The National Defense Authorization Act is known for drawing bipartisan approval year after year, but it may hit a road block this year.

"state court" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Be thankful for. Of course, I'm talking about our family, our friends so much that we have in our personal lives and not the least of which is our health and Of course, we're going to get into that in a little bit, but I wanted to finish the thought that I had. On Big tech. Big tech obviously does play a role, and there's a lot of people out there, including that guy. Dr Epstein, who you've seen all over. The place is a really bright guy. But again, this is one of those Complicated concepts that it really takes a lot of thoughtfulness to understand. It's not just plain is they they cheated, writes. Not that simple. It's it's There's a lot involved in how this plays out young. These constitutional challenges fall on two different sides one on the state, extending its authority and state courts acting as if they were the Legislature, which is unconstitutional. The other side of that being they violated part of the Constitution Article two section two claws to which states that everybody has to be treated the same under the law that equal protection clause. And if you want to hear more about that you can listen to the experts on that. But With respect to Big tech and what is happening with big tech in the role they play. There's a new book out by Cheryl Atkinson. And she was just doing an interview. And I want you to hear what she had to say, because I think it makes a lot of sense. Check this up. These forces knew that once they have largely controlled the terms of how we talk about news stories, in news divisions and on TV and on cable news that there was still this place they saw people were getting unfettered access to off narrative information opinions that maybe they don't want you to have her know about, and so they set out their goals to then move into the inner Having away like we haven't seen before. In a very overt way in those weeks before the election, in fact, to talk, try to control that information landscape as well. So the control of information Now this is one of those interesting things where I get a little philosophical because I look at everything through that lens of philosophy. I think of why do you think the way you do? And where did that come from? Because a lot of people. Look, I realized I don't make up the ideas that are in my head. He's a philosophical ideas that came from somewhere whether it's my my upbringing in faith as a Catholic or as a born again, Christian evangelical, whatever you wanna call it. My belief in Scripture informs my world view. And that's the case for everybody. Whether you believe in Scripture, not if you believe in atheism and that you know you're the god of yourself or there's no God at all. That is going to be what guides you. So This is very relative, and I'm not talking about relativism. But I'm saying it's relative to the conversation because of relativism, in my opinion is really what is Harming society. The fact that Could say, Well, you know, I'm wearing a blue shirt and somebody could say, Well, you know that's open to interpretation. I mean, some people may say that's not really blew it to hue of purple, perhaps, and really get into mincing words and splitting hairs. But the point of this relativism argument that I'm making is when people are talking about relativism, and they can't agree on what the truth is. If I could say Look, I'm willing to debate you. But you have to agree with me that you were both standing on this same floor. And if we can't agree on the floor and the ceiling And debate. What's in between? We can't have the debate because truth is no longer truth. Truth is what you make it to be, And this is what Cheryl Atkinson is talking about. When she's saying these powers are these these entities she's talking about the media and in particular social media. When Twitter can force you know what information comes up on your feet and follow and unfollowed people from your account. Outside of your will. When Facebook and not show you the Bunches of friends that you have, but you see the same people over and over the people. They want you to see her. At least they think that you want to see that you should see. And when Instagram and all the rest of them They use these algorithms They believe to help you to make things better. But it doesn't always help. I like to see on Facebook. You know, to me. Facebook was always my non political place. Because People put pictures of their kids, people that I went to high school with that. I don't see that I get to watch living their life like my buddy money, right? My buddy Money lives in California's in San Diego. He's not a political ally of mine. He's like my brother is like a best friend that I've had forever since the sixth grade. I love him. I love his family, and I love to watch his Children grow up. But Don't really get a lot of that, unless I go in the search bar and find him because what comes through my daily feed his more political stuff. Meanwhile, I have a hope Facebook patients just for politics. So my thinking is, why does this happen? And it's because Facebook prefers it that way. They prefer that instead of me saying all your kids a beautiful God bless him that I say things like, Hey, we gave Al Gore 37 days, so you better wait right And they want to see that reaction And this is there, divide and conquer technique..

