Hillary Clinton just reminded us that this is a “slow-motion coup of the Republican Party.” What is happening is a movement in every Republican-dominated state legislature, Trump has his fingers in the election process. She complimented reporters for showing us the action in “state legislatures and offices of secretaries of state offices throughout the country.”
Then, she added an urgent note begging us to “fight back with orgs like @Ivotefund and [email protected]:”
‘Good reporting on the slow-motion coup the Republican Party is staging in state legislatures and offices of secretaries of state around the country. Don’t let them throw out your vote. Fight back with orgs like @ivotefund and the@dlcC.’
Is not as if every Secretary of State is the same. Three states do not even have one, Alaska, Hawaii, and Utah do not. Instead, they have Lt. Governors that handle a normal secretary of states’ job responsibilities. Then, three states have what is called the Secretary of the Commonwealth — Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Their responsibilities include, according to The Ballotpedia:
- ‘Keeping state records
- Registering Businesses
- Recording the governor’s official acts
- Administering state elections and maintaining the results
Commissioning and Regulation of Notaries.’
The one duty that is so vital is being in charge of the “Administrating state elections and maintaining the results.” The patriotic people in those offices, even the Republicans, are the ones who saved us from a catastrophic fall into an authoritarian country like that the last president of our country so admired, President Vladimir Putin’s Russia, according to the book Putin’s Russia: The Rise of a Dictator. Now, Republicans running for those office apparently must plead loyalty to Donald Trump to win.
These are the state positions that we need to guard. Because if the Republicans manage to win them by hook or by crook, we will never have fair elections again. It means that new laws implemented by the not-so-Grand Old Party will literally steal them out from under us.
We do not have any time to waste. The Republicans are already on the march to steal our democracy. If we do not want a Marjorie Taylor Greene (R- GA) House Speaker, a House Whip Paul Gosar (R-AZ), or a dictator Donald Trump, the time to move is now. Begin with contacting the local Democratic Party’s. office.
