Choose Dismisses Trump Lawsuit Looking for to Delay Certification in Pennsylvania
A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Saturday night dismissed a Trump campaign claim alleging there were widespread inadequacies in postal ballot papers in the state, ending recent major efforts to delay the planned confirmation of voting results in Pennsylvania on Monday.
In a damning injunction, Judge Matthew W. Brann wrote that Mr Trump’s campaign calling for the effective disenfranchisement of nearly seven million voters should have come to trial “armed with compelling legal arguments and factual evidence rampant Corruption “essentially nullifies the results of the Pennsylvania election.
Instead, complained Judge Brann, the Trump campaign only produced “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative allegations” that were “unsupported by evidence.”
The November 9 lawsuit accused Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and several counties with largely Democratic populations of unfairly handling mail-in ballot papers, which were used in unprecedented numbers in this year’s election. The lawsuit alleged that the Democratic counties, led by Ms. Boockvar, gave voters who had submitted postal ballot papers with minor defects the option to “heal” or repair them, while counties with a predominantly Republican population did not give up voters drew attention to incorrect ballot papers.
According to the campaign, this violates the equality clause of the US Constitution.
Judge Brann, however, rejected this argument and compared it to Frankenstein’s monster that had been “arbitrarily stitched together”. He ruled that the Trump campaign, unable to make the claim, could not prove it had suffered damage when some districts, awaiting a deluge of postal ballot papers, helped their voters cast proper ballots while others did not.
“The fact that some counties may have chosen to implement Ms. Boockvar’s proposals while others did not” is not a violation of the same protection, “wrote Judge Brann.
