Conservative group pushes US attorneys general to ‘join prosecution’
Grassroots political organization pushes attorneys general across the country – including South Carolina attorney general Alain Wilson – to sign a lawsuit which must be filed tomorrow in the Supreme Court of the United States.
Use the hashtag #JoinTheSuit, the group “presents to the fifty state attorneys general a choice – and a formidable opportunity – to protect the natural rights enshrined in the Constitution and the sovereignty of each citizen of the republic”.
The opportunity? A lawsuit which aims to prove the administration of Joe biden may not have been “duly elected through a democratic process that faithfully reflects the will of the people”.
Wait a minute … has not this ship already sailed?
From my point of view, yes. Supporters of the former US president Donald trump had every opportunity to plead their case for electoral fraud following last fall’s contentious ballot… and they failed to do so. Or to put it more precisely, they did not conclusively prove that enough votes were stolen to change the outcome of the election.
Was there smoke? Absoutely. Were there a sufficient number of smoking guns found to support the launch of the results? No.

One of the lawyers who didn’t do his job last fall was Kurt Olsen. A lawyer from Maryland, Olsen pushed Trump to try to get the Supreme Court to overturn the 2020 election results. He has since been held up by Mike Lindell – the general manager of My pillow and a strong supporter of all sorts of theories about voter fraud.
Lindell was supposed to present evidence of voter fraud at a high-profile “cyber symposium” earlier this year, but the event fell short of its anticipated billing. state representative SC Jonathon Hill, a participant in the event, told me that Lindell had not provided any “hard evidence” to support his theories.
According to the New Popular Group, Olsen is filing a lawsuit tomorrow (November 23, 2021) asking the court to “consider certain evidence establishing the existence of substantial widespread fraud in the November 2020 presidential election.”
Massive and widespread fraud?
“Unlike the Texas v. Pennsylvania case, this lawsuit will not focus on the electoral processes of individual states but instead ask the Supreme Court to directly examine the mountains of evidence that have accumulated over the past year. “the group noted on its website. “Given the quality of the evidence to be presented in court and the seriousness of the allegations of electoral irregularity, we believe it would be a dereliction of duty for any attorney general to ignore the trial while others fight on behalf of of their respective constituents. “
The group – which set up a picket line in Wilson’s office last Friday – is asking attorneys general “to honor their oath by joining the next trial.”

Wait, though … shouldn’t Wilson (above) and his colleagues at least have the opportunity to review the file before accessing any “claims?” “
Also … would South Carolina even have standing to participate in such a trial? As of this writing, I have not seen any official records alleging fraud in the 2020 presidential election in Palmetto State. For those of you who matter at home, Trump won South Carolina with 55.1 percent of the vote in relation to 43.4% for Joe biden. And while some Trump supporters have argued the gap should have been wider – Are there any specific allegations of electoral fraud related to the election result here?
If so, I haven’t seen them …
Once again, I supported the Conservatives’ calls to verify the results of the presidential race – but as I noted in the spring “I saw nothing to suggest that there had been fraud (widespread or otherwise) in the primary or general election in the Palmetto state last year, which meant that it would be very difficult for Wilson to get into this trial.
Regardless of the merits or drawbacks of this case, I have repeatedly argued that states must do everything in their power to not only document the validity of their previous elections … but to ensure that fraud is not allowed in future elections.
“Ensuring the integrity of the vote is essential to our representative democracy… and erecting guarantees of identity early on (and ultimately creating / preserving written records) seems the least we can do to protect the sanctity of this. most basic right, ”I wrote in a recent post.
Just last week, in fact, Southern Carolinians saw yet another example of why this is so important …
Stay tuned… as soon as this lawsuit is filed tomorrow, I plan to provide a copy to the Attorney General’s office with a request for comment.
