15,000 Nevada Voters Also ‘Voted’ Outside State, Electoral College
Candidates Claim Tyler Durden
Wed, 11/18/2020 – 10:20
new election contest on Tuesday to â€œthrow out fraud and
ensure election integrity,â€ citing a slew of alleged voting
irregularities that include claims of evidence that 15,000
people who voted in Nevada also voted in another state.
The election contest (pdf),
filed in Carson City District Court by Nevada Electoral College
candidates who pledged to President Donald Trump, is contesting the
results of the presidential election in Nevada. It alleges
â€œsubstantial irregularities, improprieties, and fraudâ€ that
occurred in the election, and that Nevada election
officials put in effect an election system that was
â€œhighly susceptible to fraud and abuse.â€
â€œEvidence will show that the nature and scale of that fraud
and abuse renders the purported results of the Nevada election
illegitimate,â€ the lawsuit read.
Former Nevada Attorney General and Trump campaign Nevada
Co-Chair Adam Laxalt said that the lawsuit alleges many mail-in
votes were â€œimproperly cast.â€
â€œWe are presenting today in our formal contest, that
there are north of 15,000 people who voted in Nevada and
another state. We are presenting that people that had
already done a change of address and left the state outside of the
30 day requirement, their ballots were still cast. We are
also presenting dead voters,â€ he told a news conference
He took issue with Clark Countyâ€™s system whereby a complaint
has to be lodged in order for an issue to be investigated regarding
a contested vote.
â€œI will only leave one example: If a person has died, and that
ballot was mailed to someoneâ€™s home, and someone voted that
ballot, who is going to complain about that vote cast? No one,
quite clearly. So the system isnâ€™t investigating these things,â€
Among other alleged voting irregularities raised, the
lawsuit took issue with the reliability of the signature scanning
machine used in Clark County, Laxalt said. He pointed
to how no professional election integrity body has certified the
machine, and how election personnel manually adjusted the factory
settings of the machines to 40 percent of a signature match.
Chair of the American Conservative Union and Trump campaign
representative Matt Schlapp on Tuesday denounced the
widespread unsolicited mail-in ballots across the state.
This, coupled with various changes in Nevada election rules just
before Election Day that allegedly decreased ballot security and
â€œalmostâ€ eliminated signature verification,
have resulted in unprecedented voting irregularities in Clark
County, he said.
The county has seen multiple complaints over voting
irregularities. On Monday, the county tossed
results of a local election after a canvass showed 139
discrepancies in a battleground district.
â€œIn all my years in politics, I have never seen the
types of voter irregularity we have seen in Clark
County,â€ he told a news conference.
â€œThe zeal to push reckless unsolicited mail-in voting resulted
in 50 percent of ballots coming through the mail and a tenfold
increase in mail ballots in Clark County â€¦ Nevada and Clark
County have created this crisis, reckless unsolicited mail in
voting has created this crisis.â€
The Clark County Election Department and the Nevada secretary of
state did not immediately respond to The Epoch Timesâ€™ request for
victory over the 2020 presidential election on Nov. 7 although
the 538 electors of the electoral college have yet to elect the
next president. Trump has disputed Bidenâ€™s claim and his campaign
has launched multiple
legal challenges alleging a variety of voting irregularities
across a number of battleground states.
The Epoch Times wonâ€™t
declare a winner of the 2020 presidential election until all
results are certified and any legal challenges are resolved.
