Sorry to touch your nerve Congressman Grothman Not. :problem:

A Wisconsin Republican congressman is angry that young people are voting for Democrats, arguing that they are merely doing so to be fashionable.

According to Madison.com, Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI) reacted to his party losing the majority in the House of Representatives by chiding young voters.

The only candidate in this race who's a disgrace is you Brian

Georgia’s Kemp calls Stacey Abrams a ‘disgrace to democracy’ for refusal to concede while votes are still being counted

Republican Brian Kemp has accused his opponent in the Georgia gubernatorial race, Democrat Stacey Abrams, of being a “disgrace to democracy” because she has refused to concede to him despite the fact that votes are still being counted that could force a recount.

According to Fox 5, Kemp’s campaign issued a statement late Saturday claiming it is “mathematically impossible” for Abrams to force the runoff.

Voter fraud!!!!

:problem:

Bay County allowed some hurricane victims to vote by fax or email. That’s not allowed. - Miami Herald

Quote:
TALLAHASSEE
As counties recount ballots in three statewide races and lawyers battle over the complex vote tallying in court, the top elections official in heavily Republican Bay County said he allowed some displaced voters to cast ballots by email or fax after Hurricane Michael hit the Panhandle, even though there is no provision for it in state law.

Bay County Supervisor of Elections Mark Andersen said Monday that 11 ballots were accepted by email and 147 ballots were domestically faxed in, though state statute does not allow emailed ballots and faxing in ballots is only permitted for military and voters overseas.

But Andersen defended his decision to accept those ballots by email and fax vigorously, noting the mass devastation that rocked the coastal county one month ago.

“You did not go through what we went through,” he said, describing areas that were shut off by law enforcement and people barred from returning to their homes. “If some are unhappy we did so well up here, I don’t know what to tell them. We sure had an opportunity to not do well, I can tell you that much.”

Andersen said that all of those ballots were verified by signature and that voters were required to sign an oath. “If I can validate it with a signature, the ballot is there, how is that different than a ballot that comes in through the post office?”

“When devastation happens, leaders rise to the top and make decisions,” he added. “I will not change my mind on this, not for these voters.”

...

Scott won roughly 74 percent of the vote in Bay County. The Panhandle is a reliable source of Republican votes.

As of the census[9] of 2000, there were 148,217 people, 59,597 households, and 40,466 families residing in the county. The population density was 194 people per square mile (75/km²). There were 78,435 housing units at an average density of 103 per square mile (40/km²). The racial makeup of the county was 84.17% White, 10.64% Black or African American, 0.78% Native American, 1.73% Asian, 0.08% Pacific Islander, 0.66% from other races, and 1.94% from two or more races. 2.42% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race.

Why is no one talking about the uncounted, suppressed votes in Florida? - Guardian, opinion

Quote:
But how does a democracy count the votes that were deliberately silenced in the face of widespread voter suppression?

This question has arisen repeatedly and the official answer, regardless of whether the disfranchisement was blatant or subtle, has been at best disappointing and, more often, debilitating.

In 1946, black veterans were returning from fighting Nazis and fascists and were determined to experience for themselves the democracy that they had waged war to secure for Europeans and Asians. Coming home to the United States, they wanted to vote. Mississippian and rabid white supremacist Theodore Bilbo, who was running for re-election to the US Senate, however, had other ideas. He urged “every red-blooded white man to … use the tar and feathers and don’t forget the matches” to ensure “that no nigger votes”.

Duly incited, the violence rained down on blacks as Bilbo won the all-important primary in a one-party state. A group of African Americans then petitioned the US Senate to unseat Bilbo because, during the election, armed white vigilantes had threatened to kill blacks trying to vote, officials had refused to register African Americans, and other forms of intimidation had clearly discouraged “enough blacks from voting to affect the outcome of the primary”, where only 200,000 votes were probably cast. This was particularly important because in a state with 350,000 voting age-eligible African Americans, only 5,000 were registered and barely half of them were able to vote.

Yet, even when directly confronted with virulent, obvious disfranchisement, the US Senate stalled its way into a stalemate. That august body could not come to a consensus that an election was illegitimate, stolen even, because a candidate and state laws had deliberately blocked American citizens from voting. Bilbo maintained his seat although he eventually ended up on paid medical leave until he died of mouth cancer.

