Johnson Won’t Get To Speak Regarding Drop Boxes

The State Supreme Court will not give Senator Ron Johnson special permission to speak at oral arguments over the use of absentee ballot drop boxes.

Attorneys for Senator Johnson filed a brief in that case but also asked the Supreme Court for equal time in oral arguments alongside the Wisconsin Elections Commission and the plaintiffs in the case.

The Court accepted those briefs but denied Johnson the right to speak at arguments. Justices said that the parties involved may cede some of their time to the Senator, but that no extra time will be granted to either side.
