FEATURING NORMAN SOLOMON – News broke on Wednesday that the Justice Department has made the case to federal prosecutors that it can send armed federal agents to vote-counting centers by law. Three people who saw a message to that effect described it to the New York Times. The paper explained that there is a “law [that] prohibits the stationing of armed federal officers at polls on Election Day. But a top official told prosecutors that the department interpreted the statute to mean that they could send armed federal officers to polling stations and locations where ballots were being counted anytime after that.”
