The Wisconsin power grab is part of a bigger Republican attack on democracy


The GOP’s turn against democracy may be a greater threat to the American experiment than President Trump.

Not content with election tampering, NC GOP tries to force bill through the state legislature that would require all county election boards to be chaired only by Republicans. It's okay though, Democrats can chair the boards in odd years. Wait

The new legislation would, in odd-numbered years, make the chair a board member who is from “the political party with the highest number of registered affiliates,” which are the Democrats in North Carolina. In even years, when statewide elections are held, the chair would be a board member who is from “political party with the second highest number of registered affiliates,” i.e. the GOP, under the legislation.

Governor Cooper sued over a similar provision and other legislation Republicans passed in 2016 seeking to undermine his authority to appoint members to the state elections board and other state panels. A panel of three state judges ruled in his favor in October when it came to those elections-related provisions. The annual rotation system that Republicans are are seeking to set up for county board chairs — as well as a similar system they sought in 2016 for the state elections board — has been declared unconstitutional. However, the state supreme court has not weighed in on the provision. It’s not clear if Republican lawmakers believe they’ll have a better chance under that court, which is a majority Democratic, of being allowed to implement the system for county boards.

North Carolina Rep. David Lewis ®, who is chairman of the House Committee on Rules and the top sponsor of the new legislation, did not respond to TPM’s inquiry.

“I get to count ballots that will be ignored,” Palm Beach County’s election supervisor said with a sigh.



Dozens of election workers are still sequestered in a South Florida warehouse recounting thousands of ballots, even though the state’s election was certified last month. The new tallies will never be considered

Why did Trumps super secret commission on voter fraud, headed by Mike Pence, not find this? And would not let Democrats look until a federal judge ordered them to do so. The same commission that was almost immediately shut down upon that ruling.

The man at the center of fraud probe in North Carolina may have been doing this for eight years - The Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/...fd8790ac2c

In 2010, a political operative named Leslie McCrae Dowless received a little over $7,100 to provide get-out-the-vote services for a candidate running in and around Bladen County, N.C. That candidate lost his race by about 6 points, though he won a majority of the mailed-in absentee votes.

That was thanks to Bladen County. Harold “Butch” Pope earned 52 percent of the mail-in absentee vote in his district. In Bladen, he won 81 percent of the absentee vote. Without the votes from Bladen, he would have lost the absentee vote by nearly 3-to-1.

Wisconsin Lawmakers Vote To Limit Powers Of New Democratic Governor
Quote:In the wee hours of the morning, the plan narrowly passed the state Senate, later the Assembly and now the bill moves to Gov. Scott Walker's desk for his signature.

Evers released a statement Wednesday morning saying Wisconsin values were "pushed aside so a handful of people could desperately usurp and cling to power while hidden away from the very people they represent."

BREAKING: Dan McCready tells me he is officially withdrawing his concession. In an exclusive interview, he tells me he thinks Mark Harris knew what McCrae Dowless was doing and that Harris bankrolled "criminal activity."

https://twitter.com/JoeBrunoWSOC9/status...3449068544

Jennifer Boyd told Channel 9 she was simply helping people who didn’t have time to go to the polls after we found her signature on 55 absentee ballots.

She admitted to helping fill out 52 of those ballots herself.

Lisa Britt's name is listed as the second witness on dozens of ballots signed by Jennifer Boyd. But some of those voters told @PaulBoydWSOC9 that Britt was never present, just Jennifer

Two voters tell @PaulBoydWSOC9 the State Bureau of Investigations contacted them yesterday. The SBI would not confirm

North Carolina elections board identifies 'person of interest' in fraud probe

The board has refused to certify Republican Mark Harris as the winner of the Nov. 6 election for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives as it investigates possible fraud involving absentee ballots from two rural counties.

In a statement, the board said it has assigned four investigators to the probe and issued subpoenas to the Red Dome Group, a consulting firm that Dowless performed work for, along with the Harris campaign committee and the campaign for a local Bladen County sheriff candidate.

Residents in rural Bladen County have provided sworn affidavits that people came to their homes to collect absentee ballots they had not filled in. In North Carolina, it is illegal for a third party to turn in absentee ballots.

Two women have told WSOC-TV in North Carolina that Dowless paid them to collect absentee ballots and deliver them to him. Dowless worked for the Red Dome Group, the station reported. Neither Dowless nor Red Dome has responded to requests for comment.

