WND's Farah Predictably Cheers Wis. Ballot Drop Box Ruling
Topic: WorldNetDaily

When the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that ballot drop boxes in the state were somehow illegal, Talking Points Memo highlighted how "it didn’t take long for right wing election lie evangelists to declare the decision proof of a fraudulent 2020 vote, and even to demand again that the election results be overturned." One of those rushing to do precisely that was Joseph Farah, who wrote in his July 11 WorldNetDaily column under the headline "Big victory for Trump at Wisconsin Supreme Court":

Wisconsin's Supreme Court ruled Friday that absentee ballot drop boxes may be placed only in election offices and that no one other than the voter can return a ballot in person.

It was the biggest development yet in addressing what Donald Trump and millions of others have called the "Big Steal" of the 2020 election.

Republicans who control the Wisconsin Legislature have also tried to enact laws limiting the use of absentee ballots, but [Gov. Tony] Evers has vetoed them.

The court's 4-3 ruling also has critical implications for the 2024 presidential race, in which Wisconsin will again be among a handful of battleground states. But Trump is trying to do more – hoping to win a series of rulings in key states that invalidates the 2020 election and saves the nation from two more years of Joe Biden.


Absentee voting exploded during the "plandemic" in 2020, with more than 40% of all voters casting mail ballots, a record high. At least 500 drop boxes were set up in more than 430 communities for the election that year, including more than a dozen each in Madison and Milwaukee — Wisconsin's two most heavily Democratic cities.

The movie "2000 Mules" exposed this charade that it said had deprived Trump of victory.

Trump called on Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Saturday to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the swing state after Friday's rulng.

But as Talking Points Memo pointed out, there's no credible evidence that ballot drop boxes are in any way linked to fraudulent voting, and "2000 Mules" gets more discredited every day, despite WND's enthusiastic promotion of it.

Much of Farah's column seems to be copid-and-pasted from other sources, which is why parts of it sound surprisingly less-than-biased.
