Democrats are hypocrites when it comes to election challenges
October 19, 2022
Referring to Larry Persily’s opinion piece, “Republican election deniers threaten democracy” (Oct. 12 Sentinel), I wonder if a double standard is part of the new “improved democracy.”
It remains to be said that there were also many election deniers among Democrats in 2016 claiming Trump lost the election, calling him an illegitimate president for four years and challenging the electoral count. If the act of questioning election results threatens democracy, how come the very same people who challenged Trump’s 2016 win present themselves as champions/defenders of democracy now?
