Are any of those fraudulent electors running for Congress in Nov

If so and they were convicted wouldn't that disqualify them from holding office if they were elected?

4. Convicted of forgery

Michigan state attorney General Nesbitt seems to think they may have violated several state and federal laws and has referred it to the DOJ ( per MSNBC Morning Joe's Mica).

13. One cannot run for a Senate seat if they have been convicted of a felony?

The reason why I am asking is I wonder what the process is if he is convicted before or after the election. Would the Governor of the state appoint someone if he was convicted after the Nov election. All speculative at this point, they would have to be convicted.

15. Correct (in AZ) unless their rights were restored

https://recorder.maricopa.gov/elections/restorationofvotingrights.aspx

Under Arizona law, a person who has been convicted of a felony offense has their civil rights suspended. Those rights include the right to vote or to seek and hold public office, the right to serve on a jury and the right to possess a gun or firearm, among other rights, A.R.S. § 13-904. The Recorder’s Office provides the following voter registration information which is subject to change. After a felony conviction, a person may have their right to vote restored.

Possible questions: does this apply if it's a federal felony conviction.

Holding Federal Offices. The Constitution does not prohibit felons from holding elected federal offices. U.S. Constitution Article I, Sections 1,2, Article II, Section 1, Article VI. However, the impeachment clause provides removal of all civil officers of the U.S. on impeachment for and conviction of, treason, bribery, or "other high crimes and misdemeanors". U.S. Constitution Article II, Section 4. Disqualification to hold any federal office may follow as a result of a federal conviction. U.S. Constitutional Article I, Section 3.

16. OK so what happens if he is convicted right before the election

Would his name be taken off the ballet. How about after the election does the Governor then make a request until there is a new special election. I don't know which scenario to root for.

18. Election law is outside my legal experience, but....

Again, would depend on whether it's a federal or state conviction. No way he would be convicted before the election....there's not enough time...so if elected he'd be allowed to assume office. Consider that TX AG Ken Paxton has been under indictment for over 5 years, not removed from office.

There's really not an easy answer, and things could get very complex. Only *simple* way to remove him would be thru impeachment, and we've seen how that plays out ala Trump. We've moved away from doing the honorable, ethical, & moral thing in this country.

10. Liz Cheney's home-state rival has links to Oath Keepers charged with planning Jan. 6 insurrection




One of Rep. Liz Cheney's biggest political rivals is a member of the right-wing Oath Keepers group whose co-founder was recently indic

The Wyoming Republican is facing a challenge from within her own party after voting last year to impeach Donald Trump, and Frank Eathorne -- who was revealed last year as a member of the Oath Keepers militia group -- is leading the charge as the sitting chairman of Cheney's home state GOP, reported The Daily Beast.

“It’s troubling to see leaders in institutions that should be engaging in the democratic process not only condone paramilitaries, but officially join them,” said Lindsay Schubiner, program director at the nonprofit Western States Center, which tracks far-right extremism.

Eathorne has led the charge to unseat Cheney by appearing frequently on conservative media to denounce her, and he backed the February 2021 effort to formally censure her and presided over the vote to no longer recognize her as a member of the Republican Party.

14. I remember watching this back in December 2020

It was fascinating. Of course, it's weird to watch it knowing what was going to happen in a few weeks.
