BREAKING: NY Times Publishes Arizona Attorney's Emails Re: "Fake Electors" Plans

The New York Times this morning published 2020 emails from Phoenix attorney Jack Wilenchik about the plans to assemble "fake" electors to help stop the certification of the Electoral College count.

Wilenchik was representing AZGOP Chair - and Trump elector - Kelli Ward in her contest of the election, which was before the Arizona Supreme Court on December 8. He was also communicating with Trump attorney/advisor Boris Epshteyn (and Christina Bobb) about the cases and the plans to "sending in 'fake' electoral votes to Pence".

The emails show that Wilenchik seemed to have a clear-eyed view of both the plans and the court cases - he used emojis to clarify that it would be better to call them "alternative" votes, and that the Arizona Supreme Court was likely to deny his appeal of Superior Court Judge Randall Warner's decision.

In fact, the Arizona Supreme Court unanimously denied his appeal later that day. (As our Arizona's Law article had suggested the day before.)

Wilenchik also discussed the plan to convene the unelected Trump/Pence electors in Phoenix. He viewed it as "fake" votes to give Congress/Pence a chance to dispute election. "Kind of wild/creative", but no "legal harm" in it. (He stated that Ward raised the idea of keeping the convening of the fake slate secret and springing it on Congress and the media on January 6.)

Interestingly, one of the emails also indicates that Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs was trying to get Wilenchik to testify before the Senate on the evidence uncovered in the litigation. (This was the case where a sampling of ballots in the East Valley were inspected and found a high enough level of accuracy that, if extended, would have only changed 103 votes to Trump; not nearly enough to impact the Arizona results in Biden's favor.)

  1. I hope Paul Gosar gets sucked into this too. Wasn't he the guy that actually objected on the record and was revved up and ready to do so? Gosar needs an indictment for seditious conspiracy. He was at the Bundy revolt and stars on white power radio shows.
