Judge Paul Malloy found the arguments persuasive enough to order the immediate deactivation of the majority of the 234,039 voters, ordering their removal in a purge disproportionately affecting minorities and Democrats. The decision rests on an interpretation of Wisconsin law to weaponize state records against left-leaning voters. If upheld, Trump’s chances of winning WI increase, set in motion by a right-wing organization funded by the Bradley Foundation, which bankrolls reactionary causes. Its lawsuit demands the WI Election Commission respond to a “Movers Report” produced by the Electronic Registration Information Center, identifying 234,039 people who may have moved to an address that is not yet on their voter registration forms. The commission intends to appeal, but it is unlikely to prevail at the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which is dominated by hard-line conservatives.
