11/23/2020   Michigan board votes to certify election results despite GOP calls to delay, by Dave Boucher, Detroit Free Press

"This board must respect the authority entrusted to it, and follow the law as written. We must not try to exercise power we simply don't have," said Van Langevelde, a staff attorney and policy advisor for the state House Republican Caucus.

11/23/2020    Breaking: Michigan Board of State Canvassers on Monday certified statewide election results, setting Joe Biden on the path to receiving the state’s 16 electoral votes. It's a significant blow to Trump’s attempts to reverse his election loss with spurious claims of fraud.

11/23/2020   Michigan Secretary of State Benson pens oped to Michigan: The will of the people is clear — and facts will carry the day, by Jocelyn Benson, Detroit Free Press

For the last 22 months, Michigan’s Bureau of Elections has worked with local clerks and national experts to prepare for a statewide audit of November’s general election.

 

During my tenure as Michigan's Secretary of State, and even before I was sworn into office, I've spoken repeatedly about the importance of post-election audits. Such audits ensure Michiganders can trust the outcome of our elections as an accurate reflection of the will of the people.

 

For example, following the March 10 presidential primary earlier this year, my office conducted Michigan’s first statewide risk-limiting audit pilot in partnership with 80 county clerks and hundreds of municipal clerks across Michigan. By state law, an audit can't be performed until the vote is certified.

 

The effort demonstrated the results of our elections are accurate and provided an extra layer of security as we prepared for November’s election.

 

A risk-limiting audit is the most statistically reliable method of evaluating the tabulation of ballots in an election. It involves drawing a large random sample of ballots in any given jurisdiction to confirm that, when ballots are visually inspected, the outcomes closely match the results reported by tabulation machines.

 

The pilot audit we conducted after the certification of Michigan’s March primary included a record-breaking 277 jurisdictions in all, more than had ever participated in such an audit anywhere in the country. It quickly and successfully demonstrated that Michigan’s ballot tabulation machines functioned properly and election results were accurate.

11/23/2020   Whitmer, courts could take action if Board of State Canvassers fails to certify, by Clara Hendrickson, Detroit Free Press

Under state law, the members of the Board of State Canvassers are required to certify election results if the Michigan's 83 counties have canvassed and certified theirs. The members of the Board of State Canvassers are executive officers and Michigan's Constitution gives the governor the power to remove officers "for gross neglect of duty."

11/22/2020   Trump Campaign Distances Itself From Conspiracy-Minded Trump Lawyer, by Matt Stieb, Intelligencer

In the latest sign of the mid-coup implosion on President Trump’s legal team, the campaign disavowed attorney Sidney Powell on Sunday night — just eight days after announcing she was one of the lawyers representing his efforts to overturn the election.

 

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” read a statement from Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

 

A few questions remain unanswered regarding Powell’s dismissal. If Republican leaders are critical of her comments, why have both the national GOP and campaign attorney Jenna Ellis endorsed her claims in the past week? As for conspiratorial thinking, it’s hard to boot her out of a legal effort which has provided no evidence for its claims — or ostracize her from a party that has openly embraced her fellow Q-supporters. And prior to her allegations against Kemp and Raffensperger, Powell’s election claims weren’t any more outlandish than her fellow “strike force” members. Giuliani, Powell, and Trump have all referenced the Dominion conspiracy suggesting a software firm connected to Hugo Chávez, the Chinese Communist Party, and George Soros stole hundreds of thousands of votes from the president.

WATCH: Lee Chatfield’s 7-15-2018 Arrest Video After Attempting to Bring a Loaded Unregistered Firearm Through Airport Security

In the video, you can hear the TSA agent inform Lee Chatfield that Emmet County Prosecutor James Linderman has a policy of not prosecuting people caught with unregistered firearms. They also tell Chatfield that he’s not going to jail, and assume the reason why the semi-automatic pistol isn’t in the registry is probably that the paperwork got lost. One interesting thing is the serial number on the gun raised some flags. Chatfield is then unhandcuffed so he doesn’t have to walk out in front of gawkers. The TSA agent jokes that Chatfield picked the right airport to bring a loaded unregistered firearm because if this had happened at any other airport TSA agents would have done their job and hauled him straight to jail.

