L. Lin Wood, a conspiracist attorney who has been backing Donald Trump’s big lie that the election was stolen from Donald Trump, is now being investigated himself for illegally voting in Georgia while actually living in South Carolina.
It turns out that Wood was a plaintiff in a Nov. 13 lawsuit alleging that Georgia’s procedures for handling absentee ballots had been unconstitutional. That lawsuit failed when a Trump-appointed district court judge found “no basis in fact or in law” to stop Georgia’s certification of its election results.1
Wood had also been part of the litigation team with Sidney Powell which tried to overturn the election result in Michigan. In that case, U.S. District Judge Linda V. Parker suggested that Wood and Powell’s motive for filing the case was not to win, but to shake “people’s faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government.” 2
If that wasn’t enough, Wood was also a lead plaintiff in a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia seeking an emergency injunction to halt the Senatorial runoff election for the two United States Senate seats from Georgia.3
The comedy just keeps writing itself.
- A three-judge panel on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit unanimously affirmed the district court’s decision on December 5, 2020.
- Counsel for the City of Detroit called for Wood, Powell, and other ‘Kraken lawsuit’ counsel, to be referred for disbarment and sanctions from state bar disciplinary bodies.
- The complaint contained a remarkable typographical error in that it was verified by Wood “under plenty of perjury” rather than “under penalty of perjury”.
