    It is not "all over the internet" but I did find a couple of reports about an organization that Abrams founded in 2014 and that Warnock headed up in 2019. It seems there were a few attempts at fraud under his watch. However, Abrams is not under investigation, and all of the alleged fraud adds up to maybe 3,000 votes total. That doesn't mean that those involved get a pass, just that in the whole picture, it doesn't amount to much.

    For future reference: when you make a claim, the burden of proof is yours. Snarky comments like "Can you use google" are for those too lazy to do their own homework.

    My job here is to point to the facts supported by the evidence. Your job here is to echo right-wingnut media talking points despite the evidence. We both do our job well...

    wow ... in such a short post, you managed to type Democrat and leftist twice each ... if you would like to know my political affiliations, you could just ask ... no need to assume ...

    I'm white, didn't vote for Trump ... what am I supposed to do as a white man to make that percentage go up? ...

    I would like to get back to Arizona where I live ... I can't find your post concerning my state ... is it your contention that Arizona was leaning Red? ...

    Really, you don't even have to read the full report, just the summary ... Trump people all over Russian contacts discussing Hillary, emails, inside info etc ... do you need a list of names??? .. just read the damned summary ... Mueller just wasn't able to connect the actual Trump knowledge of the whole multimillion dollar campaign for dirt ...

    show the evidence ... but you won't because you can't ...

    And how do you figure it's the voters in his state? Did they vote him out of office? How did you come to that ?

    Seems some are angry over Antifa and BLM getting credit for the Capitol riots. Of course, anyone with a brain knows it wasn’t Antifa or BLM....it was Trumpers....as evidenced below.

    “Don’t you dare try to tell me that people are blaming this on antifa and BLM,” Mellis wrote, referring to Black Lives Matter. “We proudly take responsibility for storming the Castle. Antifa and BLM or [sic] too ***** … We are fighting for election integrity. They heard us.”

    The criminal case against Mellis ― dubbed “Cowboy Screech” by online sleuths because of his resemblance to the “Saved By The Bell” character and his cowboy hat ― was unsealed Tuesday. He faces several charges, including for assaulting officers and aiding and abetting, civil disorder, entering a restricted building or grounds, violent entry or disorderly conduct, and obstruction of Justice/Congress.

    Mellis wasn’t alone. While plenty of defendants later arrested and charged in connection with the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol joined many of their fellow Trump supporters in blaming antifa for the attack, plenty of others were also a bit upset that their work alongside a mob of Trump supporters was being attributed to some fictitious gang of anti-fascists.

    HuffPost found at least three other Capitol insurrectionists charged in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol who, the feds say, complained on social media about antifa getting credit for their work.

    “Listen up: I hear so many reports of ‘Antifa’ was storming the capital [sic] building. Know that every single person who believes that narrative have been DUPED AGAIN!” wrote Ryan Nichols, who was charged alongside his fellow insurrectionist Alex Harkrider. “Sure, there may have been some ‘Antifa’ in DC, but there wasn’t enough to ‘Storm the Capital’ [sic] themselves.”

    “Okay all you conspiracy theorists don’t worry I loves yous all just setting the record straight,” wrote Karl Dresch. “antifa did not take the capitol.that was Patriots, I can’t guarantee there weren’t some **** birds in the crowd but what multi-million crowd can you guarantee?.don’t give them the thunder, we the people took back our house, the news is all bullshit.and now those traitors Know who’s really in charge.”

    “It was not Antifa at the Capitol,” wrote Brandon Straka, a “Stop the Steal” organizer with ties to Trump who was charged last month. “It was freedom loving Patriots who were DESPERATE to fight for the final hope of our Republic because literally nobody cares about them. Everyone else can denounce them. I will not.”

    Nope they voted him in but his approval rating went in the tank shortly after the vote. One if the reasons he was censured by the local reps in his state. Any time some ppl makes a pariah if himself in his home state you bet their be a raise among every other pol to distance themselves from him.

    How do you know that after the Capitol attack, the majority of Tar Heel voters do not believe that Trump was complicit? You don’t. Burr showed character and courage to uphold his oath taken right before the trial to be a fair and impartial juror and cast his vote based on the evidence as he perceived it. Good for him.

    Because Burr's approval dropped like a stone... If they hadn't he likely wouldn't have gotten censured. The rest is a matter of opinion. Mine is that Barr like most of the rest that voted to convict is just another war mongering Neocon pissed because Trump didn't kill enough brown people in the Middle East aided and abetted by the fact that Trump ruined their Bush party.

    Got it, those who voted to convict Trump were just mad because Trump did not kill enough brown Middle Easterners...Interesting. Is that the official MAGA position?

    Sasse told NPR that the GOP “surely appears” to still be the party of Trump “if you look at polling in the short-term.”

    And now the party must choose between “conservatism” and “short-term-ism,” according to the Republican senator.

    “I think it’s important to give a frank assessment of where the party of Lincoln and Reagan is right now,” Sasse said. “I think there’s a whole bunch of stuff the party of Lincoln and Reagan needs to do to persuade people we have a 2030 agenda, not a 20-minute Twitter agenda.”

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/sasse-says-gop-needs-to-offer-more-than-trumpism

    The GOP did an assessment before. It suggested a broadening of the GOP's appeal to a more diverse demographic. Instead, it created Trumpism. Bigoted, intolerant, nativist, nationalist, xenophobic, exclusive.

    What happened, did you handlers not give you a credible answer? I know, you don't have a handler, right? You just parrot the media party line. Yet, when AOC condoned the violence that was being conducted by ANTIFA and BLM:

    "People have no choice to violently riot."
    AOC: People Have No Choice But to Violently Riot by Katie Pavlich (townhall.com)

    Or

    Pressley:

    "There should be “unrest in the streets” over President Trump and his political allies turning a "deaf ear" to Americans' concerns, including those about the "dismantling" of the U.S. Postal Service -- which amounts to voter suppression, U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., said Friday.
    Ayanna Pressley calls for 'unrest in the streets' over Trump-allied politicians ignoring Americans' concerns | Fox News

    Pressley knew perfectly well that the street unrest had been violent in nature.

    How about the fact that candidate Biden refused to call for an end to the street riots until he was forced to?

    Sounds to me that you think it is funny that these Democrat politicians would support a real insurrection while impeaching President Trump for inciting a riot that failed to qualify as an insurrection. Another pathetic unamerican response from a liberal that ignores reality.

    I'm sticking by my comment that what you wrote........."Maybe you should be asking why Democrats are so mad. Remember that they are the ones supporting the real insurrection posed by ANTIFA and BLM.".............is too laughable to take seriously. And I'll tell you why. Because it is.

    No. He already said he had no intention of running again. He got in only to get Trump out. Mission accomplished.

    I'm not angry at all. Sad perhaps. Why does the OP ask why Republicans are angry and then go into an angry tirade??

    Now you're contradicting yourself. You said after he voted against Trump his poll numbers tanked. He had already said he wasn't going to run.
