The Stupid Coup
Those 59 people who filed the fake electoral vote certificates might have a few regrets:
WASHINGTON ― Dozens of local and state Republican leaders who showed their loyalty to Donald Trump by casting fake electoral votes for him a year ago may now face prison time in return for that devotion.
Because as the House select committee investigating the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, starts to look into the origins of the scheme to send “alternate” ballots to Congress from states narrowly won by Joe Biden, the 59 ersatz Trump electors who claimed to be “duly elected and qualified” could face federal charges ranging from election fraud to mail fraud, in addition to a range of state-level charges.
It is axiomatic: Everything Trump Touches Dies. Throw the book at ’em, DOJ. Because if you don’t, they will try it again.
They are like the velociraptors in Jurassic Park, rattling all the door knobs until they find the one that opens.
