Oh yeah, Trump is desperate not to lose Pennsylvania.
Courtesy of The Hill:
President Trump’s reelection campaign is suing Pennsylvania’s secretary of state and 67 county election boards in an effort to change how mail-in ballots are sent and counted.
The federal lawsuit was filed in Pittsburgh on Monday by the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, and four Pennsylvania Republican members of Congress: Glen Thompson, Mike Kelly, John Joyce and Guy Reschenthaler.
“To be free and fair, elections must be transparent and verifiable. Yet, Defendants have inexplicably chosen a path that jeopardizes election security and will lead -and has already led – to the disenfranchisement of voters, questions about the accuracy of election results, and ultimately chaos heading into the upcoming November 3, 2020 General Election,” the lawsuit reads.
The suit claims the issues are a “direct result” of Pennsylvania’s “hazardous hurried, and illegal implementation of unmonitored mail-in voting” that the Trump campaign and Republicans claim can lead to fraud and “chaos.”
Well, this is an obviously transparent attempt to retain the ability to steal this election.
It should be noted that Pennsylvania, like many states, has always allowed for mail-in voting.
The only thing that has changed is that they are now allowing every voter to use mail-in-ballots without providing a reason for why they need them.
This does not mean that suddenly there will be a huge influx of fraudulent votes, that would surely be flagged and dealt with anyway, but that more people will be able to vote in the election.
And that, THAT is what is really scaring Trump and his campaign.
