The election board here has four people on it, two Democrats and two Republicans. Initially, the two Republicans voted to deny certification of the county's votes based on discrepancies between votes cast and votes recorded. That set of a huge controversy, including doxxing and accusations of racism. The cameras were turned off, and shortly after that, the vote was certified -- with a demand that an audit be conducted.
And then apparently that audit demand was ignored. The representatives were furious and sought to withdraw their vote to certify.
Can they do that? Who knows?
Clearly they should not have caved in the first place, but for relatively ordinary people under dramatic pressure, I can't put too much blame on them.
But we are going to need to find people with the backbone to fight if we are going to win this one.
