Police Investigate Voter Intimidation Over Armed Men 'Hired By Trump Campaign' At Florida Polling Station

Police are investigating possible voter intimidation in the battleground state of Florida after two men reportedly dressed as private security officers and claiming to be working for the Trump campaign set up a tent outside a polling station.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office launched the probe after the men—at least one of whom was armed—were reported to be stationed outside an early voting location in St Petersburg.


The pair, who had apparently erected a tent outside the 150 feet no soliciting zone, told police they worked for a private security company.

According to the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Julie Marcus, the pair also claimed they worked for the Trump campaign.

"These persons claimed or said that they were hired by the Trump campaign, again I'm not going to speculate," Marcus told ABC Action News. "This was a licensed security company and they were licensed security officers."

The men left the area due to poor weather conditions but said they would return on Thursday.

Marcus said: "I and the sheriff take voter intimidation very seriously. Any type of voter intimidation will not be tolerated.

"We're going to ensure that our voters feel s

wow a ill-legitimate president declares himself the winner...

needless to say trump made the post office not even do as court ordered and made sure ballots were not postmarked or delivered by states laws because trump did miserable in pre election date voting.

The U.S. Postal Service blew a court-ordered deadline Tuesday to sweep mail-processing facilities in more than a dozen states for missing election ballots that could number in the hundreds of thousands.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan in Washington ordered the sweep Tuesday morning after the Postal Service said its delivery performance had dropped over the past five days and could not say whether more than 300,000 ballots received in its facilities had been delivered.


The sweep was to happen in 12 postal districts, including in battleground states Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.

Sullivan gave the agency until 3:30 p.m. to finish the task.

The Postal Service said in its update to Sullivan at 4:30 p.m. that it was unable to conduct the sweep because it would have “significantly” disrupted its Election Day activities. Instead, the agency said, it would continue its preplanned daily review process in its 220 facilities nationwide that process ballots and would try to deliver any remaining ballots.

In a response to the Postal Service later on Tuesday, Sullivan wrote that because postal inspectors were scheduled to be onsite at processing facilities from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and work to resolve issues as quickly as possible, he would let the process continue. However, he admonished that federal officials should be prepared to "discuss the apparent lack of compliance" at a hearing at noon Wednesday.

Bush-Appointed Judge Savages GOP Case Against Pa. Mail-in Ballots: Election Code Is Not Meant to Disenfranchise Voters


Quote:
Some two hours into a hearing that could affect ballot-counting in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania, a federal judge on Wednesday morning told attorneys for the Republican challengers that they had not explained the crux of their Election Day lawsuit.

a man standing in front of a computer© Provided by Law & Crime
“I don’t understand how the integrity of the election was affected,” U.S. District Judge Timothy Savage, a George W. Bush appointee, remarked. “That’s what I’m looking for.”


That pronouncement spells trouble for failed political candidate Kathy Barnette, whom the Associated Press reported lost in a landslide to the Democrat in her congressional race for Pennsylvania’s District 4, serving Montgomery County. Barnette trailed by the winner, Madeleine Dean, by double-digits when the race was called. Three-quarters of all ballots were counted when today’s hearing began.

But Barnette’s legal battles at the Eastern District of Pennsylvania resumed at 9 a.m. Eastern Time in Judge Savage’s court, as her attorney Thomas Breth volleyed one pointed question after another from the bench.

Before Election Day, Montgomery County gave voters who submitted mail-in or absentee ballots that appear to be defective a chance to cure the error, including by adding a security envelope if one is missing. The Republican challengers claim that is unconstitutional, and Judge Savage pressed their counsel on what would happen if he were one of those voters

“What happens to my vote?” Savage asked.

“It’s like any vote that’s improperly cast,” Breth replied. “It’s potentially disqualified.”

For the county’s lawyer Michele Hangley, the Republicans’ position sounded suspiciously like setting a “trap” to deprive people of their right to vote.

“The election code, it’s not meant to be a trap” in order to disenfranchise voters, Hangley noted.

Savage replied that the purpose of Pennsylvania’s election code is to enfranchise voters.

“That is correct,” Hangley agreed.

