Another Trump court loss

Recommended Posts

Well, I do not have any inclination to sift through all the political tripe in here, so I post this in the first "post-election lawsuit" thread I could find.

But I found this an interesting read:

The article is mainly targeted against the lawsuit-fundraiser of the replublicans, but mentions in one sentence that the Democrats are no saints either.

"Rudolph W. Giuliani, who has helped oversee a string of failed court challenges to President Trump’s defeat in the election, asked the president’s campaign to pay him $20,000 a day for his legal work, multiple people briefed on the matter said.

The request stirred opposition from some of Mr. Trump’s aides and advisers, who appear to have ruled out paying that much, and it is unclear how much Mr. Giuliani will ultimately be compensated."

Don't be discouraged about this trump donators remember trump is matching donations 1,000 percent.

I did manage to find this exclusive photo of trump, McConnell and Giuliani having lunch together.

What's that now, 31 cases thrown out of court? Now he's claiming it's up to Biden to prove he received 80 Million votes. What a national embarrassment. Thanks Trump voters.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/29/pennsylvania-supreme-court-throws-out-republican-bid-to-reject-25m-mail-in-votes

Pennsylvania’s highest court has thrown out a lower court’s order that was preventing the state from certifying dozens of contests from the 3 November election.

In the latest Republican lawsuit attempting to thwart president-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the battleground state, the state supreme court unanimously threw out the three-day-old order, saying the underlying lawsuit was filed months after the law allowed for challenges to Pennsylvania’s year-old mail-in voting law.

Justices also remarked on the lawsuit’s staggering demand that an entire election be overturned retroactively. “They have failed to allege that even a single mail-in ballot was fraudulently cast or counted,” justice David Wecht wrote in a concurring opinion.

. . . .

The defeat followed Friday’s decision by a federal appeals court to to dismiss a separate challenge to the Pennsylvania result and back a district judge who likened likened the president’s evidence-free and error-strewn lawsuit to “Frankenstein’s monster”.

. . . .

The ruling, which was the Trump team’s 38th court defeat in election lawsuits nationwide, reaffirmed US district judge Matthew Brann’s earlier view of Giuliani’s complaint, delivered after he listened to five hours of oral arguments last week. The lawsuit, Brann said, was: “like Frankenstein’s Monster … haphazardly stitched together.”

Gotta give credit to the judge for knowing the distinction between 'Frankenstein' (the mad scientist) and 'Frankenstein's Monster' (the creature). 

Not everyone knows the difference.

The taller one is the monster:
