Illinois Republican whines that officials won't let him examine 2020 election ballots

The battle for a Republican audit of 2020 election ballots came to Illinois after LaSalle County Republican Chairman Larry Smith worked to get access to his county's ballots to examine the results.

President Donald Trump won the county 57 percent to 41 percent. The county is also in the district of U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), one of Trump's many GOP foes. Kinzinger won 62 to 38 against a Democratic challenger. Trump's numbers are actually better than Trump did in 2016, where he got just 54.2 percent to Clinton's 39.8 percent, so it's unknown why Republicans want to examine the results.

At issue for Smith is that Democrats State's Attorney Todd Martin and Illinois House member Lance Yednock won in 2020. The Democrats won in an election that saw overwhelming support for Republican candidates in the county, which is why Smith is concerned there was a fraud afoot. If there was, it would presumably also call into question the election of Trump and Kinzinger.

Speaking to 1430 WCMY, Smith accused County Clerk Lori Bongartz of mishandling the mail-in ballots.

Larry!

Here's a look at the Larry's LaSalle County Republican Facebook page. You may wonder what they can possibly be thinking in the Republican Party as you quickly scan the entries. They are really pounding their race hatred and Democratic hatred hard. So very strange.

That will be appropriate.

2. Obviously the Chinese have the capacity to split Republican tickets.
