Scrutiny Of The U.S. Postal Service Continues As States Report Missing Ballots

"Based on a court filing earlier this week, it appeared that the Postal Service had lost track. Of some 300,000 mail in ballots. The ballots had been scanned into the system, but there was no record that they had been scanned out. But the Postal Service said in a statement that there was a simple explanation that under the extraordinary measures it was taking Teo get Election mail delivered on time, postal workers removed the ballots from the system before they received a final scan and delivered them directly to election boards. Mark demonstration, president of the American Postal Workers Union says that's exactly what happened. They're not missing. They're not disappeared. We have every reason to believe they made it to their final destination. And were counted there not accounted for in the same way that regular mail would have been. The Postal Service has been under extreme scrutiny during this election season because of concerns over the Corona virus pandemic. Some 65 million Americans voted by mail nationwide, but there were deep suspicions after Lewis to joy, a big dollar donor to Republicans, including President Trump was named Postmaster general. Choi, who ran a logistics company immediately introduced cost cutting measures that critics said slowed the mail. The Postal Service suspended those changes, spurred by a series of lawsuits from state officials and advocacy groups. Demonstration says Despite the controversies, he believes the Postal Service did a good job under a lot of pressure, very proud of it. Obviously all the vote should be counted, but this was a really success. For the American people. Still, there were some glitches in testimony today before U. S District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan. It was revealed that as many as 68 ballots were not delivered in Atlanta in time to be counted, and some 1400 ballots mailed over the weekend didn't arrive by Election Day in Pennsylvania. But officials there have until tomorrow to count them, and postal officials have been told to keep sweeping their facilities for ballots until then. Brian Naylor NPR news

Georgia Senate race goes into runoff territory

"Where election officials are reporting more vote tallies. The latest numbers show that President Trump's lead among votes counted so far falling to below 14,000 the States voting system Implementation manager Gabriel Sterling said this morning that he is prayerful that all votes will be counted by the end of today. Joining us now is a meal. Moffett reporter at W. A. B E in Atlanta and a meal how many votes are still left to be counted and how much has counting mail in ballots helped close this gap for Biden? Anton you We just got an update from the secretary of State's office. 47,000 ballots absentee ballots left to count. As of this hour in Georgia, so they're getting added It's taken a taken a while, but but it's happening. And what we've seen over the course of the last 24 to 36 hours is that all of these ballots that are still being counted our mail in ballots, and those have favored the Democrat Joe Biden. So we have seen Donald Trump's lead in Georgia dropped dramatically in the last 36 hours. And as you mentioned, it's down to the last update 13,000 to 20 the difference between the two candidates. What are the counties that you're specifically watching? We are watching a Fulton obviously is the largest county in Georgia. It does lean Democrat very heavily in Fulton County. They have completed the counting in Fulton County, but they're still uploading those results to the secretary of state's website, so they haven't necessarily all showed up. There's about 5000 left to show up on Fulton side so that could even cut into the lead the president to leave a little bit more. We're also watching Chatham County Savannah, which is also a Democrat, leading area. There's still 17,000 absentee ballots to be processed and scanned and counted and uploaded there. So that could be another area in which Joe Biden picks up some more votes Remind us briefly why Georgia is so critical to this presidential race right now. It's critical not only because it's closed but because this is a place where Donald Trump won by five points. Four years ago, and now with a million new registered voters In the course of the last couple of years, it is become a toss up state. And you know some of the president's advisors there saying that you know if they don't win Georgia that could be the ball game for everything. And so I think, you know, a win here for Joe Biden would pretty much sealed the deal. And it would just be an incredible turnaround story in politics coming from 2016, too, now. Let's talk a little bit about litigation. A Georgia judge has thrown out this lawsuit from the Trump campaign that tried to invalidate some of these mail in ballots alleging that they came in after seven PM on election night. Are we likely to see another challenge in the state? And if so, on what grounds I would imagine we may see some or legal action based on the extreme close nature of this race. But quite frankly, it's going to have to be on process more than the laws themselves. This is a state with a Republican secretary of state, a Republican controlled state election board and a Republican Legislature. So as far as the law's go, there's not really a lot for Republicans to complain about. They're going to have to go after, as was mentioned in this lawsuit, which was dismissed this morning, the process of actually handling the ballots and what the process is going as far as handling those ballots that were received before and after seven o'clock on election night, which is kind of the deadline in the line of demarcation for What ballots are going to be counted and what are not. Georgia law allows for a recount it fewer than half a percent difference. Is the Biden camp preparing for a legal fight, too? I think that you know, they definitely could be. You know this. This race could come down to just a couple of 1000 votes well within the margin, So I think no matter what happens in this state, no matter who comes out on top when all the votes are counted here in the next day or two, I think we could see a recount definitely is something that That both parties would like to challenge depends on who comes out on top 30 seconds I have with you. What's the latest on the Senate race there between Republican David Perdue and Democrat John Aasif? It is looking more and more like a second Senate race in Georgia will go to a runoff in January. David Purdue has just dropped below the 50% bar part which you're required to attain here in Georgia to win an election. And so Jon Ossoff's challenger, is hoping to get into that runoff in January, which could very well determine the control of the U. S. Senate with two races in Georgia.

