While most Americans sat down to eat their Thanksgiving meals last year, I was looking forward to a few moments of peace with my family during what had been a chaotic few weeks. Georgia’s county and local elections officials had already counted the ballots in the presidential election twice, including once by hand, and had just started the third and final recount. All three counts affirmed Joe Biden as the winner of Georgia’s presidential contest.
Yet my Thanksgiving was interrupted by news that President Donald Trump had called me an “enemy of the people” purely because I stood up for the integrity of Georgia’s elections. I refused to bend to the pressure and, on America’s day of thanks, this was the thanks I got.
In the year since, a signature audit and numerous investigations into allegations of fraud have turned up nothing. No one has come forward with evidence of any widespread scheme to steal the election. The courts have reaffirmed the results in Georgia time and time again. A year later, I am even firmer in my conviction that Georgia’s elections were accurate and secure.
