Trump attorney Jim Troupis is back on the Wisconsin Judiciary Board
Former President Donald Trump’s attorney, Jim Troupis, who has been involved in several efforts to overturn Wisconsin’s election results, has been appointed a legal counsel in that state.
The Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee, as it is known, meets to “provide formal opinions and informal advice to judges and judicial officers who are subject to the Code of Judicial Conduct in relation to compliance with their intended or proposed conduct in relation to the Code subject,” says its website.
Now appointed for his second semesterTroupis will remain in office until March 7, 2026.
Troupis helped organize the bogus voter in Badger State, and he also led a lawsuit to nullify Joe Biden’s win in Wisconsin if it went to the state’s highest court.
Despite Trump’s bluster over alleged voter fraud, Troupis’ lawsuit focused on alleged flaws in Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) forms. Trump had no objection to those forms when he prevailed in that state in the 2016 election. He didn’t call those forms illegal until 2020, when he lost.
In his lawsuit, Troupis argued that the alleged flaws in those WEC forms should nullify findings in two of Wisconsin’s most diverse counties: Milwaukee and Dane, where most of the state’s blacks live. He did not argue that the findings should be overturned in other counties in the state that use those forms.
That’s why Wisconsin Superior Court Justice Jill Karofsky told Trump’s attorney during the December 2020 hearing, “This lawsuit, Mr. Troupis, reeks of racism.”
Troupis’ legal theory narrowly won in the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which defeated his case just 4-3, with conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn casting a deciding vote. No other pro-Trump election challenge would have won so narrowly after the 2020 election.
The reappointment of Trump attorney spun in the opposite direction by a margin, with three known disagreements among the judges: Karofsky, Ann Walsh Bradley and Rebecca Frank Dallet.
Litigation wasn’t Troupis’ only tactic in trying to nullify Biden’s victory.
in one memo Brought to light by the New York Times last month, Trump attorney Kenneth Chesebro urged Troupis to organize voters who favor the former president’s re-election, even though it “may seem odd.”
“It may seem strange that the voters pledged to Trump and Pence would gather and cast their ballots on December 14, even though at that time the Trump-Pence ticket was lagging in the vote count and no certificate of election was issued in favor of Trump and Pence,” Chesebro told Troupis on November 18, 2020. “However, a fair reading of federal law suggests that this is a sensible course of action.”
After losing his lawsuit, Troupis complained before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, then controlled by the GOP. He also called on the US Supreme Court to “overturn” the Wisconsin election entirely and place it in the hands of the state’s Republican-controlled legislature. This attempt also failed.
Troupis did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
