Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers wants Donald Trump to personally foot the bill for all of the state resources which have been used up in dealing with Trump’s bogus lawsuits alleging election fraud in 2020. This isn’t a normal case, Trump certainly isn’t normal, and there’s no reason, according to Evers, why Wisconsinites should foot the bill. Law and Crime:

On Friday, the governor’s attorneys informed U.S. District Judge Brett Ludwig about that decision.

“Recent sanctions decisions in other post-election litigation support the propriety of sanctions here,” the governor’s brief states. “Federal trial courts in Michigan and Colorado awarded fees under both 28 U.S.C. § 1927 and inherent authority in other baseless post-election cases.”

“The Michigan and Colorado decisions cited several key considerations also present here,” the brief continues. “There, as here, the litigation was ‘not a normal case in any sense,’ as its purpose was ‘questioning the validity of a Presidential election, and the fairness of the basic mechanisms of American democracy.’”

Judge Ludwig, who will determine the sanctions motion, was appointed by Trump and scathingly rejected his effort to overturn Wisconsin’s election.

“This is an extraordinary case,” Ludwig wrote in a 23-page ruling in December, italicizing the word repeatedly in his ruling. “A sitting president who did not prevail in his bid for reelection has asked for federal court help in setting aside the popular vote based on disputed issues of election administration, issues he plainly could have raised before the vote occurred. This Court has allowed plaintiff the chance to make his case and he has lost on the merits.”

“In his reply brief, plaintiff ‘asks that the Rule of Law be followed,’” Ludwig observed.

“It has been,” the judge concluded.

If you’ve kept up on the news the past few days, one trend that you’re seeing is a kind of sea change, that it looks like Trump will finally be held accountable for something. There’s not just this case, there’s the January 6 commission looking to get information from Trump and his relatives, and there was the recent case where Trump’s cronies, Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, were sanctioned and referred for disbarment proceedings. And Rudy Giuliani, another Trump foil, is having accountability issues of his own.

The wheels of justice grind slow, but they grind relentlessly. Trump may find out the harsh consequences for playing the kinds of games he likes to play, because in the end, not everything is dischargeable in bankruptcy and this life isn’t a reality TV show.

Poor Reince Priebus. He may find out that he joined the Trump train a bit too late, just as it breaks its guardrails and goes off the bridge.

  1. YES YES YES, Let’s roast the pig properly, the states that are mostly Republican like Iowa, will have a tough time getting any refunds on their investment in stupidity, but of course finding the guilt in other states with a Fed judge forming a bench released statement of his own, makes for fewer sparks and more duds … just think how low Trump will feel when he realizes that TRUTH runs on an infinite supply of fuel and his rhetoric now means absolutely NOTHING !!

    They may have to tie him into a wheelchair to get him to court, but hey, it’s all buttered popcorn to us. I suspect his hair is going to suffer some large changes soon …

    He does make for the perfect TWIT, hands down …

    • Not the point…the point is to give me the deposed pharaoh treatment. Erase him and everything affiliated with him from existence. Leaving his estate on the hook for millions of dollars that can never be paid is a good start.

  2. This is funny. Since Evers is a Democrat, we can expect a response from Trump that describes Evers’ motion as a “far-left witch hunt.” If Evers had been a GOPer (a sane one) and did this, the Trump response would be “Primary him!!!!!”

  3. The real danger is he’ll appeal and appeal right up to SCOTUS – and that’s when you need to start worrying (considering the ‘judgments’ they’re handing out recently)