Rudy Giuliani and President Trump's legal team continue to undermine the election
"Yesterday there was a presser with Trump's legal team talking about where they are in questioning election results in in several states. And you know them all very well. Here's Rudy Giuliani and what he had to say. This really stood out yesterday. We can not allow these crooks because that's what they are to steal an election from the American people they elected Donald Trump. They didn't elect Joe Biden. Joe Degenova legal analyst, former U. S attorney to the District of Columbia, a member of the Trump campaign legal team. His wife, Victoria, Tensing, also a member of that team, and you saw them yesterday there with Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellison. Some others, Joe, Thank you for joining us this morning. Good. Great to be here. So, Joe, obviously a lot of questions from yesterday, But I think the question that I walked away from this with as I thought. There were a lot of very compelling arguments that were made. But yet I heard from the left that that that presser did not answer their questions and left a lot of people walking away saying, Okay. What Now? What? What did you What was the point of it? What did you want to prove in? Do you think you proved that? Well, First of all, I don't care what the left says about yesterday. That's number one. If we were to listen to them, we'd never get anything done number one. Let's let's just get a little perspective here before everybody loses their brain power in 2020. We had one state in Bush v. Gore. 2020. We have 6 to 8 states that we have to deal with. I took daunting task, but it is doable. Now, let's just step back for a second. And look what happened on election night. Election night. Donald Trump has a massive lead. He's on his way. And then all of a sudden everything stops around midnight, and in the key battleground states, the counting stops it stops. And at that point, we asked. Well, what happened? Why is that happening? And the answer is that point Something was afoot. As Sherlock Holmes used to say the game is afoot. Now, why did it stop? It stopped because it had to, because once they saw how much Mr Biden needed to win, they needed to get to put in place a plan which had existed to allow him to win. Now I want a completely associate myself. With everything that Rudy Giuliani said yesterday This election was stolen from the president of the United States, and that's the job that he has assigned Those of us who were on the legal team to fix and that is exactly what we're about to do. Just we are supposed to believe that in these six states Everything happened at the same time by accident that this is just an act of God. It is fate that it is a coincidence. Well, in my opinion, it is a coincidence with a purpose on the purpose was to stop. To figure out from the computers what you needed to win and then to get those numbers and that's exactly what was done. Now we have affidavits, hundreds and hundreds of affidavits. That's what Victoria and I Have been doing over the last two weeks now, and that is finding witnesses talking to them, interviewing them and getting them to give sworn underscore. Warn affidavits or declarations to be used in courts of law. Now, the reaction yesterday at the news conference was really fascinating. When you stand up there, and you look out at this sea of reporters, mostly unfriendly, with a few exceptions. The nature of the questions is so stupid and uninformed and offensive. It's just remarkable for anybody to suggest the journalism lives. Now they have to be in some sort of cave. But you know what? It makes the fight even better to do. Because it's one thing to have to fight the other side. But it's another thing to have to fight almost the entire mainstream media and so that's what we're doing. We have great confidence in our legal team. And we've given these to the statistical analyses that are being done in the expert witnesses who are executing affidavits about the incredible anomalies. In the numbers that they are statistically impossible to be what are being represented to the public. I have no doubt that we will get a fair chance in federal courts and maybe in some state courts to prove our case, but we have time. And but again, this is in 2000 with one state. This is 2020 was 68 states. It's not easy, but it's being done and I want to congratulate everybody on the legal team. These people are working 24 hours a day with little sleep, no pay and are doing a marvelous job.
