Bogus Electoral Declarations By Bogus Electors In Multiple States

It appears from what's been reported that there may be a mastermind behind the fake electoral documents that were signed by multiple bogus electors and were subsequently sent to the National Archives who then notified authorities. In the case in Michigan, the fake electors were videotaped attempting to enter the building where the actual electors were certifying the vote. These same "electors" were stopped at the door by a police captain who denied them entry even though they claimed to be "electors." 
It appears that some or all of these cases in the affected states will be investigated by attorneys from the US government and potential penalties for the perps could involve years in prison. It's anticipated that as the investigation proceeds and the "electors" who signed the forgeries are likely to see the light in the face of possible prison terms and identify the leadership behind the plot.

Bogus Electoral Declarations By Bogus Electors In Multiple States

That's certainly never happened...... OH wait, you mean to tell me that DID happen?  What a shocker that is.  wink

The term of political art for this practice when used in nursing homes is “granny harvesting.” The confused or mentally disabled residents need only sign their names to the ballots, and others will fill in the rest. As illegal, outrageous, and damaging to democracy as this scam may be, the use of mail-in ballots will be a far more humane and efficient way to steal the election than transporting busloads of enfeebled and confused senior citizens from nursing homes to polling places and escorting them into the voting booth to make sure they vote the right way. It also eliminates the need to abandon the occasional old-timer who won’t play ball. After all, as I can tell you from personal experience, an abandoned, desperate, and sobbing white-haired granny in a wheelchair is a bad look for the Party of Compassion.
Lol!
There's NO evidence that anything like this happened in the 2020 election and no evidence that it occurred elsewhere other than a suspicion from the author who bases his story on his recollections of something he says happened back in the '70s and some sort of supposed issue related to prison inmates in one place in 2008. 
Yet another old and tired attempt at deflection from Richie...

Democrats like Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer now can't get their way and so they want to eliminate it altogether.

This IS the way banana republics operate worldwide.  If you can't get done what you want done through the political door, just remove the political door.
No they don't want to eliminate altogether.  They'll do either a carve-out or a talking filibuster as alternatives. Of course, we won't hear a peep from Richie when the Republicans do the same when the party of obstruction does it at their convenience...

Dave,
The reality is many of the cons don't like mixing the words "Democracy" with "Republic." I recall, in Utah for instance, there was a group of 'em protesting the word when used in conjunction with a "Republic".  I say, "was" because I don't know if they're still around, given the way covid's been taking 'em out over there since a lot of 'em don't believe in that, either...

And I recall a nurse testifying that the covid vaccine magnetized her and she placed magnets on her neck to prove it and they fell off of her neck.