An attorney for the Democratic National Committee, which intervened in the lawsuit, argued that the GOP challengers gave up their strategy by waiting until Nov. 3 to file, arguing that the timing revealed the litigation to be an attempt to disenfranchise rather than an effort to vindicate a legal right.

Lee Soltysiak, the chief operating officer for Montgomery County, testified that both parties knew about their practice of letting voters correct potential defects in mail-in ballots before Election Day.

Judge Savage gave the challenges opportunity for additional briefing, before adjourning today’s hearing without a ruling from the bench

About the Nevada GOP's 'criminal referral'


Quote:

While Republicans in Nevada have yet to file the lawsuit they promised earlier Thursday, the Nevada Republican Party did tweet the following:

“Our lawyers just sent a criminal referral to AG Barr regarding at least 3,062 instances of voter fraud. We expect that number to grow substantially. Thousands of individuals have been identified who appear to have violated the law by casting ballots after they moved from NV.”

A couple of points:

First, It is not necessarily illegal for someone who lives out of state to vote in Nevada. Many states allow people who move way to continue to vote in their home states, provided they intend to return.

Examples might include someone who moves to take a short-term job, or attend school, or care for a relative, or for military service. They change their address to continue receiving mail, and maybe they even sell their home. But if they intend to return, they can still vote in their home state — as long as they don’t also vote in the place where they’re currently living.

Second, don’t be dazzled by the phrase “criminal referral.” It just means they sent a letter. Anyone can say they think a crime has been committed and call it a criminal referral.

And finally, this appears to be based simply on comparing the list of general election voters to change of address records. However, to be “voter fraud,” which is a crime, voters would have to know they were not eligible to vote but did so anyway. In other words, there has to be an intent to commit a crime.

wtf right wingers making long lines with hate tactics to vote and are trying to make it a crime to give people in 8 hour long lines water.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/unraveling-americas-two-major-parties-223520550.html


In Georgia, for example, a bill moving through the Legislature would, among other things, wipe out a day of Sunday voting frequently used by Black congregations, drastically reduce the number of drop boxes available for voters to deposit ballots and impose criminal penalties on groups that give food or water to people standing in line to vote.

People in Georgia, especially in largely Black communities, have "had to wait in extraordinarily long lines to vote, putting in an entire shift, eight hours, standing on their feet," said Nsé Ufot, chief executive of the New Georgia Project. A law that would "criminally prosecute volunteers who are providing water and snacks," she said, "is evil — evil and racist."

Republicans Who Voted To Overturn Election Say Congress Should Stay Out Of Elections


Quote:
Igor Bobic and Paul Blumenthal
Thu, March 4, 2021, 4:31 PM

A stunning 147 Republicans in Congress voted to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election based on lies about widespread voter fraud ― lies that, by lawmakers’ own admission, incited supporters of then-President Donald Trump to violently storm the U.S. Capitol in January.

The ultimately unsuccessful effort sought to toss out electoral votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania, potentially disenfranchising millions of Americans.

Now, many of those same Republican lawmakers are up in arms about a Democratic bill on voting and campaign finance reform that passed by a near party-line vote in the House of Representatives on Wednesday. The legislation, called the For The People Act, would effectively nullify the new wave of voter restrictions that Republicans are pushing at the state level. It faces exceedingly difficult odds of passage in the Senate.

Among other provisions, the bill mandates that states provide no-excuse absentee voting, at least 15 days of early voting and provisional ballots; requires that states establish automatic voter registration; and restores voting rights to people convicted of felonies upon release from prison in states that ban them from voting. In essence, it would maintain and expand voter accommodations that some states made during the coronavirus pandemic.

Republicans are objecting to the House bill on the grounds that it would force states to adopt procedures decreed by the federal government, arguing that states should be left free to decide how they run elections. This is a principle that many Republicans abandoned in January when they sought to overturn the 2020 presidential election because they opposed state laws governing that election, which were passed in some cases by GOP-controlled state legislatures.

