Maxine Mosley was trailing her Republican opponent Larry Gagne in the Hillsborough 16 House District race last week by 23 votes.

But the machine recount gave the win to Mosley the Democrat.

Imagine that!

Manchesterlink reported:

Following a recount, Democrat Maxine Mosley has now defeated Republican Larry Gagne in the Hillsborough 16 House District, consisting of Manchester’s Ward 6, by a final total of 1799 to 1798.

Heading into Monday, Mosley trailed Gagne, 1797 to 1820.

On Monday evening, Mosley said she was overwhelmed by the result, and was told by Secretary of State representatives that a swing of more than nine votes is rare, so this result was historic.

“I did not really anticipate that I could pull it off, but I wanted to use the process of recount to make sure that everyone that supported me knew I was doing everything in my power to have the most verifiable vote at the end,” she said. “I will take today as a win with great, great gratitude.

“It’s very unusual, especially in Manchester with the machines we have to make up 24 votes, we were winning by 23. I don’t know what happened,” said Gagne.

Last week, the Biden DOJ put their dirty hands in the wrong place, warning state lawmakers that if they proceeded to audit fraudulent elections they will be targeted.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sent a letter to AG Merrick Garland clarifying that this is not a game for AZ officials.

OAN correspondent Christina Bobb tweeted the following update.

AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich steps up big time to support the AZ Senate. Sends letter to AG Garland saying “My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing.” Brnovich says he will protect state sovereignty.

The full letter is below.

Attorney General Merrick B. Garland
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-000 I
Dear Attorney General Garland,
June 14,2021

Late last week, you made troubling comments about the ongoing efforts in states to ensure election integrity. Your statements displayed an alarming disdain for state sovereignty as defined under
the 10th Amendment of the United States Constitution and the election provisions in Articles I and 11.

Your comments followed a May 5 letter from Pamela Karlan of the Department of Justice’s Civil
Rights Division, on the subject of the Arizona Senate’s oversight of the Maricopa County audit. This
letter appeared more interested in supporting the hysterical outcries of leftist pundits on cable television,
rather than the rule of law.

My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or
interfere with our State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections. We stand
ready to defend federalism and state sovereignty against any partisan attacks or federal overreach.
It is important to remember that the states created the federal government, not the other way
around. America’s founders intentionally restrained the federal government’s constitutional boundaries to
ensure each state could flourish in unique ways. Today, our federal government has largely forgotten the
Founders’ intent, but my office has not.

There are no issues more important for states to prioritize than the integrity of our elections. This
is the cornerstone of our republic, binding together the peoples’ trust in the whole of government. Today,
we see mistrust in our elections from Americans on all sides of the political spectrum. This should not be
a partisan issue. States can and should take every opportunity to reassure all citizens that their vote
counts.

My office looks for ways to work alongside the federal government to uphold our laws within the
constraints of the 10th Amendment and the election provisions in Articles I and II. As I have
demonstrated several times, however, Arizona will not sit back and let the Biden administration abuse its
authority, refuse to uphold laws, or attempt to commandeer our state’s sovereignty.

Respectfully,
Mark Brnovich
Attorney General

AZ State Senator Wendy Rogers had a similar message, threatening jail time for Garland if he lays a finger on Arizona’s election.

The Biden administration forgets a lot. They must have forgotten about states’ rights.

Rudy Giuliani calls Pennsylvania case a success: ‘A lot’ of voter fraud evidence yet to be seen


Posted by Daniel Chaitin | Washington Examiner | November 30, 2020

Rudy Giuliani said there are two ways the Trump legal team is getting a “major censorship” of its widespread voter fraud allegations. He told Newsmax on Friday that the Trump camp is equally focused on presenting evidence to state legislatures as it is on court hearings, but it is facing an uphill battle because of judges who won’t hear the cases and media that won’t air its presentations.

“We’ve got a lot of evidence. We don’t have a lot of time,” Giuliani said. “The public has only a small idea of the kind of evidence that we have.”

The Trump legal team, led by Giuliani, and its allies have endured dozens of losses, and they are turning to presentations of witnesses to state legislatures in places such as Arizona and Michigan. The team had one such event in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, this week, and the Trump team said a judge in Nevada will allow Republicans to present their findings at a hearing on Dec. 3.

