Lin Wood Has Been Taking Courses In Pandemic Voting Rights, Election Hacking, & Election Administration

Lin Wood, one of the most vocal supporters of Donald Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was “stolen,” and one of the attorneys who has been involved in court cases to invalidate the outcome, has just completed a set of continuing education courses. A clear focus emerges in his class list.

As NPR reported in August, U.S. District Judge Linda Parker handed down the sanctions in response to lawsuits that she described as less “vindicating rights associated with an allegedly fraudulent election” than “deceiving a federal court and the American people into believing that rights were infringed, without regard to whether any laws or rights were in fact violated.”

She imposed a fine and other punishments, including continuing legal education courses, on Wood, as well as Sidney Powell and other attorneys named in the casework.

Wood, for his part, has maintained that he was not a part of these cases and should not face sanctions for them. One example is the screenshot below, of a message posted to his Telegram account in December.

Despite that, it appears that he completed the coursework, according to a document filed in the case. Law & Crime‘s Adam Klasfeld shared a portion, including the class list, on Twitter.

“As of this date,” Wood says in the filing, “I have completed 12 hours of legal continuing education as follows.”

The classes include “Vote by Mail, Early Voting and Digitized Election Administration;” “COVID-19 and Voting Rights: Ensuring Full and Equal Participation;” “Hacking Elections: Cyber Threats, Vulnerabilities, and The Way Forward;” and “International Political Influence and Corruption in Elections: Will Recent Events Lead to Stricter U.S. Regulations?”

That’s fully half of the courses, and half of the total time spent, devoted to election issues that seem to be right up Wood’s proverbial alley. The ultimate question, of course, is whether what he learned dispelled any of his theories of election interference, or whether he’ll merely incorporate the material into the next round.
