Three Headed Eagle Alliance Issues Statement on Kane County Clerk’s July 22 Presentation

From Stephanie Moresco of Three Headed Eagle Alliance, Inc. and posted in online comments by her:

Mr. Bobby Piton is NOT part of our election integrity team, the information he presented was independent from our own research.

Having said that, we are grateful for any analysis he has done for Kane County, because it’s vitally important that all citizens work together to restore integrity.

Furthermore, what has been lost in all the rhetoric, is the fact that yes, although Aurora [Election Commission, Kane County portion] was added in [to Kane County clerk’s voter rolls for General Election 2018], which does it count for over 50,000 new registrations, it still does not explain away the fact that consistently each year, Kane County voter registration continue to increase, as the population continues to decrease, with many citizens leaving the state of Illinois (and Kane County.)

In regards to examples of just one of our grievances, the Kane County Clerk’s office cited a different Illinois election law than what other area County Clerk offices (McHenry, DeKalb) did, with regards to why VBM MUST be initialed. (Specifically, 10 ILCS 5/17 Conduct of Elections and 10 ILCS 5/19 Voting by Mail, which provides guidance for processing ballots.)

Furthermore, DuPage, Will, Lake, McHenry, Grundy, DeKalb, and Livingston ALL required VBM to be initialed by both a Democrat & Republican election judge in order to be officially counted. Any that were not initialed were “thrown out”, I.e. not counted.

Lastly, at the Public Service committee, we presented a packet that has 3 1/2 pages worth of questions, that are still left unanswered by the Kane County Clerk’s office. We have been told that we will receive a formal written response to each of those questions. Upon receipt, we would be happy to provide you a copy of our questions and their answers.

=======================

From the desk of John Lopez: It must be noted, there are 108 local election authorities in Illinois, and as long as those authorities follow state statute, they operate autonomously and may choose to do things different if the elected county clerk (or municipal administrator) chooses to do things differently.

For example, under SB 1863 (101st IL General Assembly), local election authorities were required to send vote-by-mail applications to all voters who cast ballots in one of 3 elections. The change in statute did not prevent local election authorities from exceeding the “one of 3 elections” requirements (2018 general, 2019 consolidated, 2020 primary), and both McHenry and Kane counties clerks sent applications to all registered voters on their voter rolls.

While I don’t know the specifics of other county clerks brought up by Ms. Moresco, as long as they stay within the boundaries of statute, each election authoritiy can and often operate their respective offices differently.

  1. I don’t necessarily think the increase in voters, registered or otherwise, is in any way probative or alarming.

    The population numbers are really anecdotal at best.

    I’ve seen Kane’s 2010 census as compared to 4 or 5 different estimates, all agreeing on a possible range of -1% to +1% difference.

    So it’s not that there’s some dramatic difference there.

    Increased voter numbers could also be explained by an increase in voting age demographics.

    Many that would have been otherwise attending college out of state stayed home.

    Many young professionals went back home during COVID too.

    A lot more recombined nuclear households.

    Then too, Trump’s candidacies and America’s future direction drew more interest than ever before, previously ramping up during the previous Obama candidacies for the same reason.

    As well, delays in purging the rolls of inactive voters muddies the statistical waters as well.

    I do think that the best way to proceed is with the interrogatory process under way.

    This way there are no misunderstandings as to what precisely is asked, and what is precisely answered.

    It can also be readily available to those who wish to follow along, as you offer.

    The temptation of some might be to dismiss Clerk’s replies as, “Well, they just have an answer for everything, don’t they?”

    And yet, that is precisely the Clerk’s function, so don’t be surprised if they have them.

    That new knowledge may spur more questions is without dispute.

    But do understand that eventually, there is a fine line between continuing on indefinitely or else then taking up scholarship in the matter or running for office yourselves.

    And if you do win, be aware your Office and actions on similar future matters will then be viewed through the set of lenses you’re now fashioning.

  2. Kane County and DuPage County have both grown in population over the past 10 years, NOT lost population.

    And the dissolution of the Aurora Election Commission and its absorption into the Kane County Clerk’s Election Division added tens of thousands of voters to Kane County’s rolls.

