Larry Elder Website Claims Recall is Over, Newsom Won, & They Found Voter Fraud - All Before Election Day?

Mod: The big problem is the election hasn't happened yet. Election Day in CA is today.

As Newsom leads California recall polls, Larry Elder pushes baseless fraud claims - A website paid for by Elder's campaign on Monday predicted his defeat and blamed unsubstantiated fraud claims (NBC News link): Republicans in Tuesday's California gubernatorial recall election are already laying the groundwork to argue the election was stolen — even before a single ballot is reported or a victor declared, an increasingly common tactic in conservative circles.

Republican Larry Elder appealed on Monday to his supporters to use an online form to report fraud, which claimed it had "detected fraud" in the "results" of the California recall election "resulting in Governor Gavin Newsom being reinstated as governor."

The only problem: On Monday when the link was live on Elder's campaign site, the election hadn't even happened yet. No results had been released. And Elder was still campaigning to replace Newsom as governor.

“Statistical analyses used to detect fraud in elections held in 3rd-world nations (such as Russia, Venezuela, and Iran) have detected fraud in California resulting in Governor Gavin Newsom being reinstated as governor,” the site reads. "The primary analytical tool used was Benford’s Law and can be readily reproduced."

The site added on Monday afternoon a disclaimer saying it was "Paid For By Larry Elder Ballot Measure Committee Recall Newsom Committee," with major funding from Elder's gubernatorial campaign.

The most recent polls show Newsom is likely to survive the attempt to remove him from office in Tuesday’s recall election. Elder and other Republicans have already started chalking up a potential loss to baseless allegations of voter fraud, following the script written by former President Donald Trump.

“This is really becoming the standard GOP playbook,” said Lee Drutman, a senior fellow at the New America think tank who studies democracy. “This is democracy 101. If you don't have elections that are accepted and decisive, then you don't really have a democracy, because the alternative is violence or authoritarianism.”

Mod: The witless Russian news site Sputnik also jumped the gun (link). Big surprise in that, wot? Rachel Maddow is all over this story.

    4. Elder knows there was fraud probably because he planted some fraud and soon he will uncover evidence and claim fraud. Now, if only we can pin it back on him, then all will be right with the world. Well, not exactly but you know what I mean.

  3. If the Democrats are smart enough to win an election before it even happens, all without leaving any kind of evidence behind, they probably should be in charge of everything, anyway.

  5. First, some blamed the deadly Jan. 6, 2021 attack at the U.S. Capitol on left-wing antifa antagonists, a theory quickly debunked. Then came comparisons of the rioters to peaceful protesters or even tourists.

    Now, allies of former President Donald Trump are calling those charged in the Capitol riot “political prisoners,” a stunning effort to revise the narrative of that deadly day.

    The brazen rhetoric ahead of a rally planned for Saturday at the Capitol is the latest attempt to explain away the horrific assault and obscure what played out for all the world to see: rioters loyal to the then-president storming the building, battling police and trying to stop Congress from certifying the election of Democrat Joe Biden.

    1. The last time I tried to get a metal flag pole through the metal detector at a Federal or state building, much less the capitol, as a tourist...wait, I never tried that. I am pretty sure I knew that is not what a tourist to a government building has in their side bag/purse/daypack/book bag/brief case.

  6. California finally cracks down on bad cops. Bradford hailed SB 586 as “the first of its kind in California.” However, the law enforcement groups remain opposed and advocates of reform are concerned that it requires too many hoops to be as effective as they want.

    The state’s other licensing agencies are often criticized for being too cozy with those they regulate and too lenient. Given the concessions that Bradford had to make to get SB 586 passed, that could happen with POST as well. But at least it’s a start on something that should have happened decades ago.

  11. California Gov. Gavin Newsom poised for victory in recall election as polls swing sharply in his favor

    Experts, recent polling and early ballot return rates indicate California Gov. Gavin Newsom is now on course to easily defeat the Republican-led recall effort.

  12. 'Are we the sheep?': QAnon believers struggle to process Gavin Newsom recall election in California. In the lead-up to the Newsom recall, anons have glommed onto a December 2018 Q post in response to a commenter asking, “Will voter fraud in CA ever be brought to light?” “Watch CA,” Q wrote back. Three years on, some are convinced this means that Newsom will fraudulently win this recall election and, confronted with overwhelming evidence of this alleged fraud, Californians will kick off a national audit that gets Trump back into office.

    1. Larry Elder launched a website claiming voter fraud in the California recall. The election isn't even over

      Larry Elder launched a website Monday alleging voter fraud in the California recall election, even though it won't conclude until Tuesday.

      Californians were voting in a statewide recall election Tuesday that pits Elder, a conservative radio host, against incumbent Governor Gavin Newsom.

      California is one of 19 states that allows recall elections, in which citizens can vote to remove elected officials from office. This is the fourth such recall vote in US history.

      With the election due to end around a day later — with the results possibly taking far longer — on Monday Elder's website alerted visitors to a form called "Fight California Election Fraud!"

  25. Poll shows big majority of Latinos oppose Newsom recall

    https://www.axios.com/california-recall-gavin-newsom-latino-voters-f1487c57-2514-4a96-b7fb-137e700bf8b0.html

    California voters' growing opposition to recalling Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom is driven heavily by Latinos, according to new polling in the closing days of the election.

    The big picture: A Public Policy Institute of California poll released last week found 66% of likely Latino voters saying they won't support the recall and just 27% saying they would — a shift from previous polls that suggested a tight race.

    Hispanics are the largest ethnic group in California, comprising 39% of the state's population and about 28% of registered voters.

    Why it matters: If Latino voters were to abandon Newsom it would serve as a major warning for Democrats trying to flip Texas, hang on in the 2022 midterm elections and reset after Donald Trump's gains among some Latino voters last November. On the other hand, if Latino voters help save Newsom, it may empower advocacy groups who can turn out the vote to make more demands.

    By the numbers: The survey found about 58% of all likely voters, and 52% of white voters, oppose the recall.

    Only 39% of all likely voters surveyed supported removing Newsom from office, and 53% of Californians approve of the way Newsom is handling his job overall.
