Roy Moore’s “Voter Fraud Expert” Also Claims To Have “Mathematically Proven” JFK Assassination Conspiracy

Raw Story reports:

Richard Charnin, the purported “expert” in voter fraud who has been cited by the Roy Moore campaign to claim that Democrat Doug Jones did not legitimately win this month’s Alabama Senate special election, is a notorious conspiracy theorist who has claimed that he has “mathematically proved” that there was a vast conspiracy to assassinate former President John F. Kennedy.

As noted by CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins, Charnin in 2014 published a book called “Reclaiming Science: the JFK Conspiracy,” which was described as “a mathematical analysis of unnatural deaths, witness testimony, altered evidence and media disinformation” about Kennedy’s assassination in 1963.

Law & Crime reports:

Charnin has also pushed conspiracies about Seth Rich, who was a DNC staffer murdered in July 2016. “It’s not just about Seth Rich. Applied Mathematics indicates a virtual 100% probability of a cover-up,” he wrote.

Moore is the first Republican to lose an Alabama Senate race in 25 years. We can’t imagine that Mr. Charnin’s affidavit and Moore’ election complaint will be a winning effort either.

  • Well, gee, that clears up everything! He must be legit, then!

    My client, the great judge Roy Moore, won the election by more than 700 Billion votes and that was revealed to me by Elvis when he landed in my front yard to pick up Bigfoot and return him back to Jesus who let him off his leash.

      Maybe the bright side of this suit will be it exposes the voter suppression efforts the GOP’ers have put into place.

        …except we already know all about that…

        • Rambie

          We do, but having it in court records is different. Plus having it on record from a GOP’er is different than from progressive groups or the ACLU.

    This is also the guy Tim Robbins cites as an “expert” on how the primaries were stolen from Bernie Sanders.
    Isn’t it nice how he can appeal to crackpots on both sides?

      Shame on Tim Robbins.

          Ho-ho … just wait … when the Trumpster gets the news that the impeachment is happening or that he is nailed for illegal money laundering or something that’ll result in jail time for him and the minions.

          He’ll have a MAJOR blowout – we’re talking coronary, stroke and blaming Democrats, the Clinton’s, liberals, gays, Afro-Americans and any other non-Caucasians. It’s gonna be spectacular and totally unbelievable. I’m even thinking he’ll call for a Revolution or try to call out the National Guard, the Army,Marines, Coast Guard and the Navy, all Police Departments and Firemen throughout the country to put down the liberals and the Media.

    • kaydenpat

      I’d be okay with that. He wouldn’t be creating the chaos that he is from his position in the White House.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Julian Assmange actually sent Trump an email before the election telling him not to concede no matter how the vote turned out.

    There is a 99% probability that Charnin is a crackpot, ±1%.

  • Boreal

    This is how repigs try to win, by contesting results, and usually dems let them: Bush V Gore
    Time to use their own tactics against them. Moore will not get the election results overturned in this case but our side should contest every close election as Shelly Simonds is doing in VA.

    • Rambie

      The more Moore whines the more tar he’s throwing on the GOP’ers and the voter suppression efforts they’ve enacted.

  • JaniceInToronto

    I wish this shithead would just shrivel up and die.

    He is a first-class asshole, and proves it every day.

    Wait a minute, let’s hear the guy out. If he has proof Ted Cruz’s father ordered the assassination let’s hear it.

  • Frank McCormick

    There is no such thing in probability and statistics of a “virtual 100%”. The right has turned mathematics into “fake news”. Sad!

    Apparently someone squeezed the Charmin too hard and cut off the blood flow to his brain.

    “50 ways not to concede” by the loser must be a parody to Paul Simon’s “50 ways to leave your lover”.

  • Applied mathematics? How does that prove a coverup?

    • Ben in Oakland

      You’d have to apply the mathematics to know. But youcan’t, which proves there’s a coverup.

    So, in another Roy Moore thread today, someone suggested he’d run for US House. Which of his three homes is his official residence is unclear, but let’s go with the one I found first (and funniest) in unincorporated Gallant, AL (for the Goofus he is), also known as “Greasy Cove”. That would put him in AL’s 4th, the most pro-Trump, pro-GOP, significantly gerrymandered district in that state. Appropriately, that district is currently represented (as it has been for 20 years) by TeaBagger Robert Anderholt (R, duh), who campaigned for Moore. Anderholt’s voting record and stand on the issues is as expected from that very brief description, but his bill sponsorship record suggests he just likes getting money from towing companies and other easily corrupt companies to do, and permit, nothing.

  • kareemachan

    Well, at least it uses up some of his money he conned people into giving him to fight this. So it won’t all go in his pocket.

  • William of Glynn
  • SilasMarner

    These people are seriously psychotic.

  • Treant

    I’m idly curious as to which variables they chose to ignore, since any real-world situation has any number of chaotic influences you simply cannot account for since you can’t ever know them.

