Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission

 

Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) is an important case relevant to some problems with the 2020 election. It began with the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty.  Here’s the WILL’s site on the case, and here’s an official info site from the Wisconsin court system.

True to the tone set by the WILL on page 4 of this report, they’re not out to say “The election was stolen!” without nuance, to accuse all illegally cast or counted votes of being Biden votes, or to say “It was all fraud!”  But they do want some clarity on what illegalities occurred in Wisconsin in the 2020 election, and they want Wisconsin to do better in the future.

And what did happen?

Alas! Illegally counted votes exceeded the Biden margin of victory in Wisconsin because votes cast in outdoor dropboxes and at Democracy in the Park were not legally counted!

Let’s Clarify a Few Things Immediately

When they fail to read so you have to go back and fix <strong>[REDACTED]</strong> to make your  points blindingly obvious - ImgflipFirst, I was apparently wrong before.  I was wrong when I said that these things were legal–fraud-enabling bad election practices, but legal.

Unless I’m wrong now.  But I think I’m right now.  Obviously, that’s what I think, but you can be the judge: Look at the arguments below!

Second, from what I can tell, Teigen does not directly address the unusual and questionable election arrangement of Democracy in the Park. But it looks to me like the same logic extends to Democracy in the Park.  More on that soon!

Third, this case is on its way to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which may yet rule differently.  If that happens, I can only hope that I have the time and ability to figure out their argument.  I don’t expect to change my mind again on this, but, if I did, it wouldn’t be the first time!

So What’s Going On Here?

No more delays: Let’s lay out the basic facts!  Here they are, as near as I can tell.

The laws of Wisconsin (chapter 6, section 87) state concerning absentee ballot envelopes:

The envelope shall be mailed by the elector, or delivered in person, to the municipal clerk issuing the ballot or ballots.

The laws do not provide for a bunch of outdoor dropboxes for collecting absentee ballots.

However, in 2020, Wisconsin cities did use a bunch of outdoor dropboxes.

Tens of thousands of votes were cast and collected in this unfortunate manner.  About 74,000 votes in dropboxes altogether.  Some of those were indoors at a city clerk’s office, and I cautiously guesstimate that about half were in outdoor dropboxes: 37,000 of them.

Casting votes in this manner is probably not any kind of a crime, but it could be improper.  And the law specifies that absentee votes thus cast improperly “may not be counted.”  So if they were cast improperly according to this law, then they were also counted illegally.

And Wisconsin courts have (so far) ruled that they were not properly cast.

So Are the Courts Right So Far?

Fun and Games!] Disney Heroes: Battle Mode's Alphabet (Part 1) - Community  Chatter - Disney Heroes: Battle ModeSadly, it would seem so.  My earlier view–considering chapter 6, section 87, by itself–was that these votes were properly cast and legally counted.  The logic was simple:

1. If putting a ballot in a dropbox is a way of handing it over to the clerk, then this was legally ok.
2. Putting a ballot in a dropbox was a way of handing it over to the clerk.
3. So this was legally ok.

The first premise of this argument is guaranteed by chapter 6.  The second premise seemed true to me since the dropboxes were under the control of the city clerks.

My view has been changed by thinking through chapter 6, section 855, of the laws of Wisconsin.  Section 855 gives some rules for voting at an alternate site.  This gives us a new argument, which overrules my earlier optimism:

1. If these dropboxes were alternate sites under section 855, then these votes were not collected in a manner consistent with the law.
2. They were alternate sites under section 855.
3. So these votes were not collected in a manner consistent with the law.

Premise 1 is not controversial; the rules in section 855 were not followed.

And premise 2?

Well, they are alternate sites.  My earlier optimism involved considering the dropboxes as extensions of a city clerk’s office.  But an outdoor dropbox is not, literally, an extension of the clerk’s office.  It is, literally, an alternate site.

And does every alternate site fall under the jurisdiction of section 855?

It looks that way to me.  We can reason this out more slowly if we need to, and I have–see the final paragraph of this post!  But, for now, let’s just cut to the chase: Here is what I take to be the clincher argument:

1. If Section 855 does not apply to all locations outside the clerk’s office where some functions of an election are performed, then various uses of alternate sites are permitted independently of 855.
2. If various uses of alternate sites are permitted independently of 855, then what 855 permits is also permitted independently of 855.
3. If what 855 permits is also permitted independently of 855, then 855’s permission accomplishes nothing.
4. If 855’s permission accomplishes nothing, then 855 is a pointless law that accomplishes nothing.
5. So if Section 855 does not apply to all locations outside the clerk’s office where some functions of an election are performed, then 855 is a pointless law that accomplishes nothing.

The conclusion of this argument is guaranteed by its premises, and every premise looks true to me.

Now I say: The law is the law, and 855 is not a pointless law that accomplishes nothing, and therefore Section 855 does apply to all locations outside the clerk’s office where some functions of an election are performed.

In short, chapter 6 tells us that, if an absentee ballot in Wisconsin is not delivered by mail or in person at the city clerk’s office, then it had better be in the functional equivalent of the office, an alternate site operated in accordance with Section 855.

So these outdoor dropbox votes were not cast properly, and they were illegally counted.

But Wait! There’s More!

This is how Billy Mayes contributes to the scenery. | Billy mays, I love to  laugh, MemesThe city of Madison, Wisconsin, did something called “Democracy in the Park.” Like the outdoor dropboxes, it also had some functions of an election happening outside the clerk’s office–and not in a manner consistent with section 855.

And that means, by the same reasoning, that these votes also were improperly cast and could not be legally counted.

And, as before, they were illegally counted.  (Of course.)

And that affects about 17,000 more votes in Wisconsin, joining our estimated 37,000 illegally counted dropbox votes.

