@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC Trump’s lies do not justify ignoring legitimate election security concerns. Championing untrustworthy elections —& not knowing the difference between trustworthy & untrustworthy results—undermines democracy. 1/#HandMarkedPaperBallots #RobustManualAudits #TransparentChainOfCustody
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 2/ We never got the election-security protections in the #SAFEAct, which the GOP blocked. We cannot afford to have such a short attention span. axios.com/gop-senator-el…
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 6/ Election-security experts have warned for years that we can’t assume electronic results are correct w/o requiring rigorous manual audits using a reliable paper trail. Most US races are not audited meaningfully if at all. Will we listen to experts or just keep reacting 2 Trump?
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 8/ From my pre-election interview of America’s foremost election auditing expert. Our election system is in dire straits, & the GOP somehow twisted it around to pretend to be victims. nybooks.com/daily/2020/10/…
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 9/ I also worry that they may be using these fraudits to figure out how to cheat. None of this makes Florida elections secure. Many Florida counties use ballot scanners w/ wireless modems, & their audit & recount laws are woefully inadequate as I explain in the article in post 5.
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 10/ Or maybe they want Democrats to falsely claim that Florida elections are secure so that Ds won’t challenge more poll defying losses in 2022. We must stick with the facts & avoid responding to Trump’s lies w/ lies of our own (overstating the security of our elections).
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 11/ Thanks for your consideration. (This is from a memo I created re: Florida & the 2022 election)
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 12/ About Chris Krebs & his misleading “most secure election ever” narrative. The bar was low, & most down ballot races were not audited, much less meaningfully. link.medium.com/QmD5qtk9gkb
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 13/ Professor Halderman, one of America’s foremost election security experts, agrees that Krebs misled the public w/ his “most secure election ever” line. Halderman goes so far as to call it misinformation. threadreaderapp.com/thread/1407484…
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 14/ I don’t go that far bc the election probably was “more” secure, especially as to the presidential race, which was subjected to far more hand counting (audits & recounts) than the down ballot races. It’s just that the bar was very low.
@FrankFigliuzzi1 @NicolleDWallace @DeadlineWH @MSNBC 15/ Note also that almost all ore-election polls predicted Trump would lose. Democrats, by contrast list all 27 House races that were predicted to be tossups, & even some they were expected to win.

Someone asked me if there’s a centralized resource re: the organized coup against public school boards. I know of no such resource. But at least three Religious Right organizations under the Council for National Policy (CNP) umbrella are involved in organizing & training. 1/
They are the Leadership Institute (led by CNPer Morton Blackwell), TPUSA (led by CNPer Charlie Kirk), and the Heritage Foundation (not sure re: Heritage, but I think I saw something recently). 2/
There are also local groups that are likely at most two steps removed from these organizations, such as Moms 4 Liberty (headquartered in Sarasota, Florida) and the Mama Bullies (who call themselves the Iowa Mama Bears & have traveled with Mike Flynn). 3/

Here’s a video of the June 2018 “free Tommy Robinson” rally in London organized by Philadelphia’s Middle East Forum (MEF). Looks like Jan 6 doesn’t it?

MEF may have ties to Steve Bannon whose protégés recently met w/ Tommy Robinson in Berlin. 1/ thesun.co.uk/news/6489748/f…
2/ Note reference to Alexandra Preate too. She and her sister are very involved in PA Republican politics. I’m trying to confirm Carole’s info that MEF has donated to Bannon or to a Bannon entity or project. ImageImage

When people say the 2000 & 2020 elections are dissimilar, they are comparing Trump to Gore. But if u instead compare Trump to Bush, the similarity is striking. Like Team Bush, Team Trump falsely accused Ds of a power grab to try to grab power themselves. 1/tallahassee.com/story/opinion/…
“In the words of Stone, ‘The idea we were putting out there [in 2000] was that this was a left-wing power grab by Gore, the same way Fidel Castro did it in Cuba.’” By @Ionsancho1, 2/3/19 2/
Remember the astroturf Brooks Brothers riot in 2000 (to stop the recount)? Roger Stone says he orchestrated it. 3/ newyorker.com/magazine/2008/…
