Agreed. The relief sought was never going to be granted. The Trump team and the GOP slept through the pre-election measures the Democrats forced through legislation, litigation, and a massive covid PR campaign carried out by a sycophant press. There is statistical evidence of funny business, but the time to address that was before the election.right or wrong closeness matters because judges are just people. and the law is only part of a case. you know that coh. a perfect example is the hanging chads case. it was a clear issue that a judge could understand with defined voters. the issue was clear and the remedy was clear. in these bizarre cases they didn't pass the smell test - the pleadings were goofy and amorphous and the remedies were absurd - no judge is going to invalidate/disenfranchise the votes of thousands if not millions of people.
you have to give a judge a clear issue to resolve and you have to give him a practical remedy. w/o both forget it
