FULCHER: Election really is over

| December 18, 2020 1:00 AM

Letter to Russ Fulcher: What part of democracy and what part of the election process as prescribed in the U.S. Constitution do you not fully accept or understand?

The Chief of cybersecurity, the Republican Sec. of State in GA and many others have acknowledged repeatedly that this was an utterly secure election. Mr. Fulcher you know this is wrong.

You know this has NO CHANCE of succeeding.

You know who the president-elect is. You know how the election was conducted.

You know that if Trump had won, NONE of this would be happening.

You know, most importantly, how your actions and those of 120 others in Congress who are on board with this nonsense are absolutely destroying the public’s trust in the election process, as well as fostering distrust in government generally. You are causing this. The actions being taken by those who want to steal this election will poison the GOP for many years to come.

I, for one, who have voted R in the past, will never, ever vote that way again.

Take a look around you, take a look at how the world is viewing us right now, take a look at how appalled our allies are with this. Do you think it doesn’t matter? Do you?

Mr. Fulcher… Please accept reality, abandon the fear and intimidation of this administration, stand up for American democracy and traditional conservative values — NONE of which are expressed in the actions of this administration or your office.
