Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

At least the judiciary are being sensible.

"A Texas judge has blocked an order allowing only one absentee vote drop-off point per county, claiming it would affect older and disabled voters."

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled that President Trump’s use of emergency powers to allocate millions of dollars in funding for the construction of a Southern border wall was illegal, the latest blow to the Trump administration’s effort to limit immigration.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

More court fails for GOP
Quote:
A federal judge in Pennsylvania has denied the Trump campaign and Republican Party's bid to make ballot dropboxes in Pennsylvania unconstitutional, in a resounding defeat for the campaign's challenges to voting policy in a key battleground state.

Judge Nicholas Ranjan of the Western District of Pennsylvania court also refused to throw out policies in Pennsylvania allowing signatures on mail-in ballots to not strictly match the voters' signature on file with the state and requiring poll workers to live in the county where they will work on Election Day.

He also rejected Republicans' fears of voter fraud, saying it's possible but not proven likely.

"While Plaintiffs may not need to prove actual voter fraud, they must at least prove that such fraud is 'certainly impending.' They haven't met that burden. At most, they have pieced together a sequence of uncertain assumptions," Ranjan wrote in the 138-page opinion.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Wouldn't it be great if all the voters in America rejected both candidates and voted for one of the other 1,214 people running for President.

Tom are two of your signatures absolutely identical? In every way? Even banks don’t insist on absolutely identical signatures. And, if you have two absolutely identical signatures, it is likely fraudulent because nobody can do that.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Just google Donald Trump signatures. There is even one hit that talks about the ‘evolution’ of Mr T’s signature.

Basically, yes, and very hard to forge.

Well of course, it stands to reason that your signatures would be perfectly identical and hard to forge. Not only should you have been a doctor, but also a leading politician, the world strongest man, the best mechanic, a linguist... basically if your posts are to believed there is nothing in this world that you are not amazing at!

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Behind a pay wall, but an interesting article on how stories about Kamala Harris morphed into a smear campaign, thanks to Facebook and racist, misogynist ideas.

Jaime Harrison shatters Senate fundraising record for South Carolina race
Harrison, the Democratic nominee against GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, raised $57 million in the third quarter of this year, blowing past Beto O'Rourke's 2018 record.
Public and private polling has shown the race to be extremely competitive.

Never thought Lindsey Graham was at risk but happy to see it.

These spending amounts are absolutely obscene. I imagine the contributions for this years campaign would be sufficient to fund universal health care, for the next decade or two.
