A high-ranking Republican senator just confirmed the news and millions of Americans are stunned. The election was “stolen” from us all.
“‘The fraud happened,’ the Kentucky Republican said during a Wednesday Senate hearing on election security,” reported the Washington Examiner, referring to Sen. Rand Paul’s recent statements at a committee hearing.
“The election in many ways was stolen, and the only way it’ll be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws,” Paul continued. “We can’t just say, ‘Oh, 4,000 people voted in Nevada that were noncitizens, and we’re just going to ignore it.'”
Paul has a way of getting to the truth of the matter, which has made him a steady leader in the Senate since being elected. His blunt assessments have roiled egos in both major political parties for a reason.
Now, since the Electoral College has voted and Congress is poised to confirm the results, we have to look forward at election-related forms — both at the state and federal level.
But this does not mean elections should be federalized, either — a point Paul has made. Some reforms to provide clearer ground rules and consistency are fine, but keeping elections predominately handled at the local level is a must.
