Incredulous Nevada judge slaps down Trump’s ‘voter fraud’ suit: ‘What are you asking for?’ [View all]

Source: RawStory

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign sued the state of Nevada on Tuesday and alleged that hundreds of voters in Clark County were illegally allowed to vote after early voting hours had ended.
Judge Gloria Sturman, who heard the campaign’s case on Tuesday afternoon, sounded highly skeptical of the lawsuit — and often seemed incredulous at the Trump camp’s claims and requests.

In particular, she couldn’t seem to believe that the Trump campaign was asking her to order Clark County officials to preserve early voting records from the date of November 4th 2016. Sturman answered this request by noting that officials are already obligated to preserve these records. “What are you asking for?” she asked a Trump attorney at one point. “I can’t obligate him to do something he’s already obligated to do — he’s already obligated to do it!”

Sturman also blasted the Trump attorney’s request to make a list of poll workers available to be interviewed by the campaign’s attorneys to talk about when they cut off voting on Friday evening.

“I am not going to expose people doing their civic duty to help their fellow citizens vote to public attention, ridicule and harassment,” she shot back at him.
