Yesterday we reported that Donald Trump was trying to stop the Pennsylvania vote count. Donnie’s team planned to sue in Pennsylvania for an alleged lack of “transparency” about the number of votes. The team attempted to intervene in a Supreme Court case.
Now a judge in Pennsylvania has approved the Trump campaign’s motion. According to Abc News, Trump’s campaign workers will be able to watch electoral workers in Philadelphia up close as they process the remaining postal ballot papers.
This removes the previous restrictions that kept staff out due to COVID-19. Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon agreed to the reversal in a decision of the lower court. Judge Christine concluded that “any candidate, observer or candidate representative may be present for the acquisition process … and observe all aspects of the acquisition process within 6 feet while following all COVID-19 protocols, including wearing masks and maintain social distancing. “
Donnie’s campaign workers are pleased with the quick decision, calling it a “massive win for every person who cast a legal vote in the state of Pennsylvania.”