Texas Republicans Targeting Voting Access Find Their Bull’s-Eye: Cities


Quote:
HOUSTON — Voting in the 2020 election presented Zoe Douglas with a difficult choice: As a therapist meeting with patients over Zoom late into the evening, she just wasn’t able to wrap up before polls closed during early voting.

a man wearing glasses and smiling at the camera: Zoe Douglas, a Houston resident, took advantage of 24-hour voting last fall.© Mark Felix for The New York Times Zoe Douglas, a Houston resident, took advantage of 24-hour voting last fall.
Then Harris County introduced 24-hour voting for a single day. At 11 p.m. on the Thursday before the election, Ms. Douglas joined fast-food workers, nurses, construction workers, night owls and other late-shift workers at NRG Arena, one of eight 24-hour voting sites in the county, where more than 10,000 people cast their ballots in a single night.


“I can distinctly remember people still in their uniforms — you could tell they just got off of work, or maybe they’re going to work; a very diverse mix,” said Ms. Douglas, 27, a Houston native.

Twenty-four-hour voting was one of a host of options Harris County introduced to help residents cast ballots, along with drive-through voting and proactively mailing out ballot applications. The new alternatives, tailored to a diverse work force struggling amid a pandemic in Texas’ largest county, helped increase turnout by nearly 10 percent compared with 2016; nearly 70 percent of registered voters cast ballots, and a task force found that there was no evidence of any fraud.

Yet Republicans are pushing measures through the State Legislature that would take aim at the very process that produced such a large turnout. Two omnibus bills, including one that the House is likely to take up in the coming week, are seeking to roll back virtually every expansion the county put in place for 2020.

The bills would make Texas one of the hardest states in the country to cast a ballot in. And they are a prime example of a Republican-led effort to roll back voting access in Democrat-rich cities and populous regions like Atlanta and Arizona’s Maricopa County, while having far less of an impact on voting in rural areas that tend to lean Republican.

Bills in several states are, in effect, creating a two-pronged approach to urban and rural areas that raises questions about the disparate treatment of cities and the large number of voters of color who live in them. That divide is helping to fuel opposition from corporations that are based in or have work forces in those places.

In Texas, Republicans have taken the rare tack of outlining restrictions that would apply only to counties with population of more than one million, targeting the booming and increasingly diverse metropolitan areas of Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas.

The Republican focus on diverse urban areas, voting activists say, evokes the state’s history of racially discriminatory voting laws — including poll taxes and “white primary” laws during the Jim Crow era — that essentially excluded Black voters from the electoral process.

Most of Harris County’s early voters were white, according to a study by the Texas Civil Rights Project, a nonprofit group. But the majority of those who used drive-through or 24-hour voting — the early voting methods the Republican bills would prohibit — were people of color, the group found.

“It’s clear they are trying to make it harder for people to vote who face everyday circumstances, especially things like poverty and other situations,” said Chris Hollins, a Democrat and the former interim clerk of Harris County, who oversaw and implemented many of the policies during the November election. “With 24-hour voting, there wasn’t even claims or a legal challenge during the election.”

The effort to further restrict voting in Texas is taking place against the backdrop of an increasingly tense showdown between legislators and Texas-based corporations, with Republicans in the House proposing financial retribution for companies that have spoken out.

American Airlines and Dell Technologies both voiced strong opposition to the bill, and AT&T issued a statement supporting “voting laws that make it easier for more Americans to vote,” though it did not specifically mention Texas.

American Airlines also dispatched Jack McCain, the son of former Senator John McCain, to lobby Republicans in Austin to roll back some of the more stringent restrictions.

Republicans in the State Legislature appear unbowed. In amendments filed to the state budget this week, House Republicans proposed that “an entity that publicly threatened any adverse reaction” related to “election integrity” would not be eligible for some state funds.

While those amendments did not end up in the final budget, a broader proposal threatening corporations that speak out on “any legislative or executive action” was added to the state’s “wishlist,” a compilation of longshot proposals. Even with unlikely odds of passing, simply placing the proposals on the record is seen by lobbyists and operatives in Austin as a thinly veiled warning to businesses to stay quiet on the voting bills.

