7. There you go. A taste of his own medicine. Except this case has a basis in reality.

And they need to get these Michigan GOP legislators to testify.

Right now they are denying that they discussed the election with Trump.

I'd like to see them testify to that under oath.

I was an absentee voter who doesn't want his vote invalidated.

19. Relief sought.....

Snip from PDF:
PRAYER FOR RELIEF

WHEREFORE, Plaintiffs pray that this Court:

(A) Declare that Defendants have engaged in conduct violating Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act;
Case 1:20-cv-03388 Document 1 Filed 11/20/20

(B) Enjoin Defendants, and anyone acting on behalf of Defendants or in concert with them, from continuing to exert pressure on state or local officials in Michigan, or in any other state, to disenfranchise Plaintiffs or other Black voters by not certifying the results of the November 2020 election, or by appointing an unlawful slate of electors that disenfranchises Plaintiffs or other Black voters or from taking other action in violation of Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act; and

(C) Grant such other relief as this Court may deem just and proper.

In other words, they want the court to tell tRump and his band of thieves to STFU.

KY..............

25. section 11b of the voting rights act says......

"b) No person, whether acting under color of law or otherwise, shall intimidate, threaten, or coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person for voting or attempting to vote, or intimidate, threaten, or coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person for urging or aiding any person to vote or attempt to vote, or intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person for exercising any powers or duties under section 3(a), 6, 8, 9, 10, or 12(e). "

sounds like a decent case to me.

27. Yes, and it does not say......

said attempts have to be a physical action at a polling location. Can possibly be verbal or visual intimidation by phone, mail, internet or even a sign or billboard.

Very broad, as it should be.........

Thanks for the post.

32. Good. Maybe Dems should be doing a lot of suing. One reason Trump Slime & Co is suing so much is

to give the appearance that something is wrong to those many, many Americans who don't pay that close attention to politics. We need to fight for real, but also in the arena of propaganda, where Rs are winning because we so often don't engage.

33. Can't wait to see if this gets to the SCOTUS. Just to think about whether any Republicans will

or won't see and feel themselves and their silence judged, as well.
