In each of these cases, the legislature could act. They could legislate. They could investigate. They could impeach.
They have done nothing. Every time they could protect our kids from predators or persecutors or others, they fail.
Only now are the Georgia Republicans in the legislature going through the motions of fighting to defend the integrity of elections. But they are not really doing it for their voters. They’re doing it to try to hold on to their own power — power they never use to benefit or protect their constituents.
Republicans anywhere are going to ultimately lose to Democrats when they decide their path to keeping power is being Democrat-lite, punting on the cultural issues of the day, and changing the rules to make it harder to vote.