Facebook Prepares for Possible Election Unrest in U.S.

"We're just a week away from the election. Millions of people have already voted early either in person or by mail but campaigns and state election boards are preparing for the final get out the vote push that will hopefully culminate in a decision next Tuesday. We say hopefully because there has already been a lot of talk about a contested election and what could happen if it is contested. We report that facebook is preparing for that possibility and also for possible civil unrest after the election potentially having to calm election related conflicts by deploying internal tools designed for elections in other countries in countries that are considered at risk like sherline, Ga and Myanmar. Our. Tech reporter Jeff Horwitz has been writing about this with his colleague see the Roman and he joins us now hey jeff. All right. So Jeff, you spoke with people familiar with these measures at facebook. Tell me about these internal tools that facebook is preparing to deploy. Sure. So important baseline here is that facebook has a lot of controls that they don't talk about very much over the distribution of content on the platform. A what appears in newsfeed what content succeeds at how much succeeds. Now, it's not to say that that's Mark Zuckerberg a you know to terminate which facebook posts are going to successful but just some sort of general tuning up the platform and how it distributes content can make a big difference and in a number of countries you mentioned Sri Lanka and me and my. To start. Out with. Basically. Countries where facebook believes there is a serious risk of atrocities election-related violence things like that. That platform might contribute to its developed some tricks to attempt to calm the platform and hopefully com real world activities based on on platform activities. and. That's kind of the prospect of deploying them in the United States is kind of the that's the thing that we were writing about. So can you tell me a little bit about some of the specific tools we're talking about violence, but we're also talking about misinformation. So what kind of things could they potentially be doing? Sure. So inside the company people talk about the big levers like naming the things that you change and that really sort of have substantive in noticeable impact on the way that information flows across the platform. One of them is just overall limitations on variety by which I mean, the speed at which content can accelerate. Across the platform whether it's a really cute animal video or whether it's Mitt. Incendiary misinformation. Facebook has done with some success in the past is basically put a pretty strict cap on it, and in other words, slow everything down a little bit doesn't mean that you're punishing any particular content or anything like that. Just basically you're taking. Your slowing things down and you're GONNA make make it so that things that might have just. Been World in terms of how much attention they get get a little less attention they'll still get. Nobody's GonNa get censored, but it's just simply going to slow down the platform and that's something they find is. Obviously detrimental to the discovery of really hot content a good in the sense that it it gives the time company more time to react to problems on the platform and it's Sort of suppresses more incendiary stuff. So that's a big one of the tools. What about filters I mean we know that facebook has talked a lot about how it's trying to prevent violent content from getting on its platform are they going to be tightening the filters in some way to watch out for that stuff? Yes again that's going to be a pretty broad thing. Right it's not looking out for particular types of content so much as it is that facebook operates. it has what it, what it calls classify, which are basically algorithms that determine what type of content side particular post is and. Some of the classified can be fine tuned so that if you lower the threshold for how likely it is that facebook's computers believe that a piece of content is potentially inflammatory. If you lower that bar, you'll catch more content. Now, you also catch more content that isn't a problem to alongside but the idea is that at a time when people make. Get into civil unrest street violence as a result of conflict on the platform. Maybe. It's okay to be a little stricter. How does this compare? How is it different from some of the content restrictions that facebook and other social media companies have put in place ahead of the election, the restrictions on political ads for example, how does this fit into that bigger scheme? One thing that's very different here is that the sort of blackout for new ads? This is something facebook plans to just considers it to be prudent policy. The measures that we wrote about the emergency break glass at risk country type tools. These are things facebook would only break out if things are really really bad So one of them is kind of kind of planning here are rules. The second one is. These are the emergency tools that facebook could deploy in the event vic. The election gets out of control and I think some of the folks who spoke to me mentioned it seems prudent facebook would be considering all of these things. It constantly uses these tools in varying degrees. It's just that this would be using them to a particular effects when it really matters. You know facebook has been criticized for regulating content in the past Is there any question here about whether or not? These measures could also elicit some controversy? Yes. So I I've spoken to. One of the consultants that actually talked to facebook about these tools in Sri Lanka the Department of them there. And I mean there you had people who were beaten buildings that were set fire to as a result of a viral piece of misinformation about spurt of supposed- genocidal campaign against. Buddhists. It was just completely fictitious that was spread heavily their platform and other text based chat services, and so there tend to be most useful in places where the rule of law is weak. That's kind of been traditionally the way they've thought about this. But I think overseas in Myanmar and Sri Lanka and in Ethiopia where people have died, it becomes a hard thing to make the case that sort of the same free speech centric approach Mark Zuckerberg has espoused in the US and I think that the US tends to like just culturally really make sense you know it's difficult to way. You know you're right to say something on a platform versus somebody else's right to live and come up with A. A couple answer but again, I mean it kind of is a question of imbibe I have beholder whereas the US at with things like this be necessary. Could they even be necessary and facebook has an answer that question right? These are tools that. It, you know in a world that mark, Zuckerberg and none of us ever WANNA see We might see some of It's not announcing that we will see them. All right, our tech reporter, Jeff. Roberts thank you so much for joining me. Thank you.

