Sidney Powell Submits Embarrassing, Mistake-Riddled Wisconsin Lawsuit


Sidney Powell — the attorney who President Donald Trump recently announced as a member of his legal team before an unceremonious apparent firing after she threatened to “blow up” Georgia (metaphorically speaking) with a lawsuit — has filed a new lawsuit in Wisconsin in which she inexplicably demands footage from a voting and ballot-counting center in Michigan. In her Wisconsin lawsuit, Powell seeks to overturn the state’s results as they presently stand, asking for a decertification of the state’s presidential election results, which neither she nor anyone else have proven are riddled with fraud. Local reporter Jeramey Jannene says that Powell insists that “she would accept the Wisconsin Elections Commission and Governor Tony Evers picking Trump as the winner” — because of course she would.

Powell’s Wisconsin lawsuit asks for the “immediate production of 48 hours of security camera recording of all rooms used in the voting process at the TCF Center for November 3, 2020 and November 4, 2020” — which is in Detroit, Michigan. The inclusion of the request for footage from Michigan seems like a mistake. The Trump team and its allies have repeatedly targeted Detroit (and Michigan as a whole) in their ramshackle crusade against the election results, leading Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel (D) to recently observe that many of the Trump team’s challenges seem based in the ideas that “Black people are corrupt, Black people are incompetent and Black people can’t be trusted.” Besides the city of Detroit, Trump and his allies have also singled out Philadelphia, and both cities have substantial Black populations, giving the Trump team’s fights an air of racism.

Powell’s Wisconsin errors don’t stop with requesting footage from Michigan. Her lawsuit also repeatedly misspells the name of Milwaukee Election Commission executive director Claire Woodall-Vogg, who Powell refers to as “Claire Woodall-Voog.” Powell’s lawsuit “also incorrectly names a number of county election commissions,” Jannene explains.

In her Wisconsin lawsuit, Powell claims that “Smartmatic and Dominion were founded by foreign oligarchs and dictators to ensure computerized ballot-stuffing and vote manipulation to whatever level was needed to make certain Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez never lost another election” — but no Wisconsin county uses Smartmatic software, according to Wisconsin Elections Commission member Dean Knudson. Also, Hugo Chavez died about 7 years ago, which underlines the utter ridiculousness of Powell’s theory that a pro-Chavez plot underlined an election fraud scheme perpetrated through Smartmatic and Dominion technologies.
