NEW - the GOP just will NOT give up with frivolous suits. Yet ANOTHER just filed in PA

Seems eerily similar in claims to the Wayne County, MI suit (which has been noted as multiple examples of extraordinary lack of knowledge of how elections are actually performed)

Another day, another GOP lawsuit in Pennsylvania.

Note--they still haven't won a single court case.

Wonderful thread on latest GOP case in Detroit, MI. Claims are a FARCE!

Trust me...click thru to this and keep reading (and go up to the top for background, too...)

The City of Detroit filed a response in a related state case. It discusses some of the issues the Republican poll watchers observed, and basically says the things they thought were suspicious were the process working as it was supposed to, which they didn't understand.

re: PA Electors and the legislature....

https://twitter.com/Scr0dman/status/1326583363340279810
PA's Electors, as all states, are chosen BEFORE election starts & canNOT be changed AFTER election. It's just fear-mongering from seditious members of #TraitorGOP PA State Legislature has NO say in the matter

Pennsylvania lawmakers have no role to play in deciding the presidential election
https://www.centredaily.com/opinion/article246527648.html


any bs from the PA legislature that these are not "normal circumstances" is pure bluster meant to placate trump and the gop for now while the GA runoff is still pending to keep the base all riled up

There is ZERO legal standing to change the slate of Electors.

NEW - Marc Elias - NOT a good day for trumpGOP in court!

https://twitter.com/marceelias/status/1326355734062362624
And so, the day ends with the Trump campaign dismissing its own appeal from the Nevada Supreme Court.

Some day, I will reflect back on the Trump legal strategy and be like Upside-down face.

Today in court, a Pennsylvania judge asked a lawyer for Trump point-blank whether he was alleging fraud.

This is an illustration of how small the fights are the Trump campaign is picking. They are losing in court everywhere, but even if they win their cases, it's not enough votes to change the results.

As someone who litigates a lot of post-election cases, I find it all quite odd.

Just in: Pennsylvania Secretary of State reports just 10k ballots came in between Nov. 3 and Nov. 6. Biden wins Pennsylvania without those votes.

A brief observation about the current state of the counting process...

One of the big reasons there's so much anxiety over final counting is we're now watching the mundane, tedious period when provisionals come into play & final numbers finally come into view, but not w/o a lot of slow, pain-staking processing.

Everything is working as it should be