The Supreme Court Allows More Time For Pennsylvania's Mail In Voting

The Supreme Court Allows More Time For Pennsylvania's Mail In Voting

"The Supreme Court allows extra time for Pennsylvania's mail in ballots by Marc Sherman and Mark Levy. Washington. The Supreme Court will allow Pennsylvania to count mailed in ballots received up to three days after the November third election rejecting a Republican plea in the presidential battleground state. The justices divided four four on Monday an outcome that upholds a state Supreme Court ruling that required county election officials to receive and count mailed in ballots that arrive up until November sixth. Even if they don't have a clear postmark as long as there is not proof it was mailed after the polls closed Republicans including President Donald Trump's campaign have opposed such an extension arguing that it violates federal law that sets Election Day as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November and that such a decision constitutionally belongs to lawmakers not the courts. The State Republican Party Chairman Lawrence Tavis said the party disagrees with the decision and noting the four four decision. It only underscores the importance of having a full supreme court as soon as possible to be clear. The Supreme Court decided not to grant stay which does not mean the actions of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court would withstand a legal challenge to their judicial overreach. Should the court hear the case tape said? Nancy Patty. Mills Chairwoman of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party accused Republicans of trying to sow confusion and disenfranchise eligible voters. This is a significant victory for Pennsylvania voters. Mills said in a statement, the Democratic majority on the state's High Court had cited warnings that postal service delays could invalidate numbers of ballots and surging demand for mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic to invoke the power used previously by the state's courts to extend election deadlines during a disaster. Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the three liberal justices to reject Pennsylvania Republicans call for the court to block the State Court ruling. Justices Samuel Alito Neal Gorsuch Brett. Cavanaugh and Clarence Thomas would have required the state to stop accepting absentee ballots when the polls close on November third. There were no opinions accompanying the order. So it is impossible to say what motivated either group of justices the conservative justices have been reluctant to allow court quarter changes to voting rules close to an election. The court also is weighing a similar issue from Wisconsin but in that case, the ruling being challenged comes from a federal appeals court and the Democrats who are asking the justices to step in. Most states make election day the deadline, but eighteen states half of which backed trump the twenty sixteen election have a post election day deadline with nearly a million votes already cast in Pennsylvania, we support the court's decision not to meddle in our already working system Pennsylvania's Attorney General Democrat Josh Shapiro said in a statement. On, a separate track Republicans in the State House have pressed Governor Tom Wolfe a Democrat to agree to eleventh-hour legislation to eliminate or limit the three days under the court's order. The case is one of many partisan battles being fought in the state legislature and the courts primarily over a male in voting. In Pennsylvania amid concerns that a presidential election result will hang in limbo for days on a drawn out vote count in the battleground state. And Pennsylvania the State Democratic Party and a liberal group the Pennsylvania Alliance for retired Americans had salt an extension of the election day deadline to count mailed ballots. About two point eight, million mail in ballots requested and approximately nine hundred thousand returned democratic registered voters are requesting mail ballots at a nearly three to one ratio over Republicans, and it's September seventeenth ruling the divided state Supreme Court said ballots must be postmarked by the time polls close and be received by county election boards at five pm on November six, three days after the November third election it also said that ballots lacking clear postmark could be counted unless there was evidence that they were mailed after the polls closed.

