The Supreme Court and the nation's judiciary "bear a lot of responsibility for the chaos that ensued" in the 2020 election through their failure to hear evidence of election irregularities and fraud, a CPAC panel of experts and commenters argued.
“It’s their job to get involved in the tough cases," Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock, one of the panelists, said, comparing the failure to a baseball umpire who fails to call a runner safe or out during the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 of the World Series, reports The Epoch Times.
"Everybody looks at the umpire, and the umpire goes, ‘why are you looking at me? I don’t want to get involved,' said Murdoch. "He turns around and walks out the door all right? So what happens? … The fans in the stands start to fight with each other and chaos ensues.”
Many of the legal cases that were filed after the election were dismissed because of procedural grounds, the panelists noted, while other cases haven't yet been resolved.
The panel also included attorney Jesse Binnall, who litigated some of the election issues; Hans Von Spakovsky, head of the Election Law Reform Initiative at the conservative Heritage Foundation; and moderator Denise Cohen from the American Conservative Union Foundation, which runs CPAC.
Von Spakovsky commented that in years past, the media would have been quick to jump on the election fraud stories, but in the 2020 election, it did the opposite and attacked people who were presenting evidence.
Binnall said Nevada's Supreme Court gave his team just two hours to file an appeals brief when normally, it would take several weeks or even months to do that.
The panel also attacked H.R.1, a House bill to relax election integrity measures, ban voter ID laws, and mandate same-day voter registration.
