The Donald Trump campaign filed a lawsuit Monday against election officials in Clark County, Nevada, which includes Las Vegas, CNN reported.
The Trump campaign is suing Joe P. Gloria, the Clark County registrar of voters, claiming that he kept polling locations open for “two hours beyond the designated closing time,” according to CNN.
Early voting surged in the Las Vegas, particularly in locations in Latino communities, like a Hispanic grocery store where voters waited in lines for hours, according to reports.
The complaint includes an account by a poll watcher named Ronald Ketcham who said he observed at around 5:00 p.m. at the Cardenas market site, the lead elections worker there tell the Democratic observer that the polling place would be open for an additional 2 hours after 8.00 p.m. The elections worker also told Ketcham that voters who showed up to other sites after 8:00 were being told to come to Cardenas, according to the complaint. Ketcham said he saw 150-200 voters, if not more jump in the Cardenas line after 8:00 p.m.
Sure. Yes. Completely convincing. I can’t wait to hear about the 5,000 Caddy-driving African-American women who showed up at the polls in Largo, Md. at midnight. Please give all you have left to Trump so he can pursue Justice!
Thanks to a number of people for the heads up and whoever coined the term scampaign.
Update: And thanks to twbb for this clip of Judge Gloria Sturman replying to Team Trump’s request to release the names of poll workers in Nevada.
