You can hardly stop someone from running because they have the same surname as a major party candidate.

Its obviously dirty tricks, but I don't really see how it can be prevented. Ultimately that's what the party descriptor is there for.
The surname is only part of it. Why not choose a Rodriguez who doesn't have a felony record?

Florida law prohibits felons from running for or holding office unless they've received permission from the state's clemency board. Except this guy seems to have gotten through a loophole. According to the article, the fake candidate pleaded guilty to two felonies back in 2012 but the court didn't "adjudicate the charges" - which means technically he wasn't convicted or something.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

This should put the lid on Trump's games
Quote:
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf just announced that the Keystone state has certified its 2020 general election results.

In a twitter post Tuesday morning, Wolf confirmed he'd signed the certificate for Ascertainment that formally acknowledges the state's recognition of Biden winning the election.

This will now officially award the state’s 20 electoral votes to President-elect Joe Biden.

They clearly like Trump gone and the republican senate. Provided said senate allows for stimulus.
It‘s a long shot, but depending on the January 5 vote in Georgia, the senate may split 50-50. That could prove very interesting. But yeah, Someone needs to get off the pot there and generate some stimulus.

Id be surprised if Perdue lost - even at 50/50 the Democrats are relying on Joe manchin in WV. A liberal he ain't.

There‘s always your favorite bipartisan Collins. Anyway, I hope Perdue and Loeffler loose, they both should have gone down for insider trading. But yeah, it‘s a long shot.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Another nail in Trump's symbolic coffin.
"Appearing before the Nevada Supreme Court on Tuesday morning, Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske officially certified Nevada's 2020 general election results including Biden's win"

And sort of Trump-related

YouTube has suspended the pro-Trump One America News Network from posting new videos for a week, and the outlet has had its old content demonetized after uploading a video containing misinformation about the coronavirus.
