It’s been 21 months and two weeks since the 2020 election took place. Investigators continue uncovering brand new evidence TO THIS DAY that our democracy was stolen right out from under us. Federal law requires states to preserve all evidence from federal elections for 22 months before destroying it.
The purpose of this preservation, as short-term as it is, is so that audits can be conducted for nearly two years after an election. Only one of our 49 states – Arizona – actually conducted an audit and it uncovered conclusive, determinative fraud.
And now the states are about to have a gleeful shredding party in two weeks unless citizen groups prevail in their lawsuits to preserve those records even longer.
It’s pretty remarkable when you look back at the previous 21 months and marvel over the way that every institution in nearly every state has worked to steal the election for Joe Biden. (How did that work out for them, by the way? Are they happy with the results they achieved with Biden in office?) All of the ballots and election records must be preserved for 22 months, and yet… nearly every state prevented interested parties from examining the ballots.
Whenever a citizens’ group like VoterGA in Georgia sued for the opportunity to examine the ballots for potential malfeasance, a judge would block them and tell them they have “no standing.” So, the Georgia ballots have been sitting undisturbed in a warehouse for almost two years, but no one is allowed to ever look at them. Why bother even keeping them?
In other states, the Secretary of State demands tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to make photocopies of the ballots. Even if a citizens’ group ponies up the extortion money, the Secretaries then make up another excuse about why they can’t provide images of all of the ballots. (Georgia actually has a state law that requires ballots and election documents to be preserved for 24 months, so Brad Raffensperger has to sweat it out for two more months before he can have a 2020 shredding party.)
Lawsuits are pending in both Wisconsin and Pennsylvania right now to extend the preservation deadline for their 2020 election records. The Pennsylvania one is unlikely to prevail, since the courts there have rejected every single attempt to look at the records. The one in Wisconsin, however, is based on the recent state Supreme Court ruling that the drop boxes were unconstitutional. It has a better chance of prevailing, and we’ll keep an eye on that one.
As far as new evidence surfacing all the time, that’s absolutely true. A citizens’ group in New York has uncovered a massive issue with their state’s dirty voter rolls, which it took almost two years’ worth of work to uncover. But this keeps happening every single time that someone peeks under the hood, no matter what state it happens in.
Did you know that the GOP in Spokane, Washington has been trying to get a closer look at the 2020 ballots all this time? And that they recently voted to reject the results of the 2020 election, and they’re calling for Washington’s electoral college votes for Biden to be revoked?
Yeah, that’s happening in uber liberal Washington! States that appear to be reliably “blue” in federal elections probably wouldn’t turn out to be so blue after all, if only someone was allowed to conduct a real audit.
We need to pray for the groups fighting to preserve these election documents, if for no other reason than for future historians to be able to look back and point to where it all fell apart. I’m reminded of the speech that Ronald Reagan delivered in his inaugural address as Governor of California back in the 1960s.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Once those records are shredded and/or destroyed, this will only be a story that we tell our children and grandchildren.
