Eh, not all legal cases brought forward are about fraud. There can be multiple cases targeting different perceived errors in the system. The case quoted is not about fraud, it's about illegal election rule changes.
In a recent Pennsylvania federal case, Giuliani alleged “widespread, nationwide voter fraud” in his opening remarks. But under questioning from the judge, he retreated. “This is not a fraud case,” Giuliani later admitted. In the same case, Trump lawyer Linda Kearns said explicitly that she is “not proceeding” on allegations of fraud
that same article talks about two other cases in PA about whether the Trump lawyers were alleging voter fraud or not, and both lawyers said they did not have evidence nor were perusing voter fraud allegations. So this is what is going on in the courts right now. The rhetoric we're seeing from the public and social media is not the same rhetoric the lawyers are using in the courts. Their strategy is seemingly to buy enough time to stop any counting of the votes in the hopes--the hopes--that they're able to uncover some widespread voter fraud. Most of the affidavits are about the possibility of fraud because both republican and democratic poll watchers could not get close enough, though Trump won that case and reduced the distance from 20 feet to 6 feet.
