Trump-Appointed Judge Rejects Lin Wood's 'Creative' Election Lawsuit in Georgia

Source: Law and Crime

A federal judge appointed by President Donald Trump rejected what he called a “creative” lawsuit that Georgia’s assistant attorney general warned would cause the Peach State’s largest disenfranchisement since the Jim Crow era.

“There is no doubt that the right to vote, even an individual’s right to vote is sacrosanct,” U.S. District Judge Steven Grimberg said, adding that this “doesn’t mean that individual voters have the right to dictate” the manner in which that vote is counted.

Georgia’s assistant attorney general Russell Willard called the lawsuit an effort to roll back the clock on voting rights in the state.

“The election is over, and rather than accept that his candidate has lost, plaintiff seeks the largest disenfranchisement in Georgia since the abolition of the poll tax and the vestiges of Jim Crow,” Willard thundered.

10. My Qanon co-worker assures me the trap has yet to be sprung

They are waiting for the election results to be certified before they drop the bomb so as to catch all the people who are in on the fraud conspiracy. Naturally he started going off on a rant about Hugo Chavez rigged the election(despite dying 7 years ago), and the Soros funded Dominion voting machine software.

So I asked him if that included Republican SoS and the Trump appointed judge. He said everyone involved is going down. Wow, looks like the deep state goes deeper than anyone could have ever imagined.

He owes me a dollar on Jan 20 when Biden takes the keys to the WH.

15. Pretty sure I already am

In the dichotomous batshit crazy world of Qanon everyone is either a "Patriot" (AKA Trump supporter), or "traitor".

20. The kraken already came and nobody really noticed

Q predicted the sky was going to fall on November 3, 2017 and much to the chagrin of the dirt eaters, nothing notable happened that day.

I asked my soft-headed co-worker why HRC hasn’t been arrested yet as he reported numerous times it was only a month away. He said there is a picture of her wearing an ankle bracelet.



Most of this horseshit is so stupid it’s funny, but then you realize there’s millions who no-shit believe this nonsense and it tends to destroy any notion of a collective intelligence in the US.

2. Dare we hope... what if even right-leaning pro-big money justices believe in the rule of law?

maybe even have some integrity? What if the judicial branch is the fire wall that keeps overt facism from taking hold? Wow! Reason to be hopeful anyway....

I don't dare think such thoughts. It's times like these when hope feels like the enemy. Sick, I know.

19. No. They just don't want to be beholden to Trump

The judges have lifetime appointments. They don't need Trump anymore, and probably are relieved that he lost.
