Trump's Pennsylvania Suit is 'Incoherent Conspiracy,' Voters Say

(Bloomberg) -- The Trump campaign’s lawsuit seeking to block Pennsylvania from certifying its election result is based on “absurd” logic contradicted by the facts in its own complaint, groups representing voters told a federal judge.

President Donald Trump, who alleges a vast Democratic conspiracy in his refusal to concede defeat in the Nov. 3 election, has “utterly failed” to produce evidence of such a fraud while seeking to scrap tens of thousands of votes over technical disputes related to mail-in ballots, the groups said in a filing Friday evening.

The campaign seeks “to justify mass disenfranchisement with an incoherent conspiracy theory,” the groups, including the Pennsylvania chapters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the League of Women Voters, said in the filing in Williamsport.

“We did not establish a representative democracy to ask courts to ‘declare’ who wins our elections,” the groups said.

Which is a polite way of saying he's full of shit.

1. I read somewhere else where a suit is being file from voters and back of NAACP, I believe against

Trump. I truly love that idea and would like to see that grow. Good to hear the push back.

4. Detroit did it. Cities in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Georgia need to do the same.

A new lawsuit alleges Trump’s effort to overturn Michigan’s election results disenfranchises Black voters

Trump and his allies have lobbied for votes in Wayne County, home to majority Black Detroit, to be thrown out.

With Michigan’s Monday deadline for certifying its election results looming, attempts by President Donald Trump to overturn the outcome in the state has led to a voting rights lawsuit — and could lead to a criminal investigation of officials there.

On Friday, a group of Detroit voters filed a federal lawsuit, alleging that the Trump campaign’s legal actions aimed at throwing out some votes in Wayne County, home to Detroit, amounted to a mass disenfranchisement of Black voters.

“Repeating false claims of voter fraud, which have been thoroughly debunked, Defendants are pressuring state and local officials in Michigan not to count votes from Wayne County, Michigan,” the lawsuit states. “Defendants’ tactics repeat the worst abuses in our nation’s history, as Black Americans were denied a voice in American democracy for most of the first two centuries of the Republic.”

The city of Detroit is nearly 80 percent Black, and overwhelmingly votes Democratic in national elections. President-elect Joe Biden won Wayne County by about 332,000 votes, and it was critical to his 150,000-vote victory in Michigan, a battleground state that was key to Trump’s 2016 victory.

6. Absolutely, Thanks. I just read a law suit in Penn 4am, all mail in need to be thrown out.

Everyone needs to just start throwing lawsuits at Trump. I thought that very clever.

5. Yep. Detroit is ticked off and good for them. I hope more cities/states follow.

2. It was a "vast Democratic conspiracy," all right. Almost 80,000,000 banded together to

kick his sorry ass to the curb. That's the American way, asshole.

Loser.
