Another federal judge slapped down top Democrat operative and prime Russia collusion hoaxer Marc Elias this week for attempting to undermine free and fair elections, this time in New York.
“This is a Hail Mary pass, the object of which is to take a long shot try at having the New York primaries conducted on district lines that the state says are unconstitutional,” U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan wrote.
In a 17-page complaint, Elias, who is infamous for using deception, lies, and money to meddle with U.S. elections and push Democrats to the top, used his law firm to ask the district court to reconsider the Democrat-drawn House maps which would likely grant the leftist party three extra seats in the 2022 midterms.
Instead of reinstating the Democrat-drawn lines rejected by the state Court of Appeals, Kaplan, who was appointed to his bench by former President Bill Clinton, shunned the Democrats for trying to erode “free, open, rational elections [and] respect for the courts.”
“In the 102 years since my father, then a Ukrainian refugee, came into this country, if there were two things that he drilled into my head, they were … free, open, rational elections [and] respect for the courts,” Kaplan wrote. “The relief that I’m being asked to give today impinges, to some degree, on the public perception of both. And I’m not going to do that.”
As detailed in Federalist Editor in Chief Mollie Hemingway’s book “Rigged,” Elias helped orchestrate the effort to change hundreds of election laws and processes in the months leading up to the 2020 election in order to flood elections with tens of millions of mail-in ballots. The changes were then exploited by left-wing groups funded by hundreds of millions of dollars from Mark Zuckerberg to run Democrat Get-Out-The-Vote operations from inside government election offices.
Elias’ most recent berating is far from the first time his election meddling tactics were shunned or completely rejected by a court. In January, a federal court refused to grant Elias’s request to rescind their sanctions against him for deceiving judges in his attempts to fight Republicans in Texas who banned straight-ticket voting in the 2020 election. Two of the three judges on the original panel agreed to sanction Elias and his team for purposefully lacking “candor” in a courtroom setting.
Shortly before that, Elias led the Democrat charge to target election integrity laws in Arizona. The case went all the way to the Supreme Court where, in a 6-3 decision, justices sided with the Republican-controlled state.
Special Counsel John Durham also recently alleged that Elias, who represented Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign and funded the discredited Steele Dossier designed to hurt Donald Trump in 2016, falsely depicted Fusion GPS’ work product as legal work.
“The factual record and Fusion GPS’s own communications raise serious questions about this depiction,” Durham wrote.
Elias’s former law partner Michael Sussmann was indicted for lying to the FBI. Both Democrat attorneys are named in former President Donald Trump’s recent collusion hoaxer lawsuit.