11/21/2020   The Danger (and Ineptitude) of Trump’s Failed Coup, by Jonathan Chait, Intelligencer

Trump has attempted to retain power much as he wielded it throughout his term: with a comic ineptitude of his means that made it difficult to absorb the seriousness of his ends. If you had predicted four years ago that Trump would finish his term by proposing to cancel the election and reinstall himself in a second term, you’d have been brushed off as a hysteric. And yet here he is attempting to do just that and recruiting Republican allies to his mad scheme. The certainty of his failure does not make the damage caused by the coup effort disappear. It simply makes it harder to see clearly. The surreality of Mussolini continually slipping on banana peels is the defining paradox of this sordid era.

11/21/2020  The Founders didn’t prepare for a president who refuses to step down, historians say, by Gillian Brockell, The Washington Post

Those looking to the nation’s Founders, or the Constitution they framed, for answers to such a crisis will come up empty-handed. There is nothing in the Constitution about what to do if a president refuses to step down when his term expires, according to three historians and a constitutional law professor.

 

“We [historians] pride ourselves in saying, ‘Don’t worry, this has happened before,’ or, ‘Worry, this has happened before,’ ” said Jeffrey A. Engel, founding director of the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University. “Right now, if all your historians can say is, ‘We are in entirely uncharted waters,’ I don’t even know how the rest of that sentence ends.”

11/21/2020   Republican leaders ask Michigan election board to delay certification of results, in latest GOP effort to cast doubt on the vote, by Kayla Ruble, Tom Hamburger and David Fahrenthold, The Washington Post

The heads of the Republican National Committee and Michigan Republican Party issued a joint statement Saturday calling for Michigan’s state canvassing board to delay certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the state, marking the latest attempt by GOP leaders to intervene in the state’s electoral process.

 

In the letter — signed by RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who is from Michigan, and state GOP Chair Laura Cox — the officials ask the canvassing board to adjourn for 14 days and allow for a “full audit and investigation” before they convene to certify the state’s election results, a procedural step that is set to take place Monday afternoon.

 

“Not sure who needs to hear this, but under state law (MCL 168.31a) audits can only be conducted after the State Canvassers certify the election,” Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson wrote. “This is [because] election officials do not have legal access to the documents needed to complete audits until the certification.”

A reminder of continued GOP support for Trump’s efforts was apparent Saturday in Michigan, where the state’s Republican chairwoman, Laura Cox, issued a joint statement with Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel calling on the state to delay final certification of the vote and conduct a “full audit and investigation.” This came a day after the state’s top GOP lawmakers met with Trump at the White House but declared afterward that they had “not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan.”

11/21/2020   In scathing Saturday evening opinion, federal judge dismisses Trump campaign lawsuit in Pennsylvania, by Jon Swaine, The Washington Post

U.S. District Judge Matthew W. Brann granted a request from Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar to dismiss the suit, which alleged that Republicans had been illegally disadvantaged because some counties allowed voters to fix errors on their mail ballots.

 

Giuliani personally took charge of the case and appeared at a hearing Tuesday in Williamsport, Pa., in an attempt to justify it. Five other attorneys who represented the president withdrew from the case.

 

Brann wrote that Trump’s campaign had used “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations” in its effort to throw out millions of votes.  He wrote that Trump’s attorneys had haphazardly stitched this allegation together “like Frankenstein’s Monster” in an attempt to avoid unfavorable legal precedent.

 

“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state,” Brann wrote.

The lawsuit is a challenge to Act 77, which was signed by Governor Tom Wolf last year and passed through a GOP-controlled legislature (the Associated Press reported that only two "no" votes were from Republican members). The legislation provided Pennsylvanians the option to vote by mail up to 50 days before an election without providing an excuse, as was previously required for voters using absentee ballots. It also eliminated straight-party ticket voting and moved voter registration dates closer to Election Day.

Trump’s roughly hourlong meeting with the Michigan legislators came days after he personally called two local canvassing board officials who had refused to certify the results in Wayne County, Michigan’s most populous county and one that overwhelmingly favored Biden. The two GOP officials eventually agreed to certify the results. But following Trump’s call, they said they had second thoughts.

