Videotape Reveals Early Corporate-Funded Plans To Try To Overturn A Trump Loss

10/30/2020 10:09 pm ET Updated 2 hours ago

The right-wing group behind the “Stand your ground” laws began working in February to challenge a Trump election defeat.

By Mary Papenfuss

A powerful corporate-funded right-wing organization that includes state legislators and lobbyists was already mobilizing early this year to overturn a possible election loss by President Donald Trump, according to a videotape of an official discussing the plan.

“Obviously we all want President Trump to win,” said Lisa Nelson, chair of the controversial American Legislative Exchange Council, which was responsible for getting the at-times-lethal “Stand your ground” laws enacted in several states.

“Really what it comes down to is the states and the state legislators,” Nelson noted in remarks in February, recorded in a videotape obtained by Documented, a watchdog group that tracks corporate influence on public policy.

Nelson and three Republican attorneys were already drafting letters then “questioning the validity” of a Trump loss that state legislator members of ALEC could submit to local officials to challenge the ballots.

Following this election we need to start pushing to help elect dem candidates at the state level. We have the momentum..we should never ever again take our foot off the gas!

9. This is why every single vote counts..

If we don’t all place ballots, we’ll eventually have to trade votes with our blood.
