This week, Trump campaign lawyer Lin Wood, who helped kicked off the outgoing president's volley of unsuccessful legal challenges to the election results and has aggravated Republicans with calls to boycott the Georgia Senate runoff, submitted a new election lawsuit apparently representing himself.
Legal experts on social media couldn't help but notice an incredibly unfortunate typo near the end of his filing. Instead of writing, "Under penalty of perjury," he wrote "I declare and verify under plenty of perjury" that the facts on election irregularities described in his filing are correct.
