Campaign attorney: Trump won Nevada, despite Biden results

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Donald Trump campaign attorney declared the Republican president won in Nevada, not Joe Biden, despite results showing the Democratic former vice president drew 33,596 more votes in the battleground state.

“Donald Trump won … after you account for the fraud and irregularities that occurred,” campaign attorney Jesse Binnall told reporters as he announced a new lawsuit asking a state judge to declare Trump the winner or to invalidate the presidential vote results.

With lawsuits flying in Nevada, Binnall castigated Clark County election officials; declared the campaign and state Republican Party can prove 40,000 tainted votes, or enough to make up the approximately 2.4% vote difference Biden and Trump; and said media declarations that Biden won Nevada were wrong.

The Associated Press on Nov. 7 declared Biden the winner of Nevada’s six electoral votes. State election figures show Biden with 50.06% of the vote, and 47.67%

Data at core of cybersecurity frameworks, laws and compliance

The data that public and private organisations capture and use, as well as its sensitivity, risk, and protection, are central not only to international cybersecurity best practice, but also to laws and regulation.

Information and communication technology (ICT) and law experts indicate that data, as a valuable asset for organisations and often containing personal and sensitive information, is fundamental to determining the risks, suitable protection and management of data that must be undertaken by organisations.

South Africa’s digital interactions and cybersecurity, notwithstanding the Cybercrimes Bill 2017 that has not yet been adopted, are currently governed by the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act (ECTA No 25 of 2002), as well as the Protection of Personal Information Act (Popi Act No 4 of 2013), says law firm Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr (CDH) technology, media and telecommunications practice director Preeta Bhagattjee.

While civil and criminal charges for cybercrimes can be laid against people

Wisconsin issues recount order sought by Trump in two counties | US & Canada

The Wisconsin Elections Commission issued an order Thursday to recount more than 800,000 ballots cast in two heavily liberal counties at President Donald Trump’s request.

The order, required by law after Trump paid $3m for the recount, was agreed to after rancorous debate for more than five hours on Wednesday night that foreshadows the partisan battle ahead.

“It’s just remarkable the six of us in a civilised fashion can’t agree to this stuff,” Democratic commissioner Mark Thomsen said hours into the debate. The commission is split 3-3 between Democrats and Republicans.

The recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties, where Joe Biden outpolled Trump by a more than two-to-one margin, will begin Friday and must be completed by December 1.

Milwaukee County officials said they plan to finish the recount by Wednesday. Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell has not provided an estimated completion date.

Biden won statewide by 20,608 votes. Trump’s

Trump campaign lawyer Linda Kerns withdraws from federal election suit

Shortly before Donald Trump’s legal surrogates took the stage at a press conference to promote the president’s still unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud, a Philadelphia lawyer who briefly helmed the campaign’s main election lawsuit in Pennsylvania withdrew from the case.

Linda Kerns, a local GOP election lawyer and longtime voter ID proponent, managed a string of legal challenges on behalf of the campaign, and worked on the federal suit seeking to overturn the state’s election results. That suit, filed in the Middle District of Pennsylvania, broadly seeks to invalidate Democrat Joe Biden’s victory in the Keystone State on procedural grounds.

Kerns sought to withdraw as counsel shortly after Pittsburgh-based firm Porter Wright Morris & Arthur abandoned the case last week. Harrisburg attorney Marc Scaringi and Rudolf Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and Trump’s personal lawyer, replaced the firm.

Judge Matthew Brann initially denied Kerns’ request on the

No-party candidate in SD 37 hires attorney amid investigation

A no-party candidate who ran in a Miami Senate race has retained legal counsel as state prosecutors investigate his candidacy.

Alex Rodriguez received more than 6,300 votes in the race for Senate District 37 and likely cost incumbent Democrat José Javier Rodríguez, who shared the same surname, his seat. Republican Ileana Garcia won the race by 34 votes after a manual recount. More than 215,000 votes were cast in the election.

Alexis Pedro Rodriguez, whose name on the ballot appeared as Alex Rodriguez, confirmed to a Miami Herald reporter at his Boca Raton home Wednesday that he lived in Palm Beach County and wanted to run for state Senate in Miami because as a Miami native, “it’s always something I wanted to do.”

AP Sources: FBI Is Investigating Texas Attorney General | Political News

By JAKE BLEIBERG, Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) — The FBI is investigating allegations that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton broke the law in using his office to benefit a wealthy donor, according to two people with knowledge of the probe.

Federal agents are looking into claims by former members of Paxton’s staff that the high-profile Republican committed bribery, abuse of office and other crimes to help Austin real estate developer Nate Paul, the people told The Associated Press. They insisted on anonymity to discuss the investigation because it is ongoing.

Confirmation of the criminal probe marks mounting legal peril for Paxton, who’s denied wrongdoing and refused calls for his resignation since his top deputies reported him to federal authorities at the end of September.

A criminal defense attorney for Paxton, Philip Hilder, declined to comment. Spokespersons in the attorney general’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Giuliani in Public: ‘It’s a Fraud.’ Giuliani in Court: ‘This Is Not a Fraud Case.’

Hi. Welcome to On Politics, your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host.

Fifteen days after President Trump lost the election, there is no indication that any significant voter fraud took place.

That hasn’t stopped the president and his supporters from making all kinds of claims to the contrary. Over the past two weeks, there has been a whole lot of shouting, a deluge of legal filings and plenty of denial from Mr. Trump and his allies.

What there hasn’t been? Any real evidence that the election was unfairly decided.

The clearest tell that Mr. Trump’s effort is a security blanket and a prayer strategy is the difference between what Mr. Trump’s supporters say in the press and what they say in court.

On Nov. 7, the day most media outlets called
