Election security – letter to the editor

I forwarded the following letter to the editor of my local newspaper. I hope it gets printed. Please feel free to adapt and use to your liking.

It continues to frustrate this independent and former Republican and Democrat voter that far too many people continue to believe the former president’s bogus and unproven election fraud claims. Losing every recount, audit and review and all but one of about 65 court cases, reveals how bogus these claims are.

A key reason the recounts failed to prove the bogus election claims is the 2020 presidential election was the most secure election in US history leaving an electronic audit trail that could verify the results. Of course, the former president fired the head of election security who said that just as he fired his own Attorney General who said his election fraud claims were BS.

We have serious issues that we need to deal with in our country, but I have no time for candidates who still parrot this election fraud BS as the Attorney General called it. It is time to elect serious minded people and a key first test is whether they continue to advocate the election fraud claims. If they do, my strong advice is to not vote for them. Full stop.

Reach out and touch…our leaders with your concerns

I have been in contact with the offices of sixteen Republican Senators to share my concerns about an American problem, not a Democrat or Republican one. I am also going to send the following email to several Democrat Senators.

If you agree with my mission, please feel free to adapt the following to suit your style and message. The staff I speak with say they are hearing from others with these concerns. Calls are better than emails, as you can actually converse and share your frustration.

“Dear Senator, thank you for your service. I am independent and former Republican voter who is following closely a group called Republicans for the Rule of Law. This group is pushing Congress to strongly consider two issues and are sending highlighted copies of the Mueller report to each member.

First, the Senate should move forward a vote on the bipartisan election security bill. It is very perturbing the Senate leader is standing against such a vote. The Russians influenced our 2016 election and already working on 2020.

Second, they side with the courageous statement by GOP Congressman Justin Amash that there are grounds for impeachment in the Mueller report. It should be noted a bipartisan group of 1,000 plus former federal prosecutors agree.

This is not just a Democrat issue, it is an American issue. We are not a kingdom, we are a republic. And, no one is above the law, even the president.

I have shared with my Republican Senators the above. I am concerned for our democracy and our planet, as our credibility has waned around the globe with this untruthful president. Please act.”

Thanks for your time and interest.