And what was the Biden margin of victory again?

In Wisconsin, about 20,000.

Epically Facepalmy

Facepalm face palm GIF - Find on GIFERHere are what I take to be the main takeaways of this epically facepalmy episode.

First, the quest to figure out the 2020 election continues. It does continue. It must continue. There are many, many things to figure out.

Second, there is solid evidence that illegally cast or illegally counted votes exceeded the Biden margin of victory in swing states.  Some of that evidence has won some important fights in court.

That’s bad enough.

But, third, there are related, and worse, forms of illegality.  The whole reason we have these rules for casting and counting ballots is to prevent cheating.  These illegalities made cheating easier, and it’s likely that someone took advantage of it.  People are people, and many people are corrupt.

And is there any evidence that much cheating took place in 2020?  An organization called True the Vote has been working on that, and they say: Yes!  You can look up their information here.  I hope to look over their newer news myself soon, but . . . I haven’t–yet. Stay tuned, I guess.

Meanwhile, more details on Teigen and related matters in Wisconsin are in chapter 6 of my big Ricochet post here (or, for off-Ricochet, here).

    The drop boxes seem like a sure fire way to LOSE your vote. I think publicly coming out against drop box usage and going through proper channels among voters (as well as laws) should be done.

    Anyone using a drop box risks their vote being lost.

    Drop box votes were actually counted. But drop box voting isn’t very legal in WI (and likely other places they were used).

    In late January film producer Dinesh D’Souza released the trailer for his upcoming movie “2000 Mules.”

    True the Vote has been working with Dinesh D’Souza to create this bombshell movie that uses footage and tracking data they obtained of ballot boxes in key states across America used to steal the election in 2020.

    Using commercially available geo-tracking cell phone data, True the Vote was able to take footage from drop boxes across America in key states like Georgia and others to track over 2,000 ‘mules” wearing gloves and disguises to stuff ballot boxes.

    I’d post the trailer to his documentary here but YouTube has banned it.

    People can’t have it both ways. If there were illegalities, it was fraud. We need to call it what it is and not let them move onto doing better in the future because they are/were too cowardly or corrupt to do their jobs now and in the past.

    This is the key point IMO.  Its not that they were all ballots that were fraudulent, but rather that, by not following the rules of the election, should not be counted.  It is essentially no different than a polling location staying open past its closing time.  By allowing people to join the line and vote after the closing time, even if they follow all the correct procedures to vote, those votes should not count because the person wasn’t in line at closing time. 

    To use a sports analogy, look at the Colorado Buffalos who won a share of the national championship in 1990 by going undefeated, but one of their games they won because the refs made a mistake and allowed them five downs and they won on the fifth down.  It was clear that they only won the game, and thus their share of the national championship, because of an error by the officials.  There were calls for them to forfeit the game, which they refused to do.  It forever tarnished their season, and for me at least, their program.

    a. getting someone elected to office

    b. choosing a candidate

    c. snacks for the workers

    d. printing ballots

     

    Seems to me it could mean anything or nothing.

    I don’t believe every illegality is fraud, for which there is a technical definition.

    But these illegalities–despite the national disgrace that illegally counted votes exceeded the Biden margin of victory–also enabled fraud.  True the Vote!

    For our purposes, it means stuff mentioned by the laws of Wisconsin, chapter 6, section 855. In particular, things like requesting absentee ballots, voting them in-person, and returning them in-person.

    I’m not late, but I am slow to catch up. The big post started about three days after the election. It was, I think, about 2,000 words at first. (The James Gawron quote on the first page of comments may be consulted for a word-count.)

    It’s now 50,000-plus words.  I have notes on future topics to explore and work into it–and notes on which posts need updating in particular.  (Some WI, some not.)

    StA isn’t so “late to the game” as you might think, check his other posts that he’s been updating for quite a while.

    I am well aware of those posts and he is late to the game. I understand trying to keep up with all the different states takes a while, though.

    Then maybe the problem is that WI may have had corrupt elections for a long time, but it was more of an in-state matter until 2020.  No reason to expect the rest of us to be following Wisconsin corruption while it was pretty much limited to Wisconsin.

    In late January film producer Dinesh D’Souza released the trailer for his upcoming movie “2000 Mules.”

    True the Vote has been working with Dinesh D’Souza to create this bombshell movie that uses footage and tracking data they obtained of ballot boxes in key states across America used to steal the election in 2020.

    Using commercially available geo-tracking cell phone data, True the Vote was able to take footage from drop boxes across America in key states like Georgia and others to track over 2,000 ‘mules” wearing gloves and disguises to stuff ballot boxes.

    I’d post the trailer to his documentary here but YouTube has banned it.

    How about Rumble?

    Yeah it’s there but Rumble doesn’t embed here. The link above goes to his site.

    As a Wisconsinite, my response to your Johnny-come-lately post is a John McClane Die Hard quote: “Welcome to the party, pal!”

    Discussion of the dropboxes, Madison’s democracy in the park (you should know and mention what Madison City Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl did in response to a letter instructing her to keep ballots collected in the park separate in anticipation of a lawsuit), and every other of the irregularities and illegalities in the 2020 election is incomplete without a critical look at the Wisconsin Election Commission’s (WEC) dereliction of its oversight and administration duties.

    You can read about the latest evidence for voter fraud in Wisconsin nursing homes, WEC corruption, Zuckerberg’s Center for Tech and Civic Life involvement, etc., etc. in Special Counsel (appointed by the Wisconsin State Legislature) Michael Gableman’s most recent report:

    Here’s an article about the legal issues surrounding the WEC that was written right after the election:

    No, that’s not it, nor was my comment directed at more than one person.

    I’d argue that government scum and villainy is worse than private scum and villainy.
