The Third Circuit Court of Appeals agrees to expedite review of an election lawsuit that would prevent the state from certifying its election results and toss out nearly seven million votes.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann dismissed the lawsuit the day before, saying the case and lack of evidence was “like Frankenstein’s Monster… haphazardly stitched together.”

This court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence. In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state.

Update: On November 27, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit rejects Trump’s case.

“Free, fair elections are the lifeblood of our democracy. Charges of unfairness are serious. But calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here,” Judge Stephanos Bibas wrote in a 3-0 decision from the US Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit.
