Tired of the election stuff and just want to get on with life. That probably is not going to happen for the majority of Americans. Unfortunately we live in a country divided where neither side likes the others plans for the future of the nation.
I take no comfort in saying that we saw this coming. Back in June, for example, I told Lou Dobbs:
Our most recent research in September revealed that 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters!
I have to wonder how much worse it might have been had we not been busy in court. As you know, we are a national leader in seeking cleaner elections.
In 2018, the Supreme Court upheld a voter roll cleanup program that resulted from our settlement of a federal lawsuit with Ohio. California settled a lawsuit with us and last year began the process of removing up to 1.6 million inactive names from Los Angeles County’s rolls. Kentucky also began a cleanup of hundreds of thousands of old registrations last year after it entered into a consent decree to end another Judicial Watch lawsuit. In September this year, we sued Illinois for refusing to disclose voter roll data in violation of federal law.
We just analyzed data in the key state of Nevada where we found that in Clark County, there were about 154,000 “inactive” voters on the election rolls just before Election Day. Speaking of Election Day, federal law seems clear that the key results were supposed to be decided on … Election Day. Here is one of the relevant statues:
Indeed, on Tuesday, the president had the votes to win the presidency. These vote totals are being changed because of unprecedented, extraordinary, illicitly secretive, and inherently suspect counting AFTER Election Day that continue as I write. There will be court battles (which will almost certainly involve your Judicial Watch) but the presidency may ultimately come down to a fight in Congress over the counting of Electoral College electors from the states that are engaged in the slow-motion counting of votes. State legislatures in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia (and maybe Arizona) will have decisions to make – endorse and ratify what happened this week to President Trump’s vote totals or appoint a slate of electors to reelect the president. So, in addition to supporting Judicial Watch’s effort to secure the election, you may want to share your views on the election controversy with your elected representatives, both in your statehouse and in Congress.
