This is interesting when a dismissed lawsuit is hailed by the party who dismissed it as a “major victory.” I mean, that’s good. I got a high mark in civil procedure in law school and I can tell you, this is brand new information to me. You can see the below tweet from Ronna McDaniel, who doesn’t seem to be using the family name “Romney” these days. Mitt is probably glad of that, considering how utterly false the information below is.
This is a lie. The plan was only to send to ACTIVE registered voters. RNC dismisses the case with nothing. https://t.co/ZsDnc2c40k

And here’s another Democratic attorney chiming in.
Um, I don’t know how to break this to you…but you actually dismissed your lawsuit. 🙄

I love the smell of dismissals in the morning. They smell like major victory. If you’re a Republican and you’re lying through your teeth to the low information/no information people, I guess that’s an accurate statement. Wow. I can’t wait to hear from the legal minds on this site. Or anybody in their right mind. Both groups of people will be properly appalled.
How did the Republican party sink to this level? Even Richard Nixon is in the next world, shaking his head. The only thing that occurs to me, is that there’s so little good news in GOPland these days, with mighty Trumpy striking out every day, that they’ve got to make some up.
