Trump campaign threatens to sue over Philly election offices
By MARC LEVY
an hour ago

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s campaign has threatened a lawsuit by Wednesday afternoon if it does not gain access soon for its campaign officials to observe activity inside newly opened satellite election offices in Philadelphia, where people can register to vote, apply for mail-in ballots and fill them out.

A letter, sent late Tuesday night by a lawyer representing the Trump campaign, insisted the campaign has a legal right to observe the voting process in the heavily Democratic city’s satellite election offices.

“If we have not satisfactorily resolved this matter by tomorrow at 5 p.m., the campaign will seek court intervention,” the lawyer, Linda Kerns, wrote.

Election lawyers say there is no right under Pennsylvania law, even for a certified poll watcher, to observe inside an election office where someone is registering to vote, applying for a mail-in ballot or filling one out.

3. This was just debunked on msnbc,

the observer was not denied access to an election site, the observer was denied access to a location that was not an election site. Trump is lying once again.

5. I remember Rachel saying the other night

that trump team's goal is to replace the electors that are in place with ones of THEIR choosing, they must claim some kind of fraud to be able to take the steps to do so. They know that they will lose the 20 electoral votes in PA unless they steal it.

6. We need a public talley of trump suits to repress blue voting state and

nationwide.

'cons may think they get more bang for the buck on vote suppression, rather than other campaign methods.

7. There is no "in person early voting" in PA and these are not "polling locations"

Residents of Pennsylvania who want to vote "in person" will only be able to do so in an ACTUAL "polling place", that will have poll watchers and Judges of Election, etc., and that will ONLY happen ON ELECTION DAY November 3, 2020.
