"He's Down to Steal This Thing" : Kavanaugh Parrots Trump Mail-In Ballot Lies

"He's Down to Steal This Thing": Kavanaugh Parrots Trump Mail-In Ballot Lies as Supreme Court Bars Extension of Wisconsin Deadline

"Kavanaugh is announcing to the world that if it will help Trump win he will join a decision to not count votes."

The U.S. Supreme Court late Monday delivered a victory for the Republican Party by barring the crucial battleground state of Wisconsin from extending its Election Day deadline for the arrival of absentee ballots amid the pandemic, with Justice Brett Kavanaugh issuing an ominous concurring opinion that echoes President Donald Trump's false narrative on mail-in voting.

The 5-3 decision along ideological linesówith the court's five conservatives in the majorityóblocked a request by Wisconsin Democrats and voting rights groups to revive a federal judge's ruling from last month that would have allowed mail-in ballots to be counted if postmarked by Election Day and received by November 9, a six-day extension of the current deadline of November 3 at 8:00 pm.

Wisconsin Republicans quickly appealed the order, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit blocked the ruling earlier this month.

In raising alarm about the potential consequences of the Supreme Court's decision to uphold Wisconsin's strict Election Day deadline as ongoing mail delays heighten fears that many ballots could arrive late, legal analysts pointed with particular dismay at the reasoning of Kavanaugh, characterizing the right-wing justice's 18-page opinion (pdf) as a blaring signal of his willingness to abet a possible attempt by Trump to stop the counting of valid absentee ballots.
