The Trump campaign tried to sue a Nevada county Monday after some polling places stayed open two hours later than planned on Friday during early voting hours. But a judge was not having it.
The thing is, the polling places didn’t do anything wrong. There’s a law in Nevada that if people get in line before the polls close, they should be allowed to cast their vote. That rule caused some polling places to stay open until the last person in line voted at 10 p.m., even though the official closing time was 7 p.m. The county says nobody voted who wasn't already in line.

Of course, one of the four polling places Trump’s campaign was concerned about was in a heavily Hispanic neighborhood—and people there were voting Democrat. No wonder the campaign wasn't happy that more people there got a chance to vote.
According to Patch, Trump's lawyers seemed to want the names of the people who worked at the polls, but the judge would not allow that.
“I am not going to expose people doing their civic duty to help people vote ... to public attention, ridicule, and harassment," Judge Gloria Sturman said at a hearing, according to NBC. "I'm not going to do it.”
Judge Sturman is a nasty woman and we are here for it.
