Even as sanctimonious Democrats in Congress accuse their GOP colleagues of treason and attempted murder for raising legitimate questions of vote fraud in the 2020 election, the Democrats’ top election litigation lawyer is continuing to follow their longtime playbook.
Perkins Coie attorney Marc Elias, notorious for flooding the legal system with complaints to turn election rules and results in Democrats’ favor, was behind the push for mail-in voting that grossly undermined election integrity in the election.
Elias also has the ignominious distinction of having commissioned the Steele Dossier on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
But while his party leaders have become self-righteous about the very idea of disputing elections when the disputed outcome favors them, Elias is continuing to use the same familiar arguments to flip a tightly contested race in upstate New York that Republicans won.
Without evidence, he claims that faulty voting machines resulted in Republican Claudia Tenney’s razor-thin victory over former Rep. Anthony Brindisi, Breitbart reported.
Tenney had been the congresswoman in the conservative district before Brindisi won the seat in the 2018 election.
“In this case, there is reason to believe that voting tabulation machines misread hundreds if not thousands of valid votes as undervotes … and that these tabulation machine errors disproportionately affected Brindisi,” Elias baselessly complained.
He demanded, much as supporters of President Donald Trump did, that the county conduct a manual audit.
In another case, Elias was representing an Iowa Democrat who lost, with the race already certified by the state.
He sought to bypass the courts entirely and have the Democrat-led House—many of whom are his personal clients—seat defeated candidate Rita Hart, who lost by six votes to GOP Rep. Mariannette Miller Meeks.
It was unclear whether top Democrats would call for Elias’s disbarment as they have for the Trump attorneys who dutifully represented their clients’ interest—and those of the American people—in contesting the outcome.
