The writer makes an observation that isn’t much discussed in other venues:
- That a number of states (including the key battlegrounds) expanded absentee voting in ways that violated their own state constitutions.
- That, given the chance, SCOTUS will so rule, invalidating many mail-in ballots that have been counted.
California is a prime example. There, the governor modified the absentee ballot process by executive order on the assumption that the Covid-19 emergency gave him the authority to do so. A California state judge has ruled the executive order “an unconstitutional exercise of legislative power” and SCOTUS would likely concur under the plain language of the U.S. Constitution.
Under this line of reasoning, the means and methods of election fraud become almost a subordinate issue, except that mail-in votes became an opportunity for ballot stuffing. When you grasp that unconstitutional means were used to prepare for the fraud, the magnitude of the crime just grows.
