Kerns was meanwhile in court for the Trump campaign Friday in a state case in Philadelphia that involves a challenge to about 8,300 mail-in ballots in which voters made alleged technical mistakes.
While Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar submitted guidance just days before November 3 that reportedly allowed voters missing proof of identification to cure their mail-in ballots until November 12, the judge agreed with Trump Campaign and the Republican National Committee's argument that Boockvar did not have the ability to authorize a change in the identification deadline because state law did not permit it.
Those voters are typically provided with a ballot, but are required to follow up with their county election office to provide either number for their ballot to be counted.
The court order affects a subset of about 10,000 ballots that arrived within three days of polls closing, a period allowed by the state Supreme Court because of concerns over the pandemic and delays in the U.S. Postal Service. "Having confidence in our elections means knowing that votes are legally cast and that voters themselves are legally eligible to cast a ballot", Trump said. 40,000 provisional ballots cast have been counted or partially tallied, according to state officials. This case involves at least ten thousand votes and potentially thousands more.
Citing four people familiar with the matter, the Times reported Friday that Giuliani is now overseeing the lawsuits to throw out ballots and turn around Trump's election loss, as well as public relations for the cases.
This was in line with the Trump campaign's argument, which was that there was no basis in the state's law to extend the identification deadline, and that Boockvar did not have the power to unilaterally change it. Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt issued this ruling saying that those particular ballots could not be counted.
Legal giant Porter Wright Morris & Arthur filed the motion to withdraw Thursday, leaving local election lawyer Linda A. Kerns of Philadelphia as the campaign's only remaining attorney on the federal court case in Williamsport.
That three-day extension was strictly for voters whose ballots that had arrived within a three-day grace period after Election Day allowed by the state Supreme Court. They are not LEGAL votes.
