The Trump campaign on Sunday called on a judge in Pennsylvania to block the state from certifying Democratic nominee Joe Biden as the winner of the election, saying that there is evidence voters were allowed to correct problems with their ballots.
“Unless Bush v. Gore was much ado about nothing, presidential candidates of course have an interest in having lawful votes for them counted and unlawful votes for their opponent invalidated,” the filing said. “That’s particularly true in Pennsylvania, one of a few swing states where recounts or other litigation is ongoing and where the vote margin is close.”
Campaign lawyer Linda Kerns made the filing in a federal court. It named about six counties in the Keystone State, alleging that those county officials illegally allowed voters to use deficient ballots to cast replacement absentee mail-in ballots ahead of the Nov. 3 election or provisional ballots cast on Election Day to “cure” errors.
Bloomberg News first reported on the suit Sunday.
