Last night, I had the pleasure of attending an event hosted at Bare Bones Bar and Grill in Ellicott City, Maryland. The event was hosted by the “Howard County Republican Women Club”.
The main speaker at the event was Lewis Porter, an election integrity expert who has been independently tracking election fraud in the State of Maryland for over 10 years.
Lewis presented the facts. You can check out his work at md20-20watch.com. In Howard County, Maryland, Lewis revealed that the county requested that a private citizen pay upwards of $5,800 to SEE the ballots from the 2020 Election.
This was the result of a state-level FOIA request submitted by the citizen. The person did not want to touch the ballots, open the boxes, nor examine the ballots. They simply requested to physically see the boxes.
The Board wanted $5,800 for that simple act. An act which local boards of elections are legally obligated to allow.
Maryland Election Law Title 1, Subtitle 2 is the ‘Statement of Purpose’ for Maryland elections.
What good are these laws if local officials can carelessly flaunt them with unchecked arrogance?
Luckily, a member of the Howard Country Board of Elections was present during the presentation. After interrupting Lewis several times, she was confronted by audience member William T. Newton over the $700k that Howard County received from the CTCL, the non-profit that Mark Zuckerberg used to funnel over $300 million into the 2020 Election.
This particular Board member justified the money from CTCL citing the ‘pandemic’, and need for mail in ballots.
She then went on to say that every other county in Maryland, and 49 other States had also accepted money from the CTCL. Unfortunately for this woman, that does not make it legal.
Federal law states that all municipalities involved in federal elections must preserve the materials from any election for nearly 2 years.
Per federal law, all ballots, applications, and registrations related to elections for federal offices, such as those for President and Vice President, Members of the U.S. Senate or House of Representatives, must be retained and preserved for 22 months from the date of the election
One has to wonder why Howard County is so interested in keeping these boxes from the eyes of the public.
I must say, it was quite amazing to be sitting across from an individual that in my opinion, contributed to the theft of our Election in 2020. I always assumed they would be serious people.
I was wrong. What I saw was pure arrogance. A disrespect for the rule of law, and above all else, an attitude that the law does not apply to them.
We need serious candidates. Our State, our County, and our Country are being flushed down the drain. Arrogant, self-serving politicians who illegally accept money to rig elections are destroying our chances at fixing this country.
I encourage my audience to have the courage that William T. Newton had last night. Call these people out. Do not sit idly by and allow them to thumb their nose at us as they oversee the demise of our Constitutional Republic.
Stand up, speak out, and LAUNCH LIBERTY!
