The only votes that were bad are the ones for Biden.
President Trump's lawyers have filed a new motion in Pennsylvania making clear that they only want to block the state from certifying the results of the presidential election, which they claim was fraudulent. It can certify the other races, decided on the same ballots, they say. pic.twitter.com/nbrBMJQULN— Brad Heath (@bradheath) November 20, 2020
But the only “leader” who counts is Trump. The remedy requested here is to simply declare Trump the winner and leave the other races alone. It’s as absurd as it sounds. The fraud or malfeasance or maladministration only affects Trump (he has no standing to affect the other races) and means Trump was harmed because voters got to follow PA law. That’s the problem: they’re asking the court to rewrite PA law. Basically the problem is people who voted got to correct their ballots, and presumably all those people voted for Biden, and Trump is harmed because he can’t discard those ballots, and the only cure is to declare Trump the winner. Not canvass the ballots, or assess which ballots were “improperly” amended, and tally the “legal “ ballots, but just give it to Trump. “Ya Honor, if dat ain’t justice, what is?”
The Trump campaign says PA officials "jeopardized ... the ability of Pennsylvanians to select their leaders" when they allowed some voters to correct "small errors" that would otherwise have led to their votes being discarded. This is the bottom line of its entire federal case. pic.twitter.com/QNafjkucwt— Brad Heath (@bradheath) November 20, 2020
