Barr Authorizes DoJ To Investigate Election Fraud.

No point in doing more than simply noting this development. We know that there's been activity already, but this seems to clear the way for widespread and aggressive action. This is probably what Barr was meeting with McConnell about today. Via FR:

Barr authorizes Justice to probe 'substantial allegations' of voter fraud

Attorney General William Barr has authorized the Department of Justice to investigate any "substantial allegations" of voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Barr wrote that investigations “may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State.”

For most of the text of Barr's letter, 

AG Barr Authorizes Federal Prosecutors To Pursue ‘Substantial Allegations’ Of Voting Irregularities, Report Says

Since I'm doing a new post, I'm going to paste in some notes that I was doing re Scott Hounsell's Red State article about calling BS on Wisconsin: Excuse Me While I Call BS: In Wisconsin. These are simply some excerpts from his pithy article, but they illustrate the use of statistics. I would be utterly amazed if these stats couldn't be replicated in other swing states as well. In fact, Sergeant Friday and Yancey Ward have suggested as much. Note--the three WOW counties (Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington) are heavily GOP suburbs of Milwaukee. Dane county is ultra-Left Madison:

in Wisconsin, data suggests that there are issues that need looking into in 5 counties in particular: Washington, St. Croix, Dane, Waukesha, and Ozaukee Counties.

these are the counties in which Joe Biden beat Barack Obama’s turnout by double digits. In 57 of Wisconsin’s counties, Biden underperformed Obama’s turnout, in some counties by as much as 28%. In 37 of those counties, Biden underperformed Obama’s turnout by double digits.

In Washington County, just outside of Milwaukee, Biden overperformed Obama by 15.03%. For reference, in Milwaukee, Biden underperformed Obama by 4.57%. 

In St. Croix County which actually finds itself as more of a Minneapolis suburb, Biden beat Obama’s 2012 turnout by more than 3200 votes (16.47% increase) and Clintons turnout by 5708 Votes (or 32.65%).  Again, another massive jump that is completely unexplained as Biden underperformed the three bordering counties by 4.36%, 7.07%, and 12.43% respectively. 

In Dane County, Biden shot past Obama by 20.4%, another strange statistical bump that denies the national trend, state trend, and regional trend.  Of the 7 counties surrounding Dane, Biden underperformed Obama anywhere from 12.38% to 1.26%.

In Waukesha County, the questionable numbers continue, where Biden beat Obama’s 2012 turnout by 31.85%. 

Lastly, in Ozaukee County, Biden posted a staggering 38.39% improvement over Obama’s 2012 turnout.

What’s the point of all this?  Trump’s data follows a natural and reasonable distribution. Where Trump did better, he did better than Romney almost as a rule. When Biden did better, he did better than Clinton in every county, which is to be expected, but still lagged over Obama in the majority of counties, many bordering these massive growth counties.



  1. "...Joe Biden beat Barack Obama’s turnout by double digits."

    Hahahaha. Say that about anywhere and it's the same reaction.

  2. Is this going to be the Barr DOJ investigating these "irregularities" or the Wray FBI?

    1. Now that DJT has tossed Espy, can we hope that Wray and Haspel will soon follow?

  3. I'm with CTH on this one!!! Investigate everything, prosecute nothing.

    Yeah I know 😊

    1. IDK Devilman, wouldn't Barr be fighting for his own survival ? Or did he come out of retirement riding a white horse to only fall into a mud puddle of shame and defeat ? I think he's itching to prosecute some of the derelicts !

  4. Lol a "Tea Party favorite" quits:

    "Top DoJ Voter Fraud Investigator Quits After AG William Barr Authorizes Probe"

  5. Ok well I'm big enough to say I may have been wrong. Barr apparently struck a nerve in his announcement.

    That nerve has a infamous history of the Lois Lerner IRS variety! Good riddance!

    1. This nbcnews link leads to "Page Not Found"

    2. Sorry about the link ... Here's another. The source is irrelevant because few would cover who this guy actually is.

  6. And why would he quit with Biden-elect waiting in the wings?

  7. What a small world!

    A major anti Conservative was in charge of Voter Fraud at DOJ. What are the chances?

    The person is still in DOJ, he just moved to another position.

    Richard Pilger, Linked to IRS Scandal, Resigns DOJ Post over Voter Fraud Memo

    1. A lot of people don't get this about civil service jobs. You can refuse to do your job by resigning the position and simply be reassigned. No real consequences, paycheck still deposited every two weeks. Barr knew what he'd be dealing with, but very few in the general public do. Think of all the foot dragging going on, and people say: 'Just fire them!' Fact check: You can't fire people just because you think there's a better candidate for the job out there. Not in the civil service.

    2. And that was the point of Trump’s EO to change the civil service rules!

      Kalos irthate!

    4. Mark, civil service understood.

      Kill the departments off completely or go for a Halloween Massacre again.

      Eventually the zombie has to be addressed. By funding, by layoff, by close out, by disassembly.

      Richard Grenell had it right when he said to cast all of these agencies out into the various states and decentralize DC.

      If you unpack the box enough times the roaches from storage will eventually relocate.

    5. Would you mind explaining, specifically, how to do that?

  8. Shipwrecked has an excellent article on the resignation!

    There is a LOT more to Barr’s memo. Basically the resignee made it so no voter fraud cases could go ahead without his approval. Barr’s memo voided that power.

    Pay Not Attention to the Drama Queen At DOJ who Resigned After AG Barr Authorized Fraud Investigations

    No wonder the Democrats felt invulnerable on committing voter fraud - they knew DOJ investigations were blocked!