Bladen and another rural community under review, Robeson County, saw high interest in absentee ballots this year with abnormally large numbers of ballots unreturned, according to an analysis by Michael Bitzer, a politics and history professor at Catawba College in North Carolina.

If fraud is uncovered, the board could order a new election.

RE: FRAUD: NC Board of Elections refuse to certify the Mark Harris win
Quote:What is the case against lame-duck legislatures? In essence, policymakers are acting without the traditional backdrop of public accountability—a looming election—to govern their behavior. Freed of that pressure, legislators may behave differently. In some cases, we might welcome legislators feeling freer to follow their instincts, and there is some evidence that congressional lame duck sessions are more productive than at other times of the year.

But the soon-to-be-exiting politicians may also adopt policy positions that are clearly at odds with the will of the people. Sore losers make for bad lame ducks.

Such is the case now in Wisconsin and Michigan, where Republicans are using the window before the new legislature arrives to kneecap their successors. Gerrymandered legislatures are pushing through a hodgepodge of policies they have no mandate for, and which have, in some cases, been expressly rejected by the public.

Let’s take Wisconsin, where I lived and worked as a professor of public affairs in Madison for 13 years. Incumbent Republican Governor Scott Walker lost to Democrat Tony Evers in the 2018 election, breaking up the unified control of government that the GOP has enjoyed since 2010. In aggregate, Republicans had fewer votes for their State Assembly candidates than Democrats in 2018, but thanks to the magic of extreme gerrymandering, retain comfortable majorities. Now, having lost the governorship, they set out to win the lame duck session.

RE: FRAUD: NC Board of Elections refuse to certify the Mark Harris win
Exclusive: A second woman, Cheryl Kinlaw, tells me she was paid $100 by McCrae Dowless to pickup absentee ballots. She said she never thought it was illegal because Dowless "has been doing it for years." She says needed extra money for Christmas presents. , Kinlaw never mailed the ballots. She gave them to McCrae Dowless. She doesn't know what he did with them afterward.

"I don't know what happened to them, he had stacks of them on his desk."

She says she has no doubt Dowless wanted Mark Harris and Sheriff Jim McVicker to win.


Two of the top absentee witnesses (of the 159 envelopes I obtained) told me Dowless paid them. The others: Hester- threatened to call the cops on me. J Dowless, Edwards- not home Britt- doesn't live at the address she put on ballot S Dowless- home, didn't answer door

N.C. GOP says fresh misconduct allegation should trigger new House election

“This action by election officials would be a fundamental violation of the sense of fair play, honesty, and integrity that the Republican Party stands for,” he said in a statement. “We can never tolerate the state putting its thumb on the scale. The people involved in this must be held accountable and should it be true, this fact alone would likely require a new election.”

RE: FRAUD: NC Board of Elections refuse to certify the Mark Harris win
Quote:Reports with vote totals released by the state board showed that a tally at the only early voting location in Bladen County was run on November 3. North Carolina law mandates that such a tallying wait for the closing of all polls — in this case, 7:30 p.m. on November 6.

Additionally, according to the Charlotte Observer, a poll worker said in affidavit that the report was run on November 3 and that it “was viewed by officials … who were not judges,” which, in the poll worker’s understanding, was “improper.”

North Carolina GOP Chair Robin Hayes said in a statement Tuesday that such a “leak” of early vote totals “would be a fundamental violation of the sense of fair play, honesty, and integrity that the Republican Party stands for.”

“The people involved in this must be held accountable and should it be true, this fact alone would likely require a new election,” Hayes said.

Hayes pointed to the surprise recent resignation of the chair of the county board of elections, a Democrat, to argue that a “systematic failure of the election process in this area of the state” had been “going on for at least the last decade.”

RE: FRAUD: NC Board of Elections refuse to certify the Mark Harris win
An election marked by gerrymandering, allegations of voter suppression, and legislative power grabs highlights the electoral reality of the GOP

The maps drawn by Republican majorities in politically competitive states preserved clear advantages for the GOP, often through mechanisms that federal courts found purposefully diluted the votes of people of color and thus violated the Voting Rights Act. Courts were active in striking down those racial gerrymanders in state legislative and congressional maps. But when it came to parties pursuing naked advantages by targeting voters by their parties instead, the Supreme Court demurred on so-called partisan gerrymanders in North Carolina and Wisconsin, although the Pennsylvania Supreme Court did block a partisan gerrymander from Republicans there.

