We’re supposed to accept our judicial system is ‘impartial’ when a judge won’t recuse herself from a decision directly involving her activist sister’s interests?
Between decisions like this one and the handling of General Flynn, it’s a real mystery why so many of us distrust the impartiality of even the judicial branch of our legal system, now isn’t it?
A federal judge in Georgia on Monday ordered two counties to reverse a decision removing more than 4,000 voters from the rolls ahead of the Jan. 5 runoff elections that will decide control of the U.S. Senate.
The judge, Leslie Abrams Gardner — the sister of former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a prominent ally of President-elect Joe Biden who has led voter registration efforts across the state — concluded that the counties appeared to have improperly relied on unverified change-of-address data to invalidate registrations in the two counties.
The bulk of the registrations that the counties sought to rescind, more than 4,000, were in Muscogee County, which Biden won handily in November. An additional 150 were from Ben Hill County, which Trump won by a wide margin.
The suit, brought by Majority Forward, represented by National Democratic Party attorney Marc Elias, followed an effort to challenge the lengthy roster of voters simply because their registrations appeared to match U.S. Postal Service change-of address records. Voting officials in the two counties agreed to remove the voters, despite warnings from Democrats that such postal data is not a reliable or conclusive indicator that a voter has given up their local residence. –Politico
The fact that Stacy Abrams runs a statewide voter registration organization that seeks to block the removal of questionable or disputed names from the rolls in the name of ‘stopping voter suppression’ — and that she gave a ruling perfectly in line with her sister’s activism, overturning the decisions of election officials to remove them — is precisely why this judge was unable to make an impartial ruling.
Imagine the odds…
You mean to tell us that in all of Georgia, no judge could have heard this case but the actual sister of the face of the left’s sketchy voter registration maximization movement.
What. A. Coincidence.
Let’s have a redo on that case, shall we? Just to be sure.
And maybe the Bar could review the integrity of a judge who wouldn’t recuse herself in such an obvious conflict.
