Election 2020: Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court Throws Out Trump Suit

President Donald Trump’s continuous attempt to invalidate the state’s mail-in ballots again hit gridlock on Saturday.

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit brought by Trump’s allies and Congressman Mike Kelly to invalidate 2.5 million mail-in ballots.

The court said the petitioners failed to file their facial constitutional challenge promptly.

Pennsylvania’s attorney general Josh Shapiro described it as “another win for democracy”, saying it was an attempt to throw out the 2.5 million mail-in ballots and attempt to halt certification of the election results.

Trump’s allies and Mike Kelly waived their opportunity to challenge the law before the election, The Independent reports.

A federal appellate court had rejected his emergency appeal before the President went to Supreme court.

This is yet another loss for Trump who had claimed that the 2020 Presidential election between him and the Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, was rigged in his opponent’s favour without providing an iota of proof.