11/20/2020   Trump’s wildest claims are going nowhere in court. Thank legal ethics, by Adam Winkler, The Washington Post

According to the American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct, a lawyer is prohibited from making “a false statement of fact or law to a tribunal.” This rule is as straightforward as it sounds: Lawyers are obligated to be truthful in everything they say to a court. If they aren’t, they can lose their license to practice law.

 

In a hearing over Trump’s claim that his campaign was being excluded from observing the ballot count in Philadelphia, the judge — a conservative George W. Bush appointee — asked Trump’s lawyer if campaign observers were in fact present. “There’s a nonzero number of people in the room,” the lawyer responded vaguely. The judge, irritated, said he was “asking you as a member of the bar of this court” — judge-speak for “Be honest with me right now or I’ll have your bar card.” Because of the duty of candor to the court, Trump’s lawyer had to concede that campaign observers were indeed in the room.

Fact-checkers and others have blasted Powell’s nonsense, which blends into a bare-knuckled attempt by Trump to use his powers to overturn the Nov. 3 elections. On Thursday night, an unexpected voice joined the chorus: “Sidney Powell has been saying similar things for days,” said Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “On Sunday night, we texted her after watching one of her segments. What Powell was describing would amount to the single greatest crime in American history. Millions of votes stolen in a day. Democracy destroyed. The end of our centuries-old system of self-government, not a small thing.”

 

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” didn’t summarily dismiss Powell’s allegations; it wanted the evidence. Here’s what happened next: “We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened quietly the whole time at rapt attention. That’s a big story,” said Carlson. “But she never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her.”

Local officials are the unsung heroes of 2020.

 

As the late Trump fan Charlie Daniels noted, Georgians are accustomed to repulsing visitors offering Mephistophelian bargains. So when Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, to talk about the state’s signature-matching law, Raffensperger didn’t flinch.

 

In an interview with The Washington Post, Raffensperger, who is Georgia’s top elections official, said that Graham asked whether he could discard all mail ballots in counties with higher rates of signature mismatch. Raffensperger believed Graham, a close ally of President Donald Trump, wanted him to throw out legal ballots, which Raffensperger can’t do, but which stunned him anyway.

The complaint, initially filed by lawyer Thomas Bruetsch in October, calls for Palmer to step down from the Board of Canvassers for her involvement with the Grosse Pointe Board of Education election. Palmer — who is the founder of Taxpayers for Grosse Pointe Schools, a nonprofit group which advertised what appeared to be support of certain school board candidates — was accused of a conflict of interest in an election she oversees.

Todd Thacker, business manager of the local International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, tried mightily to persuade his members to “vote your paycheck” and elect Democrats who support organized labor. But he watched as many instead aligned themselves based on polarizing wedge issues — “God, guns and gays,” he derides it.

 

Tingley, at the county history museum, isn’t sure this place or any place can be a bellwether given the state of American politics.

 

“It is all politics of fear and passion. It’s not about voting for who’s right for you. It’s about avoiding the candidate that scares you the most,” she said.

 

“If it gets back to what’s best for the country, what’s best for individuals, what’s best for communities, I think that’s when the bellwether counties all across the country can hit it again.”

11/17/2020   A Disturbing Number of Republicans Support Trump’s Coup Attempt, by Jonathan Chait, New York Magazine

Last week, Axios reported an alarming but vaguely sourced story that “Republicans are talking more” about pressuring Republican state legislators to override the election results in their state and appoint pro-Trump representatives to the Electoral College. The next day, the New York Times identified the specific source of this terrifying idea: Donald Trump himself, who floated it in White House discussions.

 

This very maneuver was the most chilling scenario floated before the election. When Barton Gellman reported that Republican legislators in Pennsylvania had discussed it, the party indignantly denied having any such designs. And indeed, it would amount to little more than a coup carried out through a legal loophole. State legislatures in several states are gerrymandered so heavily that Republicans enjoy permanent, unassailable majorities; letting those voter-proof bodies abrogate a free election would plunge the political system headlong into authoritarianism.

