Election challenge disgusts

I’m disgusted by the action of Rep. Jeff Van Drew in joining the Supreme Court lawsuit challenging the election results of four states. Thankfully, the Supreme Court recognized how frivolous this lawsuit was and dismissed it immediately.

Van Drew is a sycophant for President Trump who has sold his political soul and pledged undying support for Trump. Thankfully, the power of this incompetent president is coming to an end, as will hopefully the support for Van Drew from the Republican Party. He is someone who will sell out his voters (Democrats) for perceived political gains.

Challenge hurts confidence

I wonder what was Congressman Jeff Van Drew thinking when he signed onto the House GOP request to support the Texas lawsuit before the Supreme Court. The suit challenged the voting methods and results in four states.

I think if the challenge were successful it would have meant judicial activism ripping democracy to shreds. Thank goodness, the justices’ immediately rejected the Texas lawsuit.

Van Drew stated he signed onto the Texas lawsuit only because he is interested in ensuring “legal” votes are counted and those “not legal” are not. I think that undermines citizen confidence in free, fair and safe elections up and down the ballot. The logical outcome is that Van Drew’s own election last month should be suspect as an outcome of fraud (Atlantic City, anyone?) and should be invalidated.

Election suit embarrasses

Every time I think we’ve hit rock bottom in politics, along comes yet another supporter of President Trump. Rep. Jeff Van Drew, with his undying loyalty, signed onto that frivolous Texas lawsuit before the Supreme Court. An absolute embarrassment to himself and all of South Jersey, not to be forgotten.
