Reader's View: Republicans must stand up in rebuke
Where’s Rep. Pete Stauber’s voice in condemning Trump’s ridiculous lies and his continued attacks on our elections?
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,” Irish philosopher Edmund Burke once said.
I salute Georgia’s Republican state legislators for having the courage to stand up to President Donald Trump. These Republicans, many of whom had voted for Trump, received death threats for doing their job in certifying the will of the Georgia voters.
Gabriel Sterling, a Republican in the Georgia secretary of state's office said, “It has to stop. Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions. … Senators, you have not condemned these actions. … We need you to step up, and if you're going to take a position of leadership, show some. This (election) is the backbone of democracy and all of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this.”
What happened to our leaders in the Republican Party? Where’s Rep. Pete Stauber’s voice in condemning Trump’s ridiculous lies and his continued attacks on our elections? Does someone have to die in the Georgia or Michigan governments before Stauber and his fellow 200-plus Republicans find the courage to stand up and condemn Trump’s actions?
Shame on all of you good men and women for doing nothing and for saying nothing as evil triumphs over good.
