Worst Irregularities”

The recount, which will cost $3 million, will not be statewide as some may have suspected, but rather focused on the counties of Milwaukee and Dane, two of the most liberal counties in the entire state.

These two counties are where the “worst irregularities” in the election took place, according to the Trump campaign.

“The people of Wisconsin deserve to know whether their election processes worked in a legal and transparent way,” said Jim Troupis, a Wisconsin attorney who is working with the President’s campaign team on the recount filing.

“Regrettably, the integrity of the election results cannot be trusted without a recount in these two counties and uniform enforcement of Wisconsin absentee ballot requirements. We will not know the true results of the election until only the legal ballots cast are counted,” he added.

The lawsuit alleges that “municipal clerks throughout the state of Wisconsin illegally altered absentee ballots by independently altering witness addresses to absentee ballot envelopes,” which would Wisconsin law.

Milwaukee Mayor Alleges Wisconsin Recount Request Is Racist

Milwaukee County is the biggest in the state, and home to the city that is its namesake, while Dane County hosts Madison, the liberal capital city, where students from the University of Wisconsin reside.

Both are deep blue Democrat cities, particularly Madison.

In 2016, Dane voted 217,506 to 71,270 for Clinton, while Milwaukee supported her 288,986 to 126,091.

In this election, Biden won Dane by 260,185 to 78,800, and Milwaukee by 317,27 to 134,357.

Democrat Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, said the recount was tantamount to “an attack on cities, on minorities, on places that have historically voted Democratic. Don’t let anyone fool you that this is about irregularities.”

Neighboring Michigan Faces Further Issues

The recount attempt follows developments in the neighboring state of Michigan, where the Wayne County Board of Canvassers initially refused to certify the votes, breaking along party lines, then flipped back again within hours.

Wayne County features Michigan’s biggest city, Detroit.

The reversal was allegedly egged on by threats from various Democrats, according to commentators on the right.
