Letter to the editor: Marshall’s fraud
To the editor:
It didn’t take long for Donald Trump’s cajoling, threatening and voter fraud demanding call to Georgia to be noticed by cartoonists and satirists. The irony of presidential voter fraud is apparently lost on our congressional representatives. Sen.-elect Roger Marshall wants certified votes nullified by Congress while Trump demands “11,780 votes” with Georgia’s head election official, Brad Raffensberger, all of which would be fraudulent. Does Marshall support voter fraud when it works in his conservative party’s favor? Trump’s demand is potentially election fraud, according to Section 52 of the U.S. Code. Raffensberger was threatened with criminal charges by Trump. Is that OK, Sen.-elect Marshall? That’s extortion (see Section 18, Chapter 41 of the U.S. Code). Sen.-elect Marshall, your continuing defense of Trump associates you with Trump’s corruption, mendaciousness, recklessness and bullying behavior as well as his official, if illegal, acts as president.
