Trump Campaign Sues Montana Over Mail-In Voting

Reuters reports:

Republican President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign sued the Democratic governor of Montana on Wednesday in an attempt to halt an expansion of mail-in voting in the run up to November’s election.

The lawsuit comes as Trump frequently alleges – without providing evidence – that voting by mail is riddled with fraud, and as a record number of Americans are expected to mail their ballots because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee allege in their lawsuit that Montana Democratic Governor Steve Bullock’s directive last month allowing counties to employ universal vote-by-mail because of COVID-19 was an unconstitutional “brazen power grab” not authorized by state law.
