The Donald Trump campaign was asked by a Pennsylvania federal court judge to show evidence of their claim that voting by mail is a system prone to fraud. According to a new The Intercept report, the Trump campaign has failed to provide the evidence.
“The campaign is suing Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and each of the state’s county election boards to prevent election administrators from providing secure drop boxes for mail-in ballot returns,” writes The Intercept’s Richard Salame. “These drop boxes allow voters to return their mail-in ballots by hand, without sending them through the postal system and risking delays.”
As Salame points out, Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future and the Sierra Club filed a motion last week calling on the Trump campaign to provide evidence of voter fraud claims, saying that the campaign’s lawsuit was “replete with salacious allegations and dire warnings” about Pennsylvania’s elections and that they “must either be compelled to provide discovery concerning their fraud-based allegations or be precluded from pursuing these claims going forward.”
