RED ALERT DONALD TRUMP!
[UPDATED @4:35 P.M. 12.5.16 with Election Code statute, 25 P.S. § 3457 and discussion, as follows in brackets.
(C) When presidential electors are to be elected, their names shall not be printed upon the ballot, but in lieu thereof,
the names of the candidates of their respective parties or political bodies for President and Vice-President of the United
States shall be printed together in pairs under the title "Presidential Electors." All ballots marked for the candidates
for President and Vice-President of a party or political body shall be counted as votes for each candidate for presidential elector of such party or political body.
This section of the Election Code makes Lawrence Tabas an interested party to any recount or contest petition. Tabas is a candidate for the office of Presidential Elector - for whom the votes were cast - according to law - and that is why he is in severe violation of established ethical standards. Such cavalier disrespect for attorney ethics in a case of such national importance is more than grossly negligent, it is blatantly reckless.
Lawrence Tabas should recuse himself from eligibility to the Office of Presidential Elector and he should have no further involvement representing the other Candidate-Electors, and he should report himself to the bar authorities and ask for mercy hoping not to be disbarred forever from the practice of law.]
I just learned that Lawrence Tabas is one of the twenty candidate-electors for Donald Trump from Pennsylvania. I was updated from a comment here yesterday. In that post, I accused Tabas of being a traitor saboteur who - while appearing in court as representing the interests of Donald Trump and his slate of electors - was actively working against Trump being sworn in. And I have a lot more to publish concerning my bizarre correspondence with Tabas and another key member of the legal team who is supposed to be representing Trump's interests. (More on that in the days ahead, and it isn't good.)
It's not even remotely ethical that Lawrence Tabas is a Candidate-Elector representing Donald Trump in the Electoral College - while also being lead counsel on behalf of Trump's Pennsylvania Electors during Jill Stein's recently dismissed election contest.
His filings in the contest failed to make the court aware that he was appearing Pro Se - a Latin term meaning "for oneself" or "on one's own behalf".
For the statewide contest, Tabas was the top named attorney in the Application To Dismiss - which was not granted on the papers, and, therefore was a humiliating failure as far as I am concerned. I do not have any faith Tabas has put Donald Trump's interest, and the American people's interest above his own.
It might appear at first glance that all of the electors have the same interest, but how do we know that for sure? Twenty humans caught in the most bizaro Presidential election cycle this nation has ever seen.
Electors might vote for whomever they like. And the state would then have a conundrum in submitting their slate.
That they almost always vote the same, does not change the fact that they have the freedom to choose, and many of them are being harassed with death threats, and offers of who knows what?
Therefore, Tabas - being an elector - and a Philly law hot shot - should not also have been lead counsel for the other electors.
HOW IS THAT NOT A CONFLICT OF INTETREST?
HOW CAN WE BE SURE TABAS IS NOT PLANNING ON BEING A FAITHLESS ELECTOR?
Were the other candidate-electors notified? Did they consent? We know the court papers do not show Tabas appearing "Pro Se". Look at page 6 of the Answer filed in the Stein Contest, and look at page 27 of the Application to Dismiss. Lawrence Tabas had an absolute ethical duty to make the court, and all litigants and counsel aware of his conflict.
In a year when there is a lot of talk about the real danger of faithless electors to Donald Trump, now, more than ever, Lawrence Tabas had a crucial ethical duty to let all parties know that he was both a candidate-elector as well as lead counsel for the other candidate-electors.
Furthemore, in failing to challenge the verification affidavits in the Stein election contest as both statutorily insufficient and fraudulent (despite my spending 16 minutes on the phone with his co-counsel, gifting them the winning path) - Tabas and his team put the other nineteen candidate electors at risk. All of this was before Jill Stein withdrew the case.
Tabas appears to be a saboteur and he needs to be removed from the Electoral College immediately.
Why hasn't Lawrence Tabas entered an:
EMERGENCY STAY OF THE ALLEGHENY COUNTY RECANVASS TO BE FILED TOMORROW AT 8:30 A.M. ON BEHALF OF AT LEAST ONE OF THE TWENTY TRUMP ELECTOR-CANDIDATES.
Why hasn't Lawrence Tabas done anything to stop the recanvass in Allegheny County at all?
Add all of the above to this...
BLATANT SABATOGE OF TRUMP ELECTORS BY GOP ATTORNEY RON HICKS IN ALLEGHENY COUNTY HEARING.
...and it's like a nightmare, Donald Trump.
YOUR NEST IS INFESTED WITH PARASITES!
