      President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to step in and overturn several decisions the Pennsylvania Supreme Court made regarding the 2020 election, saying the court overstepped its bounds and “the outcome of the election for the Presidency of the United States hangs in the balance.”

      The campaign on Sunday filed a cert petition and a motion to expedite, asking the U.S. Supreme Court to fast-track the case because of the impending Jan. 6 meeting of Congress to receive the Electoral College results and the Jan. 20 inauguration.

      The challenge doesn’t center on any claims of voter fraud, despite Trump’s repeated use of baseless conspiracy theories to attack the election. Instead, it challenges three Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions on mail ballots and says the state court overstepped its constitutional role. Those opinions, which resolved multiple cases, prohibited counties from comparing mail ballot signatures to those on file; said campaigns and political parties can’t challenge ballots as they are being processed and counted; allowed limitations on observers to the vote count in Philadelphia; and allowed ballots to count even if voters had forgotten to fill out the address or date on the envelope.

      In making those decisions, the campaign argues, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court violated the U.S. Constitution in three ways: its due process clause; its equal protection guarantees, by treating ballots differently in different counties; and by taking the state legislature’s power to determine how federal elections are run.

      Hi rcw,

      In 2004 I was a poll worker in Dallas County Texas. 2004 was the first year Texas used electronic voting machines. The state purchased ES&S touch screen machines for the election.

      My main job on election day was instructing senior citizens how to use the new fangled computer voting machines. As one might imagine the elder population was a little intimidated.

      In that role, I watched “Hundreds” of straight party democratic votes switched to straight party republican votes. These were only caught when observant voters noticed the switcheroo on the review page before a final ballot was cast. These machines had no paper trail; it was all electronic.

      When this occurred, the voters that caught the error would call me over for assistance. We could usually fix the problem because the machines were apparently programmed to do the switcheroo only once per voter. There was one machine that always failed to reset and we succeeded having it removed from service at about 2:00 PM in the afternoon. I still wonder how many switched votes went unnoticed by voters in a hurry.

      All of this is to say, I have no problem accepting the possibility that the Dominion voting machines may have been programmed much like the ES&S voting machines were in 2004 as I and other poll workers observed with our own eyes.

      This was also the election over which I left the democratic party for good. The state party was unwilling to file a claim of vote tampering despite mountains of evidence that the voting machines were rigged. By contrast, the republicans are not as timid and I applaud their efforts to get to the bottom of whatever malfeasance or malfunctions occurred this last November 2020.

      seems to be printed elsewhere than where Trump wants it to appear?

      Trump just cannot help himself to keep his name out of the news. What a dick.

      He just cannot accept most people in this nation voted him out of office.

      Don’t let the screen door hit you in the ass on your way out. Good riddance.

        Hi mrdmk,

        Maybe so, but SCOTUS could decide to hear the case. And like 2000 decide in Trump’s favor. Then heads will explode. Not the least of which would be Rachel Maddow. That alone would be worth an entry fee.

          over turned the 2020 election, the country would be ungovernable. Besides, Biden can and no doubt will give away the country on a silver platter with the best of them. They do not need Trump in office to do that.

            Hi mrdmk,

            The same argument could be made in reverse. The far right is already planning massive demonstrations if the 2020 election evidence is not heard by SCOTUS. It will make the country ungovernable by Biden. So either way it is a no win situation.

      @scott crowder.  Biden was the architect of the 1994 crime bill, supported desegregation, made instrumental in promoting the iraq war, and has done a whole lot of other things.  If you weigh the evidence, Biden is probably as big a racist as Trump.
