You know how Arizona and other states have been auditing the 2020 election results? Apparently, the Biden administration has a major problem with attempts to bring transparency to what happened in 2020. Now Biden’s FOJ is trying to scare states that are performing election audits.
The Justice Department issued “guidance” on Wednesday warning states performing audits intended to reveal the true vote counts that they may be running afoul of federal voting laws — the latest attempt by the Biden administration to intimidate states attempting to do the right thing. ABC News reports:
The Justice Department on Wednesday released guidance intended to caution states embarking on so-called post-election ‘audits’ of vote counts for the 2020 presidential election that they must not run afoul of federal voting laws.
The guidance, previously previewed last month by Attorney General Merrick Garland in his policy address on voting rights, outlines federal statutes that the department says elections officials must adhere to during such “audits,” such as preserving all federal elections materials and making sure they’re not tampered with.
“This document sets down a marker that says the Justice Department is concerned about this, and we will be following this closely,” a DOJ official told reporters on a media conference call Wednesday.
The guidance echoes a warning sent by the department back in May to the Republican-run audit in Arizona, warning officials there that all election records must be preserved and expressing concern about the state handing over election materials to the private contractor group Cyber Ninjas.
The aforementioned letter related to Arizona succeeded in scaring contractors away from visiting homes to verify that the people in the legitimately cast their ballots, one of the primary goals of auditors.
The DOJ “guidance” makes it clear that the Biden administration believes that Joe Biden and his allies control elections and how they are reviewed — not individual states. In 2022, we need to send a clear message that they are wrong. And in 2024 it’s time to get rid of Joe Biden once and for all.
