Obama Judges Can’t Save Dem Losers

Rewriting election statutes doesn’t change the math.

Obama-appointed federal judges have brazenly rewritten election statutes to favor Democrats challenging the outcomes of races in Florida and Georgia. In both states, however, the apparent losers haven’t benefited from arbitrary changes these partisan jurists made in the laws by which election officials are legally bound. Thursday, for example, an Obama appointee changed the rules governing how mail-in ballots with signature mismatches must be handled in Florida ?just hours before the legally-mandated recount deadline. In Georgia, two Obama appointees changed the rules regarding how to count incomplete absentee ballots, provisional ballots, and even delayed certification dates. None of it worked.

The Florida ruling was handed down by U.S. District Judge Mark Walker, who was nominated by Obama in 2012. Walker is a happy partisan who salts his rulings with sarcastic editorial allusions to Governor Scott’s administration and whose wife has made campaign contributions to the governor’s Democratic opponent in the Florida Senate race, Democrat Bill Nelson. His decision begins with a cheesy football analogy and ends up giving voters until Saturday to figure out how to sign their names in a way that resembles the signature on their registration paperwork. Walker has been involved in a long running gun battle with Governor Scott for years over voting issues. The Tallahassee Democrat reports:

Walker?has a history of ruling against Scott administration policies and procedures. He ordered Scott to extend voter registration deadlines after Hurricane Matthew in 2016 over Scott’s objections, and in 2018 he declared unconstitutional the Florida Cabinet’s right to vote process for felons.

It goes without saying that the lead Democratic pettifogger, Marc Elias, was happy with Judge Walker’s Thursday morning ruling. Elias tweeted, “Big victory in our Florida signature mismatch lawsuit! Federal court extends deadline for voters to ‘cure?their rejected ballots until Saturday at 5pm. Per Court: ‘Disenfranchisement of approximately 5,000 voters based on signature mismatch is a substantial burden.’” Likewise, in Georgia, the Stacey Abrams campaign was delighted with the decision of Obama appointee Steve Jones, who ruled late Wednesday that the state must make sure that each county’s vote tally includes absentee ballots with missing or incorrect birth dates. The Abrams campaign gloated:

Now, the courts are doing what Brian Kemp’s Secretary of State office refused to ?upholding and protecting Georgia’s rights and underlining the need for free and fair elections in a state that has suffered from an acute assault on voting rights engineered by none other than Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

U.S. District Judge Steve Jones was nominated by Barack Obama in 2011. His temperament is a good deal less flamboyant than Mark Walker’s but he is a reliable ally of the Democrats. His Wednesday evening decision came on the heels of another Abrams-friendly ruling from yet another Obama appointee, U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg. Her ruling was the result of a suit filed before the election by Common Cause, which accused the former secretary of state of all manner of misdeeds, including “acting recklessly?when the Georgia voter registration database was allegedly found to be vulnerable to attacks. Totenberg also ordered the Peach State to delay its certification date and “protect?all provisional ballots:

U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg ordered the secretary of state’s office to establish and publicize a hotline or website where voters can check whether their provisional ballots were counted and, if not, the reason why.?For counties with 100 or more provisional ballots, she ordered the secretary of state’s office to review, or have county election officials review, the eligibility of voters who had to cast a provisional ballot because of registration issues.
