Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers urged a judge to toss out a lawsuit by former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell challenging the state’s election results, calling her voter-fraud claims “rampant with wild speculation and conspiratorial conclusions.”

The suit on behalf of would-be GOP elector William Feehan includes implausible claims that have “nothing specific to do with Wisconsin” being made by people “with no actual firsthand knowledge” of anything they allege, the governor, a Democrat, said in a filing Wednesday in federal court in Milwaukee.
