In The Wall Street Journal, Jacob Gershman reports on a group of attorneys who are working to make America’s elections more secure. He writes:
Phill Kline says he has filed so many legal challenges to the presidential-election results that he can’t keep track.
“It’s hard for me to keep up, honestly,” said Mr. Kline, a former Republican attorney general of Kansas who runs the Amistad Project, an election-focused offshoot of the Thomas More Society, a conservative legal group in Chicago best-known for antiabortion and religious-rights casework.
The Amistad Project is among a small but committed band of pro-Trump plaintiffs that have targeted battleground states and swelled the dockets with lawsuits aimed at invalidating President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. As the Trump campaign pursues a handful of long-shot lawsuits in two states, outside activists have at least a half-dozen cases pending before state and federal benches.
Further on he continues:
Some of the groups say their mission extends beyond next week when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14 and formalizes Mr. Biden’s victory. They haven’t always marched in lockstep with the Trump campaign legal team and are looking for rulings that could affect future elections.
“My endgame is to uncover what happened here and to prevent it from happening again,” Mr. Kline said. “America deserves better elections.”
President Trump has trumpeted some of the groups’ lawsuits that put forward elaborate theories about voting machines skewing results, and his campaign’s legal challenges have echoed the claims of constitutional and statutory violations leveled by the conservative litigants. Some have demanded recounts and audits, while others have asked to eliminate mountains of ballots from the vote totals.
Americans deserve secure elections, with results based on the facts. Improvements in the process, including voter ID laws, the systematic removal of dead voters from rolls, making ballot harvesting illegal, and the purging of registered voters who have moved out of a district can help restore confidence in American elections.
Action Line: Check your voter registration. Is it accurate and up to date? Election 2022 is right around the corner.
