Trump's campaign presented 'hearsay written on a sticky note' in court as evidence of voter fraud

Raw Story
November 9, 2020
By Brad Reed

President Donald Trump’s campaign is still trying to raise legal challenges to votes cast in the 2020 election — but so far it has lost in all five of the court cases it has pursued.

The Washington Post has taken a look at some of the Trump campaign’s multiple failed efforts to get votes tossed out in several swing states, and one particularly egregious failure came in the state of Michigan, where the campaign’s evidence amounted to a piece of hearsay that had been scribbled onto a post-it note.

Specifically, Judge Cynthia Diane Stephens of the Michigan First District Court of Appeals last week rejected the Trump campaign’s efforts to halt the counting of absentee ballots in the state based on hearsay from a GOP election observer.

“In that case, a Republican election observer said she’d been given a sticky note by an unnamed poll worker, alleging that late-arriving ballots were being counted improperly,” the Post reports. “But she couldn’t provide the poll worker’s name or any other proof.”

1. And what did the note say was improper?

They just say improper but what does that mean.

3. That's an Impermissible Legal Conclusion w/o Factual Support

that's 2 reasons it constitutes "No evidence" under the law

4. It means they made the whole thing up

It's sort of the reverse of the "the dog ate my homework", instead more like "here's my homework the dog vomited up".

5. These challenges should be considered frivilous and sanctions applied against the attorneys dumb

enough to present them in court. I believe the attorneys have to certify that they have conducted the necessary due diligence to establish legitimate legal or factual evidence to back up their lawsuits. Penalties can be applied against the attorney as well as their law firm and include the possibility of being held in contempt of court.

8. I once went up against a prosecutor

Who thought it wasn't hearsay if you just spelled it out instead of saying it I kid you not.
