Absentee ballot envelopes in North Carolina fit into "a pattern of fraud"
Quote:
The Congressional race in North Carolina's 9th district, where Republican Mark Harris is leading Democrat Dan McCready by just 905 votes, has drawn national attention because of highly unusual patterns in mail-in absentee ballots.

In Bladen County, for example, only 19% of mail-in absentee ballots were requested by Republicans, but Harris won 61% of the mail-in absentee ballot vote. In every other county, including Republican strongholds like Union County, McCready won the mail-in absentee vote.

Quote:
Typically, there would be a wide variety of witnesses for absentee ballots. A random assortment of voters chose to vote by mail-in absentee and then have family, friends or co-workers serve as witnesses. The ballots obtained by Popular Information, however, show that a small group of people served as witnesses for these Bladen County ballots. Some of the witnesses signed more than 40 absentee envelopes.

Several of the witnesses are related to Leslie McCrae Dowless, the man at the center of the controversy who has previously been convicted of felony fraud. In 2016, McCrae Dowless admitted to running an operation where he paid people for each absentee ballot they were able to collect. The operation allegedly involved paying "people to obtain absentee ballots, fill them out, and cast their votes on someone else's behalf," according to an exposé on This American Life.

My bro broke another big story last week. It was discovered that Medicare had overpaid UnityPoint Health by $4.4 million. UnityPoint was threatening to leave the Iowa Medicare program. So Reynolds let them keep $2.4 million of the $4.4 million, and their mind was changed and they decided to stay in the program. And they hid this of course until after the election.

The claims of voter fraud in the GA governor's election were actually... a reflection of Kemp not doing his job? Apparently so.

The only thing more boring than CSPAN on teevee is CSPAN on an internet stream of the teevee broadcast.

I know the senate won't pass this, but this is outstanding.

IMO, this is going to take a massive grassroots effort to overturn.

Lots of focus on this clip from last night of Rashida Tlaib saying "we're going to impeach the motherf____"



Most of the criticism seems to be over the cursing, but some of it about impeachment being hasty. Though she also had an op-ed yesterday laying out the case and I think it's a pretty good summary.

https://www.freep.com/story/opinion/con ... 463127002/

Quote:
President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country. His conduct has created a constitutional crisis that we must confront now.

The Framers of the Constitution designed a remedy to address such a constitutional crisis: impeachment. Through the impeachment clause, they sought to ensure that we would have the power, through our elected representatives in Congress, to protect the country by removing a lawless president from the Oval Office.

We already have overwhelming evidence that the president has committed impeachable offenses, including, just to name a few: obstructing justice; violating the emoluments clause; abusing the pardon power; directing or seeking to direct law enforcement to prosecute political adversaries for improper purposes; advocating illegal violence and undermining equal protection of the laws; ordering the cruel and unconstitutional imprisonment of children and their families at the southern border; and conspiring to illegally influence the 2016 election through a series of hush money payments.

Whether the president was directly involved in a conspiracy with the Russian government to interfere with the 2016 election remains the subject of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. But we do not need to wait on the outcome of that criminal investigation before moving forward now with an inquiry in the U.S. House of Representatives on whether the president has committed impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors” against the state: abuse of power and abuse of the public trust.
