(LibertySociety.com) – Ever since the states certified the winners of the 2020 election, there have been two camps: those who believe there was widespread fraud and others who don’t. The division between those sides mainly runs along party lines, except for a chosen few like Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT). So, it’s no surprise the Wyoming legislator took her displeasure straight to Twitter when House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) dodged questions about his beliefs on the allegedly stolen election during his October 10 interview with Chris Wallace.

When asked if the US had a free and fair election in 2020, Scalise pointed to the states abruptly changing voting rules last year, indicating the procedure contributed unfairly to President Joe Biden’s victory. Republican lawmakers and many registered GOP voters believe former President Donald Trump lost due to fraud.
In Cheney’s view, continually perpetuating the very idea is detrimental to “the core of our constitutional republic.” She queries, if the majority of Americans and half the legislators don’t believe fair elections can happen in the United States, what does that mean for the future of democracy?
Cheney seems to believe if we can’t come together as a nation to agree on facts and fix our problems going forward, the United States could be headed for ruin. What’s interesting is she isn’t acknowledging the fact that there are still questions surrounding the election that need answers.
