The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported the audit will examine such issues as how the state maintains its voter rolls and when it allows voters to get absentee ballots without showing IDs. To ensure that these and other protocols are effective, Elections Commission staff now participate in weekly «knowledge transfers» with state and federal law enforcement and intelligence services. Maryland HB 1248 modified its existing post-election audit process to also include an automated and manual audit conducted by the state board of elections. Gretchen Whitmer, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, the city of Detroit and others related to unfounded election fraud claims. The One America News reporter then asked if anyone would be held accountable if fraud was discovered. He said he was asked specifically to include evidence that would support the national security concerns that some senators had. Trump issued a statement lauding three GOP state lawmakers who visited Arizona this week, who support auditing the results in the Keystone State and applied pressure to two other GOP leaders in the state Senate to greenlight the operation. The attention on Arizona underscores the high expectations in Trump world that the audit — being conducted by a Florida-based company with no experience auditing elections, through what experts have repeatedly pointed out is a deeply flawed process — will finally produce evidence to support the former President’s lies.
There is a pervasive sense among current and former Republican officials that the president’s behaviour is irresponsible if not dangerous, but a divide has emerged between those influential Republicans willing to call him out publicly and those who aren’t. The tension touched on a key issue Republican leaders will have to address as they look to future elections: How do you mobilize voters to go to polls that they believe will not properly count their votes? Capitol to disrupt the count. The double win marked a final setback for Trump in his efforts to turn the election his way, including his urging protesters to «cheer on» those challenging the election, and only telling them to retreat after they broke windows in the Capitol and forced members of Congress to barricade in the chamber. The group of Republicans insisted their effort wasn’t an attempt to thwart Biden or overturn the election, but rather aimed to protect «election integrity.» Likewise, Hawley said he was not trying to overturn the election. They want the recount of the 2020 presidential election won by President Joe Biden halted unless they get guarantees that voter privacy and ballot secrecy is ensured. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it won’t expedite the hearing of a federal lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump voters against Gov.
But the Republican National Convention staff, which works with the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, is still finalizing plans and officials have yet to announce the formal lineup. Trump finally appeared late Sunday to deliver his first speech since he left office last month, a clear climax of the long weekend. «There is a very thin line between political criticism and inciting violence,» Netanyahu said Sunday. «I condemn all incitement to violence,» he added. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected accusations of incitement and said the newly formed Israeli coalition that is poised to unseat him was the result of «the greatest election fraud» in the history of democracy. «We can’t say that when criticism comes from the right, it’s incitement to violence, and when it comes from the left, that it’s a justified use of freedom of expression,» he told a meeting of Likud party members.
«We are witnessing the greatest election fraud in the history of the country, in my opinion in the history of any democracy,» Netanyahu said in comments to legislators from his right-wing Likud party. And yet, somehow, there are vast accusations of voter fraud and outright cheating. Election conspiracies are becoming a financial liability, too: Voting companies have launched a series of billion-dollar lawsuits in recent weeks against conservative media figures and outlets. Aiding Obama’s win was a devious suppression of the conservative vote. Netanyahu’s supporters have been working hard to win defections from Yamina deputies uncomfortable working with Palestinian citizens of Israel and Jewish leftists. Some have held demonstrations outside the homes of Yamina legislators. We have much more coming! He offered a solution, one that united him with other panelists — and much of his party. The alliance comprises three right-wing, two centrist and two left-wing parties as well as a party of Palestinian citizens of Israel. In power for 12 consecutive years, Netanyahu faces being toppled by a motley coalition of eight parties united only by their shared hostility towards him. Netanyahu claimed he himself was the target of an «even more serious» campaign and again called the coalition that seeks to replace him a «dangerous left-wing government».
