In yesterday’s podcast episode of Zoom Town I did a little bragging about my Saturday participation in a Zoom meeting that included Garland Favorito, an election integrity activist in Georgia exposing election problems if Fulton County.
From the second link:
When it comes to keeping Georgia’s election process honest, Garland Favorito is one of the toughest advocates and critics.
Favorito has been rattling the nerves of many Georgia political elites for 15 years while testing the mettle of the state’s election system.
The retired information technology professional is co-founder of VoterGA, a nonpartisan election integrity nonprofit with thousands of social media followers. Politically, he is independent.
I know it’s FORBIDDEN in some circles to engage in any speculation about 2020 election problems, but just pretending people can’t use the courts to challenge election results, or demanding private tech companies censor any content that provide comfort to INSURRECTIONISTS, isn’t yet possible for the budding authoritarians, so even in Missoula stuff like this can happen:
It’s been almost nine months since the 2020 election, but in Missoula County, a Republican-led group is still sparring with local election officials over alleged “discrepancies” in ballot counts – claims that county officials say are bunk.
“We have the (ballot) envelopes, we have the documentation; this error does not exist,” Missoula County Elections Administrator Bradley Seaman told MTN News.
The GOP-led group, calling itself the Missoula County Election Integrity Project, has made several claims of problems with mail-in ballots during the 2020 general election – including one suggesting that nearly 4,600 ballots, or 6 percent of the total votes cast, aren’t tied to registered voters.
While county election officials have rebutted these claims, the group has continued to make extensive requests for ballot records, insisting that questions about the vote count have not been fully answered.
“We simply want to know how many ballots were brought in, how many ballots were mailed out and how many ballots were maintained,” says state Rep. Brad Tschida, a Missoula Republican spearheading the effort. “And, what the chain of custody was for those ballots, so that we can say without a shadow of a doubt there was no issue with the election.”
Individuals and groups, if so inclined, should have the right to inspect ballots and examine the chain of custody of those ballots.
Once upon a time Democrats believed in checks and balances to test the democratic processes they advocate spreading across the globe. When those same Democracy super-spreaders doth protest too much about examining the results, it makes me wonder what do they have to hide?
