The Supreme Court made an election-related ruling that left Donald Trump in despair
Both Houses of Congress certified the results of the 2020 election.
The President got some more bad news.
And now the Supreme Court made an election related ruling that left Donald Trump in despair.
On Monday, the Supreme Court refused to expedite challenges to mail-in voting laws in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Supreme Court rejected Monday requests to expedite consideration of election lawsuits that challenge election results in battleground states.
In an unsigned order, the court wrote that “the motion of petitioners to expedite consideration of the petition for writ of mandamus is denied” for several cases, including one filed against Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and one against the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
Pennsylvania Congressmen challenged a 2020 law passed by the legislature allowing for no-excuse mail-in voting because the state Constitution forbids it.
In Wisconsin, two cases challenged 90,000 ballots left in unattended drop boxes and election officials allegedly encouraged residents to claim they were indefinitely confined due to COVID to qualify for mail-in voting.
Shady practices and illegal changes to election law are why so few Republicans have faith that the 2020 election was free and fair.
The Supreme Court delaying hearing these cases will only delay accountability and the ability to restore trust in elections.
Justices obviously did not want to hear the case before January 20 because it would look like they were providing an avenue for Donald Trump to overturn the election.
But Americans need to have confidence that when they vote it counts and that Democrats aren’t manipulating the laws to give themselves an unfair advantage.
That can only happen if the Supreme Court hears these cases and correctly rules on them.
