Back to midterm news, apparently Herschel Walker doesn't even live in Georgia...

QuoteHerschel Walker claims Texas home as primary residence

Herschel Walker, the Republican running for a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia, has continued to claim his Tarrant County home as his primary residence — potentially breaking both Texas tax laws and some Georgia rules on establishing residency for the purpose of voting or running for office, according to CNN.

Yeah, technically if they really didn't count the votes from that county the safe Republican victor in that district would lose to the Democrat. I don't know the specific process in each of the States, but there are typically legal machinations a combination of the courts and the State government can use to basically run over these local certifying committees if they become truly recalcitrant.

I looked it up and Cochise is split between Congressional district 6 and 7.  In 6 the Republican is up by 5,000 so it could swing it I guess.  7 is deep blue and the Democrat is winning by a bunch.

I trust you are right that "the system" will straighten things out.  I just don't recall that ever happening before.  I remember there was a crazy chick in Michigan in 2020 who talked about not certifying but she eventually backed down.

Now I've seen it.  Judge orders Cochise County board to certify.  They do.

Well, half of the intransigents appear in court and the same half boycott the certification vote.

As you would expect from these antidemocracy fucks, they were not refusing to certify because they thought that the election they were to certify had any faults.  They were doing it to express their personal opposition to another, Democratic county, certifying its votes.

Hope to see them get at least a few days' worth of jail time and a criminal record that prevents them from ever holding office in the state again.
