In a desperate attempt to change the results of the 2020 Presidential election allies of President Trump have filed an emergency petition with the United States Supreme Court.
Instead, the appeal comes from Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Mike Kelly and other Trump allies, in a lawsuit they filed after the election to challenge a 2019 state law that allowed voters to cast mail-in ballots for any reason. Election experts have called the lawsuit, which seeks to throw out all mail-in ballots in the state in the 2020 election, ridiculous. They panned the chances that the Supreme Court would agree to hear it. Election law expert Rick Hasen, a professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law, wrote about it with this title: “Perhaps the Dumbest Argument Ever Made in Emergency Petition to the Supreme Court Appears in Pennsylvania Election Case.”
It seems that President Trump’s final hopes for this challenge are dependent on the conservative leaning Supreme Court to hand him this election. However, that is not going to happen. The court is not in a position to subvert the will of the people and even in the Bush v. Gore case from 2000 they explained that it was a one time unique opinion that held no precedent.
