Democrat vote counters have quickly begun to lockdown what should be a transparent
process and to throw a veil of secrecy over the vote counting process in states key to shifting the win in Tuesday’s election from President Trump to Joe Biden.
As conservative journalist Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) tweeted:
It's no coincidence that the state secretaries in the states that are extending the vote-counting and suddenly finding & dumping huge bundles of Biden ballots on the totals are all DEMOCRATS. Democrats control the counting in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
And our friends at True the Voted posted undercover video of Michigan election officials kicking Republicans out of the counting area where they were legally entitled to witness the counting:
Meanwhile, in Michigan: “We want all the Republican challengers out of this room!”
Election supervisor: “I’m not answering anymore questions.”
Social media reports indicate the atmosphere at Detroit’s absentee ballot counting center is growing more heated with Democrat operatives covering the observation windows.
Meanwhile, the Daily Caller reported elections officials in Michigan and Wisconsin refused to explain Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s sudden and dramatic vote tally increase that occurred in both states Wednesday morning.
Michigan and Wisconsin state officials warned against misinformation being shared online, but wouldn’t comment on specific vote tranches that appeared to show former Vice President Joe Biden suddenly receiving more votes than President Donald Trump. The two battleground states remained tightly contested as of Wednesday afternoon.
In the face of these outrages President Trump's reelection campaign on Wednesday said it was filing a lawsuit to halt the counting of votes in Michigan until it is given access to observe the tabulation process.
Campaign manager Bill Stepien alleged that it had not been given "meaningful access" to observe the opening of ballots at multiple locations.
"We have filed suit today in the Michigan Court of Claims to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted," Stepien said in a statement. "We also demand to review those ballots which were opened and counted while we did not have meaningful access. President Trump is committed to ensuring that all legal votes are counted in Michigan and everywhere else."
In Pennsylvania the Trump campaign has moved aggressively as well. Justin Clark, Trump 2020 Deputy Campaign Manager, issued the following statement outlining the campaign’s actions to ensure a fair and open process vote counting process in the Keystone State:
"This is the most important election of our lifetime, and President Trump made clear our path forward last night: ensure the integrity of this election for the good of the nation. Bad things are happening in Pennsylvania. Democrats are scheming to disenfranchise and dilute Republican votes. President Trump and his team are fighting to put a stop to it.
"Pennsylvania’s unhinged, radical left Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar has tried her hardest to bake in a backdoor to victory for Joe Biden with late, illegal ballots in collusion with the partisan state supreme court. The United States Constitution is clear on this issue: the legislature sets the time, place, and manner of elections in America, not state courts or executive officials. As the President has rightly said, the Supreme Court must resolve this crucial contested legal question, so President Trump’s Campaign is moving to intervene in the existing Supreme Court litigation over the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s unlawful extension of the mail-in ballot receipt deadline. The law is on President Trump’s side: as the Eighth Circuit just said, to change the ballot receipt deadline is in fact a change of the time, place, and manner of the election—and only a state legislature or the United States Congress can do that under the Constitution.
"In addition to the Trump Campaign’s motion to intervene in Pennsylvania Republican Party v. Boockvar, we are taking two additional critical legal actions today to ensure the integrity of Pennsylvania’s election. We are suing to stop Democrat election officials from hiding the ballot counting and processing from our Republican poll observers—observers whose only job is to make sure every valid ballot is counted, and counted once. The eyes of the country are on Pennsylvania, but Pennsylvania has kept eyes off of the absentee ballot counting process all along, and that must stop today. In Philadelphia and elsewhere, Democrat officials forced our observers to stay 25 feet or more from the counting process, leaving no meaningful way whatsoever for our observers to do their jobs. We are also suing to temporarily halt counting until there is meaningful transparency and Republicans can ensure all counting is done above board and by the law.
"The Trump Campaign is also suing to stop Pennsylvania Democrats from breaking the very law that helps America vote—the Help America Vote Act (HAVA). While HAVA requires that states ensure certain first-time voters provide identification in order to vote, Secretary Boockvar—three days ago—re-wrote Pennsylvania Election Code to abuse her unilateral executive fiat and move the deadline for absentee and mail-in voters to provide missing proof of identification well past the deadline. Without our action, Pennsylvanians, and possibly all Americans, may be forced to wait yet another several days for the outcome of the election – all because of the Secretary’s ridiculous eleventh-hour guidance that directly violates the Election Code.
"With these key actions, President Trump is telling all Americans he will do whatever it takes to ensure the integrity of this election for the good of the nation."
American constitutional government is founded on the assumption that elections will be conducted with goodwill and in good faith. When Democrats exclude Republicans from the vote counting process, when by law the process is to be open and transparent, then the goodwill and good faith that underpin our political system is irretrievably broken, with results that can only bode evil for our 244-year experiment in constitutional government.
