Letter about Are our friends and neighbors liars?…
To the Editor,
That’s what the GOP would have us believe. By showing the movie “2000 Mules,” the JEM Theater and Jeremy Munson are saying the election workers in our communities cheated. They are saying your vote didn’t count.
I am proud to be a Democrat and I believe that, like me, most Minnesotans consider our votes to be sacred. Every polling place is run by our friends and neighbors who give hours of their time and talent to ensure our votes are counted. Even at great risk to their own health during the pandemic, 30,000 Minnesotans stepped up to make sure we could vote safely.
But this movie and Minnesota GOP candidates continue to use the Big Lie of election fraud to divide us. Our courts have investigated and found no fraud. These false claims have no basis in fact. Spreading the Big Lie leads to neighbors mistrusting neighbors and ultimately led to the violent January 6 insurrection. The GOP wants to divide our communities because they think it will help them win. Don’t fall for it. The evidence clearly tells us that we can believe the results of the 2020 election. It was fair and accurately counted.
The folks at Fillmore County offices did a great job managing the election process and we have full faith in the upcoming election because we know all the volunteers are patriotic and dedicated to ensuring our votes are counted.
We encourage you to push back when you hear the Big Lie being spread. And respond by voting! Because Our Democracy Depends on Your Vote!