As it stands now, President-elect Joe Biden has 306 Electoral College votes, and President Trump has 232. More than one state would have to flip for Trump to emerge as the winner. Time is running out as states are certifying their votes ahead of an Electoral College meeting in mid-December.

A federal appeals court in Philadelphia on Friday rejected Trump’s latest bid to challenge the 2020 election results. However, Giuliani insisted that because the team got its presentation before GOP lawmakers, “in essence, we accomplished the purpose of that case.” He added that the Supreme Court “can now take a look at it.”

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf signed off on the certification of Biden as the winner of the state and its 20 electoral votes on Tuesday, but a Pennsylvania appeals court judge ordered state officials on Wednesday not to take any more steps toward certification as part of a separate lawsuit brought by Republican Rep. Mike Kelly and others trying to invalidate all mail-in ballots, which were mostly cast by Democrats. Wolf’s administration asked the state Supreme Court to intervene.

In addition, dozens of GOP state lawmakers proposed a resolution on Friday disputing the 2020 election results.

The former New York City mayor also remarked on how media outlets gave coverage to Trump calling into the Pennsylvania presentation, but Giuliani claimed that if there were witnesses against Trump, “every single one of those witnesses would be on for days like they did during the phony impeachment hearings.”

Divided Pennsylvania House gives approval for audit of 2020 election


Reported by FORD TURNER | Post Gazette | November 20, 2020

HARRISBURG — A deeply divided state House on Thursday voted to approve a Republican-sponsored measure that sets up a near-immediate audit of the 2020 election, citing inconsistencies and confusion in the electorate as evidence the process must be improved for future elections in the state. The chamber voted 112 to 90 for a resolution that told the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee, or a contractor it will hire, to conduct the audit and report back by early February.

Republicans argued they were responding to constituents who were confused by some of the procedures as the state conducted a high-turnout election during a pandemic and under greatly expanded mail-in voting eligibility. Democratic arguments that the measure should be revised or was unconstitutional were defeated by the GOP majority.

“There is no need to fear this audit. I welcome it. We all should welcome it, to find out what went right and what went wrong,” said Bedford County Rep. Jesse Topper, the prime sponsor of the resolution.

The resolution does not require approval by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf or the state Senate. There is no limit on how much the committee can spend on the study. Separately, the Department of State plans another “risk limiting” audit under a pilot program to apply statistical tools that will measure the election’s accuracy and check for possible interference. This second audit is to involve data from every county.

Democrats attacked the proposal, calling it unconstitutional, damaging to democracy and unnecessary.

Mr. Wolf issued a written statement by email during the debate, saying any audit done by this approach would be “incomplete, duplicative and unreliable.”

The committee is expected to generate a report that is to include, for each county and for the state as a whole: For both absentee and mail-in ballots, the number of applications received, the number that were approved by the county board of elections, and the number returned by voters that were subsequently canvassed.

• The number of qualified voters who used provisional ballots.

• The number of applications for absentee ballots from people who were not registered to vote, but subsequently did submit a voter registration application in time for the election — and the same information concerning mail-in ballots.

• For each county, the date and time that the county board of elections began pre-canvassing absentee ballots and mail-in ballots.

Reviews of incidents with voting machines; of “any inconsistent treatment” of mail-in ballots received after 8 p.m. on Election Day; of any inconsistencies in the way counties processed “deficient” ballots; and of access given to poll watchers and “authorized representatives.”

The House vote came the day after its State Government Committee approved the resolution in a party-line vote. Mr. Topper, State Government Committee interim Chairman Seth Grove and other Republicans said the need for the audit was not suspected fraud but a widespread uncertainty that the election had been conducted fairly and in even-handed fashion across the state.

The resolution cites as a reason for the audit a “litany of inconsistencies” in the way the election was carried out and a resulting loss of public confidence. It says “Pennsylvania citizens have questioned the process by which the 2020 general election has been conducted.”

Mr. Topper noted that within his own district, one county allowed certain ballots to be “cured” — or have procedural mistakes corrected — while another did not.

“That’s not fraud, but that’s confusion in the district that I represent,” Mr. Topper said.
