That Didn’t Take Long: Election-related Lawsuit Filed

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — The first lawsuit is filed in connection with last week’s coronavirus-marred elections in Wisconsin. `A group of 14 Milwaukee-area residents filed a class-action lawsuit Monday in U.S. District Court in Madison. The suit seeks a partial re-vote of last week’s election, which saw long lines at polling places in Milwaukee and Green Bay. The suit names Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald as defendants, along with the state individually, the Legislature and the Wisconsin Elections Commission. The goal is not a new election but an “order to count the votes of all those who were disenfranchised April 7,” the plaintiffs’ attorneys say in a news release.`
