After listing off baseless accusations of fraud in the ongoing Pennsylvania vote count, Harmeet Dhillon told Lou Dobbs, “Meanwhile, we’re waiting for the United States Supreme Court, of which the president has nominated three justices, to step in and do something. And hopefully Amy Coney Barrett will come through and pick it up.”
As long as Dhillon isn't a member of the strange sect that Barrett belongs to, I imagine she will be staying as far away from all this as she possibly can. Nothing to be gained.

"Amid protests by Trump supporters outside ballot-counting facilities, Michigan’s attorney general pleaded with the public on Thursday to stop making harassing and threatening phone calls to staff in her office. “They are kind, hardworking public servants just doing their job,” Attorney General Dana Nessel wrote on Twitter. “Asking them to shove Sharpies in uncomfortable places is never appropriate and is a sad commentary on the state of our nation.” A conspiracy theory spread by Republicans that poll workers in Arizona tricked people into invalidating their ballots by giving them Sharpies was debunked on Wednesday.Nessel’s tweet came hours after a Michigan state judge dismissed a lawsuit from the Trump campaign to stop counting votes until their election inspectors were present, saying counting was already finished. Nessel called it “a win for democracy.”

She would be a fool to not recuse herself after she has been pointed to by Trump et al as effectively being on the court to do his bidding.

Law enforcement needs to protect these people. The scummy MAGA nut jobs are out of control. I do like the one instance of attempted voter fraud they found.

"Joe Gloria, the Clark County registrar of voters, said Thursday that he’s “concerned” for the safety of his staff as ballots continue to be counted in Nevada’s largest and heavily Democratic county. “I can tell you that my wife and my mother are very concerned for me,” he said at a press conference, adding, “We are putting measures into place to make sure that we have the security that is necessary. We are going to begin to monitor the vehicles as they come in.” Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was leading President Trump by about 11,400 votes as of 2 p.m. Thursday. Gloria added that the only instance of voter fraud he’s seen is a Trump voter who attempted to cast two ballots. Dozens of Trump supporters demonstrated outside Clark County election headquarters on Wednesday evening as part of a #StopTheSteal protest, and the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit to stop the counting of mail-in ballots in the county."

This is what four years of Trump have done. Can you imagine the effects of eight.

If for some reason we lose do we get to be little bitches and beat the hell out of the other party like they did. Because they don't believe in what we do. In fact in case we actually let Biden win. There will be far fewer results than this year because we'll help them find God. Democrats you were scared of Trump now's the true time to be afaird. We will do what you have done to our city's and prevail p.s. please meet me at the battle grounds

Someone like that should not be enforcing law, should not have power over anyone.

I'd hope the department fires him, at least he is on administrative leave for now, probably paid since that seems to be the trend.

There are a lot of them out there. White supremacist advocates have done a good job of infiltrating police forces and the military.

It speaks loudly to the level of education from whichever state that oick graduated, presumably high school graduation is a requisite for most forces across the US?

Republicans break with Trump over baseless vote-fraud claims

From retirement, former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, was more direct: “No Republican should be okay with the President’s statements just now. Unacceptable. Period.”

Maryland GOP Gov. Larry Hogan, a potential 2024 presidential hopeful who has often criticized Trump, said unequivocally: “There is no defense for the President’s comments tonight undermining our Democratic process. America is counting the votes, and we must respect the results as we always have before.”

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, did not address Trump’s remarks directly, but sought to provide a reassuring note. Counting votes is often “long” and “frustrating,” Romney said.

If any irregularities are alleged, “they will be investigated and ultimately resolved in the courts,″ Romney tweeted. “Have faith in democracy, our Constitution and the American people.”

OK, Paulry - any comments on that?
