One of the horses Donald Trump rode into the White House was the red herring that the election was “rigged.” A smokescreen and mirrors tactic.
Now the Republican Party rumor machine is doing the same thing, creating baseless doubts on the electoral process in Durham (“Chairman: No evidence of inaccuracies with 94K votes,” Nov. 16 news article). Their goal? Throw the election bone to the GOP General Assembly.
House Speaker Tim Moore has tipped his hand. It is clearly something they are thinking and talking about.
Shame on the GOP for casting doubt on the electoral process. Taint the election by casting doubt on the outcome of “that mostly black” Durham County. Try and close the gap that is likely to grow in Durham County, the step forward as the guardians of the solution.
This sort of rumor-mongering is the rot at the heart of politics, and it is buried deep in the recent history of the current heart of the Republican Party. It lacks honor and deserves no respect.
