Marc Elias is a famous Democrat attorney for the infamous anti-Trump Democrat law-firm, Perkins and Coie, which helped purchase and obtain the fake-news Russian dossier against President Trump via Fusion GPS a few years ago.
Now, he claims that the voting machines for a Democrat in New York who lost their 2020 election had massive errors that need to be hand audited.
You don’t say, Marc…
“Marc Elias, the election lawyer who represented Democratic challenges to state rules throughout the 2020 election, alleged in a court filing this week that a close congressional race in upstate New York was marred by faulty voting machines.”
For months, Republicans have been maligned and destroyed in the media for making similar claims about the 2020 election despite mountains of evidence to support them. But, Elias seems to be taken seriously by everyone in the media as we haven’t heard him be maligned at all.
“In the congressional race for New York’s 22nd district, Republican Claudia Tenney currently leads incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi by a razor-thin margin of 125 votes. Tenney declared victory on Tuesday, though challenges continue.
In a legal filing Monday requesting a manual audit of the election, Elias, whose Perkins Coie law firm is representing Brindisi, argued that there were “substantial errors and irregularities in the conduct of the election.”
Citing alleged discrepancies between votes counted by hand and votes counted by ballot machines, Elias argued that the error rate, extrapolated across the entire district, could mean that thousands of votes were improperly counted by the machines.
He also complained about procedural faults with the conduct of the voting process, alleging failures to comply with New York State election law.”
Discrepencies? Irregularities? Procedural faults? Failure to comply with election law? MANUAL AUDITS?
You don’t say, Marc…
But there is still more. In one passage, Marc asserts the following:
“In this case, there is reason to believe that voting tabulation machines misread hundreds if not thousands of valid votes as undervotes, (supra at 4), and that these tabulation machine errors disproportionately affected Brindisi, (id.). In addition, Oswego County admitted in a sworn statement to this Court that its tabulation machines were not tested and calibrated in the days leading up to the November 3, 2020 General Election as required by state law and necessary to ensure that the counts generated by tabulation machines are accurate.”
So, he is saying that a voting machine that is not properly tested and calibrated according to law and common sense prior to an election is suspect and deserves skepticism and further investigation.
You don’t Say Marc…
And still, there is much more, as Marc is representing another Democrat loser in Iowa with similar complaints that will sound just as familiar to Trump supporters who have been shamed and silenced:
“Elias is also representing defeated Democrat Rita Hart in Iowa’s 1st congressional district, who lost by six votes to Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller Meeks (R-IA). He is asking the Democrat-controlled House to overturn the result of the election and seat Hart, despite certification of the vote by state election authorities, bypassing Iowa courts in the process.”
Prior to this, Elias was famous for his work with Democrats. This included the Russian disinformation of the Steele dossier used to malign President Trump from day 1 of his presidency. It was complete garbage, but many to this day still believe it was true:
“Elias was responsible for hiring opposition research firm Fusion GPS, on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, [which produced] the fraudulent “Russia dossier” on then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.”
We would gladly support Marc’s wish to legitimize factual criticisms of digital voting systems and conduct properly observed manual forensic audits of elections so long as we can have the same for the national presidential race in 2020 and beyond.
Yet, when conservatives raise such issues we are accused of lies, disinformation, and even incitement and terrorism by the media and the newly installed DHS.
The Orwellian double standards need to be stopped. The goal of these people is not really to have Democrats win, but to tear down all of America. Right now, they have the advantage. If Mr. Elias can get this audit, perhaps it can be used as precedent for honest people to get their forensic audit of the 2020 election, too.
If he gets his wish, do you think the precedent will trickle down to you?
