Vice reports that Republicans in the state senate there hired our very own Inventor of E-mail to analyze ballots for them in their continuing effort to prove that the former president won that state when you subtract all the ballots made of bamboo.
Shiva Ayyardurai is no stranger to Arizona Republicans. Way back in November, he presented some of his very mathematical proof at a hearing there that Biden only won because he got 130 percent of the Democratic vote in all important Maricopa County.
Ayyadurai could also be picking up some spare consulting change in Wisconsin, where human anagram and former White House toady Reince Preibus recently said Republicans there were thinking of hiring Ayyadurai for a similar probe.
Ayyadurai had been spending large amounts of his time learning federal constitutional law as he sued Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin on charges that he destroyed 1 million Republican ballots stored electronically, in a state that doesn't use electronic storage for ballots, and that Galvin, his minions and Twitter used British software to build a system to knock him off Twitter and to destroy the First Amendment rights of all Americans.
But Ayyadurai cleared time on his schedule last month when he abruptly dropped that suit just as the judge was considering fining him - or worse - for the way he conducted his suit, following a hearing at which the judge used phrases such as "Fifth Amendment" and "perjury."
Another judge also made some room on his schedule by dismissing his suit against Marty Walsh and Bill Evans over that tiny little rally he and his right-wing pals had on the Common in 2017.
He still has suits pending against Robert Kennedy Jr. and a Kennedy supporter that basically center on which of them is the bigger anti-vaxxer, but court dockets show little activity in those cases. Then, this week, the state Attorney General's office gave him still more time off by rejecting his proposed 2022 ballot question to require all ballots in Massachusetts be cast only on paper with special watermarks and other special features and to post copies of everybody's ballots on publicly accessible servers.
Ayyadurai's Arizona analysis would not be the only time he's used his four degrees from MIT to try to prove that Biden lost to the actual loser.
In November, he filed an affidavit in one of the "kraken" suits, in Georgia, in which he argued his analysis showed that Biden couldn't possibly have won that state because there's just no way so many Blacks hated the Republican candidate so much that they would overwhelmingly vote for Biden, but that Whites did hate Biden so much they would have overwhelmingly voted for the Republican, so therefore, Biden lost.
The suit was, of course, dismissed. The two lawyers who brought it, Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, now face sanctions in Michigan for a kraken suit they brought there.