In Michigan, where a ballot initiative that would replace the current partisan redistricting process with an independent commission passed with 61 percent of the votes in November, a new federal lawsuit alleging that Republicans created a “durable partisan gerrymander” for several elections will proceed to trial soon.

The results of such gerrymanders appear undeniable. In Pennsylvania, Michigan, and North Carolina, Democrats won 54, 53, and 51 percent of the overall votes for state houses of representatives, respectively, but only picked up 45, 47, and 45 percent of the seats. In Wisconsin, the situation is perhaps even more extreme. Evers won by 1 percent of the popular vote, but only won in 36 of the state’s 99 legislative assembly districts. Assuming that a preference for Evers roughly correlates with a Democratic voter, it means that the shape of the assembly districts confers at least a 20-seat majority to Republicans in the legislature alone. Republicans won a 27-seat majority this fall.




Quote:In 2014, while Republicans deliberated internally over whether to allow an immigration-reform package through the House, a group of pollsters—including the current White House adviser Kellyanne Conway—released findings indicating that an anti-immigration message could serve as a GOP base-builder. These findings became the underpinnings of the strategy that brought President Donald Trump to the White House, while also cementing the GOP as a white man’s party—the party of the minority.

That strategy is newly relevant now, as the Republican Party looks to complete lame-duck-session power grabs in state legislatures in Wisconsin and Michigan, preemptively stripping power away from incoming Democratic governors. Those moves are characterized by Democrats as brazen and unprecedented “coups” by a party that was soundly beaten in the midterms but, through anti-democratic means, has managed to exert undue power.

But those midwestern power grabs are not necessarily shocking or unpredictable. Rather, they are an extension of the underlying strategy that had already been the major organizing principle of the GOP even as Priebus wrote his report. For decades, the Republican Party prepared to keep power even as it represented a coalition that became the minority. Now, the plan is in full effect.

It’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment when this became the destiny of the Republican Party. One could go all the way back to when the 1964 Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater broke the Democratic stranglehold on the Jim Crow South, picking up Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas on an anti-civil-rights agenda, initiating the proto “southern strategy” and sparking a realignment of white conservatism with the GOP. Or the story could start just a year later, when the Voting Rights Act ushered in the first era of anything resembling true democracy in the country’s history, and also set in motion an anti-voting-rights insurgency in the South.

Closer still, the gerrymandering and geographic polarization that have become so critical to modern Republican plans might not have been possible without the “white flight” in the 1960s and ’70s associated with that conservatism, and with the nascence of white suburban evangelicals as a political force under Ronald Reagan.

RE: FRAUD: NC Board of Elections refuse to certify the Mark Harris win
Quote:But is this lame duck all that different than previous lame ducks?

According to state political historians, the Lame Duck session was always possible in the legislature but the first one didn’t take place until 1900 - over sixty years after Michigan became a state.

Bill Ballenger is a former Republican lawmaker and current political commentator. He said during that first Lame Duck session no legislation was passed.

“Then you had to wait until 1932 to find another Lame Duck session of the legislature. Then you had three in a row: 32, 34, 36.”

Ballenger said Lame Duck sessions typically occur during transitions in power.

“So you can see why perhaps at that time legislators were thinking ‘you know before this new governor or legislature comes in maybe there are some things we can get done.'”

He said not much passed during those early sessions.

Over the years there have been increasingly more Lame Duck sessions - with each one geared towards passing more legislation.

“More bills voted on more bills passed more bills signed into law. That’s persisted up to the present day.”

But, Ballenger said, there’s no question things have become more heated in the last decade.

“I would say this year’s lame duck session looks like it could be the most momentous ever with the possible exception of 2012 six years ago.”

David Rutledge is a former Democratic representative. He said he remembers the voters rejecting an emergency manager law that had gone to the ballot in 2012.

“To my surprise, the legislature convened in lame duck made some tweaks to the proposal that the voters had rejected, and passed it anyway.”

Rutledge said it just doesn’t make sense to allow lawmakers who have already been voted out to make laws. He says not long after the 2012 lame duck a bill was introduced that would have curbed the practice.

“It died before it even got to the floor. It didn’t make it.”

Rutledge said the current lame duck seems like an abuse of power - and if lame ducks continue this way, he expects to see changes.

“It’s a practice that I predict you’ll see maybe even a voter initiated petition to end lame duck sessions in Michigan.”
