The Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project is claiming to have discovered over 150,000 ballots which have the potential for fraud. The conservative group filed an emergency petition with the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday regarding the state’s unofficial election results. The group believes their discovery may have a major impact on Wisconsin’s declared winner of the presidential election.

“We have identified over 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots in Wisconsin, more than enough to call into question the validity of the state’s reported election results, ” Phill Kline, director of the project, said in a statement.“Moreover, these discrepancies were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law.”
The lawsuit claims election officials counted ineligible ballots, failed to count ballots that should have been counted, and that a number of counting errors and irregularities allegedly took place.
One of the main issues the lawsuit brings up is voting identification laws. Under Wisconsin state law, a voter must present a valid photo ID when requesting to vote by mail. The exception to the rule is for those voters who are currently hospitalized or “indefinitely confined because of age, physical illness, or infirmity.”
According to the Thomas More Society, that law was not upheld throughout the state. The exemption was interpreted to apply to those who contracted the Wuhan coronavirus. Roughly 100,000 people took advantage of that loophole, The Epoch Times reported.
Joe Biden was declared the winner of Wisconsin, however, the Thomas More Society is hopeful their discovery will be enough to overturn that outcome. Currently, a partial recount is taking place in the state as Milwaukee and Dane counties work through a recount.
