There are a few voices in the Republican party who feel the need to speak out against the corruption of the outgoing president and those enabling him. In an article called “Mitt Romney tears into Republicans who are threatening to protest the Electoral College vote that will confirm Biden’s election victory” by Salar Shani of Business Insider, the Senator dies just that.
The article can be linked to below. Here a few paragraphs.
“Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said it would be ‘madness’ for Republicans to protest the Electoral College vote set to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s win.
‘Trying to get electors not to do what the people voted to do is madness,’ Romney said, according to NBC News.
Since the election, President Donald Trump’s campaign and some allied Republicans have waged lawsuits in multiple states seeking to overturn the results.
‘This is madness. We have a process, recounts are appropriate, going to the court is approp & pursuing every legal avenue is appropriate, but trying to get electors not to do what the people voted to do is madness,’ Frank Thorp V of NBC News quoted Romney as saying.
A representative for Romney confirmed his statement to Business Insider.”
It should be noted Romney uses the word “madness” twice to emphasize his point. I also liked that his representative confirmed the Senator’s statement.
Let me add that it is also a danger to our democracy and people who are getting death threats from the zealous members of the Trump base. These election officials, judges, governors, secretaries of state are the real heroes here, not the corrupt and deceitful person in the White House who has planned this cheating for six months.
Since Trump supporters will discount Romney’s opinion, how about the opinions of two attorneys who worked for Mr. Trump? Before the 2016 election Thomas Wells wrote “Donald Trump lies every day, even about things of no consequence.” And, his fixer Michael Cohen said under oath “Donald Trump is a racist, he is a con-artist and he is a cheat.”
I agree. Man-up Mr. Trump and admit you lost.
