Military Wife Accused of Voter Fraud Speaks Out

Another Trumpian fraud claim bites the dust.

 Trump's Claim of Criminal Voting Fraud in Nevada Bites the Dust

"We are confident that there are thousands of people whose votes have been counted that have moved out of Clark County during the pandemic,” said Adam Laxalt, Nevada’s former Attorney General and Co-Chair of the Trump Re-Election campaign.

Laxalt said they have evidence – a list of more than three thousand voters who voted in the 2020 presidential election, but no longer Live in Nevada.

Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria acknowledged that they received the list. He says, however, that it’s not out of the ordinary for voters to not live in Nevada but still be eligible to vote.

"This is a military town,” said Gloria. “We have Nellis Air Force Base. We also have several students who travel out of state to go to school.” College students and active military are allowed to claim Nevada residency while out of town.

The allegations are upsetting to former Henderson resident Amy Rose, an attorney who still calls Nevada home.

"My husband and I have both been accused of fraud,” said Amy Rose. “We take our duties as citizens very seriously, and it’s just a shock to see that this accusation had been made without any basis in fact."

If you are in a state on orders for the military, families don’t have to change their residency. She says she and her husband's ability to vote in their home state is a state and federal process that families secure with the county registrar.

The list provided by the Trump campaign includes full nine-digit ZIP codes, each one only applying to a handful of homes on a single street. Rose says she and her husband cast absentee ballots and confirmed that her current and former ZIP codes align with two supposedly "fraudulent" votes on the list.

“The list has addresses that are literally on Air Force bases,” Rose said.

One might think team Trump would take a modicum of effort to weed out the truly ridiculous, but one would be wrong.

No claim is too ridiculous to submit.

Trump forwarded a video on Twitter showing someone taking a video of a state worker collecting ballots from a drop box after the winner had been called. These idiots that follow the idiot President dont realize that counting continues until all votes are counted even after a winner has been called. Their brain can't comprehend how this is possible because they are dumb. Trump is mentally raping his supporters who dont even realize it.

The facts and the math do not back a Trump path . The election is over and has been over. Karl Rove just wrote an op-ed on the WSJ saying just that. Only reason Republicans aren't admitting it is because they are afraid to tell king Leer the truth

I think we're starting to see the negative effects of people living in self-imposed media echo chambers. This impacts a wide array of people today, not just the Trump supporters featured in these stories. They find it way too hard to believe that anyone could have voted for Biden, even if voters didn't particularly like him and just wanted to see Trump lose.

When Trump supporters operate on the belief that everyone is like them because they no longer see contrary opinion. they automatically assume rampant fraud when their guy loses. Over on ZH I'd say a clear majority of people still think Trump will serve his second term and they sound utterly delusional. There is still 4D chess afoot, sealed indictments coming any day now, etc. It's the same claptrap we've been hearing for years.

Even though I didn't vote, I kind of wanted to see Trump lose just to force people back to reality a bit. I watched as the understandable enthusiasm of 2016 morphed into a personality cult. Turning politics into religion isn't good for US society, and given the sorry state of the red/blue teams it's hard to fathom why anyone would offer them anything approaching religious devotion. They clearly don't deserve it!

Can we just assume that Biden will win the recount, move on and talk about things that affect our portfolios? Mish, whatever you put up about the election now will not change one iota the result since it has already taken place so why do it? Biden's economic policies are much more important at least to me for example. Potential competition from vaccines produced by other drug manufacturers than Pfizer is important to me. Biden's policy toward Iran is important to me. As I said before, let the process run its course. In the meantime there are lots of interesting economic things to talk about and to analyse.

Maggie Haberman on Trump's strategy. Other people are reporting similar but this one is pretty good

Easy there so far Trumps claims have not cost the tax payers millions of dollars like claims by others just four years ago. And who can put a price on the division of our society their claims had not to mention waste of millions of dollars and time we could have addressing real issues but Trump only won because of Russia and of course Facebook! lol
Trumps claims if all false will cost the tax payer 0.00001% as much as the the others claims just a while ago and won't be as near a waste as others. What short memories we have!

Not surprising. Nevada is a popular state for claiming residency under these circumstances because it has no state income tax.

When is it time to charge Trump and his minions with treason? With the continued baseless and frivilous claims they are lending support to Russia, China and Iran.

$7 trillion deeper in debt after Trump pushed and went along with numerous socialist policies and redistribution of wealth schemes while purging and attacking some of the very best small government conservatives in Congress, and the #MAGA cult are so worried he is going to lose despite claiming to be against all these things just eight years ago. Happy tax slaves pushing crazy conspiracy theories to continue to be governed by the only Republican in my lifetime to give Dianne Feinstein an orgasm.

Looking back, Trump has played the Jesse Jackson victim card claiming fraud and cheating after every loss in the GOP primary starting with the Iowa Caucus in 2016.

Yes I do. I thought a little humor was needed. Everyone here is so glum.

Although pointless, as far as affecting the election outcome in PA, Trump's team did at least notch a win in court today. They were able to remove a small number of ballots that were already set aside before counting (as in, not counted in current totals) because voter ID/info was not provided until after Nov 09 to 'cure' these ballots.

The court appears to have concentrated on a very small slice of what (I assume) the Republicans will be arguing to eliminate in that they let stand the date that the PA Supreme Court allowed for ballots to be received (which was moved to 3 days after election day), but they did not allow for the traditional 6 days to 'cure' ballots to be tacked on to the end of that adjustment to receiving ballots because the PA Supreme Court also did not say anything about that. I believe that a challenge to the extra 3 days is to be submitted to the US Supreme Court.

All of the above, of course, is pointless to the actual election result because the number of ballots affected is too small to reverse the current difference between the candidates. But it is interesting and a sign that there may be at least a bit of method to the madness in the pursuit of remedies in courts.

Anecdotal.
There is no case to be made for the integrity of American elections.
There is no conceivable reason why there is not an audit trail that allows one to verify the inputs and to repeat the process to see if the outputs can be repeated. Just the fact that the software is not open source is so telling. Absolutely no attempt has been made to show that elections have integrity.
