County GOP calls for an audit of the 2020 election results in Florida, a state that Trump won

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 21:01
Former President Donald Trump speaks at a rally at the Sarasota Fairgrounds in Sarasota, Fla., on July 3, 2021.
  • The Lake County, Fla., GOP is pressuring state Republicans to conduct an audit of the 2020 election.
  • Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has reaffirmed the integrity of the state's voting systems.
  • However, Lake County Republicans, including state Rep. Anthony Sabatini, want an electoral review.

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida and top conservative lawmakers in Tallahassee are being pushed by members of their own party to audit the 2020 presidential election results, despite former President Donald Trump's relatively comfortable win in the state last year.

DeSantis, an ally of Trump and a potential 2024 GOP presidential contender, said that Florida "did it right" in administering the 2020 presidential election, but still signed off on restrictive voting measures passed by the conservative-dominated legislature in May.

In late September, the Lake County Republican Party, based in a fast-growing and GOP-leaning jurisdiction near Orlando, unanimously approved five resolutions to send to every Florida state lawmaker in calling for a full audit of the election results.

Last fall, Trump defeated now-President Joe Biden in Florida by a 51.2% to 47.9% margin - the former president won the state with 5,668,731 votes, while the current president secured 5,297,045 votes, an advantage of more than 371,000 votes.

Biden made inroads in populous localities like Duval County, which contains Jacksonville, and Orange County, which is anchored by Orlando, but Trump overperformed with Latino voters in crucial Miami-Dade County, a longtime Democratic stronghold that the party must dominate to counter GOP advantages in the Panhandle and Southwest Florida.

The push comes as GOP state Rep. Anthony Sabatini, who represents part of the county in the Florida House, filed House Bill 99 last month, which would allow an "independent" third party to conduct a "forensic" audit of the results.

In its current form, Sabatini's bill calls for audits in counties with populations over 250,000 - meaning the proposal would affect many Democratic and minority-heavy jurisdictions like Orange, Broward, Palm Beach, and Hillsborough counties - as well as some GOP-leaning locales like Lake, Brevard, Lee, and Polk counties.

"It's not about margin of victory," Sabatini recently told Politico. "The fact is that people want total verification of the election results. They want an independent review of the votes."

The push comes as GOP legislators, encouraged by Trump, have sought a review of the results in pivotal swing states including Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Last month, a report from the group Cyber Ninjas, which for conducted a monthslong forensic audit of the results from Arizona's populous Maricopa County, showed that Biden won the state.

The former president has pressed GOP lawmakers for similar reviews in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, states that he won in 2016 but lost in 2020.

For months, Trump has alleged, without verifiable evidence, that the election was stolen from him, which has set off a cascade of GOP-led voting restrictions at the state level that have frustrated Washington Democrats who wrote their own federal election reform bills that have so far languished in Congress.

GOP Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas has come under fire for defending the push for an audit in the Lone Star State, which the former president won by nearly 6% against Biden.

None of the audits conducted so far have uncovered any instances of large-scale voting fraud.

In Florida, GOP Secretary of State Laurel Lee said that a "forensic audit" wasn't necessary because county election officials tested machines before the election and conducted random reviews after the presidential contest.

"Florida's election in 2020 was accurate, transparent, and conducted in compliance with Florida law," she said in a statement about Sabatini's bill. "Florida has already conducted both pre- and post-elections audits, and we are confident in the security and integrity of our 2020 election results."

A journalist who just won the Nobel Peace Prize called Facebook 'biased against facts' and a threat to democracy

Businessinsider - Sat, 10/09/2021 - 20:23
  • Maria Ressa, who won the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize this week, criticized Facebook's practices.
  • Facebook has struggled with misinformation rapidly spreading on its platforms.
  • The company continues to face criticism over its handling of misinformation.

Journalist and activist Maria Ressa, who received the coveted Nobel Peace Prize on Friday, criticized Facebook for spreading misinformation and lies "laced with anger and hate," the Guardian reported.

Facebook, which Ressa called the world's largest distributor of news, is "biased against facts" and "biased against journalism," posing a threat against democracy as the platform continues to allow bad actors to sow disinformation.

"If you have no facts, you can't have truths, you can't have trust. If you don't have any of these, you don't have a democracy," Ressa told the Guardian in an interview.

The Nobel Committee awarded Ressa and Russian journalist Dmitry Muratov the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize this week for their "efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace."

Ressa, CEO of independent online newspaper Rappler, was lauded by the international community after being charged and arrested by the Philippine government, supposedly in retaliation for her paper's critical coverage of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's policies and human rights violations surrounding his "war on drugs."

Though Rappler began on Facebook's platform, the Filipino journalist has been critical of Facebook on its policies toward leaders like Duterte and its role in developing countries and non-democratic regimes.

Facebook has struggled to make an impact on battling misinformation on its various platforms, including Instagram and WhatsApp. The company has spent upwards of 2.8 million hours trying to identify of false or misleading information on its platforms, and even tried to designate "expert moderators" in a bid to crackdown on misinformation.

A study found misinformation sources get six times the engagement on Facebook compared to reputable news sites, and the company previously said that misinformation and racism will "inevitably" always exist on its platforms.

This comes as a Facebook whistleblower leveled accusations against the social media giant for its negative effects on society and its ineffectiveness in tackling those issues.

The whistleblower and former Facebook employee, France Haugen, published thousands of pages of Facebook research, which touched on how Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg allows hateful content on the platform to reach more people and how the company pushes harmful attitudes around mental health and body image on teenagers.

The US government has also come down hard on the platform for not acting quicker to take down bad information, especially around COVID-19 and its vaccines.

Insider reached out to Facebook for a response toward Ressa's comments, but the company has not yet responded.
