A New Mexico county commissioner, awaiting sentencing for his January 6 conviction, said Thursday that he plans to defy a state Supreme Court order and will not vote to certify the results of a recent primary election in a flareup over vote-tallying machines that's drawing attention and alarm from national voting rights advocates.

"The State Supreme Court on Wednesday, acting on an emergency request from New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver, a Democrat, ordered the Otero County commissioners to certify the primary results by Friday -- the statutory deadline for county certification. The commissioners had declined to do so earlier in the week, citing distrust of Dominion voting machines.

Griffin, a founder for Cowboys for Trump, was found guilty in a March bench trial of trespassing on US Capitol grounds on January 6, 2021, while then-Vice President Mike Pence was there. He is scheduled to be sentenced Friday in Washington."

Throw this person in prison and give him an outrageous amount of money.

Make an example of this person or the next one will act twice as outlandishly.

Problem in America is, conservatives reward bad behavior.

Acting against the Constitution (state and federal) is OK when you're supposedly trying to save said Constitution.

You gotta burn it all down so you can rule over the ashes.

If New Mexico's Secretary of State has her way all three of them are going to be fired anyway just for pjssing her off with their ridiculous nonsense.

Some of these contrarians still think their loyalty to Trump is going to reap them rewards. LOL ~ SUCKERS!

It's the strangest thing, my wife and I have been talking about it for a long while now - It is like a solid half the people out there have become unhinged. Gobbling conspiracy theory and fake news like their lives depend on it. I never thought there were so many dumb and gullible people out there.

Are those the same machines used to elect those commissioners? Perhaps they should all question whether they were rightfully elected. Maybe their elections shouldn't have been certified and they are illegitimate.

Trump Nation will stop at nothing to tighten their grip on political power. They disregard rules and laws they don't like and make it up as they go. And the dim bulbs who watch Fox all day never question whether it's legal, moral or damaging to the America they claim to love.

#10-GPete-my wife & I have been full-time in an RV for 8 & 1/2 years, traveling mainly around west of the Miss. Rather than unhinged, we call it the loss of ability to discern fact from fiction. In any case, what the hell happened to these people?

Screams, threats as New Mexico counties try to certify vote

...Deep-seated conspiracy theories about the security of voting machines erupted into heated, angry and at times threatening outbursts Friday as New Mexico counties decided whether to certify results from their recent primary, underscoring the depths of an election crisis that officials fear is foreshadowing darker times ahead for the nation's democracy.

In one politically conservative county, angry residents greeted their three commissioners with screams and vitriol as they met to consider certification. As the visibly frustrated Torrance County commissioners indicated they were going to vote to certify their election, the audience shouted "Shame on you," "cowards and traitors," and "Who elected you?"

The commissioners pleaded with the audience for patience and said concerns about alleged election vulnerabilities eventually would be addressed.

"The time and place to fight this battle is not by canvassing this election," Chairman Ryan Schwebach told the crowd....

When they paraded the confederate flag thru our capital suddenly the faint echoes of "the south will rise again" were not so faint any more.

"Take America back" and "Make America Great Again" are just code words.

Take America back to what? No maggot can actually answer that question without revealing their true intentions.

An oversimplification of root of the problem as I imagine that Reconciliation never really worked in America and we are still trying to reconcile our National differences. And in the "south" there is apparently a whole bunch of sore losers and are still basically sore about being forced to give up their "property" and their attacking of our democracy is some type of "revenge".
