Just over a week before a Joint Session of Congress is scheduled to count the electoral votes, a La Crosse County man’s petition against the Wisconsin Elections Commission and Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers was docketed at the United States Supreme Court.

The session is scheduled for Jan. 6. Bill Feehan filed a petition for a writ of mandamus on Dec. 15, and it was docketed on Dec. 29.

Feehan is a nominee of the Republican Party to be a Presidential Elector on behalf of the State of Wisconsin as the chair of Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District GOP. Feehan is also the chair of the La Crosse County Republican Party.

Feehan filed the petition against the Wisconsin Elections Commission, Commissioner Ann S. Jacobs, Marc L. Thomsen, Commissioner Marge Bostelman, Julie M. Glancey, Commissioner Dean Knudson, Robert F. Spindell Jr., and Gov. Evers.

In the case, Feehan argues the District Court erred when it dismissed the complaint. He also said the respondents violated the U.S. Constitution and Wisconsin State Law when it modified the Wisconsin Legislature’s election laws through non-legislative action. Additionally, the petition says the respondents knowingly enabled, facilitated, and permitted election fraud.

In the official court document, Feehan asked for an emergency order instructing the respondents to de-certify the presidential election results and instead certify the results for current President Donald Trump. He also asked the U.S. Supreme Court to not let registration data, ballots, envelopes, and other election information be tampered with or destroyed.
