A military wife, caught in the crossfire of the Republican Party’s “criminal voter fraud” claims, is now speaking out about the allegations she and her husband are facing.

Adam Laxalt, Nevada’s former Attorney General and Co-Chair of the Trump re-Election campaign, insists the campaign is “confident” that thousands of people voted that no longer live in Clark County Nevada.

“We are also confident that there are thousands of people whose votes have been counted that have moved out of Clark County during the pandemic,” said Laxalt.

Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria acknowledged that he received a list from the Trump campaign of alleged illegal voters, but also noted that it is not an odd occurrence, or an illegality, for someone who has moved to still be eligible to vote. Gloria highlighted the county’s demographic, which is comprised of active military members and college students who are eligible to claim residency in the state of Nevada.

“This is a military town,” Gloria said. “We have Nellis Air Force Base. We also have several students who travel out of state to go to school.”

Amy Rose, a military wife and attorney, shared her reaction to the allegations. During an interview with News3 Las Vegas, Rose made it clear that she and her husband are not pleased with the Republican Party’s baseless claims. Although the former ACLU lawyer now lives in Davis, California, she noted that “if you are in a state on orders for the military, families don’t have to change their residency.”

“My husband and I have both been accused of fraud,” said Amy Rose. “We take our duties as citizens very seriously, and it’s just a shock to see that this accusation had been made without any basis in fact.”

She also went on to explain the difficulties many military families face due to work-related relocations.

“We were there for so long, got involved in the community,” said Rose. “Where the military vote, it’s considered their home because as military families we are not really able to set down roots in one place that often.”

Rose admitted that she believes the allegations were not thoroughly planned out before being made public.

“The list has addresses that are literally on Air Force bases,” Rose said. “It says ‘Hill AFB.’ I think it says ‘Beale AFB.’ There’s joint bases.”

She also admitted that “she and her husband’s ability to vote in their home state is a state and federal process that families secure with the county registrar.”

Republican’s own standing in Congress now in doubt — did his voter fraud lawsuit backfire?

Published

A Republican congressman from Pennsylvania has cast doubt on his own legitimacy to serve in Congress with his failed lawsuit attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) attempted to have the courts block certification of the 2020 election results, but his effort was rejected by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Saturday.

"The PA Supreme Court dismisses the case brought by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election," Philadelphia Inquirer correspondent Jonathan Lai reported Saturday. "This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in."

What can the left expect from a Biden-Harris administration? Pretty much nothing

On Nov. 7 of this year, the United States let out a collective roar that rippled across the nation, resonating the crowds of blue-clad people swelling the streets and the squares, and causing buildings to tremble as those inside broke out the champagne and began to dance. The celebrations lasted long into the night. For those few precious moments, it felt as though a curse had been lifted, a nightmare abated. Trumpism had ground itself to a resounding and decisive halt and it seemed that political space on the left, and on the center ground, had finally begun to open again.
