New Mexico county certifies election results, bowing to court order


Commissioners in New Mexico’s Otero County voted 2 to 1 Friday to comply with a state Supreme Court order and certify primary-election results, reversing an earlier rejection of vote totals over unfounded claims that voting machines were insecure. In an afternoon meeting, Republican County Commissioners Vickie Marquardt and Gerald Matherly voted to certify the results from the state’s June 7 primary over the objections of the third commissioner, Couy Griffin.

Griffin, the founder of Cowboys for Trump, spoke by phone from Washington, where he had been sentenced earlier Friday to 14 days in jail on one count of entering a restricted area during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. In his remarks, Griffin refused to back down from assertions that the machines were not secure or apologize for leading a charge against a normally straightforward procedural vote that caused a week-long uproar.

“My vote to remain a no isn’t based on any evidence, it’s not based on any facts, it’s only based on my gut feeling and my own intuition, and that’s all I need,” Griffin said. On Wednesday, New Mexico’s Supreme Court granted an emergency petition by the secretary of state demanding that the Otero commissioners do their job and approve some 7,300 votes from the primary, where races such as the county’s only state House seat and county sheriff hung in the balance.

The state’s attorney general, Hector Balderas, had said Friday that the commissioners “must comply with the rule of law” or face legal action and potentially be removed from office. “I don’t want to let anybody down, I know there’s a lot of people who want us to stand our ground,” Marquardt said Friday. But, she said, “I don’t think it’s worth us getting removed from our seats to do that.”

It's Today's GOP...she's one of the poster children.  By all means, we should return them to power so they can flush our democracy down the crapper.

This is what happens when ignorant and bigoted GOP judges are involved.  There is no difference between using a ballot box or mailing a ballot.

With all of the evidence of ballot box stuffing, I hope that the other 49 states follow Wisconsin's lead.

With little to no evidence of ballot-box stuffing, but reality has never been a friend to the radical and bigoted right.