The Perryman Group, an economic research and analysis firm based in Waco, said in a recent study that implementing controversial voting measures could lead to conferences or events being pulled from the state, and prompt businesses or workers to shun it. The group estimated that restrictive new laws would lead to a huge decrease in business activity in the state by 2025 and cost tens of thousands of jobs.

Among the restrictions in two omnibus bills in the Texas Legislature are a ban on 24-hour voting, a ban on drive-through voting and harsh criminal penalties for local election officials who provide assistance to voters. There are also new limits on voting machine distribution that could lead to a reduction in numbers of precincts and a ban on encouraging absentee voting.

The bills also include a measure that would make it much more difficult to remove a poll watcher for improper conduct. Partisan poll watchers, who are trained and authorized to observe the election on behalf of a candidate or party, have occasionally crossed the line into voter intimidation or other types of misbehavior; Harris County elections officials said they had received several complaints about Republican poll watchers last year.

Mr. Hollins, the former Harris County clerk, said Republicans recognized that “Black and brown and poor and young people’’ use the flexible voting options more than others. “They’re scared of that,” he said.

While Republican-controlled legislatures in Georgia and Arizona are passing new voting laws after Democratic victories in November, Texas is pushing new restrictions despite having backed former President Donald J. Trump by more than 600,000 votes. The effort reflects the dual realities confronting Republicans in the State Legislature: a base eager for changes to voting following Mr. Trump’s 2020 loss and a booming population that is growing more diverse.

Senator Bryan Hughes, a Republican from northeastern Texas who sponsored the State Senate bill, defended it as part of a long effort to strengthen “election security” in Texas.

“I realize there’s a big national debate now, and maybe we’re getting sucked into that, but this is not something new to Texas,” Mr. Hughes said in an interview. He said that lawmakers were seeking to roll back mail voting access because that process was more prone to fraud. He offered no proof, and numerous studies have shown that voter fraud in the United States is exceptionally rare.

Mr. Hughes said that the proposed ban on drive-through voting stemmed from the difficulty of getting access for partisan poll watchers at the locations and that 24-hour voting was problematic because it was difficult to find poll watchers for overnight shifts.

But many voters in Harris County, whose population of 4.7 million ranks third in the country and is bigger than 25 states’, see a different motive.

Kristie Osi-Shackelford, a costume designer from Houston who was working temporary jobs during the pandemic to help support her family, used 24-hour voting because it offered her the flexibility she needed as she juggled work and raising her three children. She said that it had taken her less than 10 minutes.

“I’m sure there are people who may not have gotten to vote in the last couple of elections, but they had the opportunity at night, and it’s kind of sad that the powers that be feel like that has to be taken away in order to, quote unquote, protect election integrity,” Ms. Osi-Shackelford said. “And I struggled to find words, because it’s so irritating, and I’m tired. I’m tired of hearing the same stuff and seeing the same stuff so blatantly over and over again for years.”

Brittany Hyman, 35, was eight months pregnant as Election Day was drawing near and was also raising a 4-year-old. Fearful of Covid-19 but also of the sheer logistics of navigating a line at the polls, Ms. Hyman voted at one of the drive-through locations.

“Being able to drive-through vote was a savior for me,” Ms. Hyman said. She added that because she had been pregnant, she probably wouldn’t have risked waiting in a long line to vote.

Harris County’s drive-through voting, which more than 127,000 voters took advantage of in the general election, drew immediate attention from state Republicans, who sued Mr. Hollins and the county in an attempt to ban the practice and discard any votes cast in the drive-through process. The Texas Supreme Court ruled against the Republicans in late October.

Other provisions in the G.O.P. bill, while not aimed as directly at Harris County, will most likely still have the biggest impact in the state’s biggest county. One proposal, which calls for a uniform number of voting machines to be deployed in each precinct, could hamper the ability to deploy extra machines in densely populated areas.

This month, in a further escalation of public pressure on legislators, Mayor Sylvester Turner of Houston, a Democrat, gathered more than a dozen speakers, including business executives, civil rights activists and former athletes, for a 90-minute news conference denouncing the bill.

