.....I have not forgotten you all still believe James O'Keefe is the one who EXPOSED LAMONE..... (It's been me all along. The evidence proves that too)!😎

👉🏽 Here is a social media post I MADE IN 2019..... That includes some newsprint and stories from even further back - 2006?!?!

Let's start here ( I have provided the full transcript below so when the link gets scrubbed, this record remains):


Bob Ehrlich: We Can't Back Down in the Fight for Voter Integrity

August 23, 2019 at 9:07am

"The State of Maryland has issued new requirements for some Marylanders with older drivers’ licenses to supply additional personal identification in order to avoid revocation — former governors not exempted!

The additional requirements are all about submitting the proper paperwork to the DMV in order to comply with the federal “Real ID Act.” In the real world, it means that one will be able to access federal buildings and board commercial aircraft.

Little controversy surrounds the new requirement. It’s all common sense. Why would a free society not have stringent requirements in order to secure a reliable ID card? After all, in today’s society, it’s nearly impossible to do anything (or go anywhere) without one.

I thought about the new identification requirements while reading about the burgeoning popularity of “ballot harvesting” — the relatively new practice of collecting and submitting absentee or mail-in ballots by volunteers (union workers, campaign workers, etc.).

Yes, you read that right. It is now permissible in 19 states to “harvest” votes in this manner. Those (like me) who have expressed strong views on ballot security over the years are more than mildly perturbed. And it almost goes without saying that those of us who prefer to see only living, legal citizens on the voter rolls, and who readily provide proof of our identity at the polls, are (you guessed it) labeled as “racists” by progressives and their media allies.

The by-now-familiar indictment alleges that requiring valid proof of identity at the ballot box discriminates against minority voters, who allegedly have less access to the ways and means of securing state-issued identity cards. And this during an era wherein even states with stringent federal ID requirements have gone the extra mile to accommodate lesser-served populations in their quest for a photo ID.

Nevertheless, the accusation lives because it fits the popular leftist narrative: Republicans will attempt to suppress the African-American vote at every opportunity and at any cost.

GOP initiatives aimed at forcing local election officials to purge dead or otherwise ineligible voters from the voter rolls are likewise labeled unfair, discriminatory and racist. (Which brings up the old line that Republicans want scrubbed voter rolls because the deceased always vote a straight-line Democratic ticket.) Still, a number of recent court decisions have forced local election officials to clean up their act — and their rolls.

Against this backdrop of distrust and unsupported innuendo comes the harvesting initiative. To be fair, the GOP does not have completely clean hands here: a North Carolina GOP operative was accused of illegal harvesting in the 2016 general election and 2018 Republican congressional primary in District 9. Seems North Carolina-style harvesting is limited to family members or legal guardians.

Still, the questionable practice really took off this past November when California Democrats pulled off seven Orange County, California (traditionally a GOP stronghold) House seats in the 2018 midterms.

You see, California’s more liberal harvesting statute (excuse the redundancy) allows anyone to pick up and deliver absentee ballots from the field to the poll. Proponents insist it is an appropriate practice for people who have mobility issues or lack access to post offices; opponents see it more as an invitation to fraud.

And, if you dare oppose this preferred remedy to the problem of poor voter turnout, then you are nothing more than a dirty denier of our most cherished right — and, of course, a racist to boot.

The only way common sense loses this debate is to back down — to let the usual race-conscious suspects capture the moral high ground and stay there.

I, for one, prefer to win on this one. Voting integrity is fundamental to free and fair elections. Just plain ole folks showing up with bundles of votes in tow does not scratch my itch. In fact, it makes me downright suspicious. The bottom line: voters who care about election integrity must not be intimidated, lest a batch of questionable ballots arrives to cloud yet another election day.

By the way, if you think the national Democratic Party does not see this initiative as an absolute priority, think again. The number attached to a congressional bill can mean something. House Bill 1 of the new Congress seeks to federalize election law oversight and require every state to implement a vote by mail system. Each will aid in the adoption of vote harvesting. Informed is forewarned.

Now, get to work spreading the word about this latest affront to our mainstream values…".

By Bob Ehrlich  

🤔 WHAT HAPPENED BOB, looks like for ALL the political bluster you "BACKED DOWN"!

