tRump campaign sues Montana Governor Steve Bullock to halt mail ballots

Calling Gov. Steve Bullockís August directive permitting counties to hold the Nov. 3 election via mail ballot illegal, President Donald Trumpís campaign and three other Republican groups sued Bullock on Wednesday seeking to overturn it.

The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Helena by Trumpís campaign, the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Montana Republican State Central Committee also names Montana Secretary of State Corey Stapleton, a Republican.

ďThe Governorís power grab under the cover of COVID-19 is particularly egregious. The Governor is running for U.S. Senate as a member of the Democratic Party and his race is one of the most competitive in the country. So he is using his current position to force a brand-new election system on Montanans that, according to his own party, will sway the election in his favor. This action cannot stand,Ē reads the suit.

Bullock responded, in a statement, that "this template lawsuit appears to be part of a pattern of lawsuits across the country by Republican party operatives to limit access to voting during the pandemic. Voting by mail in Montana is safe, secure, and was requested by a bipartisan coalition of Montana election officials seeking to reduce the risk of COVID-19 and keep Montanans safe and healthy. This is the same directive that the Republican President of the Senate and Republican Speaker of the House said was the right thing to do for the June primary. Today, we have many more active cases of COVID-19 than we did back in June.Ē

1. Heard that on the radio earlier this evening...

and Bullock is right. He's was doing a live zoom w/ one of my neighbors this evening, which I missed. The -45 team is suing any state that has mail in voting going on. The only reason there is any in person voting is because of the AG and the R gang. This is all to try and mess with one of the most well organized mail in voting systems in the country. They hate Montana now because we kept Sen. Tester and have Bullock in whatever seat he lands in.

One thing they didn't think about in the case of Montana is that Bullock was our AG before we elected him governor, he's hip to the stink of this shit.

5. Funny how they had no problem with Brian Kemp overseeing his own election in Ga.

when he was SOS running for governor.

Iím glad Bullock, along with sensible Montana Republicans, are standing up to this bullshit.
