New Bill Would Allow Legislature to Overturn Election Results

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
2002: US President George W. Bush in his State of the Union address describes “regimes that sponsor terror” an “Axis of Evil”, which includes Iraq, Iran and North Korea

Arizona Rep. John Fillmore (R) is pushing a bill that would overhaul state law to give legislators the ability to overturn the results of a primary or general election.

HB 2596 would require the legislature to hold a special session after an election to review and “accept or reject the election results.”

The proposal would also significantly change the way Arizonans vote by eliminating most early and absentee voting and requiring people to vote in their home precincts rather than at vote centers set up around the state.

“We should have voting in my opinion in person, one day, on paper, with no electronic means and hand counting that day. We need to get back to 1958-style voting,” Fillmore said.

The state representative has reportedly been highly skeptical of the audits and findings regarding the 2020 election.

“I don’t care what the press says. I don’t trust ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox or anybody out there. Everybody’s lying to me and I feel like I have a couple hundred ex-wives hanging around me,” Fillmore said.

“This is not a President Biden thing. This is not a the other red-headed guy thing.”

But former Arizona state lawmaker Rep. Ruben Gallego (D) warned against implementing Fillmore’s bill.

“I know the Arizona Legislature, I served in the Arizona Legislature. Let me tell you if the Republicans control the Arizona Legislature and they don’t like an election outcome they will throw it out, democracy be damned,” Gallego tweeted.

  1. What is funny in all of this, is the fact if the Cheater Criminal Democrat Party Mob Congress members passes their voting right act in Congress, they will guarantee that they will stay full political power for “centuries to come here in America”!!!! Food for thought!!!!! What is “good for the goose is good for the gander”???????????

  2. Gerald Ladd says:

    I agree. One day in person.

  3. What we have now, voting wise, is a monumental mess. Fillmore’s bill will get us back on track to honest elections.

  4. Robert Coffey says:

    When my wife and I first moved to Arizona 8 years ago. Went to DMV to get registered for AZ driver license and car plate. They offered us to register for mail in voting. We did for our first election. Then I started to analize the route of my vote. How many poeple handle the ballot before it it counted. And also how do I know if my vote was counted at all. Before last election we voted early. During that period. Then I got to thinking how many people are still handling my vote before it’s counted. So I agree “We should have voting in my opinion in person, one day, on paper, with no electronic means and hand counting that day. We need to get back to 1958-style voting,” Fillmore said. And also there should be a Representative from both Rep. and Dem. parties at the polling place at all times.

  5. Coolmeadow Kid says:

    I agree with the non-electronic voting. But I’d have to see more details about allowing a legislature to overturn election results. It would have to be specified that challenges would have to be made within X number of days (as in single digit number of days) and expedited within a week by the courts. Otherwise, if not written precisely, the majority of that legislature could do what they wanted and there would be no recourse at all, regardless of what the real legal outcome should have been.

  6. This is unacceptable and unamerican

  7. The easier it is to vote, the easier it is to have voter fraud. If it’s not important enough for a person to vote IN-PERSON, or via a lawful absentee ballot (think deployed service personell), then they have no right to vote in a process designed to be corrupted.

  8. Carole R says:

    A totally bad idea.

  9. CharlieSeattle says:

    Great plan!

  10. Barbara Charis says:

    Makes sense! It would ensure the integrity of the election. Those who oppose it… are those who don’t care about honest elections.
