BREAKING: President Trump Files Election Lawsuit in New Mexico

December 14, 2020 | 17:10

SANTA FE — President Trump has filed an election lawsuit challenging the results in New Mexico. The suit calls into question the use of “drop boxes” for absentee voting, as well as other changes made by New Mexico’s Secretary of State, Maggie Toulouse Oliver, which loosened the controls on casting ballots.

“…the State of New Mexico has not only tainted the integrity of the their own citizens’ vote, but their action have also debased the votes of the citizens in New Mexico that remain loyal to the Constitution.”

Attorneys for the President argue these “non-legislative”changes made by the secretary violate the U.S. Constitution. The President’s legal team asserts that only the state legislature could make the changes that New Mexico made to its electoral process this year. “…executive branch government officials cannot subvert these constitutional requirements, no matter their stated intent,” the lawsuit reads.
