Quick rejection of the wretched Bruce Poliquin suit to overturn election results while bemoaning the qualifications of Maine voters to determine its outcome through ranked-choice voting – after its legitimacy was twice affirmed – can be found in the words of Chief Justice John Marshall when, in the 19th century, he wrote: “The people make the Constitution and the people can unmake it. It is the creature of their will, and lives only by their will.”
