Although the mainstream media called the state for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is nevertheless continuing its fight against alleged voter fraud within Nevada.
In that pursuit, the campaign announced on Tuesday that it had filed a new lawsuit arguing that a wide range of “irregularities” was evident in races across the state that could potentially overcome the president’s deficit, according to the Associated Press.
“After you account for the fraud and irregularities”
As of the filing of that lawsuit, Biden reportedly held a lead of roughly 33,500 votes. The Trump campaign, however, alleges that tens of thousands of votes were tainted and should be invalidated.
In that scenario, attorney Jesse Binnall argued that Trump would emerge as the rightful victor in Nevada’s presidential race.
“Donald Trump won the state of Nevada — after you account for the fraud and irregularities that occurred in the election,” said the Trump campaign lawyer in announcing the new lawsuit this week.
American Conservative Union President Matt Schlapp joined him for the news conference in Las Vegas, where he emphasized the importance of reinforcing “trust” among the public in the security of the nation’s elections system.
“In all of my years in politics, I have never seen the types of voter irregularities we have seen in Clark County,” Schlapp added.
“When the law and the facts are clearly adjudicated”
Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt also addressed the public, using the forum to list a few examples of the alleged fraud and irregularities that occurred in the recent election.
Among the concerns listed in the campaign’s complaint are allegations that voter signature verification machines were set below the minimum standards recommended by their manufacturer. Furthermore, the lawsuit claims that as many as 15,000 ineligible votes — including about 1,000 by non-residents — came in from out of state, as reported by the Nevada Independent.
The suit calls into question officials’ decision to include hundreds of provisional ballots as well as allegedly misleading information some voters received about how to submit such ballots.
“We’re quite confident in the fact that when the law and the facts are clearly adjudicated in this matter, that it will be very clear that once all the voting happened, once everything occurred, the results were unreliable because of the irregularities and the fraud,” added Binnall.
One day before the latest lawsuit was announced, Trump celebrated another GOP victory in the Clark County, tweeting: “Big victory moments ago in the State of Nevada. The all Democrat County Commissioner race, on same ballot as President, just thrown out because of large scale voter discrepancy. Clark County officials do not have confidence in their own election security. Major impact!”
