Trump Campaign Gets Legal Victories in Michigan and Pennsylvania:
The Michigan state legislature has agreed to hold a hearing about election irregularities in the state. In addition to this development, a federal appeals court has agreed to an expedited election review in Pennsylvania.
“We are grateful to Michigan House lawmakers for not rushing to certify inaccurate election results,” Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis told Just the News. “We are confident they will share the same concerns once they see the extent of the outright fraud and disregard for the law that happened in Michigan and across the nation. Every American should want to know the truth.”
Ellis also responded to the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Trump’s “motion for emergency expedited review is granted at the direction of the court.”
“We are grateful to the Third Circuit for accepting an expedited review,” Jenna Ellis said.
The news comes on the heels of federal judge Matthew W. Brann dismissing the Trump campaign’s lawsuit against Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar on Saturday. --->READ MORE HERE
Brian Kemp calls for audit of Georgia's absentee ballot signatures:
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp called on Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Friday to complete a sample audit of the signatures on the absentee ballots cast in the general election.
Kemp's recommendation came two days after the state completed a full hand recount and audit of the election results in the presidential election.
Raffensperger's office finished a weeklong hand recount of the more than 5 million votes cast in the Nov. 3 presidential election late Wednesday night. Election workers are required to review the signatures on absentee ballots before they are scanned to be counted.
When an absentee ballot request form is received via mail by county election offices, workers compare the signature on the request form to the voter's signature on file. The state's online portal for absentee ballot requests requires voters to use their driver's license number to confirm their identity, officials said. The ballot is returned in a discreet envelope that voters sign, agreeing to an oath.
Kemp said Raffensperger should order election workers to go back and compare the signatures on absentee ballot request forms to what was submitted with the ballot. Kemp said he has spoken to General Assembly leaders about proposing legislation that would require photo identification to be submitted with absentee ballots. --->READ MORE HERE