Trump campaign transfers $3 million to Wisconsin for recount
"After the two thousand sixteen presidential election green party candidate. Jill stein spent three point five million dollars on a statewide recount in wisconsin which then increased donald trump's total by one hundred thirty one votes. Donald trump called that recount a scam and called on voters to accept the results of the election today. The trump campaign wired three million dollars to the wisconsin election commission to pay for a recount of ballots. In just two of the state's counties the two most democratic counties milwaukee county and dane county joe biden beat donald trump in those two counties by a total of three hundred sixty four thousand two hundred ninety eight votes and joe biden. Beat donald trump in the state of wisconsin by twenty thousand five hundred sixty five votes today. George christianson and scott mcdonnell the clerks for milwaukee and dane counties. Said this about recounts. I'm not surprised that they selected dean and counties they certainly didn't select them for a regularities they sunk to them because they're democratic strongholds. Of course a so frustrating. You know we were trained georgia and i trained for a year and a half or more for this kind of this information from the kremlin That's what we were trying to figure out. We're gonna try to mitigate that information on it out a lot of these bo- never thought it would be coming from from ourselves from from within the united states joining us. Now is wisconsin attorney general. Josh kaul general call. Can you tell us what you expect. In this recount process and whether it will lead to any possible of election litigation trying to overturn the results. Well i the recount itself is virtually certain to confirm what we know. Which is that. Joe biden scott's by about twenty thousand votes as you mentioned before we have recount for years ago and the change in net votes for the candidates about one hundred and thirty one votes. We haven't after twenty eleven states court races. Well and kind. Statewide recounts are in the hundreds. Nothing even approaching twenty thousand boats and the trump campaign does seem to be a little confused about how this process works because in re competition they raised a variety of legal claims but the time for legal claims relating to lose the election is well before the election. There's even a doctrine that says you can't our plans to close to election because you need to have certainty about rules are now bring those arguments. After voting. his happened after ballots have been cast after about twenty thousand more. Wisconsin voted for. Joe biden voted for donald trump. It's too late for those kinds of challenges. So will this delay the certification of results in wisconsin. It shouldn't recount needs to be done by december first and that's the deadline for certifying results. So absence some sort of order or something else that interferes with process moving forward certification will have to happen on december first so it sounds like the trump campaign believes that this is not just counting votes. But it's some kind of evidentiary discovery of some sort in which they might at the end of the process. End up with a legal claim. Is that even possible. If all we're doing is counting votes. That's what they're suggesting you know. But that's not how the rejoin process works as you said a recount is about recounting the votes. It's about confirming that. The numbers were accurate. They may very well. File a legal challenge as the recounts going on or at the end of it but any kind of like that is certain to fail. We've seen the trump campaign's success in court post-election and they keep losing case after case in the reason is because their claims have no merit and if they were challenging staunton I'm confident that it would be swiftly rejected courts so attorney general. Call knowing everything you know about this The vote count as it is the recount process as it will work. Wisconsin's history with recounts the likely on numerical changes as a result of recount Would you say tonight that. We know who the winner of the state of wisconsin is. Yeah there's no question about who's won the state of wisconsin. Donald trump is basically the equivalent position. Somebody who bought lottery tickets but he's Ticket after the lottery has happened. It's it's over and we know who has won this election.

"I'm your host, Craig Berkson. If you're just joining us, we ended our last segment talking about how this election has given many of us deja vu from the presidential election that occurred in 2000. Between Gore and Bush. And because of this, I ended our last segment talking about this election, and I ended by saying that because there was on Lee a 2000 vote difference in Bush's favor. Recount was triggered for the state of Florida. Not to make a long story short there was a recount, and after the recount, it appeared that Bush still had more votes. Gore contested And the Florida State Court overruled Gore's objection. But the Florida Supreme Court overruled the state court and wanted 70,000 rejected votes to be recounted. Now. This decision went to the Supreme Court, which then ruled 7 to 2 that it was unconstitutional due to the equal protections for the Florida Supreme Court. To count those 70,000 rejected votes. Then the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 to force the Florida Supreme Court to reverse and remand the case. So what This meant was is that due to the upcoming deadline of December 12 that was in 2000, which left really no more time for Gore to find any more votes. The Supreme Court's decision in effect ended the recount and the previously certified vote tally was upheld, giving Bush the victory. In Florida and, of course, in effect the presidency. Now it's important to know that the Supreme Court's decision didn't steal the election. What wasn't known to the public outside of Florida was at the Florida Legislature had been meeting in special session since December, 8th to select the number of electors for December. 12th just in case The election was still in dispute. If the recount had continued, the four the Legislature would have awarded those electors to Bush based on the certified vote, and the only thing that Gore could have done would be then to contest the electors in the U. S. Congress, and the only thing that could have been done in that case would be for the Congress to reject the electors at Gore's request. The Congress was not going to do that. This was a narrow win for Bush, but it was clear who the winner Wasps now after the recount, the vote tally was the same. Bush was ahead. And the country accepted it, and no one disputed the outcome. After roll was said and done, unless, of course, you're Gore himself. With all this said it looks like we're in a similar situation today. The difference, however, is this. Listen carefully. Instead of Florida in 2000, which was one contested state. We now have six Florida's Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada. But unlike Florida in 2000, this contested election is not about overseas ballots. Accepted or not. It's not about hanging chads or dimpled ballots. It's far greater. It's about fraud, something that wasn't a part of the 2000 election and this fraud is undeniable. We have dead people voting in both Pennsylvania and Georgia..
