Three Wisconsin voters filed a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal on Monday to dismiss their voter fraud lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
Michael Langenhorst, Stephen Fifrick and Michael LeMay filed a lawsuit last week alleging that fraudulent ballots from Milwaukee, Dane and Menominee counties were included in Wisconsin’s final election certification. The plaintiffs believed that the allegedly fraudulent ballots altered the outcome of Wisconsin’s election. The lawsuit named the county clerks for Milwaukee, Dane and Menominee counties as well as Governor Tony Evers.
The plaintiffs claimed their votes were “diluted” due to the counties’ handling of the election. The plaintiffs had primarily expressed concerns over absentee ballots, alleging that voter fraud occurs more often with mailed-in ballots. The plaintiffs asserted that Wisconsin has a history of voter fraud and stated that Wisconsin has had 238 reported cases of potential voter fraud since 2016. The plaintiffs also took issue with how the counties “cured” ballot defects.
To offer evidence of voter fraud, the plaintiffs had asked to analyze the voter data themselves, stating:
Plaintiffs possess advanced technical capability to conduct statistical analyses identifying errors and anomalies such double votes, votes by non-registered persons, votes by persons who are deceased or moved out of state, and the like. Plaintiffs seek immediate production of registration, election, and other data to conduct and present those analyses to the Court.
Nevertheless, the plaintiffs filed a motion Monday to dismiss the lawsuit. The plaintiffs’ motion did not include details on their voluntary dismissal but only provided that their case “is voluntarily dismissed without prejudice against all Defendants.”
