SCOTUS Rejects Suit From QAnon MD Gov Candidate

The Hill reports:

The Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to take up former Maryland gubernatorial candidate Dan Cox’s (R) challenge to the timing of officials’ tabulation of mail-in ballots in his election.

Cox, who lost to Gov. Wes Moore (D), sought to reverse lower court rulings that allowed election officials to count mail-in ballots weeks before Election Day.

His challenge referenced a sweeping legal theory advanced by Republican state lawmakers in a separate election case currently before the justices that could hand state legislatures broad new powers over how federal elections are conducted.

Cox, a QAnon nutbag and lawyer for the anti-LGBTQ hate group Alliance Defending Freedom, last appeared here when he publicly accepted a gift from a uniformed member of the Proud Boys. Cox organized buses to the Capitol insurrection, tweeting that day that “Mike Pence is a traitor.” He lost the election to now-Maryland Gov. Wes Moore by 32 points.
