An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Take action against your 12 dangerous anti-democracy colleagues

94 so far! Let’s get to 100 signers!

I'm appalled to hear that some 12 GOP senators intend to object to the electoral college vote. There are already 140 house GOP objectors. This is an abomination. It's a dangerous partisan attack on our vote, our voice, and on the public trust in elections that is a foundation of democracy. Their stunt is profoundly anti-Democratic. And it's a violation of their oath of office. I write because I expect you to use all the tools at your disposal to condemn this dangerous stunt. Make public statements, address your colleagues privately, have your staff put in requests to disbar them, vote to censure them, carry out ethics investigations, and remove them from committee assignments. I expect nothing less than relentless statements and actions to express the utmost condemnation. Democracies die when one party refuses to accept political defeat. Please put aside partisanship and honor your oath. Make these scoundrels apologise and recant. Make them write out the oath of office 100 times. It's past time to pass the SAFE act and the John Lewis voting rights act. The senate refused to pass these again and again--and the objectors don't have a foot to stand on. Most people learn to accept loss in primary school sports and student government elections. Your colleagues failure to accept Trump's loss is not a silly stunt. It's an arrow with a poison tip aimed at the heart of our democracy. Take action. Silence complicit
