Soros-Funded Groups Demand Gov. Rick Scott Recuse Himself from Florida Recount
Breitbart ^ | November 11, 2018 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 11/10/2018 10:50:15 PM PST by conservative98

Two organizations financed by billionaire liberal activist George Soros have threatened to take Florida Gov. Rick Scott to court if he doesn’t recuse himself from the state’s recount, which includes his own Senatorial election.

“Please issue a public statement that you will recuse yourself and remove yourself from any oversight of the 2018 election immediately or we will have no choice but to seek a formal emergency remedy from the courts,” reads a letter sent to Scott by the two groups, the League of Women Voters and Common Cause.

The letter claims Scott “intentionally politicized governance of the elections” when his used his position to ask the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate possible irregularities in ballot offices in Southern Florida.

The League of Women Voters purports to be “nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working on vital issues of concern to members and the public.” Capital Research charges the group has evidenced a “major flirtation with the Democratic Party.” The League documents its funding from Soros’s Open Society Institute

Common Cause is also financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations. Its mission says it aims “to build a democracy that works for us all.”

I demand that all Soros groups and Soros-funded groups recuse themselves from making any demands of Florida.

Call their bluff. Make them sue. Take it all the way to the Supreme Court.

We need to contact governor Scott and urge him to stand his ground and not recuse himself, no matter what Soros’ group does. Unfortunately, contacting him by email makes your email address public. But we can send a snail mail letter to him. I think that letter is then available to the public domain though.

They do list a phone number.

So does it make it harder for them to steal it if Scott refuses to resign?

Time to investigate Soros and fronts for “election interference” by laundering tax-exempt money to politically active organizations like the League of Women Voters and Common Cause, even if they might be registered with the IRS as 501C4 groups.

Put them all in jail for sedition. You won’t have to worry about any demands. Then find a non-corrupt judge to try them.

Imagine an Obama appointed justice to the USSC “recusing” over the Obamacare appeal. HA! Fat chance!

This is one more thing we can un-thank Sessions for:

He has gratuitously given the mantra of Recuse! to the rabid left, and they will use it for everything, just like Racist!

When does any leftist recuse when it is warranted? But now any conservative will be required to recuse when it is not warranted.

Unthank you, Jeff Sessions.

I hope we're not stupid enough to fall for their "recusal" request. Again. Even republicans cannot be that slow at learning. Can we?
