Stenehjem to Waste Tax Dollars in Disgraceful Attack on Free and Fair Elections

BISMARCK, ND — Today North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem joined the lawsuit asking the Supreme Court to undo democracy in the United States. President Trump and his allies are 1-53 in post-election lawsuits as of Wednesday after repeatedly making baseless claims that entirely lack evidence or legal merit.

The Democratic-NPL Party Chairwoman Kylie Oversen said:

“U.S. courts have already thrown out more than 50 of these lawsuits for completely lacking evidence, unsubstantiated claims, and shoddy legal arguments. Along with putting his integrity as an attorney in serious doubt, joining this lawsuit undermines the foundation of the republic. How would North Dakotans feel if New York’s attorney general said our votes shouldn’t count? That’s what this is. No less. It’s a disgraceful attack on free and fair elections and will do lasting damage to the nation, not to mention waste North Dakota’s tax dollars.”
