Participant Comments – NYC Harvard Club Book Promotion - “Our Broken Elections: How the Left Changed the Way You Vote” – Feb 16

This section traditionally contains, inter alia, the monthly Short Quiz(zes) and Suggested Answers.

As explained at the beginning of this month’s Short Quiz posted in this section, its Questions are based on an EXPIRED 12/16/2020 Topic Proposal prompted by the NYC Harvard Club’s impending 12/22/2020 Zoom webinar entitled “How To Strengthen and Secure American Elections in the Wake of the 2020 Election” and featuring the nation’s foremost election-law expert, Prof. Richard H. Pildes of NYU School of Law (JD, Harvard Law School, 1983).

The reason for mentioning this here is that the 12/16/2020 Topic Proposal contained available for download three Adobe.pdf files that would, if the 12/16/2020 Topic Proposal had been accepted, have been posted in “Reference Materials” rather than “Participant Comments.”

That reason, explained (though it “beats around the bush” a bit) --


In the wake of the 2000 election litigation involving THREE U.S. Supreme Court decisions regarding the voting for President in Florida, the 2005 Carter-Baker Commission on Federal Election reform featured among its 21 members such luminaries as Lee Hamilton (Co-Chair of The 9/11 Commission) and former Senate-Democrat Leader Tom Daschle.

The Commission issued a report with 87 recommendations.

The report was approved by a vote of 20-1.

The sole dissenter was a George Washington U. Law Professor whose views were eventually embodied in a “Response to the Report of the 2005 Commission on Federal Election Reform” authored by three “Associate Counsel” at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law and by the George Washington U. Law Professor himself.

The “Response to the Report” focused primarily on “Photo ID’s” which the Commission had recommended be provided FREE for non-drivers.

Needless to say, nothing was done about Federal Election Reform.

The foregoing information about the 2005 Commission is quoted from the aforementioned “Expired Proposed Topic: How To Secure Federal Elections Post-2020.”

Its Part B is entitled “The U.S. Supreme Court’s ‘How To Steal An Election’ Manual and is available at viewtopic.php?f=150&t=2006&p=2730&hilit ... d6ac#p2730.

The Sec. 5 of Part B (which, like Part B itself, is also entitled “The U.S. Supreme Court ‘How To Steal An Election’ Manual”) comprises the foregoing quotation and the beginning of its sixth section contains THREE REFERENCE MATERIALS available for download as Adobe.pdf files --

(1) The Sep 2005 Press Release of the Commission On Federal Tax Reform.

(2) The 113-page Report of the Commission.

(3) The 33-page Response to the Commission’s Report.
