”The order is the latest defeat President Trump’s allies have suffered in court in their attempts to muck up Joe Biden electoral victory.”

Trump’s now lost the Presidency more times than Harold Stassen.

(G-d, I’m old.)

“not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.”

I hate to say this, but that statement above is about as sexy as I’ve ever heard!

Lordy!

In other (unsurprising) news:

An investigation from the independent government watchdog that oversees the Department of Veterans Affairs concluded Thursday that a Republican member of Congress was involved in an orchestrated campaign by V.A. Secretary Robert Wilkie to disparage the reputation of a female veteran who alleged she was sexually assaulted at a V.A. facility.

The 68-page report from the V.A. Office of Inspector General (OIG) stated that three witnesses said Wilkie informed them that Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) gave him information about the female veteran that could erode her credibility. Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, served in the same unit as the female veteran, Andrea Goldstein.

In addition to suggesting a sitting member of Congress funneled potentially harmful and false information to the V.A. secretary amid an endeavor to discredit a sexual assault survivor’s allegation, the report detailed the V.A.'s improper handling of the incident.

V.A. Inspector General Michael Missal characterized the handling of Goldstein’s allegations by Wilkie, an appointee of President Donald Trump, and other senior agency officials as “troubling.”

After the Supreme Court rejected a similar Pennsylvania lawsuit seeking to disturb those results…

I was happy to hear that, because I believe that those results should forever remain turbed.
