  1. It was not the election that caused the distrust, it was the rhetoric of Mr Trump! He refused to accept the results of the election even after numerous recounts and lawsuits!
    The voters should not be penalized for his crime.

  2. It was not the “rhetoric” of a candidate that caused the mistrust—it was hundreds of SIGNED affidavits describing voting irregularities across the board—it was video showing poll workers pulling out boxes of ballots hidden under a table and then proceeding to count them AFTER poll watchers had left—it was halting the count and then restarting it in the middle of the night—the list of aberrations is very long. The top eight elected positions in Georgia are Republican—both the House and the Senate are majority Republican. I find it highly unlikely that Georgia citizens legitimately voted for a Democrat president AND two Democrat Senators—something smells to high heaven here.
