At first look, the letter from Michigan Republican Chair Laura Cox needs to be the best to easily wave away. Cox has completely nothing to do with tallying the votes, certifying the outcomes, or deciding on the electors. So on the floor, her demand that the state board of canvassers “adjourn for 14 days” to conduct an audit and tackle “credible experiences of procedural irregularities” that don’t exist ought to be shifting on to the closest round file. However it’s this effort the place McDaniel has additionally signed her title, making it clear that this—along with wining and dining Republican legislators—is an formally sanctioned a part of Trump’s plan to derail the method in a state the place he misplaced by 155,000 votes.

The second effort, with Rep. Kelly because the headliner, is an precise court filing. It claims that the growth of mail in ballots beneath a Pennsylvania legislation known as “Act 77” is unconstitutional, and as a treatment, asks that all mail in ballots within the state, excluding navy ballots, be thrown out. That might be roughly 2.5 million ballots discarded—about 1.6 million of them Democratic ballots. It additionally quantities to effectively over a 3rd of all ballots forged in Pennsylvania, which could put Kelly within the working for all-time disenfranchisement king. 

When itemizing members of Congress who’re the largest Trump lackeys, Kelly’s title doesn’t come up usually. However contemplating that Kelly in contrast the impeachment of Trump to the assault on Pearl Harbor, and manner again in 2017 instructed his constituents that Barack Obama was persevering with to run a “shadow authorities” that was undermining Trump … perhaps he ought to transfer up within the rankings. He definitely will after this stunt. Becoming a member of Kelly in his lawsuit are a group of failed candidates for state workplace in Pennsylvania. and a scattering of “common” voters who simply don’t need Black individuals to vote.

Kelly’s lawsuit doesn’t simply recommend that thousands and thousands of votes be discarded. In case there’s some drawback with figuring out how that might have an effect on the result, he has a prepared different that might stop the necessity for anybody to interrupt out a calculator. As a substitute he requested the decide to “direct that the Pennsylvania Basic Meeting select Pennsylvania’s electors.”

Whereas he’s at it, Kelly asks the courtroom to pay for his bills for attempting to throw out the votes of thousands and thousands of Pennsylvanians. As a result of why the hell not?
