Offensive’ To Expect Votes To Be Counted Faster

Maricopa County Supervisor Bill Gates criticized Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake of Arizona Thursday over her criticism of the slow pace of the vote count. “Quite frankly it’s offensive for Kari Lake to say that these people behind me are slow rolling this when they’re working 14 to 18 hours. So I really hope this is the end of that now. We can be patient and respect the results when they come out,” Gates said in remarks to a local station that were broadcast on CNN Friday.

Ask Ron DeSantis to call him and say in Florida we counted three time the total votes in all of Arizona in one night and your still counting? You are making America look like a third world country!

Defensive and sanctimonious victimhood noted, Bill. Now, get it moving. Hint: skipping the attempt to overcome Kari’s lead would probably help.

It's offensive to have the same people such as Supervisor Bill Gates in charge. Is he saying that Arizona vote counters aren't smart enough to count votes quickly. The people that counted votes in 2020 are probably still counting votes. Kari Lake is saying what the rest of us are thinking. Will he respect the results when they come out if they don't go the way he wants?

I strongly urge every AT reader to download the report and spend 30 to 60 minutes reading the first 50 pages. Here are a few of the salient points. The Washington Field Office is manipulating its case filing system to feign a nationwide rise in domestic terrorism.

The 37-10 vote—which was conducted behind closed doors—comes after an underwhelming midterm election cycle for Republican Senate candidates that opened McConnell up to a challenge from Florida Senator Rick Scott, the head of the National Republican Senate Committee and a longtime rival of McConnell's who has sought to make inroads into Republican leadership for years.

After the midterms, the Republican Party and half of the conservative movement are now furious with Donald Trump. Their writs are many — even though the party establishment shares much of the blame. Even before the midterms, there was a latent feeling among half of Republicans that Trump, given his age, and the animus he incurs among the rich Left and touchy independents, might retire to the role of kingmaker, rather than try a third presidential election. Trump’s eruptions, coupled with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ stunning and singular midterm success, ensured that such prior latent conservative unease is now overt.

House Republicans nominated Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) to be Speaker in a closed-door conference meeting on Tuesday after he faced a last-minute protest challenge from Rep. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), a former chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. McCarthy won easily, 188 to 31, in the internal conference meeting. But in the eyes of Biggs and his supporters, the goal was merely to demonstrate that McCarthy lacks the support to seize the gavel when the full House meets to choose the Speaker early next year.