    Not to mention that “witness tampering” looks similar mathematically as “not knowing an answer” when on the stand, and identical to “simply being wrong.”

  • Skeptical_Inquirer

    If the GOP don’t just tell him to shut the hell up, the Dems should tell the GOP that if they keep up with this bullshit, they’re totally going tit for tat for every single fucking race the GOP wins.

  • BeaverTales

    Christianist Mathematician?

    Applied Mathematics indicates a virtual 100% probability of a cover-up,” he wrote.

    Oh good, a math post! Thanks Joe!!! (making excited math nerd noises)…what’s our topic today? Richard Charnin.

    Wall Street Mathematician extraordinaire??His bio on Amazon states the following:

    I graduated from Queens College (NY) in 1965 with a BA in Mathematics. My first job was a numerical control engineer/programmer for Grumman Aerospace Corporation, a major defense/aerospace manufacturer (lunar module). I obtained an MS in Applied Mathematics (Adelphi University, 1969) and an MS in Operations Research (Polytechnic Institute of NY, 1973).

    In 1976, I moved on to Wall Street as manager/developer of corporate finance quantitative applications for White Weld & Co, an old-line investment bank that was acquired by Merrill Lynch in 1978. When personal computers first became available in 1982, I converted many of the mainframe FORTRAN application programs to Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets – and years later to Excel.

    As an independent software consultant, I specialized in quantitative applications development for major domestic and foreign financial institutions, investment firms and industrial corporations.

    Impressive. If the “Mathematics” Charnin uses produces *100% probability* Does this mean there’s *no* possibility of him being wrong, correct? This sounds like a slam-dunk argument, then…

    Is he using Frequentist or Bayesian Probability Matrices? Fisher vs. Bayes vs. Popper argument constructions? Neyman -Pearson Hypothesis testing?!? Is it falsifiable or not? Is it logical? Weak or strong? Consistent, paraconsistent, or inconsistent? Complete or Incomplete? Church-Turing computable or the Entscheidungsproblem? Was the result peer reviewed? If yes, which journals: Logique et Analyse, Communications or Biometrika?

    If I were the lawyer for Doug Jones or the State of Alabama, I would have so many questions about this Charnin’s “research”.

    • Bad Tom

      Oh, he’s a Quant! He made a bunch of BUX, being a Quant!
      So, he’s convinced himself his math mojo can do no wrong.

      I’ve known people like him. They equate richness with correctness.
      They are wrong.

      • BeaverTales

        I have a lot of respect for statistics, properly applied. A respectable quant with proper math training will be able to discuss the limitations of stats and probability when looking at Big Data, But he is a prostitute…whoring his math degree to conservative politicians for economic gain.

        Luckily most quants are liberal, and much smarter and more honest than this clown…

        I might buy his book just so I can debunk it with a scathing review. I don’t want him to make money off of me, so hopefully the library will have a copy.

    • Mark_in_MN

      Ooh, he created Lotus and Excel spreadsheets! Wow. Such skills and qualifications. His analysis of elections and assassinations and other deaths can’t possibly be wrong with such expertise. /sarcasm

  • 2patricius2

    Is that where the article in the National Enquirer claiming that Nixon and Johnson conspired to murder JFK came from?

  • Galvestonian

    My step father had for many years looked for a doctor that approved of his smoking habits. He found one about 2 years prior to his death of lung cancer. He just couldn’t accept the fact that smoking kills. Mr. Moore looked for someone to pay to tell him what he wanted to hear and like my stepfather just refused to hear anything else.

    • juanjo54

      I wonder if your stepdad knew my aunt. She smoked two packs a day for 50 years and ultimately died of emphysema. She used to turn off her oxygen so she could light up a cigarette. But to her dying day she insisted her “lung problem” was not emphysema but rather was the result of an operation to remove a throat polyp done when she was in her 60s. Denial is not a river in Egypt.

      • Galvestonian

        Stepdad did the same thing in the hospital – he’d turn off the oxygen to smoke. The final week in the hospice was pretty bad, but he still denied that smoking had anything to do with it.

    • Rob NYNY

      My brother smoked through a hole in his throat. After having his tongue and one eye removed due to cancer.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

  • The_Wretched

    Moore is a Christian extremist and has always been on the fringe. The fact if him having had the Alabama Chief SCT Judge seat and nearly winning a Senate seat shows that the Republican party has zero quality control. I expect pretty much everyone he’s willing to hire or are hired by him to also be fringers.

  • Randolph Finder

    This makes Norm Coleman’s efforts in the 2008 Minnesota Senate election recount against Al Franken look organized, sane and reasonable.

    May I say I’d believe in a conspiracy to kill Kennedy BEFORE I’d believe that Jones didn’t WIN this election?

    I keep seeing Richard Charnin’s name here and thinking that it says Charmin (as in “don’t squeeze the…”). Seems fitting somehow.
