A small group of [Kane County] Republicans, based mainly in the Campton Hills area, have spent the past couple months pushing county officials to have an independent, third-party, forensic audit of the 2020 election. The request is based on the group’s interpretations of election data posted on the Kane County clerk’s website and anecdotal experiences posted on conservative social media. […]
[Kane County Clerk Jack Cunningham, a Republican] said all of the concerns are attributable to the group not understanding the election data or attaching worries about fraud that aren’t supported in reality. The 2020 election saw multiple recounts and intense examination after the close 14th Congressional District contest. Nothing illegal or unethical was found to have happened at any point, he said. […]
Republican Party Chairman Ken Shepro, who also serves on the county board, said his examination of the questions and suggested fraud lost all credibility when the major allegation about an impossible growth in the number of registered Kane County voters “carelessly” didn’t account for the dissolution of Aurora Election Commission and Kane County absorbing those voters.
Oh, for crying out loud.
There’s more, so go read the rest if you want a good look at the extent of ignorant conspiracy mongering in this state.
