Posted on 07/28/2021 9:06:04 PM PDT by bitt
Department of Justice (DOJ) officials alerted states on July 28 that they’re closely tracking the 2020 election audit taking place in Arizona and proposed audits in several other states.
The new guidance document summarizes the Biden administration’s position on federal law concerning audits, deeming the round of reviews that are either complete, in progress, or being proposed to be “unusual” and “exceedingly rare,” while highlighting that federal law imposes constraints under which counties and states must comply.
The laws cited by the DOJ include the Civil Rights Act of 1960, which mandates the retention of election records for 22 months after a federal election, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which outlines that no person “shall intimidate, threaten, or coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person for voting or attempting to vote, or intimidate, threaten, or coerce, or attempt to intimidate, threaten, or coerce any person for urging or aiding any person to vote or attempt to vote.”
The former makes it the duty of election officials to maintain the security and integrity of the records and safeguard their chain of custody, “so that a complete and uncompromised record of federal elections can be reliably accessed and used in federal law enforcement matters,” the document states.

And federal law says “Democrats win!”.
They could have saved a lot of time space by simply writing: “BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING.”
Its a civil rights issue! Applying any kind of integrity standard to elections disproportionally impacts those who cheat at elections.
They’re bluffing. There is no federal law against audits. It’s not federal business.
DOJ is a very dangerous clown show. They played Trump like a fiddle and now that they have ultimate power, they can now go full swamp.
Boy those insurrectionists were ahead of their time.
DOJ = Department of Jokers
Hmm. Sounds like someone is worried.
How can audits intimidate phantom or dead voters?
Here's some references to quo warranto issues.
Corrections, insights welcome.
OH! AFTER YOU STEAL AN ELECTION... NOW, you want us to obey your law. SCREW YOU!
I see nothing at all offensive to the law in conducting an audit.
Not that the Damnorats give a rats behind about the law OR pushback from the spineless RNC, but voting laws and elections are STATE issues.
I don’t consent much to those who stole the election.
As is the fbi, atf, cdc, nsa, cia, doe, ...... come to think of it the whole damn federal government is a dangerous clown show.
