STATE LEGISLATURES HAVE DUTY TO ACTIVELY FIGHT BALLOT FRAUD
THE CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY OF STATE LEGISLATURES
IN A CONTESTED PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
As posted elsewhere on Public Advocate, we are sponsoring protests and other support in the states where there has been record amounts of ballot fraud. This paper by experienced conservative lawyers explains why, indeed, it is the duty of state legislators to care about ballot fraud in their states.

The American People deserve lawful presidential elections: "No right is more precious in a free country than that of having a voice in the election of those who make the laws under which, as good citizens, we must live. Other rights, even the most basic, are illusory if the right
to vote is undermined." Wesberry v. Sanders, 376 U.S. 1, 10 (1964).
During the 2020 Presidential Election, many of the so-called swing states, including Arizona, saw unprecedented-and unlawful-erosions of procedural safeguards as well as administrative irregularities on Election Day. People deserve an honest accounting of who won.
Many Americans voted via a process - absentee ballots, including mail in ballots - that the
bipartisan Jimmy Carter-James Baker commission identified as "the largest source of potential
voter fraud" in the wake of the contested 2000 election. BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN U.S.
ELECTIONS: REPORT OF THE COMMISSION ON FEDERAL ELECTION REFORM, at 46
With respect to identifying and remediating fraudulent or mistaken results, it is now or
never, whatever can be done must be done..............................
At a 96 minute press conference on November 19, 2020, Trump campaign counsel
Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis presented what they described as their "Opening Statement," in the Trump Campaign's effort to demonstrate various types of election fraud.
That Opening Statement outlined details of election fraud that has occurred in Arizona,
Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Election fraud in New Mexico and Virginia was also briefly addressed.
That press conference was covered by Fox and Newsmax, but largely ignored by the other networks. The consensus mainstream media terms used to describe charges of election fraud continue to be "baseless" and "unproven."
There is good reason to believe that significant election fraud occurred, and the source of this alleged fraud was not just the "run-of-the-mill" Big City Democrat election fraud.
The briefing by the Trump attorneys asserts there is significant evidence that this election fraud has been aided and abetted by three particularly disturbing sources: (i) the Deep State and elements of the Intelligence Community;1 (ii) foreign governments; and even (iii) some Republican office holders who benefitted from the election systems that have been put in place.
Nonetheless, the Trump Campaign has made a prima facie case of fraud based on statistical abnormalities and several key affidavits explaining systemic election fraud. (As one
illustration, the Appendix to this Memorandum sets out an analysis of the Georgia and
Pennsylvania vote dumps which appears to demonstrate a pattern of voter dumps that can only
be explained as election fraud.)
As such information is presented in a more systematic manner, it will be increasingly difficult for anyone to say that there is no evidence of fraud.
