    Another part of the strategy to make sure only the right votes get counted.

    Election skeptic wins GOP race for Nevada secretary of state

    There’s been no evidence of widespread fraud or conspiracy to steal the 2020 election, which Trump lost to President Joe Biden.

    Marchant is one of several Republicans across the country running for secretary of state, seeking to oversee the next presidential election while denying the outcome of the last one. In February, he told a crowd gathered for a candidates forum that their vote “hasn’t counted for decades.”

    Yea, they are infiltrating the election machinery at the local level throughout. That can make it difficult. And in many areas they have sympathetic judges. And when all else fails, they have the paramilitaries

    comforting to know that if the gop doesn't like the outcome they can just throw it out. That's how a republic is supposed to work, right? :rolleyes:

    For those who think that Republicans believe in strict adherence to voting rules and anything else is fraudulent, Jerry Torres is back on the ballot in the Republican primary

    And in the court filings, Torres acknowledges he was in Africa at the time three versions of his legally required candidate oath were notarized by Mississippi-based notaries, even though two of them say he was physically present, and that he signed a blank oath form before leaving. The lawsuit says that means the oath isn’t valid.

    Torres, a Lakeland national security contractor, has vowed to spend up to $15 million of his own money running against Castor.

    His lawyer, Rep. Mike Beltran, R-Lithia, argued in filings that the signatures were valid as “copies of his authentic signature,” and noted that another congressional candidate was allowed to remain on the ballot after signing an incorrect oath form.

    Republicans whip their asses with silly things like oaths, so it's no surprise his notarization was fraudulent.
