Journalist Raheem Kassam has obtained court documents from a Trump legal source that confirms thousands of provisional ballots will be set aside in Pennsylvania.
Those provisional ballots were to be separated until officials could determine if they were validly cast, according to an order by the Commonwealth Court in a lawsuit brought by Republican candidates.
This could be a very huge deal in Pennsylvania. If Trump can somehow battle it out and win the state, everything could change.
Here’s the breaking news report from Kassam:
Trump campaign in PA has obtained a court order which effectively means thousands of provisional ballots will be set aside for up to 6 days. This comes after Trump lawyers found out Dems were informing their voters to “cure” their own side’s mail-in ballots.
Other media is covering this story but without the background of WHY this is happening. Effectively, Trump lawyers suspect Dems of inspecting ballots in advance and advising their side to vote provisionally again.
Not only does this not make sense from a “OMG COVID SO DONT VOTE IN PERSON!” perspective (because they had to go in person to do the provisional ballots) but it also throws a tonne more votes back on the table for up to 6 more days.For example, of 6,000 in Montgomery County, the lawyers have reviewed 731, of which 80% have been formally challenged.
