A judge in Pennsylvania dismisses a lawsuit by the Trump Campaign and the Republican National Committee. The suit was a poor attempt to block all absentee ballots in the state.

In Pennsylvania, a battleground state Republican Trump won by less than 1 percentage point in 2016 and considered essential to his re-election effort, his campaign had sought to ban the use of ballot drop boxes, arguing without foundation that the containers encourage fraud…

Trump has repeatedly and without evidence said that an increase in mail-in ballots would lead to a surge in fraud, although Americans have long voted by mail.

The Trump campaign also sought to change a state law that only allows poll watchers to monitor voting sites in their own counties. Trump’s team wanted any Pennsylvania resident to be able to monitor any polling location.

The judge rules that the Trump Campaign must at least provide some form of evidence that fraud is impending if absentee ballots are allowed.

The campaign’s argument was that evidence is unnecessary because they can win the case without it.
