Good luck getting any money from Trump--I'm sure he thinks it's the people's responsibility:


Two counties in Georgia have filed lawsuits seeking to recover legal fees from former President Donald Trump which he incurred as part of a failed campaign to prove widespread voter fraud in November's presidential election.
Cobb County and DeKalb County on Monday filed court motions seeking to recoup the costs of attorney's fees incurred in failed legal cases alleging voter fraud which Trump brought against them in December. Both motions seek to recover the costs from Trump as well as Georgia GOP chairman David Shafer.
The election supervisors of Cobb and DeKalb counties were among those named in a failed lawsuit filed in Fulton County Superior Court by the Trump campaign in December which sought to throw out the result of Georgia's presidential election, which President Joe Biden won by a relatively narrow margin.
The Trump campaign filed dozens of other lawsuits across the country seeking to overturn the election result which also failed.
Cobb County's motion said that Janine Eveler, the county's elections director, and the Cobb County Board of Elections spent over $10,000 defending Trump's baseless claims.
It said the claims "were found to be procedurally deficient, factually unsupported, or both," and said the fees represented "just a fraction" of the fees incurred by a total of fifteen counties who also faced lawsuits.
"Given the number of failed lawsuits filed by the former President and his campaign, [Trump and others] apparently believed that they could file their baseless and legally deficient actions with impunity, with no regard for the costs extracted from the taxpayers' coffers or the consequences to the democratic foundations of our country," Cobb County's motion stated.

DeKalb County's motion states that it had spent more than $6,000 dollars defending itself against "unsubstantiated and frivolous claims" of state law violations, voter fraud, absentee ballot processing, and other unproven allegations.

Is it possible that the courts will save the US from misinformation and lies ?

Trump collected hundreds of millions from donor to investigate voter fraud

He should pay for state investigations

Fuck 'em all.
GOP, the party of "fuck'em all".
...............................................................

I demur on the poster 'Crepitus' characterization of the whole GOP being the party of 'f*ck 'em all'.

Rather, those who use "F*ck 'em all" as their go-to responses in adult discourse is the Party of Inarticulateness, Under-Education, and Bad Parents.

I personally, wouldn't support such a Party.
In my humble opinion, they don't seem smart enough to govern anything.

Other than that, I'm cool with such folks.

It is illegal to sue in order to recover costs that come from election investigation.
But even more to the point, the claim there were any court costs involved over election investigation or court action, is an obvious lie.
Governments that run elections have legal staff who handle this at no additional cost at all.
There is no one who spend a cent more due to court cases over the election, except for Trump.
And an attempt to make challenge pay, is totally illegal and wrong.
You can't have rights if you start making them expensive.

I'm glad that these counties are going to hold trump's feet to the fire for wasting their time and money, and the courts' time as well. I hope that more jurisdictions will do the same. The idiots who represented trump never bothered to do any legal research before filing baseless complaints, and they seemed not to know the basic rules that are taught in the first year of law school.

The Southern Poverty Law Center figured out decades ago that the way to break the power of the KKK was to sue its leaders and break them financially.
