Court Kicks Out Georgia Runoff Election Challenge ‘As Moot’

 Well, the Republicans, powered by Donald Trump’s never-ceasing furnace of hatred, never give up trying do they? Earlier, the number of frivolous lawsuits reached 59, so this one would take the count up to a nice round 60. Trump also has another trick up those expense shirt sleeves.

On January 6, POTUS invited the White supremacist group the Proud Boys and the rest of the motley crew of hate groups to a Washington DC celebration, but they do not get to sleep over in Lincoln’s bedroom. Now, why would Donald call them out?

We know that Trump has been trying to force Vice President Mike Pence to stand up before Congress and declare the vote a win for the temporary president. That also happens on January 6. Maybe, the president does not have much faith in Pence following through on that Constitution jawbreaker. Maybe, the VP already told him no.

Or maybe Trump will urge his hate groups into a less nonviolent coup.

In the Georgia runoff election challenge, the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit. The purpose of this last suit was to challenge poll watchers’ access. It also challenged the use of ballot drop boxes to collect ballots prior to the January 5 runoff election, according to The Democrazy Docket:
