The story goes like this – Biden won the election by a lot. Trump who is famous for not liking losers is a very sore one. So, he and his supporters make baseless allegations of widespread fraud. Now Trump’s supporters like Sen. Braun want to overturn the election results on account of there being allegations of fraud (which, if you were following along earlier, were made simply because Trump and his supporters didn’t like the outcome.)Braun cites “unprecedented allegations of voter fraud.” They’re unprecedented because in the past, when there was no evidence of voter fraud, United States Senators by and large decided to go along with the rule of law and acquiesce to the will of the people even if their guy didn’t win rather than making up stories about voter fraud.
I don’t expect that Braun will suffer any negative consequences for his bold stand against the democratic process under which our Republic has operated for the last couple of centuries, but I thought I’d at least make a note of his position.
