Senator Collins, find some integrity
Dear Senator Collins, Please stop "both sides-ing" the election and act like someone who supports the constitution and the source of sovereignty-- namely the American people . We have spoken. Biden has a large margin, too large to be overturned by recounts, and the largest popular vote in history. And look-- "A team of intern’l observers invited by the Trump admin. has issued a prelim. report giving high marks to the conduct of last week’s elections--& it criticizes Pres. Trump for making baseless allegations that the outcome resulted from systematic fraud.” So do better. Your guarded congratulations to Biden on his apparent victory and your failure to even mention your senate colleague now VP elect Kamala Harris look small, shabby, partisan and grudging, maybe even a racist misogynist dog whistle. When historians come to write this sad chapter in our history you can be sure that you will be classed among the "good Germans" who enabled Hitler. Leadership scholars might use you as an example of some one whose wish for personal power led them to abandon principles and promises. That would be a sad legacy. Surely a few mean tweets from the likes of Paul Le Page or Donald Trump don't really matter. Please show some courage and honor now. Never before in American history has a President lies to the American people daily, never before has a president shredded the constitution. You yourself recognised Trump's unfitness in 2016. Your craven partisanship since then is a sad moral failure, all the sadder because it's not just a betrayal of your own statements but it's complicit in the unprecedented undermining of our democracy. Don't think that just winning re-election makes you right. Find your integrity and stop propping up the illegality and smears of the Trumpists