Trump campaign faces uphill battle in legal fight over votes
"The Trump campaign lawsuits to invalidate thousands, if not millions of ballots cast in Pennsylvania and other states. Will likely face an uphill battle. As cable W Community affairs reporter Cherry, Greg explains. Elections lawyers say courts are reluctant to disenfranchise voters. This is an election law attorney based in Philadelphia, she says. Because of the political nature of elections, courts set a high bar for party seeking their intervention and a higher bar for those seeking to throw out ballot. Systemic fraud. I think you'd have to show bad face and I don't think you have either of those two things. Evidence in either case, the Trump campaign is filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and both federal and state court alleging breach of election procedures. There's also allegations of fraud, but the burden is on the plaintiffs to provide evidence The party's bringing these losses. They have no proof, meaning Mackenzie is legal director for the Public Interest Law Center and says courts also give deference that eligible voters who have properly cast their ballots based on guidance by government officials, she says it's very hard to toss such ballots even if election officials made mistake Basis to toss aside someone fundamental right to Kinsey says the right to vote is viewed by courts as the most sacred rites in American democracy.
"state court" Discussed on Newsradio 1200 WOAI
"And what has to happen is there has to be a ruling from the lower court. So these individual state courts Going to make rulings and from what I've heard in some press releases, our press conferences or little blurbs that there has been some adverse rulings. You have to have an adverse ruling before you appeal it up now because of the severity of this I'm going to skip some of the appellate process. You're not going to get to the court of appeals and every state's a little bit different. They have a review in court in this and superior court here versus the court of Appeals over here and then I believe it's going to end up in the Supreme Court now whether they consolidate cases or not. You know, from from from a state by state. If you have multiple lawsuits within a state you can consolidate within those states. But across state lines, they're very doubt and talking to Patrick in our office is going to be a consolidation across state lines. It could be a consolidation within the state. And then there's going to be those separate lawsuits going to the Supreme Court. This is goingto I don't know, George and I agree on this and Patrick as well. The lawyer in our office, this board certified in appellate law. I don't see how this avoids the Supreme Court. Just don't so this is a dumb question. But why in the world would they ask our newest justice to recuse herself from the situation isn't isn't that the sort of ridiculous that aren't they supposed to be looking at the law straight on and not being one side or another, they're supposed to look, I really get back to the representation of the justice system, which is Lady justice and is she's emulated. After an old idea of a Greek goddess Themis, the goddess of order. Our justice system is supposed to bring order. I really hate the fact that the Supreme Court has been so politicized. Really? And I use that word. Not loosely hate meaning is a strong disdain. I hate The Supreme Court has been politicized because the Supreme Court is supposed to be the arbiter when all the idiot politicians down below do other crap, and everything goes wrong down there. Then you're supposed to get you supposed to be above the fray at the Supreme Court. And you're supposed to make a ruling on the law. Not on a political party that appointed you on the law. Period. End of story. Follow the law. Follow President Go backto our founding fathers be an originalist. I wish all of them originalists. Meaning. What is the original intent of our documents? Was the original intent of the law. That's like your great great grandpa leaving our grandma leaving you A will. And there was an original idea that will and where that wanted him or her money wanted to go. And then someone down the road is not. They don't really mean that they meant something else the way lately that wasn't you that wasn't the intent of the actual will or the intent of the person that had the property. So that's what I foresee and I went back in our Supreme. I don't know if it can never come back again if you can, but I don't see how it avoids going to Supreme Court either. I am not the intrepid lawyer here in the mix, but I can tell you that I do know the Constitution. Article two of the constant does what I think is going to come down to me, and I'd love to get Patrick's thoughts on this. Was it something I said no breaking article to the Constitution empowers state legislatures to establish voting rules. For the selection of presidential electors. It doesn't empower courts to establish those rules. It doesn't empower individuals. It doesn't empower electoral boards. If you remember recently, Pennsylvania went up so nasty Supreme Court It was for four. Barrett was not on the court. Yet. She's now and John Roberts sided with the liberal Machar the liberal side and basically said, You know what? We're going to kick this back down to the states. They wanted to change the election date. They wanted to change the theater disability of balance after the election date..

