On Tuesday, the Wisconsin Supreme Court may choose our president. That is, justices will hear arguments in a lawsuit that would force the state to remove 129,000 people from the voter rolls on grounds they'd moved from their registration addresses.

But a report by the nation's top experts in address verification, including the official licensee of the U.S. Postal Service, says that at least 39,722 "movers" did not move.

Worse, the hit list is not only disastrously wrong, it is suspiciously over-weighted with African Americans.

Given Trump's 2016 Wisconsin victory margin of less than 23,000 votes, this racially poisonous purge of voters could decide the state, and so the nation.

On Monday, Black Voters Matter Fund issued my foundation's report, "Wisconsin 'Movers' Purge List Errors" with a link to SaveMyVote2020.org where we list every single voter facing erasure of their voting rights.

This was not a sampling nor estimate. Rather, four experts in what is called "address list hygiene" -- the same experts that confirm your address for Amazon, eBay and Home Depot -- conducted a name by name review of addresses using 240 tested data feeds -- where you get your Netflix films, your mortgage, your taxes, your credit card purchases -- to locate you with absolute precision.

In addition, it was all checked with the post office's designated licensee, Merkle Inc., in charge of maintaining the deep historic change-of-address files.
