Letter to the Editor: Fraud, deception appear to be cornerstone of new democracy

To the editor:

Any person who thinks the November election was fair and properly run is either blind or totally naive.

When a state mails out 1.7 million absentee ballots and receives back 2.5 million, there is voter fraud somewhere.

When Democrats are videotaped expelling Republicans from polls and then proceed to count votes that were disqualified, that is voter fraud.

When Republican voters are listed by the board of elections as inactive voters, even though they have voted in all elections and then not allowed to vote – even provisionally – that is voter fraud.

Every Republican has the right to be angry and should be about how this election was conducted.

Our new democracy now appears to have fraud and deception as its cornerstone.
