Texas Republicans' last-minute challenge to drive-thru voting in Harris County dismissed by appeals

This was a bogus lawsuit https://www.texastribune.org/2020/10/13/texas-republicans-voting-harris-county/amp/?__twitter_impression=true&fbclid=IwAR3ceB0waQLfb9gQjtu7YnlMJIsXjEyNtlVQBYSxKrDXGUTZIyi8fF_rA_g

Drive-thru and curbside voting programs in Harris County can continue after a state appeals court Wednesday quickly threw out a last-minute lawsuit filed by the Texas Republican Party challenging the county's efforts to provide more voting options during the coronavirus pandemic. The state GOP had filed suit Monday night asking the court to place limits on curbside voting and halt drive-thru voting.

The appellate judges said the party and a voter who filed the suit did so too late, and did not show how they specifically might be injured by the voting practices. The lawsuit was filed just hours before early voting polls opened and more than a month after the Harris County Clerk announced his plan for drive-thru voting.

"The election is currently in progress and the relators delayed filing this mandamus until over a month after learning of the actions of the Harris County Clerk’s Office," the panel of three judges on Texas' 14th Court of Appeals wrote in their ruling dismissing the case.

10/13 Dose of Joe

Friends -- see below for today's Dose of Joe.

• Yesterday, Joe Biden traveled to Ohio to talk about the economic pain working families across the state have felt as a result of President Trump’s broken promises to workers— from the closure of GM’s Lordstown plant to Trump’s threats to thousands of Ohio jobs by calling for a Goodyear boycott — and discussed his “Build Back Better” plan that will create millions of good-paying manufacturing jobs and revitalize the American auto industry. You can watch his full remarks in Toledo HERE and in Cincinnati HERE.

• Joe Biden will travel to Broward County, Florida today. In the afternoon, Vice President Biden will deliver remarks in Pembroke Pines on his vision for older Americans. You can watch HERE. After, Vice President Biden will attend an event in Miramar to encourage Floridians to make a plan to vote early.

• Doug Emhoff will travel to Virginia where he will visit Charlottesville in the morning to launch a lit drop and voter registration drive with Fifth District candidate Dr. Cameron Webb and UVA Students for Biden. In the afternoon, Emhoff will attend a registration drive and yard sign pick up event in Loudoun County with Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (VA-10), State Senator John Bell (Loudoun County), and other elected Virginia leaders. Later in the day, Emhoff will travel to Fairfax for a lit drop launch with Congressman Gerry Connolly (VA-11), Delegate Kathy Tran (Fairfax County), GMU Students for Biden, and Fairfax Democrats.

• Today, Biden for President will host a Military Service Celebration with Veterans and Military Families for Biden. Featuring Ray Mabus and Norman Lear, the celebration will recognize all military services on the 245th birthday of the U.S. Navy on October 13th, honoring our traditions and our commitment to service. The event will also provide opportunities for veterans and military families to learn more about the Biden-Harris agenda, and get involved with the campaign. RSVP HERE.

• This past week, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris earned endorsements from 19 newspapers across 14 states. The endorsements highlight Joe Biden’s leadership, experience, and empathy as the qualities America needs in a president. Citing the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic crisis, and racial inequality in this country, the editorial boards also wrote that only Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are equipped to handle this triple threat of crises and build our country back better.



@JoeBiden: Folks, we're just a few days away from our final public fundraising deadline, and we need your help to hit our goal.

Every donation — big or small — makes a big difference during these final weeks.

If you're able, please chip in:

@JoeBiden: Donald Trump is running TV ads taking Dr. Fauci out of context and without his permission.

So, here’s a message from the President in his own words.

10/13 Mike Luckovich: Making America great again


Should DU start a pool as to when trump will suffer a relapse?

trump wants to have events every day between now and the election. trump's staff is worried about trump being able to keep this schedule
COVID can last for months and trump could only speak for 18 minutes on Saturday. Relapses are common https://www.vox.com/2020/6/4/21274727/covid-19-symptoms-timeline-nausea-relapse-long-term-effects See also https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/10/06/fauci-warns-trump-relapse-president-downplays-coronavirus-death-toll/3634631001/
Anthony Fauci, an expert on infectious diseases who has exhorted the nation for months to wear masks and maintain social distance, told CNN that although it's unlikely, Trump could face "a reversal – meaning going in the wrong direction and get into trouble."

A White House-themed online gift shop may be offering $100 "Trump Beat COVID" commemorative coins too soon. The danger window can easily stretch to 10 days, said Mangala Narasimhan, an intensive care physician in New Hyde Park, New York.

"Saying that he beat COVID now is extremely premature, especially for someone his age," Narasimhan told USA TODAY on Tuesday. "He is not out of the woods yet.
Is it bad form to start a pool on when trump will either have to go back to Walter Reed or take time off the road? I personally believe that it is only a matter ot time before there is a relapse. Is it inappropriate to start a pool on this?

I will take Friday, October 16

What is the over/under on how long will trump be able to speak at this rally?


TLP-Mr. President, thank you for showing the American people exactly who and what you are.
