From the left-and-right, there are voices that have been raised about the double obvious standards. “It is good to be a Democrat,” quips right-of-center rising and ‘top 5’ talk radio star Chris Plante. “If not for double standards, the left would have no standards at all.”
If that sounds like a cheap shot, then it is one that leftist attorney turned award-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald has similarly alleged. Greenwald uses different words and is focused on specific topics, such as election integrity.
Greenwald further observed that what even poorer countries can do well, the 2020 U.S. election did embarrassingly poorly.
What could have been underscored is that those voting “irregularities” happened to occur in the states where the 2020 presidential election was “decided.”
With that brief backdrop is the following by Catherine Mortensen, Vice President of Communications at Americans for Limited Government, used with permission, from their Daily Torch.
“Shoe is on the other foot for New York Democrat who claims election fraud”
The shoe is on the other foot for a New York Democrat who refused to concede a close congressional race for more than three months, claiming “systemic violations of state and federal election law.”
Incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi this week finally conceded the race, but only after the State Supreme Court certified the election in favor of Republican challenger Claudia Tenney.
Tenney had a slim margin of just 109 votes. Brindisi alleged “countless errors and discrepancies” in the initial count made the results unreliable and had considered appealing the certification or possibly contesting the results directly to the House.
The only way Speaker Pelosi could have blocked Tenney from taking office would have been to validate the same theory Trump used to contest the presidential race – which Pelosi deemed as insurrection. Meanwhile Democrats had taken to Twitter demanding a hand recount because they think the voting machines were rigged.
According to Syracuse.com, Brindisi, a Utica Democrat, had been pursuing a legal appeal of a state Supreme Court ruling. Brindisi said in a statement that it was time to move on from the election and focus on uniting the nation and building a better community.
But he said he has deep concerns about a series of errors and other problems that surfaced as election officials in eight counties counted absentee and affidavit ballots following the Nov. 3 election.
“My one disappointment is that the court did not see fit to grant us a recount,” Brindisi said. “Sadly, we may never know how many legal voters were turned away at the polls or ballots not counted due to the ineptitude of the boards of election, especially in Oneida County.”
Among the errors uncovered during court proceedings over the past three months was Oneida County’s failure to process more than 2,400 applications from voters who properly registered via the Department of Motor Vehicles but were prevented from voting on Election Day.
“My hope is some authority steps in and investigates the massive disenfranchisement of voters that took place during this election,” Brindisi said.
Today, I congratulated Claudia Tenney on a hard-fought race. It has been the honor of a lifetime serving this community. Read my full statement below: pic.twitter.com/9bdPRF6QsL

Election integrity, including fair and constitutional redistricting, is critical to the preservation of freedom and rights. https://t.co/ZjCsBTl826

It is worth recalling that Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA-D) and other lawmakers in 2019 raised concerns about election machines and voting systems in 2019.
