President Trump’s Republican allies in Congress are objecting to several states’ electoral votes, saying fraud and irregularities marred the November election. But there is no evidence of such problems on a scale large enough to reverse Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s win.
Here are some of the claims about alleged irregularities in five key states and election officials’ responses. Mr. Trump’s campaign and its allies have lost dozens of lawsuits seeking to challenge the results.
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – Arizona Governor Ducey and Secretary of State Katie Hobbs are facing a lawsuit by federal officials to bring to light alleged massive fraud during this year’s General Elections.
A group of officials from around the country say the governor manipulated Arizona’s vote to manufacture an election in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.
County election officials agreed Wednesday to expand their inspection of certain ballots in metro Phoenix that are being challenged in a Republican lawsuit that seeks to reverse Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward, who filed a lawsuit contesting the election results, is looking for irregularities among the nearly 28,000 ballots in Maricopa County that were duplicated by elections officials because voters’ earlier ballots were damaged or couldn’t be tabulated.
President Donald Trump’s former campaign attorney Sidney Powell filed a federal lawsuit in Arizona Tuesday seeking to overturn the state’s election results.
The complaint claims “massive election fraud” throughout the state and “multiple violations of the Arizona election laws” during the 2020 general election. Powell also cites affidavits of “eye witnesses” and “expert witnesses” as proof that “the entire process is so riddled with fraud, illegality, and statistical impossibility.”
President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Wisconsin seeking to disqualify more than 221,000 ballots in the state’s two most Democratic counties, a longshot attempt to overturn Joe Biden’s win in a battleground state he lost by nearly 20,700 votes.
Trump filed the day after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and the chairwoman of the Wisconsin Elections Commission certified Biden as the winner of the state’s 10 Electoral College votes. Trump asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to take the case directly, rather than have it start in a lower court, and order Evers to withdraw the certification.
