GOP Rep. Mike Kelly: Supreme Court Case ‘Alive and Well’ After Emergency Order Denied:
Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) stated that his legal challenge to the Supreme Court isn’t over despite being denied an emergency order earlier this week.
“All that happened is we were not granted temporary injunctive relief,” Kelly told Newsmax on Wednesday. “The case is still alive and well.”
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday denied Kelly’s request—which was also joined by congressional candidate Sean Parnell and other Republicans—after he sought to prevent Pennsylvania state officials from taking further action to certify the state’s election results.
“And we are looking, how do we get the court to take on the case for its merits of being constitutional or unconstitutional. That’s all we’re looking at,” Kelly said. “That’s a huge ask, by the way. But we are in the midst of a constitutional crisis right now in our country, and we have to get answers, and we have to get it from the highest court in the land.”
Kelly’s case argued that Pennsylvania’s Legislature acted in an unconstitutional manner by passing a law known as Act 77 last year to expand the usage of mail-in ballots. His lawyers said Pennsylvania lawmakers violated the state Constitution. --->READ MORE HERE
Wisconsin Supreme Court takes up Trump lawsuit seeking to disqualify hundreds of thousands of ballots:
The Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed to take up a Trump lawsuit that seeks to disqualify more than 200,000 ballots in the state, a case dismissed earlier by a circuit court judge.
The lawsuit attempts to invalidate up to 221,000 ballots in Milwaukee and Dane counties, Democratic bastions in the state. The state's Supreme Court initially declined to hear the case before it went through lower courts.
Oral arguments are reportedly scheduled in the state's highest court on Saturday.
A Trump campaign official told the Washington Examiner earlier on Friday that it planned to appeal the circuit court judge's decision. --->READ MORE HERE
