Trump campaign files another Hail Mary Supreme Court petition to overturn Pennsylvania loss

 Donald Trump's campaign team filed an appeal to the Supreme Court against the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for several decisions to change the state's mail-in voting laws before and after the 2020 presidential election.

They are seeking the Supreme Court to overturn several decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to rule it was lawful for the state to change its election laws in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement from the president's campaign's legal team, they allege that the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court overstepped and is in violation of Article II of the Constitution. It also claims the decision to change election laws goes against the verdict in Bush v. Gore.


'The outcome of the election for the Presidency of the United States hangs in the balance,' the statement indicates.

Specifically, the team is challenging these decisions by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court regarding mail ballots, which resolved multiple cases overall.

The opinions prohibited countries from comparing signatures on mail ballots to those on file and stopped campaigns and political parties from being able to challenge ballots as they were being counted and processed.

They also put limitations on observers to vote count in Philadelphia – Pennsylvania's biggest and most liberal city – and allowed ballots to be counted even if voters did not fill out the address or the date was absent or illegible on the envelope.

'Collectively, these three decisions resulted in counting approximately 2.6 million mail ballots in violation of the law as enacted by the Pennsylvania Legislature,' reads the petition requesting the Supreme Court to take up the case.

Trump's legal team argues Pennsylvania's highest court violated due process, bypassed the legislative process in determining how federal elections are ran and did not give equal protection by treating ballots differently county to county.

If the state's Supreme Court did violate any of these constitutional terms, the campaign said that would mean 'over 110,000 invalid ballots were illegally counted — more than enough to have affected the outcome of the election, where the margin between the two principal candidates for President currently stands at 80,558.'

The elevated case comes as Trump continues to float claims of widespread voter fraud – without providing much evidence.

Several of his cases have already been thrown out at all court levels, some were tossed before even being heard.

In this case, the campaign is represented by Chapman University Professor John Eastman and former Pennsylvania State Senator Bruce Marks.

Eastman wrote a controversial op-ed in Newsweek questioning vice president-elect Kamala Harris' eligibility for office.

Marks is a Republican who appeared to have lost his 1993 election in Philadelphia before a federal judge declared him the winner after finding his opponent engaged in absentee-ballot fraud.
