Fake electors still faking it

| February 8, 2024 12:00 AM

The smooth transition of U.S. Presidential power came to an end after 225 years due to Donald Trump. The work of many, highly placed Republicans is responsible for this debacle.

After 35 months, Wisconsin Republican “fake electors” who collaborated with Donald Trump to overturn the 2020 Presidential election results, have admitted Joe Biden won that battleground state. These “fake electors” have agreed they would not serve as electors in 2024. Despite his attempt to sabotage the 2020 Presidential election, Robert Spindell still serves on the Wisconsin Election Commission.

American Oversight (www.americanoversight.org) reports that Arizona State Senator Kelly Townsend stated, “Vice President Pence, don’t accept Arizona valid electors.” This was echoed by Arizona Rep. Jake Hoffman. The state Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward signed off on a bogus electoral slate. Another fake elector is James Lamon, along with Pennsylvania fake electors, Andre McCoy and Bill Brachenberg, who were also part of the Arizona audit.

In Nevada, Republican Party Chair McDonald was one of six fake electors. Former Trump staffer Jesse Law now chairs the Clark County Republican Party. Nevada Republican Party Vice Chair James DeGraffenried was another “fake elector.”

American Oversight found records in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and New Mexico communicating with the National Archives regarding the submission of alternate certificates claiming Trump had won these states. Several of these alternate signatories have cast doubt on our sacred election integrity.

We all need to step up and voice our opinions regarding election integrity. Our democracy depends on it.