Cases of that number about 7900 are still active. The CDC is reversing some of its previous cove in 19 recommendations. As we hear from Beth Myers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They now say healthy people who have been exposed to Kobe 18 do not necessarily need a test as long as they don't have symptoms. That's a reversal from previous advice that clearly recommended testing for all close contacts of infected individuals, regardless of whether they had symptoms. The new recommendation excludes vulnerable individuals.

They don't mind staying at work a little bit longer. They just don't really get as much done because they're kind of hanging out. You know, I know having a coffee seven in the internet. All right. Well, let's get to back to the markets right now. China's GDP grew faster than expected in the first quarter while industrial output and retail sales for March clobbered estimates, the figure signals stimulus measures are working and may ease concerns about global growth. But according to Bloomberg economics, the most of the downturn is over but more policy support is needed. Let's get more on the China data. We cross over to Hong Kong Bloomberg chief Asia economics correspondent end occur in joins me. And what are we hearing? A what are we finding out looking through these numbers about how much more stimulus is needed? We'll let's because much of the rebound is being attributed to state spending. That people are saying the authorities aren't really in a position to step away. Just yet is not a story of private-sector demand, rebounding. It's just a story of stimulus gaining trucks in being effective. There are always caveats with China's dot for the first quarter name there is considerable season impact with the lunar new year new year holidays that could skew the numbers overall on certainly the case authorities did pour money into the economy over the course of the first three months of the year. So it's question of let's see where things go over next two months or so before we can really start to call confidently a trend. China's economy is back on its own feet per se. So what are the kind of stimulus measures that we're talking about? Because the market seemed concerned that they could come to an. End. Well, if you look at the fixed-asset investment side of it their husband and increase in spending on infrastructure projects there, it isn't fair case of the old style playbook because we've all goes before they're they're trying to be somewhat disciplined this time around. They're talking about three hundred billion worth of tax coats from the person right up to corporate level. That's certainly having an impact. And of course at the same time. They are definitely making sure there's enough cheap liquidity the system stoke banks to get to get lending going. But as in critic critic question would become whether or not they will need to continue those efforts in double down those efforts. Or if they have to look stepping back a note having to push more credit and do Connie on making start folks under de leveraging campaign again, it kind of. Coming up to a juncture nine where China's economy is headed over the next few months, and if you saw these kind of numbers as far as stock market gains in the US, you know, that would have a direct effect on the economy.

