The Coup Was More Organized Than Beagles in a Vacuum Factory, Who Knew?

And as long as we are talkin’ ’bout Legitimate Political Discourse, this little item caught my eye:

The Democratic-led House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is expanding its probe into false electors tied to the 2020 election, issuing six new subpoenas, including to two Republicans currently running for statewide offices.

You’ll never guess which MPS Favorite got subpoena’ed!

The new wave of subpoena targets includes Kelli Ward, the chair of the Arizona Republican Party, in addition to two GOP political candidates in swing states. State Sen. Doug Mastriano is a candidate for Pennsylvania governor, and state Rep. Mark Finchem is running to be the next secretary of state in Arizona.

Yup, the Pride of the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan, Chemtrail Kelli makes a triumphant return to our pages!

But what is this scheme of false electors of which they speak, and who else is involved?

“The Select Committee is seeking information about efforts to send false slates of electors to Washington and change the outcome of the 2020 election,” select panel Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in a statement. “We’re seeking records and testimony from former campaign officials and other individuals in various states who we believe have relevant information about the planning and implementation of those plans.”

Ward, the panel said, reportedly spoke to Trump and his staff about election certification issues in Arizona and worked to transmit documents claiming an “alternate” Electoral College elector from Arizona.

The Republican gubernatorial candidate, Mastriano, was part of a plan to arrange for a fake slate of electors from Pennsylvania and reportedly spoke with Trump about post-election activities, the panel said.

Committee investigators say the Arizona GOP candidate, Finchem, helped organize an event in Phoenix where Trump’s legal team and others shared false claims of voter fraud. Finchem was also in Washington, D.C., on the day of the Capitol attack, claiming he had to deliver “evidence” to Vice President Mike Pence to postpone the certification of the election results, the panel said.

The new subpoena targets also include two officials for Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign: Michael Roman and Gary Brown. Roman, as director of Election Day operations, and Brown, as deputy director, both promoted false claims of election fraud and encouraged state officials to appoint fake electors, the committee said.

Finally, the panel said they hope to talk to former Michigan GOP chair Laura Cox after she reportedly witnessed former Trump personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani pressure state lawmakers to reject election results in Michigan.

So the plan to have disputed electors (if Mike Pence had had the Trumpian Courage) was more in motion than we previously realized.

  1. Mark Finchem is a real piece of work. A III%’er who believes that Covid is an insidious plot to turn us into communists and a fully immersed member of the “2020 wuz stolen” Club. If he gets to be SoS, say goodbye to election in AZ. I will not doubt he will try to make it illegal for Democrats to vote. literally. He’s a bugfuck insane person.
