Monday, the media announced that Wisconsin certified the election results for the 2020 Presidential election in favor of Joe Biden, while the state is under a full audit of the election making the Election Commissioner and his board very unhappy.
“This is an illegal certification,” Dean Knudson said, hinting that the certification was done on purpose to avoid the audit.
Dem chair of Wisc Elec Commission made her determination today of the 2020 election before reading the report on the voting machine audits. Ignored our bipartisan agreement in 2018 that audits be reviewed prior to finalizing
In Wisconsin election ,law says that the State is doing an audit at the same time as a recount. That is an important fact to understand because there is an active audit happening, at the same time the media is pressuring people like Wisconsin Governor Ever to certify the state 2020 Presidential election results, which happened Monday.
Immediately, Dean Knudson, Wisconsin Elections Commissioner and former state representative from Wisconsin. tweeted showing an explosive civil conflict in the state, between different levels of State Government.
Dem Chair of Wisc Elec Comm, Dem controlled WI DOJ & Dem @GovEvers all colluded to violate the law today. The Elections Commission, not chair alone, “For presidential electors, the commission shall prepare a certificate showing the determination of the results of the canvass @govevers claims to have signed the “certificate” already tonight, but WEC administrator emailed :
“Today, as you know, the Chair made determinations of the recount and presidential election. This does not result in the issuance of a certificate of election”
Plain language of Wisc state law is simple and does not give this power to WEC Chair alone. I asked at the last WEC meeting for full commission to discuss prior to sending to @GovEvers for signing, asked twice more in writing since with no response.

The illegal certification war happens at the same time that President Donald Trump has dropped a major Lawsuit.
From the Press Release:
President Donald J. Trump’s re-election campaign filed a lawsuit to the Wisconsin Supreme Court following the campaign’s requested recount to uncover fraud and abuse that irrefutably altered the outcome of this election. Today’s suit includes four cases with clear evidence of unlawfulness, such as illegally altering absentee ballot envelopes, counting ballots that had no required application, overlooking unlawful claims of indefinite confinement, and holding illegal voting events called Democracy in the Park. These unlawful actions affected no less than approximately 221,000 ballots out of over the three million ballots cast in Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Elections Commission directed municipal clerks to illegally alter incomplete absentee ballot envelopes contrary to Wisconsin law. Clerks were instructed that they could rely on their own “personal knowledge,” or unspecified “lists or databases at his or her disposal” to add in missing information on returned absentee ballots. Under Wisconsin law, incomplete absentee ballots must be corrected by the voter, and only the voter or they may not be counted.
In another example, municipal clerks issued absentee ballots to voters without requiring the mandatory application, in direct conflict with Wisconsin’s absentee voting safeguards. Wisconsin law expressly requires that absentee ballots may not be issued without receiving a written application requesting the ballot. Despite clear statute, clerks in Madison and Milwaukee issued thousands of absentee ballots without collecting a written application during the two-week in-person absentee voting period that ran from October 20, 2020, through November 1, 2020.
Voter identification is an essential requirement in Wisconsin to ensure only eligible voters cast ballots. In Madison and Milwaukee, voters were fraudulently permitted by election officials to circumvent voter ID laws and claim an absentee voting status that is only to be used for voters who are indefinitely confined under the circumstances that they are physically ill, infirm, elderly, or disabled. More than 20,000 voters claimed that status and received and returned ballots without providing proper identification and without meeting the requirements for that status, and those ballots should not be counted in accordance with Wisconsin statute.
Finally, the city of Madison created unlawful polling locations at over 200 parks and city locations through their Democracy in the Park voting events. These voting events were held outside of the county’s approved polling locations and did not follow the state’s strict absentee voting requirements. Not only did they not follow the law, but Joe Biden’s campaign encouraged this unlawful voting, advertising these events as opportunities to vote and telling voters to bring their completed ballot to turn in or their incomplete ballot to have a so-called “poll worker” serve as a witness. Voters are not allowed to turn in their absentee ballots anywhere other than the designated polling locations, and any ballots illegally cast there should not be counted.
“The people of Wisconsin deserve election processes with uniform enforcement of the law, plain and simple. During the recount in Dane and Milwaukee counties, we know with absolute certainty illegal ballots have unduly influenced the state’s election results. Wisconsin cannot allow the over three million legal ballots to be eroded by even a single illegal ballot,” said Jim Troupis, counsel to the campaign. “We will continue fighting on behalf of the American people to defend their right to a free and fair election by helping to restore integrity and transparency in our elections.”
“As we have said from the very beginning of this process, we want all legal votes and only legal votes to be counted,” said Rudy Giuliani, former New York City Mayor and Personal Attorney to President Trump. “Americans must be able to trust in our election results, and we not stop until we can ensure voters once again have faith in our electoral process.”
