Election Chicanery

Election chicanery is occurring as we watch. The latest result is not particularly striking, the Supreme Court overturned a State Court and an Appellate Court and ruled that any ballot received after election day in Wisconsin can be ignored. Because the Post Office is actively trying to delay mail, the lower courts allowed ballots received up to 6 days later to count. The Supreme Court said no, the post office under a Trump executive IS allowed to change vote total by not delivering mail.

But what is scary as hell is Brett Kavanaugh's comments. Brett (Chief Bro of the Supremes) said that “States want to avoid the chaos and suspicions of impropriety that can ensue if thousands of absentee ballots flow in after Election Day and potentially flip the results of an election.”

But, as Justice Kagan thankfully pointed out, there are no results to flip until the votes have been counted. This comment is particular ominous as we head into an election under a pandemic. As my mother and Lynn have stated, we need to win big so they cannot steal it.
