I hate to bombard you with emails, but I just got sent this and it is very important.
As you are aware, the Trump team is claiming that in Michigan a number of townships and precincts voted at rates that exceed 100% of voters present.
The guys over at Powerline Blog have examined the affidavit submitted in Lin Wood’s case. It is an affidavit from a security expert highlighting the data. Long story short, the cybersecurity expert notes it is highly improbable to have 100% of voters turning out in precincts and highly improbably to have votes in excess of 100% of registered voters in Michigan.
There’s just one problem. They used townships in Minnesota, not Michigan. They got the information confused. They got it wrong.
This is a catastrophic error, the kind of thing that causes a legal position to crash and burn. Trump’s lawyers are fighting an uphill battle, to put it mildly, and confusing Michigan with Minnesota will at best make the hill steeper. Credibility once lost is hard to regain. Possibly Trump’s lawyers have already discovered this appalling error, and have undertaken to correct it. But the Ramsland Affidavit was filed in Georgia just yesterday.
A postscript: has Mr. Ramsland inadvertently stumbled across evidence of voter fraud in Minnesota? I seriously doubt it. The venues in question are all in red Greater Minnesota, not in the blue urban areas where voter fraud is common.
