Democratic ´army of lawyers´ heads
to Florida amid GOP fears of bid
to ´steal´ Senate seat

Washington Examiner, by Anna Giaritelli

Democrats are gearing up for a titanic legal fight over what could be multiple recounts in the state of Florida - 18 years after the state´s ramshackle voting system delayed the election of President George W. Bush for 37 days. In the balance are the governor´s mansion and one U.S. Senate seat, which Republicans believed they had secured on Tuesday. Just 17,429 out of 8,165,741 votes cast in the Senate race separate the GOP´s Gov. Rick Scott, who is leading, from Sen. Bill Nelson, the Democratic incumbent. In the governor´s race, Ron DeSantis, a former GOP congressman, leads Andrew Gillum,

I´m having a big "Al Frankin" flashback right now.

If at first you don´t win at the polls "find" enough votes to declare victory!

Worked every time for uncle Joe too.

Many people have allowed known lawbreaker Snipes to remain in charge of Broward elections. A circuit court judge ruled in 2018 that Broward County Election Supervisor Snipes broke federal and state law by too quickly destroying ballots from August 2016 primaries--there was a pending lawsuit seeking access to the ballots. This is public knowledge but no GOP official demanded she be removed. She´s had the job since 2003. Why does the GOP exist? To sit around and have ´fears?´

Here´s your first test, AG Whitaker. May be considered an over reach by some but what is more sacred than the sanctity of the vote? When that is lost USA is done.

I remember in Fla during the Bush, Gore, debacle, where they had video of a Communist democrat precinct captain counting computer voting cards that were not punched as votes for Gore.

She said right there on video she was counting and reporting these votes as Gore votes even if it meant she would go to jail for doing so.

You can bet your boots that if the Democrats can, they will steal the Senate seat, as with the Democrats the end justifies the hook or by crook means they will use. Will the Republicans allow that to happen?

Why is it that when we have these recounts, they count,count, and recount, then suddenly when enough Dem votes appear, it´s over and official? I certainly hope the Republicans are sending equal numbers of lawyers.

Abrams Acknowledges Defeat in Georgia

‘This Is Not a Speech of Concession’
Washington Free Beacon, by David Rutz    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 11/17/2018 2:32:30 AM     Post Reply
Democrat Stacey Abrams acknowledged she had lost the Georgia governor´s race to Republican Brian Kemp on Friday, but she said it was not a concession speech in a fiery indictment of her opponent and the state´s election procedures. "I acknowledge that former secretary of state Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial elections, but to watch an elected official who claims to represent the people in the state baldly pin his hopes for election on the suppression of the people´s democratic right to vote has been truly appalling," Abrams said. "So let´s be clear. This

CBS White House correspondent Major Garrett says he disagrees with how CNN’s Jim Acosta conducted himself in last week’s explosive tete-a-tete with President Trump. Garrett spoke to Mediaite alum Larry O’Connor for his radio show on Friday, where he lamented the situation over CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump Administration for their revocation of Acosta’s press credentials. Garrett said he isn’t sure the White House will succeed in court with their legal argument their making against Acosta, though the lawsuit is “uncharted territory” in many ways and presents the judiciary with many new questions about press freedom. The court has since

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a Democrat, refused to concede in her race against Republican Brian Kemp, but has said there is no possibility of her defeating Kemp and has concluded her bid for Georgia governor. "I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election," Abrams said Friday. "This speech is not a concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper," Abrams said. "As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that. But, my assessment is the law currently allows no further

Friday on ABC’s “The View,” the panel discussed a federal judge’s ruling in favor of CNN by ordering that reporter Jim Acosta‘s White House access be restored. Co-host Abby Huntsman said, “The First Amendment is alive and well now. That’s the decision that they should have made — and it’s still pending, they have to make a final decision, But I think that gives you a pretty clear sense of the direction they’re going in. If you’re the White House, you may not like the guy, can’t stand him, but how are you surprised? Because what precedent would that set if

Ron Vitiello, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, bristled at his confirmation hearing on Thursday when Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) asked him about the perception "that ICE is administering its power in a way that is causing fear and intimidation, particularly among immigrants and specifically among immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America."Harris referred to a tweet issued by Vitiello three years ago, when he suggested -- in response to a question posed by Mark Levin -- that the Democrat Party should be called the "liberalcratic party or the NeoKlanist party."

During Thursday’s edition of The View, the panel weighed in on CNN´s lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” The panel rushed to Acosta’s defense, in addition to spouting the usual talking points about how Sarah Sanders is a liar. The liberal co-hosts on The View ultimately concluded that President Trump “does not like to be asked tough questions he doesn’t want to answer.” After explaining to President Trump that “that’s their job” to ask tough questions, co-host Whoopi Goldberg advised President Trump: “if you can’t handle it, get out of the kitchen,

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out. Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Jim Acosta´s First Amendment press rights trump the administration´s right to have orderly press conferences. He declared that the White House failed to give Acosta ´due process,´ something guaranteed in government proceedings under the Fifth Amendment. ´I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week,´ Acosta told other reporters outside the federal