And while 1946 might sound like ancient American history – at least pre-civil rights movement – there still is no real process to reckon with the electoral consequences and results of systematic efforts to keep black voters from the polls.

GOP Candidate Who Lost House Race Seeks To Impound Absentee Ballots

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico Republican who lost her bid for a U.S. House seat is seeking to impound absentee ballots in a key county that decided the race for the Democrat, according to court documents filed late Tuesday.

In court documents filed in the 3rd Judicial District Court in southern New Mexico, Yvette Herrell asked a Dona Ana County judge to impound the absentee ballots so her campaign could inspect them.

Stephani Walsh is a former Republican judge of the Texas District Court 45 in Texas. Walsh was defeated in the general election on November 6, 2018.

SA judge denies Gina Ortiz Jones' request to extend deadline for provisional voters

Judge Stephani Walsh, with the 45th Civil District Court, has denied Democratic challenger Gina Ortiz Jones' request to extend Tuesday's 5 p.m. provisional ballots deadline by 48 hours.

The extension would have allowed voters additional time to cure their provisional ballots.

Utah Republican behind in tight race sues to halt vote count - MSN

Quote:
SALT LAKE CITY — Republican U.S. Rep. Mia Love sued Wednesday to halt vote counting in the Utah race where she is trailing her Democratic challenger by a razor-thin margin, saying her campaign must be allowed to challenge mail-in ballot verification.

In a contest where "every single vote is crucial," the Love campaign claimed poll watchers have seen a few cases where ballots were approved even if voter signatures did not appear to match those on file in Democratic-leaning Salt Lake County.

Democratic challenger Ben McAdams shot back that the lawsuit "smacks of desperation," saying in a statement that elections officials, not candidates, decide what votes should count.

Love's campaign is "not accusing anyone of anything," but they believe a few instances deserve more scrutiny, campaign attorney Robert Harrington said in a statement. Voting is done primarily by mail in Utah.

County Clerk Sherrie Swenson, a Democrat, didn't return messages seeking comment. Results her office released Wednesday night sliced into McAdam's lead, putting Love less than half a percentage point, or 900 votes, behind him. Her campaign manager Dave Hansen cheered the news, saying she is on a "path to victory."

A judge is set to hear arguments on Thursday.

...

President Donald Trump called out Love by name in a news conference last week where he bashed some fellow Republicans, saying she and others lost because they didn't fully embrace him. His comments came despite the outcome of the vote being in doubt.


Being one of the 7 Black Republicans anywhere, ever, I'm surprised Ms. Love hasn't played the race card. Give her time. She will.

Abrams, Kemp both claim victory after federal judge's split decision in Georgia

Both Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp are celebrating victory in the Georgia governor's race after a split decision by a federal judge on Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge Steve Jones ordered that the secretary of state's office not certify results until absentee ballots on which the voter’s date of birth is missing or incorrect are counted, siding with Abrams's campaign.

Great!

Democrats To Investigate Voter Suppression In Georgia Governor Race And Other 2018 Midterms

Stacey Abrams, who has refused to concede her gubernatorial race in Georgia against the state’s Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, has had little recourse to address her concerns that Kemp used his role as Georgia’s chief election official to aid his campaign by making it harder for black people to vote. President Donald Trump’s Justice Department has demonstrated little to no interest in investigating or upholding voting and civil rights laws. Republicans in Congress have shown no interest in standing up for voting rights. And Trump and congressional Republicans spent the past two years attempting to justify laws that make it harder to vote by investigating baseless claims of widespread voter fraud.

But now that Democrats won control of the House of Representatives, that’s all about to change. Power will shift from a nearly all-white political party that refuses to support a reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act to a multiracial political party that announced its first act of 2019 will be to pass legislation greatly expanding voting rights. Key Democrats are giving signs that they will investigate voter suppression in the 2018 elections.

Re-Authorization of the Voter Rights Act will of course be one first priorites of the Democratic Party in 2020. RePuBliKlans will vote to kill it.
