I made the decision that I wouldn't attempt to track all the details of the ongoing election challenges. The fact is that the election laws in each state are unique to that state--and that's especially the case with regard to precisely those provisions that cover the types of voting most susceptible to fraud: absentee and mail in voting. It's impossible for me to keep up with the developments in a truly informed way. However, there have been some positive developments that offer hope for the Trump challenges. Note that not all of these challenges are being conducted by the Trump campaign organization. Some involve the local GOP and some involve private groups or individuals (like Sidney Powell).
Here's a brief rundown of some of the positive developments. I won't claim this is an inclusive list, but here goes.
We saw last night that the Thomas More Society, through its Amistad Project, filed an emergency motion with the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Their claim focuses on absentee ballots--but that includes a variety of types of fraud. Fraudulent Biden votes, Republican ballots not counted, etc. However, a notable aspect of this motion is that it draws attention to the use of a huge amount of money from Mark Zuckerberg that funded dodgy Dem GOTV efforts (as well, most likely, as efforts to suppress GOP voting). Again, the details will vary from one state to another. What's important is that the Thomas More people zero in on the fact that the Zuckerberg millions was "gifted" to county and municipal governments. That's illegal in virtually every state in this country. In addition it appears that the Thomas More people are working closely with Brad Maynard's project that is also focusing on absentee voting irregularities. The votes involved would easily flip Wisconsin to Trump, and Thomas More appears to have Wisconsin law--and its Supreme Court--on its side.
Late today the Thomas More Society filed a similar motion in Georgia. The focus once again is on Zuckerberg's millions flowing, illegally, to county and municipal governments. As in Wisconsin, the claim is that large numbers of Biden votes were fraudulently cast, and that "tens of thousands" of Trump votes were not counted. I haven't seen the full filing, but it looks generally similar to the Wisconsin motion and I assume that, once again, they're working closely with Brad Maynard. Here's a video of Phill Kline, explaining what's up with Zuckerberg. The optics of Phill Kline fronting for the Amistad Project isnt the best. Still, this looks promising.
This article includes a video of another dodgy aspect of the Georgia election, as presented by a private internet researcher. It all adds up.
We also saw that a Nevada judge is allowing an evidentiary hearing regarding GOP charges of fraud in Clark County (Las Vegas). That hearing will be on 12/3 and the local GOP will be conducting 15 depositions in the meantime. My understanding is that one of the big issues in Nevada has to do with double voting by California residents, but I'm sure there are other issues as well. It's a very positive develop.
Finally, the Big Enchilada: Pennsylvania.
A judge in the the Pittsburgh area has enjoined the certification of the election in Pennsylvania. This is a perfect illustration of what I was saying about how complicated matters are from state to state. This injunction was issued on state constitutional grounds. The very short version is that the state constitution conflicts with a state election law, and the constitution should take precedence. Again, the focus is on absentee ballots, and a favorable result would probably flip the election to Trump.
SWC has an excellent explanation of the ins and outs in Pennsylvania with regard to this issue. Sit down while you read this, because it may make your head spin:
As I detailed in this earlier story, several individuals — led by GOP House Member Mike Kelly — filed suit in Pennsylvania state court alleging that the “no excuse” Absentee voting procedures adopted by the Pennsylvania General Assembly violate Sec. 14 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution. That provision establishes four narrow categories of “electors” who are eligible to request and vote by absentee ballot. The Plaintiffs — including two individuals who lost election contests for the United States House of Representatives and Pennsylvania House of Representatives — claim that all votes cast by individuals who were not eligible to vote under the provisions of the Sec. 14 of the Constitution, are invalid and should be removed from vote totals in all races.
The “no excuse” absentee ballot option was passed as part of Act 77. But at the same time, the legislators passed an identical amendment to Sec. 14 of the State Constitution to alter the language of that Section regarding authorized Absentee voting. The problem is that constitutional amendments must be passed in two successive sessions of the Pennsylvania Assembly, published in newspapers of general circulation in each County of Pennsylvania, and then be adopted by a majority of voters in the next general election before the Amendments become effective. The proposed amendments to Sec. 14 have only been passed in one session of the Assembly, and have never been published or voted on by the public. Nevertheless, the state government put the provisions of Act 77 into immediate effect as if Sec. 14 had been amended.
In addition, the Pennsylvania legislature is holding hearings on election fraud and today heard some blockbuster testimony. If accepted, this too has the potential--based solely on one county if I understand this correctly--to flip the election to Trump. Get the details here:

The actual details of the testimony are even hinkier than that already sounds.
UPDATE: From Rudy's testimony in PA today. Weird how the uninspected votes seem to tally up pretty closely with that unexplained gap in mail-in ballots sent v. mail-in ballots returned.
"You could ask to see the ballots."— Heather Champion ™️ (@winningatmylife) November 25, 2020
You have two major gaps: you have 600K+ votes that were not inspected by anyone put in.
Then you have this gap between Mail in ballots that were sent out and the number that was counted: 1.8M sent
2.5M counted@RudyGiuliani #PAhearing pic.twitter.com/kcL4TYy9EE
Rudy's take was this:
You have two major gaps — you have the 672,770 votes that were not inspected by anyone secretly put into the ballot box and then you have this gap that I don’t understand between the mail-in ballots. You’ve sent out: 1.8 million and the number you counted: 2.5 million!
That’s totally impossible to explain other than what some of the other witnesses were suggesting that they were basically stuffing the ballot box. I believe what happened was that they never expected to be behind by 700,000 or 800,000 votes on election night. They expected to be behind by a couple hundred thousand — in Philadelphia to steal a couple hundred thousand votes, they do it every year, that’s not going to be tough. Now you have a real big problem so you had to create mail-in ballots, you had to stretch it out for a while.
That's a helluva lotta votes to just create, even in Philly. Thus the shutdown. Without PA, no path to 270 for Biden.
