The dishonorable Russ Fulcher trying to subvert democracy

| January 14, 2021 1:00 AM

As the only Idaho congressional representative to try and subvert democracy by suggesting that the presidential election was rife with voter fraud, despite these lies being completely debunked, Mr. Fulcher dishonored the oath he took to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Mr. Fulcher claims that his dishonoring the will of the electorate is because state legislators did not approve changes to voting methods due to a global pandemic and that the elections in some states were therefore illegitimate. An honorable man, who actually believed what he said, would admit that his primary election victory occurred as a result of changes to Idaho’s election method that were done by executive action and had no legislative approval.

If Russ Fulcher was an honorable man, he would have not accepted his primary election victory because it was illegitimate, and would not have participated in the general election. However, Russ Fulcher is not an honorable man.

Hopefully the citizens of this state will support an honorable person to replace him in his next primary election.