"state court" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Are welcome back. Jason, this is George secure, So we'll take your phone calls. 168 4 31 says we're out yesterday with Logan taking the reins of the show. We wanted to focus your attention on a couple of things. What is The Supreme Court case out of Wisconsin. This is an interesting case because it came from a federal court, not a state court. So far, the Supreme Court because of Chief justice Roberts has been cited with state courts or whatever they really decided about with the cat, where they could accept ballots, Baylin ballots, So if it was Postmarked on Election Day. The certain time that if it was six days it was three days who was nine days they were deferring to state courts to the terminus. What what case came out of the federal courts. So Chief Justice Roberts He came up with a coarse, one of his kind of ways of getting it fixed answers similar to the affordable Care act Well, because it was a federal court, not a state court, the federal court I guess kids, you know they should be getting involved in this. Even though we're talking about us constitutional issues. That's why it's before the Supreme Court in the first place has constitutional consequences. But Justice Kavanaugh's a pitted with since this we'd have a new justice of the court, so this could be a side of how What we see places like Instagram Dad say that votes probably. We probably would have results odd, and that's that's what we think is going to be. That's normal. That's that's going to be the process. They're putting that out to everybody. It will be these kind of decisions. By the court that will determine kind of wood. We stop county votes. That's what Bush versus Gore is about. Where do we stop the recounts? Where did we stop chatting about? What do we stop looking for MME or whether we stop throwing more out? And what do we say? This is the end of the election. Exactly. So Justice Cavanaugh in the Democratic National Committee versus Wisconsin State Legislature case. On bare, the Legislature had rules and laws and regulations. Justice Cavanaugh noted that approximately 30 states, including Wisconsin require that absentee ballots be received by election day in order to be counted. That's 30 states have that so it's a majority of the states have that. This is you can because a federal district court in Wisconsin unilaterally change the state's deadline for receipt of the absentee balance, he said. Well, it's because of the pandemic, So I'm going to go to instead of November 3rd. I'm going to go to November 9th. Five justices of the Supreme Court, including Justice, the Chief justice John Roberts, I will say for the record, Andy, I told you he might get one right. He got one right, although the reasoning is still a little different. To say the least, he said. When it's a federal court trying to intervene, the federal courts can't do it. But the state courts can that's under junk. Justice Roberts Justice Cavanaugh, Justice Thomas Justice Alito Justice Gorsuch took a different view, they said. Of course, the federal courts can't do it. But the difference between the state and federal courts are not of constitutional consequence as relates to moving the dates per Balaji. So I think, Andy, we've got a framework. And then of course, we've got the unknown question, which will be and these look, We've got these cases up there now involved in Wisconsin. Excuse me, Miss Constantine decided. We've got Pennsylvania North Carolina up there, and there may be a couple of others to coming. We don't know where justice bear. It's going to be on this, but I think we have the framework. Yes, we do. I think definitely the framework has been put in place by the reasoning that Justice Kevin, I'll put forward. In Ah and doing exactly what you said. I was impressed by Justice Cavanaugh's opinion very much because what he said, is exactly what he was put on the bench to do and that's engaged in judicial restraint. He said that it is not It is not the province of a federal district cord to usurp the proper role of the state legislature in rewriting election laws in a period close to the election, a federal district court has no business, as he says, swooping in and altering, carefully considered and democratically enacted. State election rules when an election is imminent, so so that I think that shows the Judicial philosophy is the person that President Trump appointed to the court. The state legislatures decision to make changes should be, as he says, not subject to second guessing, And this is what I love, particularly by an unelected federal judiciary, which lacks the background competence on expertise to assess The public health and is not accountable to the people. So the design of electoral procedure, he says, is a legislative task and not one that federal judges should be insinuating themselves into. I'm very much impressed with the reasoning the clarity of the reasoning and the fact that he's basically told federal judges That's not where we belonged to be sticking our nose in. So the difference you have. Harry is this kind of the state court Federal court distinction now Justice Cavanaugh in a footnote, and it's a Lundy putting on Page nine of the opinion. He says. You know, there are differences between state courts and federal courts and how it comes out of those courts. But constitutionally speaking Constitutionally speaking, He