Poll worker testifies on AZ voting problems: ‘Every single time it happened — it was a Democratic voter’

Published

An Arizona poll worker testified Monday that dozens of voters — all of them Democrats — were affected by a computer glitch during last month’s primary election.

Dianne Post, an attorney and Maricopa County poll worker, testified that the computer system checking in voters would not allow her to give the correct ballots to 36 voters, and she said 22 other voters were listed in the wrong party, reported the Arizona Republic.

“Every single time it happened to me it was a Democratic voter who wasn’t able to access a Democratic ballot,” Post said.

Alisa Wolfe, of Pima County, testified that her voter registration had been improperly switched from Democratic to independent.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge David Gass rejected requests to dismiss a lawsuit filed over the problematic March 22 primary election, which was won by Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.

The Democratic Party, Clinton and her primary challenger, Bernie Sanders, filed lawsuits over problems caused when election officials shut down numerous polling stations to save money.

A Tucson resident, John Brakey, filed a separate lawsuit against Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan and all 15 counties after the election, asking for results to be decertified.

The state attorney general has said primary results can’t be challenged because Brakey can’t demonstrate the results would have changed.

The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating whether Maricopa County violated voting-rights laws.

Host Jeanine Pirro noted the growing death toll and wondered how God could let that happen.

"Well, I don't think it's God's plan for this to happen," Graham said.

"It's because of the sin that's in the world, judge," he argued.

"Man has turned his back on God, we have sinned against him, and we need to ask for God's forgiveness and that's what Easter's all about," he continued.

"This pandemic, this is the result of a fallen world that has turned its back on God," he added.

Drought causing water shortage amid coronavirus crisis in Chile

Published

on

With historically low river flows and reservoirs running dry due to drought, people in central Chile have found themselves particularly vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.

Years of resource exploitation and lax legislation have allowed most reservoirs in that part of the country to run dry.

"There are now 400,000 families, nearly 1.5 million people approximately, whose supply of 50 liters of water a day depends on tankers," Rodrigo Mundaca, spokesman for the Movement for the Defense of Water, the Earth and the Protection of the Environment, told AFP.

One of the main pieces of advice to protect people against coronavirus is to wash your hands regularly.

Europe continues to bear the brunt of the epidemic, however, accounting for over 45,000 of the worldwide deaths, and Britain reported a new daily high in fatalities.

There are now more than 1.17 million confirmed coronavirus cases around the world and there have been 63,437 deaths since the virus emerged in China late last year.
