Will it help them save the Senate?

Die-hard support

Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted about “clear instances of voter fraud all across the country.”

The dubious (to some) mail-in ballot system

Mail-in ballots are not new. Some states use them widely. In a pandemic, it would seem to be a no-brainer that they become more widespread. Since Democrats vote more utilizing that system, the Trump administration and his enablers planted those seeds of doubt whenever possible.

The Republican shell-games

McConnell, like other Republicans, is playing both sides of the fence. When he spoke from the Senate, he said the president was “within his rights” to explore legal avenues. He also said if something illegal occurred that affected the outcome, then the country should know, adding that the Democrats shouldn’t feel nervous about investigations if nothing untoward happened.

Where will this lead?

The majority of Americans demonstrated with their votes that further deepening division didn’t sit well with them. Character, or the lack thereof, counts.
