Jan. 6, 2021 should be in our rearview mirrors; instead, it looms large over our country as election deniers are on midterm ballots for office in more that 27 states from the governor’s mansions to national offices. Recall election deniers are people who believe that the election was stolen from Donald Trump and that our system was rigged in President Biden’s favor.  

Totally not true and proven so on many occasions, yet the “Big Lie” persists. As the January 6 Select Committee continues to do its work, we are learning more about just how successful those efforts would have been had there been a few more people in place in significant positions (i.e., Attorney General) within government structures across the country.  Now, election deniers are trying to implement those plans designed to overturn elections in various states, until the desired outcome is achieved. This should be frightening to everyone.
