Posted on 12/02/2010 6:25:14 AM PST by Blood of Tyrants
Alaska Superior Court Judge William Carey held a hearing today on Lisa Murkowskis motion to intervene in the lawsuit brought by Joe Miller, Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate, challenging the legality of the process the Division of Elections used to count write-in ballots, as well as several other discrepancies and improprieties in the 2010 general election for U.S. Senate.

Hang in there, Joe. Give as good as you get on this one, Joe. By her own rules she would do it to you and to Alaska on turned tables. She already has done it to you. At least your delay will be a huge assist to democracy in the vote count. Lisa won’t be missed if she’s late to the senate and has to forfeit her seat on whatever committee it is that she’s on, if she isn’t there by January 1. Besides, Joe, you may win when the dust clears.
The GIST of the story, not the just.....for future reference.
I got a feeling that they will be.
I am pulling for Joe,but, reality is reality. He is playing against a stacked deck.
Joe is honorable for not rolling over like the GOP almost always does. How many recounts do Pubbies win?
The standard playbook is that Dems recount until they win, and the GOP just rolls over. Good doggie, GOP!
The people of Alaska need to demand that their election provess is not tainted or compromised.
So am I! This is a real fighter, someone we need in the Senate...not someone who throws out the line that she just might caucus with the democrats! Well, Ms. Murkowski, why don’t you just run on the democrat ticket the next time and be done with the deception.
Read somewhere yesterday that there may potentially be a significant number of write-in ballots that were duplicates, ie. individuals casting multiple ballots. If that’s the case, then it would be fairly clear that the LM campaign has orchestrated a massive fraud, and someone needs to be sent away for a long time.
As I understand it, SCOTUS in Bush v Gore basically said that if you change the rules in midstream for one candidate you have to do it for them all. So if you hand-count the ballots you have to hand-count them all.
They roll over because the Establishment Republican Party and the Democrat Party are first cousins.And every opportunity they get the Establishment Republicans marry into the Democrat Party.
Joe Miller needs volunteers to investigate and expose all voter fraud during this election. Ask for volunteers from retired law enforcement and retired military if he doesn’t have the funds to hire investigators himself.
Good for fighter Joe.....my $50.. in the pot.....he needs a money bomb to keep this going....
now it's,”one man (or woman) with a judge in his pocket...
The Left have learned their Lenin well and as our laws and judges become creepily dissimilar, conversations about a full revolt to restore the US Constitution become more mainstream.
More like the “Establishment Republican Party” goes through a vast number of knee pads every election.
Do NOT trust them at all!
What is the status of the election? When will we know who won? or who stole it.
I may be wrong, but I think they ruled you couldn't change the rules after the election.
But the current Court ruled 9-0, that using someone else's SSSN# was not identity theft. Who knows what other goodies they have planned for us.
Crazy, isn’t it?
Liberalism MUST be a mental disorder because I feel like I’m living in an Alzheimer’s unit. I’d laugh but neither Alzheimers nor the situation we’re in is really a laughing matter.
In the “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” there’s a place where dreams come true, and it’s a place of terror because it’s not a place where DAYDREAMS come true but where the actual dreams you have where nothing is impossible and nothing has to make sense actually become reality. In dreams nothing is predictable, nothing can be planned, nothing follows an established order of cause-effect, and the bad stuff spirals out of control.
That’s what it feels like in the USA today. Even normally apolitical people are sensing it, that our world is literally becoming insane because the insane people are now making legally-binding decisions for the whole society.
Keep it up Joe...
shame on Alaskans who even gave Cow a chance....and today we know that zero and his ilk are forbiding off shore drilling....
“What is the status of the election? When will we know who won? or who stole it.”
It depends on how the judge rules. First, I expect the judge to rule that ALL ballots must be counted in a similar manner, i.e. that if Murkowski votes are hand counted and the counters are allowed to determine “voter intent”, then ALL ballots are to be counted in the same manner. So far Miller’s ballots have ONLY been counted by machine with the machine throwing out many ballots that may have a partial erasure in one of the bubbles causing it to invalidate the ballot. Other ballots may have been invalidated because the voter didn’t fill out enough of the bubble beside the name. Again, ONLY the ballots with write ins were hand counted and given special consideration. If the judge rules for some reason that you can count some ballots one way and other ballots a different manner, they will quickly be slapped down because the Supreme Court settled this in 2000.
Second, Miller will ask the judge to apply the law as written, i.e. that the bubble must be filled out next to the write in blank and the name of the person they want to vote for must be written AS IT APPEARS on the list of write in candidates. It is less likely that the judges will follow the law because so many are beholding to Murkowski’s family.
If that fails, Miller should appeal on the grounds that the judge is biased because he was placed on the bench by the Kow’s dad.
“I may be wrong, but I think they ruled you couldn’t change the rules after the election.”
If you are talking about Bush vs. Gore in 2000, I think that the judges ruled that you had to use a uniform counting standard for ALL ballots cast, that no set of ballots could be given special consideration over others.
