Law & Crime reports:
A federal judge appointed by President Donald Trump rejected what he called a “creative” lawsuit on Thursday. It was a suit that Georgia’s assistant attorney general warned would cause the Peach State’s largest disenfranchisement since the Jim Crow era.
“To halt the certification at literally the 11th hour would breed confusion and disenfranchisement that I find have no basis in fact and law,” U.S. District Judge Steven Grimberg declared at the end of a roughly two-and-a-half hour hearing.
On the surface of his lawsuit, Lin Wood claims that Georgia’s GOP Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger harmed him as a voter by agreeing to a March settlement agreement on signature matching in ballots. The lawyer waited eight months and three election cycles to challenge it on Nov. 13, when it became clear that President-elect Joe Biden had won.
RELATED: Earlier today Mother Jones published a utterly bonkers profile of Wood. From an email he sent to lawyers that are suing him:
God has given me permission to be profane in this email. You damn dumb motherfuckers. God Almighty told me to get you back to where you belong. Broke and essentially homeless. You all better get on your knees and pray to Almighty God that He now asks me to show you mercy. If he does, I will show it, if he does not, I will deliver a fiery judgment against you on earth. Who the fuck did you think you were dealing with?
You were screwing around me with [sic], but I was someone else in disguise. You in fact have been screwing around with God Almighty. I am not God. You lied when you told others that I thought I was. I am L. Lin Wood—the sole member of L. Lin Wood, P.C. The architect of the most masterful and powerful Valentine’s Day massacre known in American history. The last one killed seven. Mine will ruin many more before it is over. Deservedly so.
Read the full profile.
The sole witness in the federal election case in Georgia is a Republican activist who thinks it’s “amazing” and suspicious that Biden got so many more votes than Trump in the batches that she saw.
