    Good.

    Powell has no connection to Trump, at least none that will help here. Anything she said, such as "Dominion is filled with criminal fraud working for Chavez" that is known to be both damaging and false is on her.

    Well we don't know for sure yet. He paid for two counties to do a recount and Milwaukee county is just one of them...maybe he'll have more luck with the other one.

    Though I sincerely doubt he'll have 20k votes' worth of luck.

    Well, it's a "smart" idea when you're using whatever amount of money you raised over the 3 million required that you convinced your followers to give you for a pointless recount to pay off the other debts you accrued. Just like how him continually opening a string of casinos to pay off the previous failing casinos and running off with the excess was a "smart" idea back then.

    For what it's worth the recount in 16 also gave Trump more votes. Just seems to be how recounts in WI go, the winning candidate wins more.

    Even if Trump's claims are bullshit and there's no substance, Trump will likely try to get the SCOTUS to review it and there's historical precedence for the SCOTUS being involved in a state's voting process. If the SCOTUS has any integrity, it will dismissed. Since ACB is on the bench now though, there's a chance she could tip the balance.
    I don't think the supreme court will even see it. They don't want to put themselves in this situation. Florida 2000 was one state with 500 votes that decided the election, they felt comfortable coming out and appointing their guy winner. This isn't 2000 they need to flip at least 3 states with no basis and no states are having any of the "hanging chad" issues or the myriad other problems florida had in 2000.

    I simply don't see any reason to fear the supreme court getting involved, it would be so completely unprecedented that we would actually be looking at Kokulums dream coming true.

    Here's a funny development:

    Donor to pro Trump group sues to get his money back after dropped election lawsuits.

    2.5 million bones! Would be spectacular if this turned class action.

    Man, you’d think someone who had 2.5 million dollars to spare would know better than to huck it into the trump fire.

    He probably expected them to use resources to help with the nonsense effort but instead they just crumpled their legal efforts and don't seem to have made any efforts into making up nonsense like Kraken idiot did.

    I hate that Stop the Count didn’t become a slogan... we could have had ReCount... it’s the same as the Count, but with a goatee... fight the Count for supremacy.

    What are your thoughts on this case? Apparently the PA, someone filed a suit that said the PA expansion of absentee votes is unconstitutional, because expansions to voting rights require a constitutional amendment. The judge issued a court order to stop the certification of votes because he says there is a good chance they will win that case.

    https://joannenova.com.au/2020/11/up...il-in-ballots/

    I can't imagine they'd throw out all those absentee votes from people who voted what they thought was legally following the instructions from the state? I only see people cheering about this on r/conservative, haven't seen any mentions of it anywhere else, so I'm not sure if it's BS or not.

    Wasn't this the one that didn't affect the presidential election according to the governor?

    I'm not sure! There have been so many, it's hard to keep track. At the bottom of the article it mentions:
    The Judge carefully explains at the end that harm would be done in tossing out 7 million votes of the people of Pennsylvania, but no harm is done in holding off until Dec 8th (the safe harbour date) to consider the evidence.
    So it SOUNDS like something that might be impactful. I dunno

    No, 7m is the total number of votes in PA. Only 10k votes would be affected, and Biden's margin is 80k, so...

    Besides, the case is ridiculous. No voting rights were changed. Those votes still had to be turned in by 8pm on Election Day, they were just turned in to the federal government (ie, post office) as opposed to the local government. No extra time was allowed to the voter, just the government apparatus.

    Bullshit lawsuits gonna bullshit.

    I don't think any judge will throw out 7 million votes. Not if they want to keep any form of credibility. At worst I can see them saying that the results stand but that the law needs to be changed in accordance with the constitution. But then, I'm not American and I might have too much faith in judges.

    Ok, cool. I need to stop reading r/conservative. On one hand, it's kinda funny, but on the other, it's freakin terrifying.

    Agreed. They're using this farcically hypothetical alternative of throwing out 7m votes as an excuse to stop and look more closely at this lawsuit, in a thinly veiled attempt to lend it credence.

    Or they can try to throw out all of PA's votes entirely as it sounds here...

    If they do that, PA is going to have 26 vacant spot in its congress.

    So...both the Republican speaker and majority leaders say: we have nothing to do with this, we don't want anything to do with this AND we're not letting it advance, YET 26 republicans are trying to crawl as far up Trump's ass as they can in order to deliver PA to him? Do I understand that correctly?
