Death threats continue to haunt election workers

On April 5, an anonymous texter said a family member was "going to have a very unfortunate incident.” The following week, a texter wrote, “We plan for the death of you and your family every day.” And on April 24, another text warned, "You and your family will be killed very slowly.” In the early aftermath of last year's election, death threats leveled at election workers and sometimes other local officials became alarmingly common. But the new Reuters investigation demonstrates that threats and intimidation have both continued, and they haven’t necessarily been isolated to top...

Joe Manchin Vows To Vote Against Biden’s Election Manipulation Bill

Senator Joe Manchin said he would vote against a bill supported by President Biden that would nationalize election laws because it includes ending the filibuster.

He noted that election-related legislation should not be blatantly partisan. “I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy the...

Sen. Tim Scott Blasts Banks For ‘Woke Capitalism,’ Particularly Regarding Georgia Election
