Pro-Trump rally overshadowed by group seeking to tally every vote in Philadelphia

Source: Washington Post

PHILADELPHIA — Mail-in ballots are steadily being tallied in Philadelphia, a blue stronghold in a swing state vital to both presidential hopefuls. As of early Thursday, Biden held 79 percent of the votes vs. Trump’s 20 percent, with 97 percent of the divisions reporting.

Outside the downtown convention center, where workers have been counting votes around-the-clock since Tuesday night, about 100 people were waving signs Thursday that read, “Count every vote.” The mood was gleeful; a DJ played Kenny Gamble and James Brown while activists danced. “We’re out here to bring good vibes,” organizer Nelini Stamp said. “We want to show the masses that we want every vote to be counted.”

Across the street, about a dozen more subdued pro-Trump supporters questioned the legality of mail-in ballots being counted. “We’re very concerned with the integrity of the election,” said Dercy Teixeira, an organizer with FreedomWorks in D.C. “We agree every vote counts, but only every legal vote.”

1. "We agree every vote counts, but only every legal vote."

Bullshit. Any vote not for Trump is considered "illegal" to them.

They are there to disrupt a very legal vote count, nothing more.
