I was thinking that judges are hiding behind procedural walls like “standing” and “laches” to get rid of issues they don’t want to consider, like election fraud. I think they are afraid of rioters or being doxed etc. So a petitioner is made to deal with the judges reptilian brain and not the frontal lobe of the cerebrum. In such matters, the fight or flight mechanism overrides judicial consideration of the law and evidence every time. As to the procedural arguments, if a petition is filed before the election, there is no actual case or controversy, so no standing, if the case is filed after the election, laches is found to apply as there is too much delay. The reptilian brain does not a good lawyer make.
