Dahleen Glanton: Voter fraud is fake. Voter suppression is real
America is long overdue for a serious conversation about disenfranchised voters.But let’s be clear. There is a big difference between voter fraud and voter suppression. Voter fraud is fake. Voter suppression is real.The people who poured into the streets of Washington, D.C., Saturday to protest the election they say was stolen from Donald Trump are reacting to a fantasy based on lies. Voter fraud is a myth created by Republicans who refuse to accept defeat.The reason no one can come up with legitimate cases of widespread voter fraud is because they do not exist. Such theories have been debunke...
Editorial: Under Joe Biden, Democrats must find a way to be a pragmatic, big-tent party
In the fall elections, Democrats won the headliner but lost many undercards. With sizable gains in state legislatures and the U.S. Congress, Republicans are poised to control redistricting based on the 2020 Census and potentially take back the House of Representatives in 2022.And so, pointed fingers are flying — with an always hypercritical party looking for people, strategies and messages to blame.There’s no single explanation for why an electorate that rejected Donald Trump was in many cases unwilling to give the Democrats a chance at the local level. But we’ve seen enough clues to suggest t...

ATLANTA — Georgia Republicans still aren’t acknowledging President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. But they are raising the specter of his incoming administration’s agenda to rally conservatives ahead of the high-stakes Jan. 5 runoffs.At a joint event Friday, U.S. Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue promoted the same message about the battle for control of the Senate: A defeat to Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in Georgia would hand the nation’s keys over to Biden and the Democrats.“Make no mistake. We are the firewall, not just for the U.S. Senate, but for the future of our country,” said Loeffle...

US election officials say 'no evidence' of compromised votes
Washington (AFP) - There is no evidence of compromised ballots or corrupt voting systems in the US election, officials said Thursday, as a top Democrat accused Republicans who refuse to accept President-elect Joe Biden's win of "poisoning" democracy.Their messages came hours after President Donald Trump once again cried foul, retweeting a baseless claim that an election equipment maker "deleted" 2.7 million votes for him nationwide.Biden, who leads by more than five million in the popular vote, cemented his victory late Thursday by winning Arizona, US networks said, flipping the state Democrat...
Dahleen Glanton: Give Republicans a standing ovation for their voter fraud performance
One by one, Republicans have taken to the stage to show their support for Donald Trump’s ridiculous claim that the presidential election was stolen from him.But it is just a performance.Despite how genuine their acts might appear, the GOP has already abandoned Trump. The problem is that Trump and his supporters don’t seem to realize it.This preposterous brouhaha over “illegal ballots” has nothing to do with keeping Trump in office another four years or unveiling legitimate fraud that might overturn the election. Top Republicans such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell know Trump lost the...
