Enabler of Domestic Terror and Corruption
I’m sorry to say, our current state representativeDaire Rendon, who represents a gerrymandered district in which she did not have to campaign for reelection has supported the Trump challenge to the legitimacy of the recent election. Trump lost by over 7 million votes and by the same electoral vote count that he won by 4 years ago. She has supported his lies that he actually won the election which is totally false. There was no justification for the lies. The Trump lawyers filed over 60 lawsuits, which were thrown out of state and federal courts all over the countryincluding the Supreme Court because they had zero basis in fact. Even republican secretaries of state were criticized because they refused to cheat their state voters from their legitimate right to vote by not certifying their cast ballot to help Trump win.
State Rep Daire Rendon has supported this shameful fraudulent challenge that resulted in the attempted coup in Washington DC by a mob encouraged by the president and his enablers. It was a disgusting display of authoritarian rule more common in a banana republic and demonstrated a challenge to our democracy that many of our ancestors died to protect.
She defends this abuse of power and threats to our democracy. At the same time she signed on to a partisan effort to impeach our Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Governor Whitmer, whose life was and is threatened by white supremacists and their followerswho tried to take over the Michigan State Capital. Many in this mob also when to D.C. and participated in the attack on the Capital. Governor Whitmer has stood up for public health by putting human life before convenience during the worst public health crisis in our history. Trump handed the pandemic off to the governors of the states so he wouldn’t be held responsible for the deaths and economic effects of the pandemic. Fortunately, most people have seen through this incompetence and self-serving abrogation of his duty as president.
Daire Rendon has devalued democracy and has promoted authoritarianism in the country at the same time she fawns over the rights of people not to wear a mask that may save lives. How’s that for a person who did not have to campaign or provide voters with a platform for her election in her gerrymandered district. Resignation should be her next step. We need real leadership.
