Court motion seeks to throw out ballots in CD 2 race

Source: AzCentral.com

Republican attorneys have filed a court motion in southern Arizona to halt the counting of some 130 ballots in Congressional District 2, where GOP candidate Martha McSally fights to gain an edge over opponent Rep. Ron Barber, D-Ariz.

The race has remained too close to call as the counties continue to count early and provisional ballots.

A GOP spokesman said the lawsuit is designed to prevent “fraud and ballot tampering.” Barber’s campaign has objected to the court effort, warning it will disenfranchise voters and noting at least one precinct is majority Latino.

Attorneys argued the case in court Tuesday morning and were scheduled to meet again before the judge at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. Presiding Judge Wallace Hoggatt is expected to rule in the afternoon.

4. Talk about Voter Fraud!

"lawsuit is designed to prevent “fraud and ballot tampering.” Barber’s campaign has objected to the court effort, warning it will disenfranchise voters and noting at least one precinct is majority Latino."

Fraud and ballot tampering...uh, HUH.

The FRAUD is that you Pukes and Baggers are trying to strip American citizens of their Right to Vote...and then when they
have voted, you want to make sure that their Voice and Vote, are not heard.

These creeps should be tossed into jail.

5. I've argued that a lot of what is going on in AZ is incompetence, not disenfranchisement

This is disenfranchisement.
