Biden’s Nominee for FEC Claimed Voting Machines in Georgia Switched Votes in 2018 Governor’s Race

President Joe Biden’s recent nominee to the Federal Election Commission represented a group backed by Stacey Abrams in a lawsuit alleging voting suppression on multiple unsubstantiated grounds, Fox News informed.

Dara Lindenbaum, the nominee, also signed court documents alleging that voting machines “switched” ballots during the 2018 election for governor of Georgia.

Lindenbaum, a lawyer with the Washington firm of Sandler, Reiff, Lamb, Rosenstein & Birkenstock, was confirmed by the Senate Rules and Administration Committee to be a commissioner on the Federal Election Commission. Fair Fight Action and Care in Action v. Raffensperger commenced in U.S. District Court in Atlanta a few days later.

Lindenbaum’s signature appears as the third on the original complaint in the suit filed for voter suppression in the governor’s election, in which Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp defeated Abrams by 55,000 votes statewide.

The suit mentioned two voters who said they needed to vote for Abrams four times on the voting machine because it identified Kemp the first three times. It said that on one occasion, a voter “was only allowed to cast a ballot for Leader Abrams after her fourth attempt.” Another voter, according to the complaint, “continued pressing Abrams and, by the fourth time, the system eventually corrected.”

In an additional action filed on Dec. 3, 2020, the plaintiffs focused on charges of insufficient poll worker training and data on the voter registration lists. The prior charges involving voting devices were removed from the amended complaint.

Carr said for Fox News, that the FEC was meant to be an impartial organization that instills trust in the elections, adding that Lindenbaum has  spent the last four years fabricating false accusations about voter suppression and promoting conspiracy theories. Carr also said that she was an assistant in fundraising the push for Fair Fight Action.

Carr sent a letter to the Senate leaders calling them to reject the candidacy.

During the confirmation hearing on April 6, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, raised the issue.
