Despite the best efforts by her Fox & Friends weekend cohosts Will Cain and Pete Hegseth, Jedediah Bila threw cold water on the notion that their frivolous voter fraud cases were going anywhere after a Trump appointed judge practically laughed them out of court this week.
Will Cain read a tweet by Trump lawyer and national embarrassment Jenna Ellis, promising they're moving onto SCOTUS next, and hanging their hopes that Samuel Alito would actually take it up, Hegseth touted another lawsuit that was filed by Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly seeking to invalidate mail-in ballots cast in the presidential election or let the Republican-majority state legislature appoint the state's electors – claiming that Act 77 is unconstitutional – despite the fact that all of them voted for it.
A case that, as Fetterman and others noted, they'd better be careful what they wish for if they win:
After Hegseth nonchalantly pushed the notion that it would somehow be acceptable to just toss out millions of ballots and disenfranchise everyone who voted by mail in Pennsylvania, hoping that the mayhem it creates would also toss the appointment of the state's electors to the legislators as well, Bila reminded them both that things didn't exactly go very well for Trump's lawyers this week, and maybe it's not such a good idea to be attacking Trump appointed judges as the “activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania” as Ellis did on Twitter after losing the case.
So, I don't know how well that holds up. And it was quite blistering. I mean, I was reading through it, saying, you know, "Calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here and there is no clear evidence of massive absentee ballot fraud or forgery." They went on and on.
So I think that is a setback, especially when you look at the Supreme Court, and you look at how they may evaluate something like this. Obviously, you have to take into account something that was written this way. Obviously by, like I said, a Trump appointed judge.
So it remains to be seen what they will say about it. Obviously, we're going to keep you posted with what goes on respect to what goes on with that, but this was a blistering opinion, in my opinion.
