Our focus is creating awareness in the totality of the election process and then refocus on idividual swing states where the chances of election fraud are the greatest.This is true where early voting is allowed because the opposition can calculate just how many votes they have to steal.

These states will be constantly reviewed for changes, positive and negative, of election integrity developments.
Our web site will be updated to reflect current developments.
No matter the quality of the candidate or the campaign, if the election is stolen, #America and #the Constitutional Republic lose.
The Executive Branch Ethics Commission of Kentucky has finally completed its investigation of Democrat Alison Grimes, a former secretary of state who ran an unsuccessful campaign for Senate against Sen. Mitch McConnell in 2014.
In a unanimous vote, the commission has fined her $10,000 for abusing “her position and influence” to provide 18 Democratic candidates with official, confidential voter lists violating state law in an apparent attempt to aid their political campaigns.
The commission opened its investigation in 2021 after her father, Gerald “Jerry” Lundergan, a former state representative and former chairman of the Kentucky Democratic Party, was convicted of violating federal campaign finance laws.
Along with a political consultant, who was also convicted, Lundergan illegally funneled more than $200,000 from one of his companies to his daughter’s Senate campaign. He sought to appeal his conviction to the U.S. Supreme Court, which rejected the appeal in May 2022.
When she was running against the Republican McConnell, Grimes was Kentucky’s secretary of state and remained in that office until 2020.
She was never charged in the federal prosecution involving her father and claimed she did not know about the “day-to-day operations” of her own Senate campaign or the illegal corporate financing by her father.
But she was charged with violating Kentucky’s state ethics laws for her misbehavior while she was secretary of state. The commission’s “Final Order,” which was issued on May 19, details its findings that were based on “clear and convincing evidence,” including Grimes’ admissions, documents such as email communications, and “facts that the parties do not dispute.”
Grimes ordered her staff to “download information from the Voter Registration System onto flash drives,” including “lists of newly registered voters.” The “purpose of downloading the information was to distribute voter lists to selected Democratic Party candidates.” That said,
the commission “is undisputed.”
None of the forms that the law requires to be completed by anyone requesting voter information were completed, and none of the fees that state law imposes were charged to those Democratic candidates.
Moreover, the candidates were provided with “personal information” of voters that state law prohibits being released.
Grimes tried to claim as a defense that she was responding to an open records request under state law. But as the commission pointed out, the information she distributed electronically to the Democratic Party candidates is protected from disclosure under the Open Records Act of Kentucky.
Moreover, Grimes couldn’t prove that her office ever received an open records request. No “Open Records request forms” were in the file, and “no evidence documenting receipt of an Open Records request.”
The commission did not call Grimes a liar, but it said that her defense that she was responding to an open records request was “incredible and implausible.” It was “processed contrary to law because personal information was released,” even if she had been, and none of the required forms or fees were completed or charged.
Grimes could not plead ignorance of the law, according to the commission. She “conferred that benefit knowingly”—providing Democratic candidates with voter lists to which they were not entitled, violating state law. She was “not laboring under a good faith misunderstanding of the law” since the Kentucky statutes governing this are “unambiguous,” and the secretary of state “would know the requirements of the law she administered.”
It “would be disingenuous and incredible to suggest that she did not.”
She also knew the rules governing voter information “from personal experience because as a candidate,” when she was running for office, “requested voter lists from the Secretary of State’s Office and paid the required fees.”
She would know that “Open Records requests require redaction of personal information.”
Grimes said the commission “had to know she was providing information to which the recipients were not entitled.” In its dry, legal, straightforward exposition of the facts, the commission makes it very clear that Grimes knowingly violated Kentucky law as a government official in partisan actions intended to help candidates of her political party.
Kentucky is lucky that Grimes is no longer its secretary of state, a position that, because it administers elections, requires honest, ethical officials. And the state’s residents are fortunate that someone willing to engage in such dishonest behavior is not their U.S. senator.
Grimes joins her father in the annals of Kentucky’s political history as another unethical politician willing to abuse her position of public trust, as the commission concluded, to “confer a benefit and advantage” to her political friends and allies.
