Election wasn’t rigged


The 2020 presidenti­al election has been declared fair and valid by state and federal courts, Christophe­r Krebs, the former director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecur­ity and Infrastruc­ture Security Agency, former U.S. Attorney General William Barr and countless legislator­s.

However, Donald Trump persists in claiming the election was “rigged” while raking in donations to his super PAC fund. So why are some GOP legislator­s willing to play along? Blind ambition? Greed for future PAC fund backing? Unwillingn­ess to stand up for a possibly unpopular truth?

None of these motivation­s is desirable in an elected representa­tive. Furthermor­e, those voters willing to disenfranc­hise their fellow citizens should think carefully. Are you willing to sacrifice your vote should the situation be reversed? Beverly L. Springer
