Last year the Georgia Supreme Court ruled that gives standing to voters and candidates. If you remember, judges used standing to dismiss election lawsuits from President Trump and others. This means that activist groups should be allowed to inspect the votes in Fulton County. Individual injury is no longer considered a reason to dismiss a case:
Justice Peterson of the GA Supreme Court:
“To that end, only plaintiffs with a cognizable injury can bring a suit in
Georgia courts. Unlike federal law, however, that injury need not
always be individualized; sometimes it can be a generalized
grievance shared by community members, especially other
residents, taxpayers, voters, or citizens.”
It is now November 21, 2022, and we now have a federal ruling that gives standing to “recent and future congressional candidates in the state of California. This bodes well for Abe Hamadeh, who is going to court after the final tally finds him to be behind by 551 votes. The intentional voter suppression in Maricopa County would more than make up that small lead. The bottom line is that Maricopa County must do a new heavily monitored election. A hand recount with poll watchers who are able to see everything.
he Ninth Circuit has ruled that Election Integrity Project®California (EIPCa), James Bradley (US Senate Candidate, Co Lead Plaintiff) and recent and future congressional candidates have standing to challenge the constitutionality of California’s election laws, regulations, policies and procedures that have weakened or removed integrity from the election process. Though the Constitution gives authority to state legislators to pass laws to manage elections and process ballots, EIPCa asserts they do not have carte blanche authority to pass laws that diminish the value of lawfully cast ballots.
The decision remanded the lawsuit to the lower court for discovery, which is the next phase of the litigation.”
“This lawsuit is monumental because it is the first to challenge the constitutionality of California’s election laws and procedures, and we are the first to get past the standing issue,” says Mariah Gondeiro, the lead attorney who works for Advocates for Faith and Freedom. “If we win, California will be required to enforce secure and uniform vote casting and vote counting procedures.”
“For over a decade, Election Integrity Project®California has researched and documented every aspect of California’s election process and identified how these laws transformed the traditional Election Day into a 60-day election season fraught with easy to manipulate procedures,” says Linda Paine, President of EIPCa. “We are now seeing California-style laws in states across the country creating the same problems that have been witnessed and documented by EIPCa-trained observers in California for years.”
Not only does this case rejuvenate the EIPCa’s effort to clean up California’s corrupt election law, but it may give standing to other candidates nationwide who challenge election laws. Lake v Hobbs, for example, is pending appeal in the very same Ninth Circuit. The case was dismissed in August 2022 for a lack of standing because “they have articulated only conjectural allegations of potential injuries that are in any event barred by the Eleventh Amendment, and seek relief that the Court cannot grant under the Purcell principle.”
Fast forward to the 2022 General Election ripe with widespread machine failure and/or manipulation and it seems the Lake v Hobbs case may have been rather significant in ensuring the election was safe and fair. Hopefully the Lake Campaign is given a fair opportunity to make their case, finally, in a court of “law”.
The EIP has also raised grave concern with Nevada’s voter lists as well.
