The Supreme Court on Monday turned away Republican challenges to the presidential elections results in Pennsylvania, refusing to take up a months-long dispute over extending the deadline in that state for receiving mail-in ballots.
Even the three justices who would have granted the case — Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Neil M. Gorsuch — acknowledged that the number of ballots received after Election Day would not have been enough to threaten President Biden’s victory margin over former president Donald Trump.
Justice Clarence Thomas dissented on SCOTUS’ decision to deny Donald Trump’s Pennsylvania challenge, stating “our fellow citizens deserve better.”

This Clarence Thomas dissent is unhinged even for Clarence Thomas. Standard-issue "just asking questions" voter fraud truthering, but laundered using legalese and published by an author with "Justice" in front of their name. https://t.co/7vI74ObIgm pic.twitter.com/JlkpzaDnMq
