To date, the only solid evidence of any fraud has involved Republicans. One or more people in one state tried to cast votes for dead people. In North Carolina, the only case of widespread fraud involved a Republican operative in the 9th Congressional District.
Our own representative claims he will try to replace certified Democratic electors with fraudulent Republican ones. This would make him look like the fool that he is and would be an embarrassment to our state. The only senator to indicate support for this hairbrained scheme is the one form Alabama who could not correctly name the three branches of government. He is in good company with our representative, who thought that the Emancipation Proclamation came from the House. The ignorance of these two is profound — and dangerous to the country.
The Republican Party has become the party of the radical right and white supremacists who are out for power but show no interest in actually governing. Trump is a classic example. He is out golfing instead of paying any attention to either legislation or the pandemic that is likely to kill more Americans than those who died in the Civil War. At the last minute he gets a wild hair and makes demands about things that he paid no attention to before. In the face of evidence that Russia is responsible for the cyber hacking, there is not a peep from the President.
We might excuse the President because he is obviously mentally ill. The vast majority of Republicans do not have that excuse. The silence of Republicans in Congress is defining. History will not treat these cowardly and self-centered politicians kindly. Nor will it speak favorably about those who support them.
