NEW - YES! Marc Elias and DemocracyDocket have filed to intervene in GOP suit in PA!


On the same day that Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. was declared the
winner of Pennsylvania’s electoral votes, President Trump’s personal attorney
announced the Trump Campaign’s intention to sue to invalidate hundreds of
thousands of Pennsylvanians’ votes based on demonstrably false allegations that
Trump Campaign representatives were not permitted to observe the review and
counting of absentee and mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. This lawsuit followed two
days later. Plaintiffs, the Trump Campaign and two individual voters, assert
violations of the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause and Equal Protection
Clause, the Electors and Elections Clauses, and 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging that some
County Boards of Elections counted ballots without the presence of poll watchers;
those who observed the counting of ballots were not permitted to scrutinize each
individual absentee or mail-in ballot envelope; and voters who reside in the
Defendant Counties were allegedly treated differently than qualified electors in other
parts of the state. Compl. ¶¶ 159-243. These claims have no basis in law or fact.
Plaintiffs seek to invalidate ballots based on a non-existent right of Trump
Campaign representatives to review individual absentee and mail-in ballots. The
remedy sought is dramatic and extends to all ballots cast in Pennsylvania—upwards
of 6.75 million votes—including those cast in-person. But just as in the recently dismissed case, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. v. Philadelphia County, No. 20-

05533 (E.D. Pa. Nov. 5, 2020), the Trump Campaign once again fails to identify any
cognizable injury under federal or state law. There is still no constitutional right to
poll watch, so the Trump Campaign is not injured by state law setting forth the
parameters for authorized individuals to observe the review and counting of absentee
and mail-in ballots. Moreover, such ballots were counted with poll watchers from
the Trump Campaign present. And Plaintiffs’ allegations regarding allegedly
disparate treatment reflect nothing more than counties lawfully following the
Secretary’s guidance allowing eligible voters to cast provisional ballots if their
“mail-in or absentee ballot was rejected for a reason unrelated to the voter’s
qualifications.” Pa. Dep’t of State, Pennsylvania Provisional Voting Guidance,
(Oct. 21, 2020), https://www.dos.pa.gov/VotingElections/OtherServicesEvents/Do
cuments/PADOS_ProvisionalBallots_guidance_1.0.pdf. Plaintiffs’ requested
remedy—setting aside at least 6.75 million ballots, or in the alternative, “only” more
than 680,000 ballots—not only violates state law, it obliterates the constitutional
rights of voters and candidates and improperly inserts this Court into issues of state
law and election administration minutia.

Go get 'em, Marc!

Lawyers Litigating for Trump Suddenly Remember Their Licenses Are on the Line If They Lie to a Judge

It was apparent to legal commentators that one of the lawyers arguing the Montgomery County case before Common Pleas Judge Richard P. Haaz was not going to risk losing his law license by lying in court. Some also noted that sanctions may be issued where frivolous lawsuits have been filed.






On Tuesday, Judge Haaz promptly put Trump campaign attorney Jonathan S. Goldstein on the spot. The judge asked him point-blank if the campaign was actually alleging any fraud. Goldstein went to bat for President Trump while admitting that he was not alleging fraud, uttering the phrase (twice): “To my knowledge at present, no.” Legal experts said that Goldstein’s remarks were typical of a lawyer unwilling to risk sanctions or bar discipline in service of a client.

starting tomorrow, or at least by next week, every lawsuit dismissed immediately should result in sanctions on any lawyer/firm involved in bringing it before the courts!

CNN - GA SOS says, essentially, Biden has won GA and "Risk Limiting Audit" will confirm that

Georgia's Secretary of State on @CNN

Asked if the current Biden lead will hold, Sec. Raffensperger said, "we believe the ballots were counted accurately and the Risk Limiting Audit will confirm that."

They all KNOW the truth. Just have to get them all to publicly accept it!

Tweet of the afternoon

A shame that the Trumps won’t meet with the Bidens at the White House. Joe and Jill could give them a tour and explain the history.

NEW - the GOP just will NOT give up with frivolous suits. Yet ANOTHER just filed in PA

Seems eerily similar in claims to the Wayne County, MI suit (which has been noted as multiple examples of extraordinary lack of knowledge of how elections are actually performed)

Another day, another GOP lawsuit in Pennsylvania.

Note--they still haven't won a single court case.

link to complaint:

Wonderful thread on latest GOP case in Detroit, MI. Claims are a FARCE!

Trust me...click thru to this and keep reading (and go up to the top for background, too...)


The City of Detroit filed a response in a related state case. It discusses some of the issues the Republican poll watchers observed, and basically says the things they thought were suspicious were the process working as it was supposed to, which they didn't understand.

re: PA Electors and the legislature....

PA's Electors, as all states, are chosen BEFORE election starts & canNOT be changed AFTER election. It's just fear-mongering from seditious members of #TraitorGOP PA State Legislature has NO say in the matter

Pennsylvania lawmakers have no role to play in deciding the presidential election

any bs from the PA legislature that these are not "normal circumstances" is pure bluster meant to placate trump and the gop for now while the GA runoff is still pending to keep the base all riled up

There is ZERO legal standing to change the slate of Electors.
