Sidney Powell, the lawyer recently distanced from the Trump campaign, on Wednesday filed typo-filed lawsuits in both Michigan and Georgia alleging election fraud.

The suits allege problems linked to voting machines, mail-in ballots and former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, according to Bloomberg. Powell repeatedly alleged these issues, without providing evidence, while she was a member of the Trump campaign’s legal team.

The suits also include claims about forged ballots and observers being unable to watch vote tabulation, Bloomberg notes. 

President Trump and his allies have repeatedly alleged that the election was riddled with widespread voter fraud despite 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 reports. 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.
