What is it with this McCrae Dowless guy?[edit]

This is the third time he's tried to rig an election in the past four years! — Unsigned, by: Thefantodayhtml5 / talk / contribs

Stephen King[edit]

Will add [1]. Anna Livia (talk) 13:48, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Here it comes[edit]

The clash in Washington - [2] (and probably elsewhere by now).

The bill letting the Arizona legislature change their election results[edit]

What in the goddamn fuck? Is that even legal? If so, why, and how could anyone justify that? Fuck me dead. A S E L A ཊལྐ 18:04, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

I wouldn't worry about it; Dems now control most of Arizona's state govt. at this point, this bill won't go very far methinks. If anything, I think it's good that after joining tRump in pissing on John McCain's grave and censuring his wife and their governor, this will be the final nail in the coffin for Arizona's GOP chapter. --Goatspeed.

I don’t kno much about Arizona but what mostly concerns me is, could any/every other state with a GOP government also do this?? A S E L A ཊལྐ 18:46, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Probably, this new precedent set by the AZ Reps is quite disturbing (especially given the fears of gerrymandering to keep Texas reliably red as much as possible by disenfranchising hispanics, Austiners and blacks for example), but in places like Georgia and Michigan it would also just give the Dems ammunition to use against them methinks. --Goatspeed.

Ducey would likely veto such a measure anyways. There are worse republicans than him-Hastur! (talk) 18:53, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
I hear they even censured Ducey for not being right-wing enough. --Goatspeed. How's my editingCircularREmail2.gifasoningPrototype lab 19:04, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Ducey and John McCain's widow. And Jon Kyl, too. Very curious to see how the next elections play out. Particularly the primaries-Hastur! (talk) 19:06, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
It's essentially now guaranteed for the dems, thanks to the Arizona GOP's infighting and self-immolating censurings. And since it seems Ducey won't run against the recently elected Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) in the midterms, I don't see Kelly losing either, especially thanks to shit like this bill he can use against the Reps. --Goatspeed.

Sidney "Kraken" Powell tries to get the defamation suit against her thrown out[edit]

Sounds like she's taking a page right out of Tucker Carlson's book here. Honestly wouldn't be too surprised if this works for her;Hope it doesn't though. PhoxyDude (talk) 00:51, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Her defense boils down to - "I was lying and everyone knew I was lying". Ace://about blank 01:21, 24 March 2021 (UTC)
"But me" Thats a key part of the defense, to get around the actual malice clause in defamation. Revolverman (talk) 20:23, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