"I'm Leyla Vaudin. It's now been almost two months since the November general election, but in North Carolina's ninth congressional district. There is still no winner as the state board of elections investigates allegations of election fraud by a Republican operative and a ruling this past week by a three judge panel has created even more chaos in the disputed race. Joining me to talk about this never ending election is Steve Harrison of member station WFAN Charlotte, Steve reminded us, again, what the state board is investigating. So in late November Republican marquess was ahead of democrat, Dan, McCreevy by nine hundred five votes, and everyone assumed the race was over all the state elections sport had to do a certified the race, which should have been a mere formality. But the board didn't do that. And for the last month that's been investigating whether a political operative working for Harris name McRae, Dallas illegally collected absentee ballots and blatant county. And there's a lot of evidence through media interviews and the state board itself that Dallas did that to a great extent. The big day was going to be January eleventh. That's when the state elections board was going to hold a public hearing the case at all. It's evidence. And after that, it would either declare Harris the winner or call for new election. But I understand everything changed this week. What what happened and how does it impact the investigation? So in North Carolina, there's been an unrelated legal fight over the makeup of the state elections board and a three judge panel had previously said that this Colonel elections board, which was created by Republicans is unconstitutional that board was planning to stay intact and finish this investigation through January, but the same judges said you can't do that day chided the board for taking so long to hold that public hearing and said the night district deserves to have a winner. So they dissolved the entire board as of noon Friday. So right now, you have a situation where the elections board staff is still investigating. But there's no one really in charge. You can make a decision. So we don't even know what's going to happen at the January eleventh hearing or if the leave and be one and after that ruling both sides really turned up their rhetoric. What were they saying? So they did. And after this ruling both sides have kind of really lost their patients, and they've started hurling insults at each other Harris, the the Republican he demanded that the elections board immediately certified as the winner is the winner on Friday morning and in the boards last hours before being dissolved. He also questioned in a radio interview, whether the elections board had a his word sinister motive on blowing the whistle on the absentee mail fraud. After he won instead of earlier in the year. And that's been a common theme among Republicans the election board is BI partisan. But the GOP feels the Democrats on the board didn't really care about possible fraud and Blaine county until it impacted their candidate. And on the other side. The Democrats have been on the offensive for a long time. They've been hammering Harris for hiring McRae, Dallas. And congress has not weighed in is that right before they have kind of said, they were gonna take a wait and see attitude on whether they would cede Harris. But yesterday, the incoming majority leader, Steny Hoyer said no. That we are not going to seat him. Because of course, the Democrats take over the house, and they said big while this investigation is pending. He won't be seated. So even if is somehow certified he apparently has nowhere to go at least for now. So with no elections board. What happens next the democratic governor ROY Cooper has said he wants to create a temporary five member board until a new certified board comes online January thirty first that would presumably let the January eleventh hearing on a scheduled, but Republicans don't think that's legal and they've said they won't participate in any temporary board. So this whole thing could stretch well into two thousand eighteen that's reporter Steve Harrison in Charlotte. Thanks for speaking with us. Thank you. To another political standstill this one in Florida. The state was one of the last remaining to automatically restrict voting rights of convicted felons, but in November Floridians overwhelmingly passed a constitutional amendment granting voting rights back to certain felons. Now, the incoming governor some state lawmakers and election officials say they need to weigh in before any changes go into effect. Wwl RN's. Danny Rivera has more on paper the new amendment could inject over a million new voters into one of the nation's biggest battleground states overnight. As the amendments written. Most people convicted of a felony should be able to register to vote on January eighth. The only people excluded are those convicted of sex crimes are murder. But now there's increasing question about how is this amendment actually going to get implemented is says that voting rights shall be restored. I don't know what is unclear about that what could be unclear about that Howard, Simon just retired this November. But was the executive director of the American Civil Liberties union of Florida for decades he helped draft the ballot amendment and calls itself executing. Meaning no one has to touch it. We worked a year and a half on this language intentionally to say that there is no role for politicians people in the legislature people in the governor's office people in the secretary of state's office. But some Florida Republicans have a different take on that take the governor elect Rhonda Santa's who ran against the amendment. He told the podcast. He doesn't think it's self executing. There's going to be. A law that we're going to have pass in order to combine with that amendment for non Floridians. There's a political backdrop here several times in the last decade a citizen ballot initiative has overwhelmingly passed, but then the Republican dominated state government steps in and tries to override the will of the voters only to have the courts reject their proposal. And some activists are scared that could happen this time around. And meanwhile, felon voters wouldn't be able to vote in local elections which are happening as early as February. I think part of it is sort of a panic that we have a hard date, and this thing Republican state Senator Dennis baxley is the chairman of the ethics and elections committee any legislation about how this gets implemented will pass by his desk. He says lawmakers are absolutely not going to kick the ball around. The president of Senate has already clearly stated we're not gonna slow walkie time. We're going to implement what the people voted for. But we want to do it in a way that it works actually says potential issues are in the details like how exactly the cow. Counties will parse out sex offenders and convicted murderers county election officials haven't gotten guidance from the administration of outgoing governor Rick Scott about how to interpret who can vote baxley says that's where lawmakers might need to step in to get the whole state on the same page. So that you don't have sixty seven supervisors of election interpreting different ways as to how they balance eight this person's eligibility. Tranessa white is from Pensacola on the Florida, panhandle. She has a felony conviction. But she says on January eighth she's going to walk to the elections office and registered to vote..

