round one of donald trump's efforts to make a case of illegal voting against clark county came up empty today..... a district judge denied a motion filed that would have made the names of poll workers at early voting sites in las vegas....public record. trumps representatives argued that access would shed light on the late ballots on the last day of early voting friday night... fox-5's vince sapienza was at the hearing.... and has more from what went on inside the courtroom... john..christine... the hearing lasted forty minutes..... and more than 30 was greg hardy... trumps representatives... pleading and arguing their case.... today was not about.. whether or not their was an illegal number of people allowed to vote at the polls.. instead it was about the preservation of possible evidence.... now state law requires clark county to keep all of their data and logs at the early voting polls for a minimum of 22 months.... but they are not required to hand over the identities of the poll workers... that is what donald trumps reps were asking the court to allow today....
5:05 pm
investigation to any illegal voting...they can contact those who were working to find out what happened... judge gloria sturman explained she would not pass a motion that opens workers doing their civic duty.. to ridicule and harassment... "we're asking you to preserve evidence in case it's necessary, that's it, bottom line, if the secretary of state looks at this and says we don't even need that, we know something wrong happened here, then i don't need it either, because if she knows it's wrong, than it's wrong." "why would i order them to make available to you information of peop polls when it's not already a pubnlic requirement to do so people can be harrassed when they are just doing their civic duty." now during the hearing... clark county registrar joe gloria.. through his council expressed a willingness to give the names of the workers if there were to be an investigation... but...again...the judge refused to pass the motion... saying if gloria and clark county are willing to do that... that is their right... neither side commented after the hearing....
