Bannon and allies bid to expand pro-Trump influence in local US politics | Donald Trump | The Guardian

Flynn and Bannon have focused new energy on increasing conservative influence by recruiting more allies for key posts at the local and precinct level.

The growing drive by Trump’s hardcore allies has spurred election watchdog groups to voice alarm about the threat to democracy posed by Flynn and Bannon – and other Trump acolytes – as they combine debunked claims about election fraud and calls for further 2020 election audits with planning conservative takeovers of official positions that run US elections. The moves come a year after the attack on the Capitol in Washington when a pro-Trump mob invaded the building in an attempt to stop the certification of Biden’s election victory.