The complaint accused Palmer of running a "dark-money PAC" to promote candidates for the Grosse Pointe Board of Education, an election she oversees, and called on her to step down from the board. The Wayne County Ethics Board will meet Wednesday to discuss the complaint against Palmer.

At the end of a tense meeting that featured election officials and public commenters blasting the Republicans for attempting to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters, the Republican members reversed course and the board unanimously voted to certify the results. The board also passed a resolution calling on the Michigan secretary of state to audit all the jurisdictions that showed discrepancies between absentee ballot counts and votes recorded in ballot books.

 

While this was happening, Hannity and McEnany were still celebrating what they thought was an election-altering game-changer.

Under Michigan law, the Board of State of Canvassers will now finish the job and I have every expectation they will certify the results when the job is done.

Trump’s old election conspiracy theory centered on mail balloting, which he deemed rife with fraud, unless it was being done by Republicans. His new theory is that the election was stolen because a left-wing software firm connected to Hugo Chavez and George Soros maliciously stole hundreds of thousands of votes in the middle of the night. Trump has been spreading the claim on Twitter the last several days:

Sam Bagenstos, a U-M law professor, said the lawsuit "picked the big Democratic jurisdictions and said, ‘Let’s invalidate all the votes of the people there.’" That would amount to throwing out more than 1.2 million votes and would hand a victory in Michigan to President Donald Trump by a margin of over 323,000 votes. "It’s outrageous and anti-democratic and it’s based on nothing in terms of the allegations," Bagenstos said.

11/14/2020   Trump Election Challenges Hamstrung by Hapless Witnesses, by Will Sommer, Daily Beast

The latest bruising response to Trump’s voter witnesses came Friday in a state court order from Michigan. The Trump campaign had asked Chief Judge Timothy M. Kenny to block the certification of Michigan’s votes, citing a number of witnesses who alleged seeing suspicious things happening with the ballot count, mostly at Detroit’s TCF Center.

 

But when Kenny actually saw the witness claims, he wasn’t impressed. In his Friday opinion, Kenny rejected the Trump campaign’s request, describing one witness affidavit as “rife with speculation and guess-work about sinister motives.”

 

“There is no evidentiary basis to attribute any evil activity by virtue of the city using a rental truck with out-of-state license plates,” Kenny wrote in response to one complaint.

 

Many of the witnesses cited by Trump lawyers in Maricopa County {Arizona] were only alleging after the fact that they may have seen something suspicious—even if they couldn’t exactly say what that thing was. Some, for example, complained about poll workers who pressed various buttons, but they were unable to prove that there was anything nefarious in the button-pressing.

 

The Maricopa Superior Court judge also removed various Trump campaign accusations, gathered via internet forum, from the record, questioning whether soliciting “evidence” on the internet could reliably bring in credible claims. Making matters worse, a Trump campaign lawyer eventually conceded that the campaign was not alleging fraud, instead pointing out “good faith errors.”

That council, along with a separate one representing state and local elections officials, put out a joint statement Thursday calling the 2020 election "the most secure in American history." It added, in boldface, that "there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."

 

According to one council member, the statement, which CISA released, was a direct response to the president's tweet Thursday morning citing a baseless claim that voting equipment provided by Dominion Voting Systems had "deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide" and switched hundreds of thousands of other Trump votes to Joe Biden.

11/13/2020   Former Trump Aide Challenging Vote Count Edited a Journal Praising Right-Wing Nationalism, by David Corn, Mother Jones

The publication, Braynard explained in a brief editor’s note, was named in honor of Otoya Yamaguchi. In 1960, Yamaguchi, a 17-year-old rightwing ultranationalist in Japan, brutally murdered Inejirō Asanuma, a member of parliament and the chairman of the Japan Socialist Party, at a televised election debate. Yamaguchi stabbed Asanuma with a short samurai sword. The image capturing the horrific moment became one of the most famous press photos of the 20th century. After he was arrested, Yamaguchi committed suicide and became a fallen hero of the Japanese far right.

 

A drawing of Yamaguchi graced the cover, as Braynard’s note described the murderer as a nationalist hero who heroically killed a communist. He pointed out that Yamaguchi shared a birthdate “with another great patriot who put bayonets through the enemies who threatened his nation, George Washington.”

