A federal judge dismissed Sidney Powell ‘kraken’ lawsuit alleging widespread voter fraud in Georgia on Monday.
Powell brought lawsuits on behalf of Republican plaintiffs in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Arizona, according to Forbes. The lawsuits allege widespread fraud and seeks to overturn the election results.
The suit repeated Powell’s claim that voting machine company, Dominion conspired with Georgia authorities and the late Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez to rig the election by flipping votes from Trump to Biden.
The George W. Bush appointed U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Batten, dismissed the case saying Powell’s request to completely reject the election results was the most “extraordinary relief ever sought in any federal court in connection with an election: they want this court to substitute its judgement for that of 2.5 million Georgia voters who voted for Joe Biden.” The judge said he’s “unwilling” to do that.
Her case in Michigan was dismissed as well.
“To be perfectly clear, Plaintiffs’ equal protection claim is not supported by any allegation that Defendants’ alleged schemes caused votes for President Trump to be changed to votes for Vice President Biden,” Obama appointed U.S. District Court Judge Linda V. Parker said in a ruling Monday.
“Plaintiffs ask this court to ignore the orderly statutory scheme established to challenge elections and to ignore the will of millions of voters. This, the court cannot, and will not, do,” Judge Parker wrote.
