Video: Former Rep. Riggleman (R-VA05) Says “Every Single [VA GOP] Candidate” Is Talking About “Election Integrity”…aka, the “Fantasy that the Election Was Stolen”

Riggleman agrees with Rep. Liz Cheney, who earlier today called this out as "THE BIG LIE"


Good stuff by former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA05), yet again calling out Republicans for pushing the wild lie that the 2020 election was stolen. Unfortunately, according to Riggleman, this “grift” is working, both raking in money for Republicans who push “Stop the Steal” lunacy, but also pressuring Republican politicians and candidates to spew this stuff, or at least not condemn it (as Rep. Liz Cheney did early today, calling it out as “THE BIG LIE“). Riggleman also noted that here in Virginia, “every single [Republican] candidate has talked about ‘election integrity’ commissions,” which of course is “a cover for ‘Stop the Steal’.” Of course, some VA GOP candidates talk about it much more blatantly and forcefully than other VA GOP candidates, but has any one of them called it out as Rep. Liz Cheney, former Rep. Riggleman, etc. have done? As a Big Lie and a grift? If so, I must have missed it…