writes that in a presidential elections, a state court significant departure from ledges, the legislative scheme for appointing presidential electors presents a federal constitutional question. So he disagrees with Justice Roberts So we have four votes. That would say, even if it's a state court moving these days, they can't do it. Absolutely, And I think it's a very, very important decision by Justice Cavanaugh clearly and unmistakably, he has set forth a clear rule. That neither district courts nor state courts have a unlimited right to change the rules just before an election, and it doesn't matter whether it's a federal district Court or a state court, So this is a very powerful, very influential decision. And I certainly hope that Justice Barritt follows the roadmap outlined by Justice Cavanaugh. Basically, we live in a Republic. Article Two of the United States Constitution gives state legislatures the right to control the rules. The rules have been set forth. Many judges. They are drawn to the claim that the corona virus basically aggregate constitutional standards and statutory standards that is nonsensical simply because the American people have had weeks if not months to vote. With proper social distancing. I think again we would take your phone calls at 168 4 31 2. We're asking people about how they voted their questions their concerns Lady six days until election day, and so you're going to hear lots of stories that we've got. Even at a Joe Biden's campaign. You know, if you if you see what's coming from his campaign is Victory fund Saying we're behind in the polls. You know, it shows him behind one point in Michigan to Donald Trump, four points behind in Arizona and two points down in Florida. I think the Biden campaign and and of course, that's what the DNC that's what the Victory fund is a joint joint run. They realized what MSNBC and CNN are doing by having these analysts continue to come on to talk about blowouts is not good for turnout, because, yes, there's a lot of early voting. Yes, it looks like that's favoring Democrats, but they're still going to be more votes on Election Day. And if people don't show up, they the blowout could go the other way. And so they are trying to do their own push back. I think these were made up. I don't think that these I think that they just put some red of numbers together. Dad T show that they're somehow behind because they're trying to say, Hey, we need to actually get people We have to have a group of people actually show up to vote on Election Day. Okay, So let me let me make up. Let me make a point here, and I think this is I think you're right. I mean, I think it's very all over the place and probably half meaningless, but I think it's clear I wanted to get fans beyond this kind of Washington view is the sense then a little bit. That the media hype on Biden is so strong that they're afraid that on Election Day, which is going to be a big day for Donald Trump, I don't think anybody's going to deny that the election day will be a big day. I think for the president, but he is saying that.

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.

Restoration Coalition's been raising money to help pay those deaths. And former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg has just helped raise $16 million for that fund. He supports Joe Biden against President Trump in the election, and Florida attorney general. Actually, Moody tells box she wants a state investigation. I am hopeful that the FBI also takes notice.

Yeah, I mean, this foundation was set up to be fair a couple of years ago. It's not like Bloomberg started two weeks ago with the express purpose of getting a few 1000 more votes for Joe Biden.

The argument made by the lawyers for the Legislature of the state of Florida when they defended the statute. In certain record, and I think it's a valid argument. The question is consistent with the With the Florida Constitution. That's an issue for state judges, not federal judges. They consistency between state legislation and a state constitution. It's not a federal issue, however, were the short answer. Your question is, yes. Theology ation to pay fines and seize. Sometimes he's finders are are huge. Sometimes they're restitution. You know, you broke into a bank. It's just a hypothetical you did all this damage repaired the damage. They said a state of Bill for $25,000, and you were required to make restitution of the bank as well as serving. 10 years for the bank robbery. So sometimes they're huge. Sometimes they just phenomenal. You know, you pay $150 to file a document with the court when I was on the bench. Those fees were absurd, and I often waved them.

And most importantly, I have spent hundreds of hours in prisons and jails.

How much needs to change one part of the problem with Florida. Is that OK? You're out. You're out of prison. Now. We need you to pay this restitution paid these fights, but maybe you paid it in 1993, but we don't have any record of it because the record keeping is just so horrible. So it's this this system where is set up where they literally cannot. Take care of this, even if they want to. Even Michael Bloomberg wants to do it for them many times these finds are just their symptoms of our bureaucratic bloat and and our budget dysfunction that we are living on to these people and all of those fines and restitutions, bring with them certain requirements as well..
