One of the many reasons political parties can’t “cross over the aisle” and work together is the rejection by liberals of being contained by the letter of the law.
With the democrat’s inability to pass meaningful legislation for their causes, they turn to the judicial branch of the government to amend statutory laws, via progressive judges who will apply their “logic” which in effect modifies parts of the laws.
With the Senate race between incumbent Republican Lindsey Graham and very heavily funded democratic Jaime Harrison, neck and neck, the left hopes that a judges’ ruling can allow their illegal ballot harvesters, who sign the envelopes for the voter, not matching the voters signature, disqualifying the ballot, to not be disqualified helping give Harrison the victory.
Even though the South Carolina legislature added the extra fraud safeguard of checking for matching signatures, a federal judge in South Carolina ruled Tuesday that local election authorities cannot discard absentee ballots whose signatures do not match those on file after all.
U.S. District Judge Richard Mark Gergel, an appointee of President Barack Obama, said that the signature authorization procedures being used by local authorities were “subjective.”
The judge added that matching the signatures was a significant “burden” on the right to vote, the Washington Post noted.
The State, a Columbia, South Carolina-based newspaper, reported:
The ruling applies only to voter signature mismatches — when election officials determine a voter’s signature on an absentee ballot does not resemble the signature on file. Voters who return absentee ballots without their own signature or without a witness signature (unless they were received by Oct. 7) will still, as of this moment,have their votes discounted and not be afforded an opportunity to correct the deficiency.
While South Carolina law directs poll managers to compare voters’ signatures on the poll list — where they sign their name before voting — with their signature on their identification card, nothing in the state code expressly allows county boards of voter registration and elections to employ any type of signature matching procedure upon receipt of an absentee ballot …
To summarize, a liberal judge thinks it’s a significant “burden” for voters to sign their paperwork the same way twice, and that reasonable voting official can’t determine if the signatures appear to be signed by the same person, thus modifying the law. One judge, less than a week before a federal election, just overrode the state legislature.
Mark my words, thousands of late ballots will come in, many with signature mismatches. The question is, will they be enough to steal the election?
