Winning. Trump Immune From Suit for Election Comments Made in Office. A poll worker in Delaware County, PA. Filed several lawsuits against former President Trump in reference to comments he made while President.

A Pennsylvania state court judge ruled that presidential immunity is broad enough to protect Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was rigged, even if he didn’t really believe the conspiracy.

Judge Michael Erdos in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Monday granted Trump immunity on two claims made in a 2021 lawsuit by voting-machine supervisor James Savage.

Savage claimed Trump damaged his reputation by falsely claiming he tampered with the 2020 election result, which resulted in death threats and two heart attacks.

Flipping a blue county to red tomorrow?

Views: 18

This would be something to see this happen.

Republicans could be on the cusp of capturing Florida’s Miami-Dade County in Tuesday’s midterm elections, flipping a county that hasn’t voted for a Republican governor in 20 years.

“The way the numbers are going, they could win it, absolutely,” Democratic State Senator Annette Taddeo told the New York Times Saturday.

“Republicans will feel emboldened and take it as a playbook and go around the country to communities in Nevada and in California and in Virginia and in Pennsylvania,” Christian Ulvert, a Democratic political consultant in Miami, told the New York Times. “It should be a massive warning sign to Democratic leaders across the country.”

Taddeo’s fears of a Republican victory in Miami-Dade come as early voting data shows that more registered Republicans have currently voted than registered Democrats, a potentially ominous sign for Democrats, who depend on racking up an early voting lead ahead of a wave of Republic votes on election day.

Republicans have begun to express optimism in their chances as well, with Lieutenant Governor Jeanette M. Núñez declaring during a rally last month that the GOP will win Miami-Dade County come Nov. 8.”