When he was Governor he did the same thing Hogan did ... requested LINDA LAMONE'S presence at the Board of Public Works to explain why she ran ANOTHER FAILED Election cycle..... Then gave her MORE MONEY! (Just like Hogan, who has even ignored the MDRIEC REPORT).

♦️ I PUBLISHED THE Maryland State Republican Election Integrity Committe REPORT & RECOMMENDATIONS - OCTOBER 2017.... Stay focused now 🧐


Letter to Linda H. Lamone, State Administrator Maryland State Board of Elections from then Governor Bob Ehrlich, Sept. 14, 2006....Four years AFTER HE WAS ELECTED.

Linda H. Lamone, State Administrator

Maryland State Board of Elections

P.O. Box 6486

Annapolis, Maryland 21401

Dear Ms. Lamone:

The citizens of Maryland deserve an election system that has a free, open and undeterred process to cast a ballot and that gives voters confidence that their vote will be accurately counted.

The problems encountered by our citizens during Tuesday's Primary Election are unacceptable especially in light of the funding and resources that I have approved based upon your requests. I intend to commit the additional resources necessary to ensure that these problems do not reoccur in the General Election.

The problems encountered Tuesday raise questions about insufficient training, management and oversight of Maryland elections. Repeatedly, over the past year, I have expressed severe reservations about the Diebold voting machines, the new electronic poll-books and the implementation and training requirements under the direction and leadership of the State Administrator.

The Governor's Commission on the Administration of Elections raised similar concerns about Maryland's rush to implement electronic technology without sufficient training, management and oversight. These concerns were raised because of a sincere commitment to ensuring the integrity of the election process in Maryland.

In spite of these reservations, I have fully approved without delay your requests for funding and resources deemed necessary for your agency to implement the 2006 elections in a smooth and efficient manner. You repeatedly reassured the Board of Public Works that the various elections systems would operate without problems and that sufficient time existed for the state to guarantee that all necessary training had been completed prior to Election Day. Contrary to your statements, the State and some local Boards of Elections encountered major problems in the conduct of the Primary Election last Tuesday.

We have received numerous reports from citizens and elections professionals expressing concerns about systematic problems, especially with the electronic poll-book technology. While the focus of media attention has been on the problems in Montgomery County and Baltimore City, we believe that there were widespread planning,

To this end, I request that you appear before the Board of Public Works at its regularly-scheduled meeting at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 20, to discuss the issues pertaining to the implementation of the electronic voting systems contracts. Over the past four years, you have appeared before the BPW numerous times regarding the contracts totaling $106 million. Each time, you have assured (and reassured) the Board members that the system was secure and would provide for a smooth and efficient process for election administration.

Again, I commit to providing whatever funding and resources are necessary to safeguard the integrity of the General Election process and I look forward to seeing you next Wednesday.

Very truly yours,

Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.

♦️BOTH the op-ed and his letter skimmed over the point....

THE PROBLEM OF ELECTION FRAUD is not the's the personnel at the Election Board AND HE KNOWS IT! As does Hogan!

I'll give Bob credit, BUT AS A LAWYER & GOVERNOR AT THE TIME, he should have known the process that empowers the Governor "to remove" LAMONE for "incompetence"...... something she has been demonstrating for decades!

♦️The Lord and most of you ought to know THAT State Law, because I'VE CITED IT A MILLION TIMES...I'm skipping this time. (If y'all would only listen, learn and act)! #NewtonSaidIt


✳️(Remember that State Law I keep citing about the authority "to remove" for INCOMPETENCE) ⁉️ But her lawyer IS ALSO THE MARYLAND ATTORNEY GENERAL.....No conflicts there {sarcasm}.

♦️BUT the problem still exists. They all know it. The compromised Maryland Judiciary and the State Attorney General protects them and unless these "politicians" are willing to go beyond writing op-eds and posturing, THE SAME PROBLEM WILL CONTINUE.....

♦️Look at the timeline♦️

✳️ PS- guess who sits as CHAIRMAN on the Maryland Attorney Grievance Commission, that holds power over judge's and lawyer's law licenses?

Linda Lamone -State Board of Elections!