There was media there. They just didn't write about it. I'd love to get the recordings of those meetings. And now, we're really finding out the elections board staff. It to all along, but they wrote rotary port in two thousand sixteen which is kind of erotic today since we're watching the headline for McClatchy newspaper, and I watch WSC WBZ TV last night with his huge stories. My gosh, there was election fraud in two thousand sixteen like this is the first time they've ever heard it. It was the lead story of eleven o'clock news last night.

The Democratic Party in selected by me because I had no choice but to select him or two other left-wing activists, and this is the same guy who two years ago in two thousand sixteen during the gubernatorial race during the soil conservation race in blatant county said there's no problems worth investigating. In fact, let me read some things to you. You know, this is why you listen to the Pap records show because we're telling you things you don't hear anywhere else. Here's here's a draft page two two of exhibit of the investigation of election irregularities affecting congressional district nine in two thousand sixteen why would the mccrory NC GOP team mount such a giant legal ballistic campaign with so few cases of actual fraud. Is it possible they hope to establish enough confusion about the fairness of the election to trigger a state law that would allow the Republican controlled general assembly to determine the winner, whatever the plan it failed, but not without inflicting inflicting substantial damage for weeks media reports bombarded the public with allegations of voter fraud and dozens of innocent voters had their reputations and lives disrupted. Finally election officials stopped the coordinated use of phony protests to cry to corrupt the election results, but they cannot undo the crust of impact of voter fraud hysteria on people's faith in fair elections. The mccrory NC GOP agenda behind any proven acts of corruption or voter harassment should be held accountable to the fullest extent, possible under federal and state laws. Well, now, all of a sudden, the Democrats are saying the exact same thing in the exact same county. And do I hear the elections board going we have no voter fraud. No, they're behind closed doors delaying the certification of an election because of the exact same issues that occurred in two thousand sixteen now mccrory McCreadie are both Irish names, but one has a D next to it and one has an are next to it. Could that be the reason? Exhibit two two to one. It's on the records. Some Republican leaders continued to inflate the magnitude of fraud. It's unbelievable. He looked like you.
