Trump threatens lawsuit to block mail-in voting in Nevada

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump threatened legal action Monday after Nevada’s legislature passed a bill to mail ballots to all active voters, suggesting the measure would make it impossible for Republicans to win there in November’s general election.

“In an illegal late night coup, Nevada’s clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation. Using Covid to steal the state. See you in Court!”

The president’s social media post came after Nevada state lawmakers approved legislation on Sunday to automatically send mail-in ballots to voters. Nevada Gov. Stephen Sisolak, a Democrat, is expected to sign the legislation into law.

Trump has aggressively advocated for in-person voting in recent months even as state-level election officials move expand mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic, which many fear could be easily spread at polling places.

2. I have come to the conclusion that . . .

t-rump does not care even if it hurts his supporters, he does not care about anyone except himself. That's it.

9. It's always been the case since the first day he began to breathe.

Isn't it? Re: "he does not care about anyone except himself" as long as it benefits (or will benefit) him.

6. Only a person totally aware he can only win an election by blocking

millions of votes would threaten to sue. He has no standing to sue any state. The Constitution gives the states control of their election processes.

11. That's how Putin does it in Russia.

He (almost) only allows those who will vote for him to vote.

Right there, he admits it--rethuglicans only win by voter suppression and cheating.

12. Geeez. His first idea to sue someone

He is talking out of his ass, as usual. Sue them for what?

Last time I checked, states are responsible for their own elections.

He is admitting that he can't win if more people vote. Republicans should think about that.

13. The only reason mail in voting makes it impossible for rethugs to win

is because the Russians can't hack paper. They need a machine connected to the internet.

But it's one of those states always close enough to steal. These assholes are not even trying to hide it.

16. The Democratic leadership needs to get it out there that THAT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.

Joe Manchin has started it (notice of injunction to prevent any USPS closings...), they need to expand it to cover ANY action by the turd.

They only get away with it if we allow them to.

17. Hmm. Who is going to tell him that the individual states control the voting?

Unless he can prove some violation of the Voting Rights Act he is screwed on trying to stop mail in voting. Sorry Donnie.

Nevada lawmakers OK mailing voters ballots, Trump slams move

By SAM METZ | August 3, 2020 at 11:50 AM EDT - Updated August 3 at 11:50 AM

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada state lawmakers passed a bill Sunday that would add the state to a growing list of U.S. states that will mail active voters ballots ahead of the November election amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The bill now heads to Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat. If he signs it as expected, Nevada will join seven states that plan on automatically sending voters mail ballots, including California and Vermont, which moved earlier this summer to adopt automatic mail ballot policies.

President Donald Trump called the bill's passage "an illegal late night coup" in a tweet Monday morning. He accused Sisolak of exploiting COVID-19 to ensure votes in Nevada would favor Democrats.

"Nevada's clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state. Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation ... See you in court!"

...............................................

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske told lawmakers Friday that she wasn’t aware of any fraud in the June primary, when Nevada mailed all active voters absentee ballots and only opened a limited number of polling places to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

23. Fuck our worthless God Damned media!

He didn't fucking "threaten" anything. He just farted some shit out on Twitter.

A fucking lawsuit requires briefs, and filings, and citations of law and presedence, and standing, and discovery, and some type of proof.

Fuck Politico for turning a bullshit, barely literate, nonsensical written example of a person's mental break into a "lawsuit".

24. THIS IS TRUMP'S PLOT...

to sabotage the USPS. The nitwit he put in charge has already ordered employees to shut down the automatic address sorters and now SORT ALL MAIL BY HAND. Then when your mail is delayed who is going to be blamed....USPS. Another EXCUSE Trump will use to JUSTIFY privatizing our mail service. Don't BE FOOLED by this PLOY!
