I thought Rep. Ann Wagner was the worst person in Missouri politics, and that includes Todd Akin, but now Sen. Josh Hawley has topped them all. Challenging the election results directly, explicitly, and permanently damages our democracy. The easily led will undoubtedly use Hawley’s stunt, soon to be laughed out of the chamber, as reason to doubt that there was a fair and complete election in 2020.
Hawley’s actions are unacceptable. He is a hack and a charlatan and should resign in shame.
