SCOTUS Justice Alito Orders Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots That Arrived After Election Day Be Kept Separate; RNC deploys legal teams to 4 battleground states as votes are counted, and related stories

Supreme Court Justice Alito Orders Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots That Arrived After Election Day Be Kept Separate:
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has ordered county elections officials in Pennsylvania to keep separate mail-in ballots that arrived after Election Day. The state’s top elections official already had ordered those ballots be kept apart.
The order came Friday night in response to a plea from the state Republican Party as Democrat Joe Biden inched ahead of President Donald Trump in Pennsylvania in the presidential race.
Alito, acting on his own, said he was motivated in part by the Republicans’ assertion that they can’t be sure elections officials are complying with guidance issued by Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat.
The justice handles emergency appeals from Pennsylvania. He ordered a response from the state by Saturday afternoon and said he has referred the matter to the full court for further action. --->READ MORE HERE
RNC deploys legal teams to 4 battleground states as votes are counted:
The Republican National Committee announced that it has deployed legal teams to challenge election results in a multitude of battleground states.
The committee released the names of who will be heading up its legal teams in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania early Friday morning. To date, Arizona has been called for Joe Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press but not by any other outlet, and Michigan has been called for the former vice president unanimously, while Biden has inched ahead in Georgia.
“Democrats and their friends in the media spent four years talking about a Russia hoax on the grounds of election integrity. Now with just 48 hours after polls closed in an actual presidential election, they want to ignore clear irregularities, rush to call states as won, and end the election,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said. “We will not stand for that.” --->READ MORE HERE
