Election Integrity

If the 2022 mid-term election is to be anywhere close to honest, we must clean up the broken election system. I will say it straight out. The outcome of the November 3, 2020 general election was the result of massive fraud and cheating. As we watched the results, it became obvious in real time that something was wrong, and it became undeniable as more evidence was brought to light.

As the days and weeks went by, it became painfully clear that the swamp was much deeper than we thought. The courts used lame excuses and refused to even look at the evidence. And then on January 6, 2021 congress convened to vote on the certification of the electoral votes from the states. Though constitutional options exist for such a situation, very few in Congress had the courage to voice an objection.

The Heritage Foundation has conducted a massive study of election laws and practices of all 50 states. Iowa was ranked among the better states on election integrity being ranked at #12. However, scoring 70 out of a possible 100 points, Iowa has room for improvement. Areas that need improvement include vote counting practices, accuracy of voter registration lists, absentee ballot management, Identification of those who assist those who need help voting. These things need to be addressed in Iowa and on the national scene we need U.S. Senators, and Representatives who are uncompromising and have a backbone.
