Voter

As the 2022 midterm election morning dawned, Donald Trump could be found up bright and early yammering about election fraud that didn’t exist. His accusations were especially bizarre since they were aimed at the Republicans who were running the Arizona election. So he thinks that Arizona’s GOP officials were committing...
