he Republican Party reeks of desperation as the country has reached the three week mark before the 2020 presidential election. California Governor Gavin Newsom tweeted last night that the GOP is “willing to lie, cheat, and threaten our democracy all for the sake of gaining power.”
Just how desperate have the Republicans become? Well, after complaining about voter fraud with mail-in ballots, the California GOP is committing election fraud with mail-in ballots. Republican operatives have set up ballot drop boxes throughout the state with fake “official” labels on them and have encouraged voters to place their ballots in these phony boxes.The California Secretary of State and the State Attorney issued a cease-and-desist order to the California Republican Party, telling it to remove the bogus collection boxes by today. If they do not, there could be unspecified legal consequences.
Of course, the California Republican Party was defiant, saying that it did not intend to comply with the order. A spokesman for the GOP said that the party would not provide a list of all of the locations where the phony ballot drop boxes are placed, and will not remove its bogus boxes. They did agree to change some of the signs. Big whoop!
There are three words for Republican Party in 2020: unscrupulous, unconscionable, and unrepentant.
