They should not get a 3rd shot, Democrats Abroad, a group symbolizing overseas voters, claimed in a filing on Tuesday.

The submitting also pointed out the irony of the campaign in search of authorization to file a 3rd grievance to correct what it claims ended up a quantity of glitches when the match by itself demands that about 70,000 mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania be invalidated based on minor errors made by in any other case competent voters. Furthermore, the group reported, the marketing campaign has unsuccessful to present “one iota of proof” to again voter-fraud conspiracy theories Trump has been tweeting “for months.”
