Secretary of State Jena Griswold has filed a lawsuit against current Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters to prevent her from running elections in that county. Peters is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) for her failure to protect the voter data computer password from people unauthorized to access the information.
An investigation by the Secretary of State’s office also determined that Peters told county staff to turn off required video surveillance a week before a routine May 25 software update to the county’s election system and that it wasn’t restored until July.
Peters, a Republican, has slammed the Secretary of State’s probe and has perpetuated former President Donald Trump’s “Big Lie” that fraud occurred in the 2020 election. She has refused an order issued by Griswold to turn over election equipment, video footage, and documents after a password to the county election equipment surfaced online. That caused Griswold to declare that the election equipment would need to be replaced because the chain of custody could not be verified.
In the lawsuit, Griswold, a Democrat, also asks the Mesa County District Court to appoint a two-person team to handle the election. She named former Secretary of State Wayne Williams, the Republican she unseated in the election three years ago, as the county’s designated election official. She named Mesa County Treasurer Sheila Reiner, Peters’ Republican predecessor as county clerk, as elections director.
P.S. to above comment: Lindell always pushes his product line at the end of his “lectures” or whatever you call them, and these people continue to send lots of money his way. We’ve now heard for months and months about his “Absolute Proof.” He rambled on and on at his convention, and showed nothing. Well, if you have some evidence, bring it forward, take it to a high court, something. Therefore, I am resigned to believing there is nothing there. Why people continue to believe he has some evidence that he is STILL waiting for just the right time to bring out is beyond me. Tina Peters went into hiding . . . why? Since “liberals” are generally doves about war, and don’t use our guns to make points, what is she hiding from? In this question, I have found a response.
Recent reporting indicates that Lindell is being played for a fool by an extremist political/religious organization called “The Family”, to such a point that he has begun selling off his assets in order to fund his damaging misadventure, and to pay for all the lawyers he needs now.
No wonder he never stops pushing his pillows, regardless of the forum. The man obviously needs the money.
Peters was a guest at Mike Lindell’s latest clown convention, which tells you everything you need to know about her grasp of reality.
If anyone reading this somehow still thinks that Lindell is anything more than a pillow-selling, goalpost-moving grifter, you should know that his own “elections expert” has been on Twitter recently, explaining how Lindell’s so-called evidence is actually no evidence at all.
The nicest thing you could say about Lindell at this point it that he lacks the required technological sophistication to understand how badly he is being played for a fool by whoever is providing his so-called “evidence”. The fact that so many people can watch an obvious con man like Trump and a babbling goof like Lindell and somehow see them as believable and worthy of respect still baffles me.