“What is happening here in Texas is a warning shot to the rest of the country,” said Lina Hidalgo, the Harris County judge and a Democrat who has pushed for continued expansion of voting access in the county. “First Georgia, then Texas, then it’s more and more states, and soon enough we will have taken the largest step back since Jim Crow. And it’s on all of us to stop that.”

PA Republican Who Objected to Trump’s Election Loss Has Concluded That Fraud Was Committed… By Republicans

Rep. Seth Grove (R - York) , chairman of the PA House State Government Committee, was among the Republicans who wanted Congress to reject the results from his state during the 2020 election. He conducted multiple hearings to question the state’s results in favor of Joe Biden, took part in events that revolved around election conspiracy theories, and spearheaded a letter that claimed administrative actions and legal rulings “undermined the lawful certification of Pennsylvania’s delegation to the Electoral College.”

The Pennsylvania Capital-Star interviewed Grove to ask him about the 10 hearings he conducted on the 2020 vote, plus his sponsorship of legislation to eliminate absentee ballots while proposing voter ID. When reporter Stephen Caruso pressed Grove on his objections to the election results — asking him point-blank “Was there election fraud in 2020?”

Grove: Yes, there was. They have confirmed cases of election fraud.
Caruso: Who committed that fraud in Pennsylvania?
Grove: Right, Republicans. But it’s still election fraud. It doesn’t matter who [commits] it. We don’t want that fraud to occur. And to say there wasn’t any is a lie. Now, I will say there’s not like this mass amount of fraud, that’s going to shift hundreds of thousands of votes. But there was election fraud. We have had repeated, repeated election fraud in this commonwealth for decades.
Caruso: This is not the message that, particularly Republican politicians, were giving to their constituents-
Grove: Some. Not all.
Grove was further pressed on why he didn’t call out the lies that shrouded the 2020 election, and his response to that was “I can’t help people believe everything on the Internet.”

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/georgia-elections-official-slams-arizona-audit-as-neither-transparent-nor-likely-legal/ar-BB1g7dPw?ocid=msedgntp


A Georgia elections official slammed an audit of ballots cast during the 2020 elections in Maricopa County, Ariz., as "neither transparent, nor likely, legal."



Quote:


The audit of Maricopa County - the largest county in Arizona - comes as Republicans lawmakers in the state seek to back former President Trump's claims that the 2020 election was tainted by voter fraud.

Trump and his allies' claims have largely been disputed.

Elections officials at both the state and federal levels - including former Attorney General Bill Barr - have said that the 2020 election was not subject to widespread voter fraud.

Gabriel Sterling, a top elections official in Georgia, decried the audit as an attempt to "undermine confidence in elections."

"This 'audit' in Arizona is another step in undermining confidence in elections. This process is neither transparent nor, likely, legal," Sterling said on Twitter.

"Any 'findings' will be highly suspect now that chain of custody has been violated by partisan actors," he tweeted.


Sterling, a Republican, gained national attention last year for defending the validity of Georgia's elections against attacks from Trump and his GOP allies. He notably held a lengthy press conference during which he debunked multiple conspiracy theories pushed by the GOP about the election.

President Biden won the 2020 election in Georgia by close to 12,000 votes over Trump, becoming the first Democrat in over 20 years to win the state.

Following the election, Trump called Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger (R) and asked him to "find" over 11,000 votes, according to recordings of the exchange.

Sterling has since defended Georgia's S.B. 202 - the controversial voting legislation Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed into law in late March.

Democrats have panned the new law as a form of voter suppression.

Maricopa County, which swung for Biden, has turned in 2.1 million ballots and 400 tabulation machines to the state Senate following a subpoena.

Biden narrowly won Arizona by about 10,000 votes over Trump, making Biden the first Democrat to carry the state since 1996.

A lawsuit over the audit was reassigned to a new judge on Monday, less than a day before its hearing was set to begin.

Arizona secretary of state Katie Hobbs (D) told CNN on Monday that the effort "seems like a farce" and should end.

"A group of Republicans are continuing to try to appease their base who refuse to accept that ... Trump lost Arizona and that he's not the president anymore," Hobbs said.Georgia elections official slams Arizona audit as 'neither transparent nor, likely, legal'
