Tag: election integrity

This week on Hubwonk, host Joe Selvaggi talks with Ilya Somin, author and George Mason Law professor, about the newly released report on all court challenges to the 2020 presidential election entitled, Lost, Not Stolen, exploring what its authors intended to achieve, what its readers can learn from its findings, and whether such intra-party scrutiny can serve to reassure voters that their concerns about election integrity have had their day in court.

Will our elections ever be fair and secure? That’s a question that is frequently debated, and both the Left and Right insist that the other side is trying to sabotage election outcomes. Call me biased, but I’m convinced that the Left is determined to control election results, regardless of changes that have been made to […]

What’s really driving absentee ballot mania that seems to have gotten hold of some blue states? Heretofore, my thinking on the subject has been that the purpose behind the dramatically expanded use of absentee ballots in the 2020 presidential election was only to influence the election outcome of the candidates seeking election or re-election to […]

What Democrats Don’t Want You to Know About France’s Election

 

Being in France the past week, I’ve paid more attention than usual to their presidential election, which occurs today. Not just the closing messages or the strategies and tactics employed in the final debate last Tuesday, although I give an edge to Macron. He was aggressive in their final debate and much is being made in the final days of LePen’s party reimbursing a sanctioned Russian defense contractor about $12 million in contributions. Putin is very much an issue here in France.

In one sense, it really doesn’t matter to most Americans who wins the election. French tour guides I’ve heard from are mostly disappointed that the election is a replay of five years ago, when Emmanuel Macron, the young “fresh face” leading the new “En Marche!” Party, swept into the Elysee Palace by a two-to-one margin over the “National Front” party’s candidate, Marine LePen.

Once upon a time, people who ran for elective office were in some sense (strict or loose, I’ll let you decide) representatives of the people who elected them. Once the integrity of the electoral process was breached however, and it was breached well before the 2020 election, a shift in the nature of things occurred. […]

Podcasting is huge and growing, even more so than written blogs like this one. In many cases, blogs and podcasts go hand in hand. Prominent radio talkers like Hugh Hewitt and Chris Stigall (both friends) use podcasts to augment their live shows. Our cell phones – excuse me, personal digital assistants (PDAs) – and apps […]

It’s Not Just the Democrats’ HR 1 or HR 4, the So-Called “Corrupt Politicians Act.” Other “Reforms” are Afoot. Canada’s federal election on Monday featured what they call a “first past the post” election – whoever gets the most votes in a “riding” (what they call parliamentary districts) wins the election, even if no one […]

We’re busy and have a lot going on at the moment, like most working Americans, so I wanted to catch up on the news. When I turned on the TV today for a few minutes, the hearing on January 6th – the Insurrection, was underway. After a short time, I had to turn it off.  […]

Joe Selvaggi talks with Harvard Business School Professor Vincent Pons about his recently released NBER paper on the effects of strict voter ID laws on voter behavior and fraud across the United States over 10 years, examining the results of the 1.6 billion observation dataset by age, race, gender, and party affiliation.

The Biden/Harris/WhomeverIsReallyRunningThings Administration is demanding that courts (unelected judges) determine the fine details of rules for voting. The lawsuit filed by the United States Department of Justice against Georgia over recent revisions the Georgia legislature made to Georgia voting laws is, despite the media histrionics, over some pretty small details of how elections should be […]

CEOs Whiff on Election Integrity

 

Members of the Public Policy Committee of Greater Phoenix Leadership recently endorsed an editorial titled “Disenfranchising Voters is Not Election Reform.”

“As an organization of CEOs at the helm of hundreds of thousands of employees in Arizona,” they felt it their public duty to warn of efforts in the legislature not only “undermining our carefully crafted voting system” but also “actually attempting to suppress the votes of Arizonans.”

They were especially incensed by the “stringent new identification requirements for those voting by mail” and the “purge of voters from the Early Voting List.” They grouped these bills with other less important measures, then claimed that all of them had “one thing in common: making it more difficult for Arizonans to vote.”
