Republican Benjamin L. Ginsberg
GOP election lawyer for 38 years
“President Trump has failed the test of leadership,” Ginsberg declares in his op-ed. “His bid for reelection is foundering. And his only solution has been to launch an all-out, multimillion-dollar effort to disenfranchise voters — first by seeking to block state laws to ease voting during the pandemic, and now, in the final stages of the campaign, by challenging the ballots of individual voters unlikely to support him. This is as un-American as it gets. It returns the Republican Party to the bad old days of ‘voter suppression’ that landed it under a court order to stop such tactics — an order lifted before this election.”
“The truth is that over all those years, Republicans found only isolated incidents of fraud,” Ginsberg explains. “Proof of systematic fraud has become the Loch Ness Monster of the Republican Party. People have spent a lot of time looking for it, but it doesn’t exist. As he confronts losing, Trump has devoted his campaign and the Republican Party to this myth of voter fraud.”
A Republican, an honorable man, the keeper of most of the political virtues associated with the GOP for decades. Thrown into the garbage can by a fascist-minded populist pimp.
