The pattern of bungling, error, and plan old loss has plagued President Joe Biden and his abysmal administration for some time. It seems that it would be more of a time saver to simply report or write about the instances in which Biden doesn’t make a gaffe of some kind. Well, this article will not be an exercise on Biden not suffering an embarrassing defeat. It seems that the loss was handed fervently and happily to Biden courtesy of a judge in Delaware.
It is now being reported that:
A Delaware judge has ruled that the state’s new vote-by-mail law is unconstitutional and that no excuse, mail-in absentee ballots are not a valid form of voting in the November election.
Vice Chancellor Nathan Cook ruled the new law, which the Democrats rammed through the General Assembly in less than three weeks in June, violates a clause in Delaware’s constitution that defines when a person is allowed to cast an absentee ballot.
“Our Supreme Court and this court have consistently stated that those circumstances are exhaustive,” Cook wrote. “Therefore, as a trial judge, I am compelled by precedent to conclude that the vote-by-mail statute’s attempt to expand absentee voting must be rejected.”
The court did uphold same-day voting registration in Delaware. Cook continued:
“As I describe in this opinion, were I to construe the relevant constitutional sections and statutes on a blank slate, I would likely conclude that the plain text of the constitution, coupled with the strong presumptions in favor of constitutionality of legislative acts, lead me to a different result.
“But, in light of applicable and controlling precedent, I must find that the Vote-by-Mail Statute is unconstitutional for purposes of the general election.”
Republican Sen. Colin Bonini said:
“I think it was clear that it was unconstitutional.
“I’m disappointed that the court also didn’t strike down same-day registration.”
It was further reported by Law360 that:
“I am delighted with the decision. The Vice Chancellor took great care in reviewing Delaware’s history as well as Delaware’s case law in coming to his conclusion.
“I obviously thought that the statute was unconstitutional but to have the Court agree is very validating.
“He started on the Constitutional Convention of 1897 and worked his way through.
“During the floor debates in both houses, members of the General Assembly said that, despite testimony that the statute is unconstitutional, they were going to pass the law and let it be sorted out in the courts.
“Well it has now been sorted out.”
Jane Brady, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said:
“I believe that the legislature has known from day one that they needed a constitutional amendment to do this.
“In my view, they abdicated their responsibility.”
Plaintiff Nick Miles said:
“This lawsuit is not an attack on vote by mail.
“If the General Assembly wants permanent, noexcuse vote by mail, they should amend the constitution. People are going to try to make this a partisan issue and it is really nonpartisan.
“This is not about the virtues or flaws of vote by mail.
“This is about following the proper procedure.”
So, this seems to be the latest in a long line of defeats that Biden has been suffering lately. We reported that the former Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, had just demanded that Biden’s Department of Justice investigate Biden-lover, the New York attorney general, Leticia James. We reported that Haley made the demand in a series of tweets on Saturday, accusing James of “targeting” businesses and individuals for political gain. “This is what happens when the rule of law doesn’t matter anymore,” Haley wrote. “The Biden DOJ must open an investigation into AG James.”
It certainly doesn’t end there, but the Biden gaffe machine is certainly marching on. Follow The Raging Patriot for more on this story as it develops.
