Don’t Worry, IT Ain’t Over Yet As Trump Campaign Sues New Mexico!

Despite losing the state by 10 percentage points, the Trump campaign is suing the State of New Mexico for using drop boxed for their absentee ballots…just as the Electoral College was affirming Joe Biden as the President-elect. Go figure.

As the 538 electors who make up the Electoral College met on Monday in all 50 state capitals and the District of Columbia to cast their constitutionally mandated votes for president, Donald Trump expanded his failed legal effort to overturn the 2020 election based on fictitious claims of fraud. The Trump campaign filed a federal lawsuit in New Mexico, a state he lost by more than 10 percentage points, alleging that Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver violated state law by allowing voters to submit ballots using drop boxes at polling places in lieu of presenting them in-person to a judge.

“[I]t’s not over. We keep going and we’re going to continue to go forward. We have numerous local cases,” Trump told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade before his campaign filed its latest lawsuit. 

“This lawsuit appears to be yet another attempt by the outgoing Trump Administration to silence the voices of lawful voters throughout the country,” Alex Curtas, a spokesman for Toulouse Oliver, told the Las Cruces Sun News. “The state GOP acknowledged that drop boxes are legal under New Mexico law…

Trump lost the state by over 100,000 votes, and its five electoral votes would not get him much closer to reversing an election he lost by 74 electoral votes.

I imagine that this lawsuit will suffer the same fate as all of the others. And I don’t understand why no one else in the GOP isn’t tired of this by now.

  1. Not much to go figure over, same batch of conservation mindset “cool-aid” induced authoritarians that are obviously still incapable of intellectual, logical, factual or political reason.

    When are state legislators (press releases from the likes of Sanfelippo, Bernier, Macco, Dittrich or Murphy 12/14/20) going to be censured in the WI statehoue for essentially fanning the flames of outright sedition, again denouncing the validity of WI election processes.

    More to the point, where are their GOP colleagues who’ve not spoken out against this outright lying and false election fear mongering. Ask any of these “GOP election review team members,” to tell us whom among their select invited guests was providing sworn testimony.

    Election related, one could similarly ask the question, who is currently being their own worst enemy over “keeping their own guns.”

    For that matter, who is the biggest threat to the huge majority of sane and sensible gun owners being able to continue recreational shooting leagues or to not lose long established traditions of family hunting in WI, than the gun toting racist white nationalist cowards who’ve done things like storm and occupy the MI statehouse or threaten to do harm to elected officials or election workers.

    How much courage does it take to threaten unarmed law abiding civilians, civil servants hired to follow the law as it applies to election work or to intentionally threaten people taking care of your mom or dad or grandmother in a nursing home because you won’t wear a freaking mask?
