National Review Calls It: ‘Sorry, Brian Kemp Still Won’

Published

on

National Review editor Rich Lowry has declared Brian Kemp the winner of the Georgia governor’s race over Stacey Abrams, adding to the numerous calls over the last few days to declare this election finally over.

Democrat Stacey Abrams has no statistical possibility of winning, and in fact is suffering severe political damage stemming from reports of rampant duplicate voting in Fulton County. Abrams’ campaign-style outreach operation to find provisional ballots can not overcome Kemp’s 62,779-vote lead, especially after the Fulton provisional ballots are fully investigated by the Georgia Secretary of State’s office should the office choose to do so.

Lowry calls it:

“In the counties that have reported official provisional numbers on the Secretary of State’s website thus far, Abrams only has a net 90-vote margin on Brian Kemp.

Counties not yet reporting provisional ballot results: 41

*Even with these counties not yet reporting final provisional results, several have already reported ineligible ballot numbers. For example: Fulton County (1,556 of 3,722), DeKalb County (646 of 3,000), Chatham County (140 of 329), and Henry County (172 of 339)

Maximum number of eligible provisional ballots outstanding in those 41 counties — 14,204

Maximum possible remaining outstanding military absentee ballots in counties not yet certified — 3,291

Total possible ballots remaining (all eligible provisional ballots + all possible military ballots) — 17,495

*Military ballots must have been received by 5 p.m. on Friday, November 9. They are included in certified count from their respective county.

If all 17,495 possible votes were verified and accepted, and were cast for Stacey Abrams these would be the final results:

Kemp: 50.10% — 1,975,162 (current total)

Abrams: 48.95% — 1,929,878 (adding all 17,495 possible outstanding ballots)

Metz: 0.95% — 37,113

Total: 3,942,153

Kemp Margin: +45,284

So even if Abrams received every possible outstanding ballot there would be no runoff and no recount. This election is over. Brian Kemp is the governor-elect of Georgia.”

Rich Lowry’s National Review statement ends

I reported Sunday:

Bombshell numbers out of Fulton County, Georgia show that a vast amount of the provisional ballots submitted in the Democrat stronghold were rejected for being duplicate ballots.

Now, the Democrat Stacey Abrams campaign is pushing on Fulton County, running an entire campaign-style operation with phone banking, texts and email blasts to reach out to people who allegedly cast provisional ballots on Election Day.

Abrams’ search for provisional ballots may yield fruit, but her search for credible provisional ballots that can be counted in this election will prove futile. Why?

A full 1,811 provisional ballots in Fulton County were duplicates (49 percent), and 1,556 of them (42 percent of the total provisionals) were rejected.

Three of the individuals were not citizens, 581 were not registered to vote, and 972 did not live in that county.

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

Published

on

A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.

Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.

Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.

Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.

Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.

In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
