Former Congressman Issa Sues California Over Mail-In Ballots

Source: Courthouse News

May 21, 2020 NICK CAHILL

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CN) - Joining the chorus of Republicans condemning mail balloting ahead of the November election, former Congressman Darrell Issa on Thursday sued to halt California Governor Gavin Newsom's order requiring all registered voters receive absentee ballots.

Issa claims the Democratic governor's Covid-19 safeguard to deter crowding at voting sites exposes local elections -including the congressional district he's hoping to win-to post-election lawsuits. In a federal lawsuit filed in the Eastern District of California, Issa casts the executive order as an unconstitutional maneuver that rips local control from county election officials.

"Governor Newsom's vote-by-mail mandate is unconstitutional and may cause the votes of countless voters to be thrown out or not counted," said Tom Fitton, president of the conservative group Judicial Watch that filed on behalf of Issa. "California law prohibits blindly mailing out ballots to every registered voter in the state. This scheme raises the risk of Election Day chaos as well as voter fraud."

The lawsuit comes two weeks after Newsom issued an emergency declaration and ordered the state's 58 counties to send vote-by-mail ballots to all registered voters for the presidential election.

Issa, pretending the Orange Catastrophe is a great comedian. Clearly the guy thinks he's on a roll, and is going in for the kill.

1. If they keep up there won't be absentee balloting...

that is the goal. Mail in ballots are no different. Now we see Judicial Jackass involved.

13. If they keep it up there won't be a GOP. We will go through snow, fire, or COVFEFE-19 to purge them

18. They know defeat is imminent

Plan A is suppress the vote.

Plan B is discredit the process.

Plan C is interfere directly via proxies (call out loonies to “guard polls from fraud”)

Plan D is when they lose, call on loonies to protect them from “a coup”, Then directly incite violence and stay in office to “restore order”.

7. He's running to take over that other Repug Duncan Hunter seat ...

He'll probably get it.
East San Diego County is heavy with Covidiots.
They voted in Hunter knowing he had already been indicted.
So they will have no problem voting for someone who doesn't
live in that district (can't remember the name for a representative
doing that), as long as they have an (R) next to their name.

5. Don't these thugs ever come up for air???

I wonder what's going on influence-wise with the overpaid voting machine vendors and lobbyists - wouldn't be surprised if they're somehow tied in behind the scenes with judicial watch and these frivolous lawsuits, along with all the other rethuglicans & oligarchs

24. We're up to, what, 13 counties

sending ballots automatically to all registered voters.

Is Issa's polling that bad? Is he trying to set up excuses for when he loses narrowly?

9. We have been doing absentee ballots for quite some time now, and it has been increasing every

year.

Issa is an attention getting jerk.

10. voting criteria is set up by the state and Issa is wating his time and money

if a state wants all mail in ballots, it certainly can do that. Takes longer to count

11. Where they scream 'foul' they see opportunity

to divert ballots, sue to invalidate, force recounts, challenge electors.

This is not about mail-in ballots. This is about keeping up the narrative and the pressure that Trump is about to be kicked out of office which they will attempt to litigate and reverse through the courts. It's like a full-court press in a political election sense.

12. What happened to Issa?

Did he run out of cars to steal, warehouses to set fire to? What a great republican. Join the other crooks and liars on the way to re-election. Surely there are much better candidates than Issa in Cali??

15. Anything to suppress votes. That is the GOP mantra since late 1980. 40 years of voter suppression.

"Now many of our Christians have what I call the goo-goo syndrome — good government. They want everybody to vote. I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people, they never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down."

16. I find it ironic that

the GOP and conservatives complain of Votes not being counted or thrown away.
Isn't that their Mode of Operation?

20. What a campaign ad!

The GOP is doing everything they can to reduce voting. Why is that?

The GOP is doing everything they can to to purge voter rolls. Why is that?

The GOP is doing everything they can to challenge YOUR identity, at the polls. Why is that?

The GOP is doing everything they can to reduce the number of voting locations. Why is that?

The GOP is doing everything they can to limit access to voting locations. Why is that?

The GOP is doing everything they can to reduce the hours voters have access to voting. Why is that?

The GOP is doing everything they can to make voting by mail illegal. Why is that?

Republicans DO NOT WANT YOU TO VOTE. When YOU vote, THEY lose.
