I just heard on Newsmax in some race, I am not sure where, 160,000 Trump votes were thrown out, but the down ticket votes were kept. I cannot find anything else on it. I have not done an exhaustive literature search since I only heard that 5 minutes ago. Just wondering if there was any word of this from other sources.
It's Newsmax. I would take that with a massive grain of salt.

It was Seckalo (sp?) Trump's attorney who said it. I have followed politics since the early 80's, politicians have always been less than truthful, ok, they lie. But this separate reality thing is scary. Just making up stories and millions of Americans believe it like the gospel. Scary times.

The letter urged a "full, transparent audit" in Wayne county, citing "numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural irregularities" made by a losing Republican candidate for senate.
I like how they are pretending this is about a Senate candidate who lost and not a result of their palm greasing trip to DC.

This is where we are...

Chang asked Blackburn whether she had been in contact with Biden to congratulate him, as president-elect, on his victory.

"I have not spoken with the president-elect," Blackburn said. "We did have the vice president come to the floor, the vice president-elect come to the floor this week to cast a vote. I was presiding at the time. Didn't get to speak with her."
...
Later Friday night, a spokesperson for Blackburn said the comment was a mistake and that Blackburn had "been very clear" on her position about the election outcome.

"She simply misspoke — it's nothing more," said Abigail Sigler, a campaign spokesperson for Blackburn. Blackburn's Senate staff did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Sigler emailed to clarify after this story published.

Did I hear correctly on CNN that Republicans in Pennsylvania are suing saying that the Republican-led legislature passed an unconstitutional law and that every mail-in ballot needs to be invalidated?

It's funny because these very same people will, once again, become devout deficit hawks and staunch supporters for law and order.

I hope the Pensylvania voters takes notes about these people and makes sure that they will never be elected to any public office again. And that their opponents - be it republicans, independents or democrats never let the voters forget that they were willing to deny their constituents the right to have their votes counted, in order to please a sore loser in the White House

This has gone beyond being sad.

The article says the letter was written by "The Republican National Committee and the Michigan Republican Party " - not the legislators who went to DC recently. Am I correct on that?

Too late.
I would think the doctrine of laches would apply. There is no way any court is going to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters who relied on law that went unchallenged months or years before the election. Even applying normal scrutiny.

Yeah, basically challenges to the process itself (as opposed to how the process is executed) have to be made before the election. I’m not sure if laches is the applicable concept (it could be) or something more specific to election law - but same idea.
