Election workers

November 17, 2022

A democracy depends on a myriad of government workers who incorporate its values into the jobs they do. Some are volunteers, such as the many election workers, who train and toil in order to provide honest elections. They deserve our gratitude.

The MAGA cult’s most dangerous aspect has been its attack on government workers, labeling them “the swamp,” calling truth lies and lies truth, and bringing to power the most corrupt administration in US history, one that demanded loyalty to its leader over commitment to the law. An important chapter of that is how they tried to subvert Ruby Freeman, a Georgia election worker they falsely accused of villainy, in their attempt to undo the results of the 2020 election.

Pence has been working hard to point out that in his most important task as VP — certifying the electoral vote in 2020 — he stood up to MAGA and did the honest thing. He will discover that he is mistaken about his own party. A large part is far down the populist path, and hate him for having done that honest thing. They would have hung him that day. They never will support him.