    Did the 3-Headed Loon people take these facts into account?

  3. What about Joe Joe Tirio, the RINO County Clerk or Dan ‘the Man’ Clerk Awlward. They are just as cowardly!

  4. Joe started out pretty good, but forgot about why he was ever elected against a complete crazy, line Mary McClellan….. a damnable carny freakshow.

  5. “In regards to examples of just one of our grievances, the Kane County Clerk’s office cited a different Illinois election law than what other area County Clerk offices (McHenry, DeKalb) did, with regards to why VBM MUST be initialed. (Specifically, 10 ILCS 5/17 Conduct of Elections and 10 ILCS 5/19 Voting by Mail, which provides guidance for processing ballots.)

    Furthermore, DuPage, Will, Lake, McHenry, Grundy, DeKalb, and Livingston ALL required VBM to be initialed by both a Democrat & Republican election judge in order to be officially counted.

    Any that were not initialed were “thrown out”, I.e. not counted.”

    It either is or it isn’t.

    Someone screwed up.

    Either initials were required and Kane screwed up by saying they weren’t needed OR the other counties who threw away ballots lacking initials screwed up.

    Where are the states attorneys?

    Where are the police?

    The judges?

    The media?

    Does anybody care or are we fine with just having kangaroo elections where everybody just wings it and nobody even understands the laws or procedures?

    That doesn’t sound like a very good country…

  6. Here’s an idea. Go to http://www.precinctstrategy.com.

    Become a Republican precinct committeeman.

    I have copies (to download) of all the forms to file at my website http://www.kendallcountyparty.org

    This year, you only have to get 7 signatures on a petition, starting next Jan 13, and filed between the dates Mar 7 to Mar 14, inclusively.

    Instead of going down what may be considered, by more than 90% of the people, as a rabbit hole, GET INVOLVED.

    Just some advice from a notorious troublemaking gadfly.

  7. Something that is missing in all of this discussion about Kane County, is fact when a registered voter moves out of an Illinois local election authority, that voter has to go out of their way to cancel their voter registration.

    Vivid example is wife of former state Senator Jim Oberweis.

    Any public document search with Florida voter registration for Mrs. Oberweis lists her FL voter registration with date of September 24, 2010.

    Only recently was Mrs. Oberweis’ Kane County voter registration deactivated by the Kane County clerk.

    So nearly 10 years after her FL registration made active, she is no longer an active registered voter at the Oberweis’ Sugar Grove home.

    There’s nothing illegal about having multiple active voter registrations.

    It becomes voter fraud when a voter casts a ballot in the same election in two different voter jurisdictions.

    Lauren Underwood was cleared of alleged voter fraud because she only cast a 2016 presidential primary vote in IL at her initial Will County voter registration, and not from her DC address.

  8. Were they really that grateful for Pittons analysis after they heard it?

    Just a bunch of crap.

    He’s gotta come up with hard evidence instead of the meaningless drivel during his 6 minutes in front of Kane Co.

    And then the childish name calling he was doing on a facebook live interview that had nothing to do with election fraud was ridiculous.

    Pitton needs to grow up.

    I think the election was compromised but I had high hopes for his findings…and to have to listen to this ‘nothing burger’ was more than disappointing.

  9. Underwood wasn’t cleared.

    I personally talked to the assistant DA, and he said to me, “Even if she broke the law, what makes you think I would prosecute?”

    Also, Steve Sandvoss, former head of the State Board of Elections said that she could say that she was thinking about moving back to Illinois, when she ordered the ballot.

    Unfortunately, she’s my Representative in the US House.

    She got in on a fraud (no nursing experience as advertised), and although the leadership of both parties condemned the anti-semitic filth that came (and later continued to come) out of Ilhan Omar’s mouth, Underwood in a NPR interview (conducted in March 2019), refused to comment against that filth, four times.

    It is my belief that if she couldn’t even condemn universally agreed upon anti-semitic comments, she must be an anti-Semite.

    Alas, I only know of one salutation that is deserving of an anti-semitic member of Congress.
