On Wednesday, Donald Trump’s campaign attorneys signed documents agreeing that they did not present the evidence showing voter fraud in a key Pennsylvania county where they were challenging thousands of ballots.
“The lawsuit — filed last week by the campaign as well as the Republican National Committee and two GOP candidates for state office — sought to have the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas invalidate more than 2,200 ‘defective ballots’ that were counted following a review by the Board of Elections,” reported Jerry Lambe of Law&Crime. “According to Biden campaign attorney Marc Elias, the campaign agreed to sign a joint stipulation of facts — an instrument meant to provide the court with facts relevant to the case that are undisputed by either party in the action — which clearly disavows any claims that voting in the commonwealth’s fourth-largest county was affected by any fraudulent conduct.”
Bucks County contains the suburbs immediately north of Philadelphia. It was a key part of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in flipping the state; Hillary Clinton only won the county by 1 point, while Biden improved that margin to 4 points.
