To the editor:
The Salem Information just lately reported that shedding GOP congressional candidate John Paul Moran and some different candidates, have requested a U.S. District Court docket for an injunction to decertify the outcomes of our election. Their allegations of fraud come from the identical wastebasket of baseless claims made by the Trump administration in 50 unsuccessful lawsuits. A consequence of this unprecedented try to delegitimize our election has been the specter of violence towards officers and public servants. These are the loopy, harmful partisan fires that Mr. Moran and his co-litigants have determined to pile on.
Democracy can’t survive with out the peaceable transition of energy and belief in our electoral course of. Reasonably than undermine the legitimacy of this election, Mr. Moran and his co-litigants may very well be dedicated to bringing “masked” and “unmasked” Individuals collectively to unravel the monumental difficulty of vaccinating hundreds of thousands. They may very well be devoted to serving to discover options for hundreds of thousands of unemployed, on the point of eviction and lining up for meals banks.
Judging by the end result of the Massachusetts elections, the overwhelming majority of voters are uninterested in the president and those that select to guide by division, battle and obstruction. We’re all exhausted by the organic virus and the political virus. Each are deadly. I’d urge Mr. Moran and the opposite litigants to indicate up for the folks, as a substitute of in courtroom and possibly subsequent time they’ll win, that’s the way in which democracy is meant to work.
