Ex-Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell files lawsuits in Michigan, Georgia
Sidney Powell, the lawyer recently distanced from the Trump campaign, on Wednesday filed typo-filled lawsuits in both Michigan and Georgia alleging election fraud.
The suits alleged problems linked to voting machines, mail-in ballots and former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, according to Bloomberg. Powell repeatedly made the accusations without providing evidence while she was a member of the Trump campaign's legal team.
The new suits also included allegations about forged ballots and observers being unable to watch vote tabulation, Bloomberg reported.
President Trump and his allies have repeatedly alleged that the election was riddled with widespread voter fraud without providing any evidence.
Both of the cases filed by Powell were riddled with typographical issues.
The case in Michigan had a number of formatting problems that removed spacing between words, Bloomberg reported. In the Georgia suit, the word district was misspelled twice on the first page of the document: There was an extra c for "DISTRICCT," and then it was spelled "DISTRCOICT."
The Trump campaign distanced itself from Powell on Sunday after she made a series of increasingly convoluted and baseless allegations about voter fraud.
She previously appeared alongside former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and other members of the campaign's legal team, including at a widely criticized press conference last week detailing the campaign's unsuccessful efforts to halt or overturn the certification results in several battleground states that were called by media outlets for President-elect Joe Biden.
During the press conference, Powell alleged that Dominion Voting Systems, which supplies voting machines across the United States, used technology developed by Chávez, who died in 2013. She said votes were being manipulated overseas to favor Biden.
Powell has never provided evidence of her claims, and Fox News's Tucker Carlson said last week that when his show pressed her for proof, she "got angry and told us to stop contacting her."
Powell is also the attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was pardoned by Trump on Wednesday.
