Speaking last night on “All in With Chris Hayes,” Stacey Abrams was asked about Glenn Youngkin’s call for election “audits.” Abrams’ response was spot-on:
“It’s a lie. It’s a lie told because it sounds so seductively like the truth, that we don’t investigate further. [Youngkin’s] not speaking of an audit, he is speaking of an overturning. An audit evaluates what was done. But usually what precipitates an audit is either a concern or a practice. And what they are asking for is to throw out the practical practice of how we hold our elections and instead respond to false concerns that do not exist. And they use that as a predicate to then promulgate new laws that will make it even harder to protect our elections the next time. Glenn Younkin is being seduced by or willfully participating in the subversion of our democracy and he should be rejected for that reason.”
As usual, Stacey Abrams explains it perfectly.
