Editor,

Thank you Congressman [Andy] Harris.

Although many people are asking you to step down, I’m thanking you for standing up for millions of Americans who questioned the integrity of this election.

I am puzzled about the lack of cooperation from the states that are in question about the integrity of the election.

If there is nothing to hide, why not cooperate and clear up the evidence that was brought forth?

Why was there a pause in counting votes, why were poll watchers asked to leave and the vote counting continued with no oversight?

This is not transparency. It only erodes the trust we have in our elections. Every American, regardless of your party should question that.

Since Amazon employees are getting ready to vote for unionization, an Amazon spokesperson came out and stated that they believe the best approach to a valid, fair and successful election is one that is conducted manually and in-person.

They want to insist on measures for a fair election. In other words, no machines and no mail in votes.

What I find interesting is how Amazon was for mail-in-votes for our presidential election?

There is much outrage about the mob (which is under investigation) that stormed the Capitol on Nov. 6. I am outraged also.

However, where was the outrage by the media over the violence by Antifa all summer long that resulted in millions of dollars in damage to small businesses and government buildings, deaths and assaults on our police?

Also, I’m very concerned about the censorship that is going on right now on our freedom of speech. If you have a different political opinion you are labeled a racist and you’re spreading hate speech, you could lose your job, be banned from social media, your business threatened or boycotted, be personally threatened or worst yet be labeled a domestic terrorist, a threat to our country and need to be re-educated, just for having a different political view.

This has got to stop. Big Tech, mainstream media and some very outspoken political figures are not in charge of our free speech. This is the last country of freedom. Benjamin Franklin said, “Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

So, Thank You Congressman Harris for standing up for Voter Integrity and for millions of voices that are now being silenced.
