Virginia Democrats had filed a lawsuit against USPS complaining about a “delay” of 300,000 mail-in votes just days before election officials and mainstream media outlets began priming the public for a scenario in which the results of the gubernatorial election may not be decided on Election Day due to mail-in ballots.
The Elias Law Group, a firm recently hired by the Terry McAuliffe campaign headed by Clinton-allied attorney Marc Elias, filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Democratic Party of Virginia on Friday October 22 against the United States Postal Service (USPS) citing a “delay” of over 300 thousand mail-in ballots in the gubernatorial race.
“With Election Day less than two weeks away and more than 300,000 Virginians likely to attempt to cast their votes by mail, the failure of the United States Postal Service…to timely process and deliver election-related mail is threatening to disenfranchise thousands of Virginia voters,” the lawsuit claimed.
“Thousands of absentee ballots currently sit at postal facilities throughout the Commonwealth, unprocessed for weeks on end.”
The USPS maintains they have a “robust and tested process for the proper handling and timely delivery of Election Mail.”
“Our Election Mail processes and procedures are fully operational in Virginia. We are not aware of any processing delays of any ballots within our facilities nor any ballot delivery delays, and we have fully communicated this information to election officials,” USPS public relations representative Martha Johnson told The Washington Times.
Just days after the lawsuit was filed, corporate media outlets and partisan election officials began priming Virginia voters for a post-Election Day debacle in which the winner of the race may be unknowable until the following Friday due to mail-in ballots.
In Virginia, as was the same for the 2020 Presidential Election, mail-in votes are for some reason allowed to be counted if they are postmarked by the end of Election Day and received three whole days after the election.
Last year, 300,000 votes for Joe Biden were counted in a series of five suspicious ballot drops in the dead of night after Election Day in Virginia, with one of those dumps accounting for a staggering 73% of all Biden votes in Fairfax County.
As a result of the 308,000-vote ballot dump, Biden appeared to have defeated President Donald Trump by a margin of 80% in Virginia’s most populous county, vastly and suspiciously outperforming failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
