The Kraken Gets Sanctioned

Sydney Powell unleashing the Kraken.

U.S. District Judge Linda Parker in Michigan has sanctioned Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, and other Kraken lawyers (I would have used Krakpot, but that’s just me) for their lawsuit attempting to overturn the state’s election results:

Sidney Powell, Kraken legal team face sanctions, court costs and potential disbarment over election lawsuit

Attorneys allied with former President Donald Trump who tried to use a conspiracy-laden lawsuit to overturn Michigan’s election results have received federal sanctions from a judge in Michigan and could face a host of other disciplinary measures.

The attorneys must also pay legal fees for the city of Detroit and others that defended against the lawsuit and take 12 hours of training — including six hours focused on election law — in the next six months.

Here’s the operative quote, and it is a good’un:

“And this case was never about fraud — it was about undermining the people’s faith in our democracy and debasing the judicial process to do so.”

In other words, ETTD.

The full 110-page ruling is here.

    I love the outcome but it’s way too late. Her Bull could have changed the election outcome, and certainly helped fuel a riot.
    There is a need for correction at internet speed if ever I saw one.

    • All of this will change election outcomes, unless the King and Queen of America (Manchin/Sinema) deign to pass the new VRA by carving out an exemption to the filibuster. The AZ lege is still of the opinion that despite state law, the Yew-Ess Constitooshun sez they have the right to chose who we voted for, no matter who we voted for..

      And BOY-HOWDY will they sic the pigs on people protesting this, pointing to Jan6.

    This is my favorite part:

    Can’t wait to hear the lamentations coming from the party of law & order.

    Hey! I’ve got an idea! Let’s sacrifice Powell to the Kraken!

    Like right out of the movie: chained out there on the pinnacle in a see-through tunic …