11/13/2020   How A Record Number Of Republican Women Got Elected To Congress, by Danielle Kurtzleben, NPR

Fischbach is one of a record 35 Republican women who will serve in Congress next year, breaking the previous record of 30 and a sharp increase from the 13 GOP women elected to the House of Representatives in 2018.

 

This year's number could still grow as more races are called. The Republican Party is celebrating that as a win, just two years after Democrats had their own record-setting year electing women.

 

Altogether, according to the latest numbers, that means women will account for nearly 40% of Democrats on Capitol Hill, compared with less than 15% on the Republican side.

 

In that light, University of Virginia political science professor Jennifer Lawless explained why she thinks GOP women's success this year is important.

 

"​It's a big deal in that the Republicans have demonstrated that when they make some effort to recruit female candidates, they see an increase in women's representation," Lawless said. "But we haven't not known that. Since the 1980s, when women run for office, whether as Democrats or Republicans, we know that they're as likely as men to win elections."

 

"As, increasingly, college-educated women and men are leaving the Republican Party to becoming more rural, more non-college educated, male, [and] older, one way to appeal to that type of electorate is not anymore to be the Chamber of Commerce Republican woman, but to be the Second Amendment Republican woman," she said.

11/13/2020   Philadelphia's Suburbs Helped Deliver Crucial Pennsylvania For Biden, by Daniel Wood and Katie Meyer, NPR

One of Biden's newly captured voters is Jim Hagan, who lives in Chalfont in Bucks County. Hagan is retired now, but his old chemical industry job took him on a lot of international travel — and lately, he said, he has mourned what he sees as a loss of U.S. standing on the world stage.

 

Hagan voted for Trump four years ago. But this year he couldn't do it. In particular, he thought Trump created too much "vitriol" and "dropped the ball" on the pandemic.

 

"I was very dissatisfied with his performance," he said. "I find him to be a bit of an outrageous person, not presidential at all. ... He is an embarrassment when you talk to people overseas."

11/12/2020   The Last Time Trump Alleged Massive Fraud, by David A. Graham, The Atlantic

After the 2016 election, President Trump claimed that millions of votes had been illegally cast. The commission he established to investigate this came up empty-handed.

 

On Tuesday, The New York Times published an article in which reporters contacted top election officials in all 50 states to ask if they had any evidence of fraud. Not a single state reported back an issue (though in four cases, the paper had to rely on public statements or other officials). Only one state had no response: Texas, where Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick offered a $1 million reward for evidence of fraud. You don’t offer huge cash prizes if you already have evidence. Rewards like this also create a strong incentive to gin up false claims. Already, a Pennsylvania postal worker who alleged fraud has reportedly recanted; donors have collected nearly $140,000 for him.

11/12/2020   Trump Floats Improbable Survival Scenarios as He Ponders His Future, by Maggie Haberman, The New York Times

There is no grand strategy. President Trump is simply trying to survive from one news cycle to the next.

 

At a meeting on Wednesday at the White House, President Trump had something he wanted to discuss with his advisers, many of whom have told him his chances of succeeding at changing the results of the 2020 election are thin as a reed.

 

He then proceeded to press them on whether Republican legislatures could pick pro-Trump electors in a handful of key states and deliver him the electoral votes he needs to change the math and give him a second term, according to people briefed on the discussion.

In a scathing memo, progressives say centrists are playing into Republicans “divide-and-conquer racism.”

 

Rashida Tlaib isn’t apologizing for wanting to yank money away from bad police departments. She has no second thoughts about her embrace of the Black Lives Matter movement, or for wanting to aggressively fight climate change.

 

House Democrats lost seats instead of expanding their majority, underperforming expectations across the board. And moderates have pounced on liberals like Tlaib, the Michigan congresswoman, accusing them of handing conservatives a set of slogans and policies to scare voters.

11/4/2020   Trump has attacked democracy’s institutions, but never so blatantly as he did overnight, by Dan Balz, The Washington Post

For four years, President Trump has sought to undermine the institutions of a democratic society, but never so blatantly as in the early morning hours of Wednesday. His attempt to falsely claim victory and to subvert the election itself by calling for a halt to vote-counting represents the gravest of threats to the stability of the country.
