That “evidence” seems to be more for public consumption than the courts.
AFAIK, none of the major lawsuits allege fraud*. It is worth nothing that Trump’s intervening brief to the Supreme Court said specifically that they had found no “dectectable fraud”, instead they alleged that the “unconstitutional” state election rules made the alleged fraud undetectable…OK…
The crux of the “constitutional” legal challenges seem to rest on a clause in the Constitution saying that state legislatures are responsible for selecting the manner by which the state appoints their electors.
The Trump lawyers have seized on this clause as meaning that state legislatures must specifically approve, via legislation, every detail of election procedure and every piece of guidance. A court yesterday, ruling on the merits of the case as requested by Trump, decided that interpretation was ridiculous and the clause simply means that state legislatures decide something to the effect of “We are going to choose our electors via popular vote.”
For example, the Wisconsin legislature created and sanctioned a bipartisan election board to interpret the election law and issue guidance, for example, clarifying absentee ballot procedures. The Trump campaign was trying to argue that the guidance issued by this board was unconstitutional because it was not directly voted on by their legislature.
Please note that this is not new, this type of election board has been common everywhere for forever. The specific arguments the Trump lawyers make go something like this.
Election officials contacted people who failed to put their full address on their absentee ballot and worked with them to fix their ballots instead of just throwing those ballots away. There is nothing in state law that empowers them to do that so those votes are “illegal” and should be thrown out.
To which the response is
There is nothing specific in state law regarding how absentee ballots with incomplete addresses should be handled, period - and there never has been. Our legislature covered all those situations by creating the election board to adjudicate those issues, which is what happened in this election.
The “allegations of fraud” that the Trump campaign bandies about were collected by their in-house “voter fraud” hotline as well as outside right wing organizations like Project Veritas. None of these allegations were reported to official sources, like election officials or police at the time they occurred.
The specific “fraud” allegations all looked like -
Biden got more votes in my county even though everyone I know voted for Trump and I find that suspicious.
At midnight, I saw several people bringing in large unmarked boxes into the voting center and I think they may have been illegal ballots ( it turned out it was takeout meal delivery)
I saw a Biden Harris bus pull up to the voting center and dozens of workers in Biden Harris shirts got out. They pulled boxes of empty ballots out of the bus, sat on the sidewalk and began filling them out for Biden, then they stuffed them in a big bag and took them into the voting center.
They had pages and pages of this stuff, and it was all stupid. Plus their witnesses behaved in a manner consistent with people who believed they would be immune from prosecution for perjury, probably because of public statements the President has made about protecting voter fraud whistleblowers.
And a quick word about Georgia and all the chatter about signature verification and mismatch, etc.
It used to be, in Georgia, if someone decided the signature on your ballot didn’t match your signature on file, they would just throw your ballot away. It’s turns out that this was happening disproportionately in certain neighborhoods and large numbers of ballots cast by young and minority voters were being discarded.
This practice was challenged and a settlement was reached allowing election officials to contact voters and give them an opportunity to confirm their identity rather than just wordlessly tossing their ballots. This settlement is the root of all the GA signature mismatch/voter fraud allegations.
- None of the MAJOR lawsuits explicitly alleged fraud, but there are dozens of crackpot lawsuits — well, they’re all crackpot but some are crazier than others- and some of those allege fraud, as well as other stuff, like the involvement of COVID infected tigers at the Bronx Zoo.
ETA- as a more direct response to the question, a Wisconsin court yesterday found Trump had standing and ruled on the merits, finding there were none.
