Pima County, AZ Loses Appeal in RTA Ballot Case: Libertarians Secure Legal Victory for Election Inte

• Weekly Intercept
According to Attorney Bill Risner, the Arizona Supreme Court issued its order today denying Pima County's Petition for Review of the decision of the Court of Appeals. As a result, the Libertarian Party has completed the second half of its legal victory in obtaining prospective relief against rigged elections through the courts. In Arizona, the courts are the last available means to prevent election fraud from reoccurring in the future; the legislative and executive branches have failed to provide adequate remedies. The Court of Appeals reversed Judge Charles Harrington's previous dismissal of the case and remanded the case for further proceedings. Pima County oversees the elections for that county and enjoined itself in a lawsuit originally designed to determine the predicament of the 2006 RTA ballots, currently in the possession of the County Treasurer's office. The ballots have been preserved because of previous litigation that ultimately uncovered a significant amount of evidence

There is nothing so sweet as having the evidence on hand.  What a great job the election integrity activists in Tucson (Pima County) have been doing on this for years now.

And it has certainly not just been Libertarians.  Progressives and especially Democrats who have ignored the substantial pressures and name calling of their own party to continue to expose this blatantly rigged election like a bulldog with its teeth in the fanny of "justice."  They won't let go no matter how loud the judge screams.
