I missed the misspelling of Georgia at first. It's happened before.


Georgia’s secretary of state is getting death threats: “You better not botch this recount. Your life depends on it.”


Opinion | The longer Republicans cower to Trump, the more damage they do to democracy


Georgia's secretary of state stood firm on his account that Sen. Lindsey Graham had hinted that he should try to discard some ballots in Georgia, where a recount is underway after the state went for President-elect Joe Biden in the presidential election


Lindsey Graham's reported suggestion that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger toss out all mail-in ballots from certain counties, including large numbers of legal ballots, is unacceptable. He should step down from his chairmanship immediately.

It’s the pandemic Trump perpetuated. Trump will never be able to hide from the horrific history of COVID-19. The death toll, the truth, the science, all documented. The coronavirus will forever be known as the Trump Virus.


Again I ask: If the Trump administration were trying to spread the coronavirus to as many Americans as possible, how could we tell the difference?


Opinion: Mike Pompeo’s legacy of incompetence peaked with his failed Iran policy
