- Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers wants to force former Trump attorney Sidney Powell pay for her bogus legal efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Via Reuters legal reporter Brad Heath, Evers is demanding that Powell face $106,780 in sanctions for her failed efforts to delegitimize the results of Wisconsin’s election.
- “Plaintiff’s complaint did not outline coherent legal claims so much as it flitted among a variety of fringe conspiracy theories, sources to anonymous declarations submitted by ostensible experts who were later identified and revealed to be extreme partisans with neither the experience nor qualifications to provide any type of opinion,” the complaint reads.
- The complaint goes on to argue that “there is no reason for Wisconsin taxpayers to bear the expense of this attempt to hijack the democratic process.” In addition to potentially facing over $100,000 in sanctions, Powell is facing a much more expensive defamation lawsuit from Dominion that seeks damages of over $1 billion in damages.
