Trump Campaign Reportedly Says It’s Suing To Stop The Counting Of Votes In Pennsylvania 

TSR Politics: As election workers continue to count ballots in Pennsylvania, a hotly contested state, Donald Trump’s campaign says it’s suing to stop Pennsylvania’s vote count over lack of “transparency” and seeking to intervene in a Supreme Court case, CBS Philly reports.

Some of Pennsylvania’s most heavily populated counties, including Philadelphia, were tabulating votes around the clock. Allegheny County, where Pittsburgh is located, said it would resume the count at 10 a.m. today. More than 900,000 mail ballots were left to be counted, according to the latest state data.

PA’s governor Tom Wolf pledged Wednesday that all votes are “going to be counted accurately and they’re going to be counted fully. … Every Pennsylvanian can have confidence in the outcome of this election.”

Hearings were scheduled today in two Election Day lawsuits filed by Republicans, both seeking to prevent voters whose mail-in ballots were disqualified for technical reasons from fixing the ballot or casting a new one. One of the cases is in a federal court in Philadelphia, while the other is in a statewide appellate court in Harrisburg.

Republicans filed a federal lawsuit accusing officials in suburban Philadelphia’s Montgomery County of illegally processing 49 mail-in ballots before Tuesday for the purpose of allowing voters to fix problems with their ballots.

But Kelly Cofrancisco, a county spokesperson, insisted the state’s highest court has not prohibited counties from allowing voters to fix their ballots.

And in the lawsuit filed Tuesday night in the appellate court, Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania and five other plaintiffs asked to block counties from allowing voters whose mail-in ballots were disqualified to be able to cast their vote by provisional ballot.

It hasn’t helped that Trump has tried to spread incorrect info about the fairness of the election, saying the only way Democrats could win Pennsylvania is to cheat.

Donnie’s team reportedly had plans to file a similar lawsuit in Michigan earlier Wednesday. We’ll keep you posted on this one.
