Trump Fake: Arizona Challenge involves 180 votes, Biden Won by 14,000

In a preliminary hearing held Monday, Roopali Desai, an attorney representing the Secretary of State’s Office, described the lawsuit as “an effort to find a problem when one does not exist.” (AZCentral)

She noted the Republican Party had set up a website to solicit affidavits from voters or poll workers — undermining, she said, “the entire process and the very hard work of the many many people who are administering the election … and the voters themselves” — and argued the relief sought by the Trump campaign may not be possible under state law.

Daily Beast: Republican officials behind a lawsuit alleging poll workers incorrectly rejected votes cast in person in Arizona on Election Day are reportedly only challenging 180 votes—despite Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by more than 14,000 ballots in the state.

On Saturday, Trump’s re-election campaign announced that it had filed a lawsuit in Maricopa County alleging that poll workers didn’t tell in-person voters when electronic ballot tabulation machines rejected their votes.

GOP lawyers will make their case in front of a Maricopa County Superior Court judge this week, according to AZ Central, but a county lawyer said that just 180 votes are under question, so it’s very unlikely to have any effect on the overall result.

In a Monday hearing, Roopali Desai, an attorney for the Secretary of State’s Office, said the suit is “an effort to find a problem when one does not exist.”

  1. The most important thing to remember about this election is that the usual ways Republicans win elections in the USA didn’t work this time. Perfectly legal mail-in voting overcame the systemic voter suppression that has always gone on in our big cities. That’s what the Republicans are so pissed about. They thought they had the election rigged in their favor by suppressing the vote, but when states actually took the time to count every legal vote, Trump lost. He lost in Arizona, not because of the so-called Deep State, but because he didn’t have as many votes as Biden. That’s simple arithmetic, Trumpsters. Get over it!
