    "Numerous irregularities," "concerted frauduent activities related to absentee mail ballots" and possible "criminal behavior." Two North Carolina Republicans thought these tactics would give them victories in the midterms. They should have thought of a better plan.

    The Republican holds an unofficial 900-vote lead -- but as many as 2,000 absentee ballots may have been destroyed and I'm guessing every one of those votes was for the Democrat.

    More than 1,000 ballots may have been destroyed in tightly contested North Carolina Congressional race, DA says

    Lutz, a Democrat, resigned because "things have gotten way out of hand," referring to the investigation into Republican voter fraud. North Carolina has until December 21 to call for a new Congressional election if it is deemed necessary. It's funny, though -- The President has not said a single word about "crooked Republicans."

    North Carolina, meet Mississippi. Mississippi, meet North Carolina. Among the seven arrested are a school board member, a former fire chief and a former police chief.

    On November 28 -- Go look! -- I posted a story about a Republican Congressmen, a.k.a. Sore Loser, who lost a close race in Maine and then asked a judge to rule ranked-choice voting unconstitutional and call for a new election. Today a judge rejected the Sore Loser's unconstitutional attempt to void the election.

    This headline mentions "losers." Those losers are Republicans. GOP-led legislatures in Wisconsin and Michigan have quickly enacted legislation to weaken the power of incoming Democratic officials and to limit the early voting which usually favors Democrats. Republicans in Arizona, California and Georgia made false accusations of voter fraud. Republican losers used to accept losing. Now they're out for revenge. As one former strategist put it, "Traditional politics has been replaced by holy war."

    In Michigan, Wisconsin and elsewhere, losers seek to undermine election results

    In 2000 in Florida, the outcome of the November 7 Presidential election was not decided until December 12. In 2018 in North Carolina, amid allegations of the mishandling and/or destruction of absentee ballots, the outcome of this November 6 Congressional election still isn't decided -- and may not be decided until February.

    This year, voters in Maine ranked the candidates by preference. This "ranked choice" voting gave a Democrat the victory in the 2nd Congressional District. Naturally his Republican opponent filed a laswuit alleging the voting method was unconstitutional. Of course if the Republican had won, he would have offered high praise for ranked-choice voting. Today the Governor finally certified the election result -- and next to his signature wrote "stolen election." Of course if the Republican had won, the Governor would have offered high praise for ranked-choice voting. The Democrat won the election, Governor. He did not "steal" it. Republicans are such sore losers.

    Republicans have not won a statewide election in California since 2010. Last November, Republicans lost eight seats in the state Assembly -- and now, with Brian Maienschein re-registering as a Democrat, they've lost another seat. They now hold 19 seats; Democrats hold 61. Maienschein represents a San Diego-area district that used to be represented by Nathan Fletcher, who left the Republican party in 2012 and became an independent.
