Glenn Youngkin’s lead in Virginia’s Gubernatorial Election is diminishing as votes from Northern Virginia’s deep blue Fairfax County continue to trickle in and officials prepare to re-scan at least 20,000 of Fairfax County’s early voting ballots after experiencing supposed “technical difficulties” with the thumb drives used to store votes.

While several election experts and media outlets have declared Youngkin and the entire statewide GOP ticket to be the victors of tonight’s election, Terry McAuliffe and the Democrats have yet to concede the race, seeming to be emboldened by the “technical difficulties” experienced in Democrat stronghold Fairfax County.

In Fairfax, officials say that issues with the thumb drives used to store votes have made approximately 20,000 mail-in ballots require re-scans, as they were allegedly not properly counted. Interestingly enough, in the run-up to the election and as previously reported by National File, Fairfax County Elections Director, Scott O. Konopasek, told liberal media outlets that election results may “have to wait until Friday” blaming the amount of time he says it takes to count early and mail-in votes.

Interestingly, two hours away in Henrico County, Virginia, very similar events unfolded one year ago in the 2020 election. In that election, a whopping 15,000 votes were found on a USB flash drive, causing the Republican’s share of the vote to diminish rapidly. In the highly contested 7th District race, incumbent Democrat Abigail Spanberger ultimately won the race against popular Republican challenger and Virginia legislator Nick Freitas.

At the time, President Trump also led in the 7th District, though like Freitas, his lead also evaporated after the ballots were amazingly discovered on a mysterious USB flash drive.

Additionally, Konopasek and Fairfax County have blatantly refused to enforce Virginia election law in the Governor’s race, allowing mail-in and absentee ballot applicants to forego portions of the identification and security process, including providing an accurate last 4 digits of their Social Security number.

Despite the seemingly clear illegal nature of his conduct, a Virginia judge threw out a lawsuit on the matter that was filed by a voter. The judge pointed to Virginia’s anti-suspension clause, which bars unelected bureaucrats like Konopasek from ignoring or suspending the law.


Are we getting ready to see a repeat of the 2020 election?

The Trump hating election director in VA said results might have to wait until Friday because of mail in ballots.

Guess they needed that much time to find out how many ballots premarked for democrats were needed to change the out come.
