Another Republican Stunt
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party issued the following statement on Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter’s brief in support of the Texas attorney general’s lawsuit contesting election results in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Georgia:
“What an outrageous stunt and waste of taxpayers’ money. There has been no evidence of widespread fraud after counts, recounts, and certifications, yet state Republican legislators are applauding this frivolous lawsuit. Their actions are just another stunt to gain long-term favor from Trump and protect their seats, at a cost to Oklahomans and voters writ large,” stated Alicia Andrews, Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair.
“We have our own state issues to work on. Republican leaders should focus on helping Oklahomans as our state is now ranked Nationally in the top 5 for counties in the red with COVID and hospitals at capacity. This stunt undermines our election process, serves to disenfranchise African American voters, and demonstrates where the GOP’s interest truly lies,” concluded Andrews.
