Judge Dismisses Trump Fake Elector Case Against Republicans In Nevada

 A Clark County judge on Friday dismissed the charges filed against the six Nevada Republicans who were accused of submitting fraudulent electoral votes for former President Donald Trump in 2020 election.

Clark County District Court Judge Mary Kay Holthus dismissed the case because she said that it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction.

“I can’t see jurisdiction here. I can’t see it. I can’t see how I have any jurisdiction in this case,” she said, adding: “You have literally, in my opinion, a crime that has occurred in another jurisdiction. It’s so appropriately up north and so appropriately not here.”

Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford, a Democrat, claimed that the judge “got it wrong” and said that his office would appeal the ruling at the state Supreme Court, The Nevada Independent reported.

The report noted that the state cannot refile the case because the three-year statute of limitations expired at the end of last year.

A lawyer for one of the defendants said that the state’s prosecution was “done.”

A grand jury in the Eighth Judicial District Court in Clark County indicted Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald, national committeeman Jim DeGraffenreid, Clark County Republican Party chair Jesse Law, state party vice chair Jim Hindle III, Shawn Meehan, and Eileen Rice in December of last year.


All six individuals were indicted on two felony counts of offering a false instrument for filing and uttering a forged instrument by submitting fraudulent documents to state and federal officials. The two felony charges were category C and D felonies, respectively, and carried a maximum of four years and five years in prison.

Other states — all of them swing states — are prosecuting Republicans who were allegedly involved in what Democrat prosecutors have claimed were similar schemes, including Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, and Arizona.
