I am responding to the letter headlined “Details Left Out in Herald Story” in the April 28 Herald. The letter writer states that “Anyone who doesn’t acknowledge widespread fraud, irregularities and illegal actions during the 2020 election is not paying attention. Without election integrity, we have no republic!”
I would kindly ask her to provide proof. Trump’s attorney general, William Barr, stated that there was no fraud. Election officials in 50 states have certified their elections as fair. Trump brought over 50 lawsuits regarding the 2020 election and lost all but one (a motion for election observers to stand closer to those counting the ballots). Rudy Giuliani lost his law license for making false statements regarding the Trump lawsuits. Dominion Systems, the company that provided the voting machines in many states, is currently suing FOX News, Sidney Powell, Mike Lindell, Newsmax and many others for billions, claiming that they engaged in purposeful conspiracy campaigns.
According to The Brennan Center for Justice, voter fraud is rare. We do know that Trump phoned election officials in Georgia “looking” for 11,700 votes, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows registered to vote in three states and the Arizona GOP led an audit by a firm called Cyber Ninjas. We have not yet heard what they discovered, as infighting has led to the company’s dissolution.
I share the letter writer’s concern regarding keeping our republic. Perhaps she has fallen for the Big Lie, led by those who would destroy our precious America. Look for proof and facts to keep our democracy.
