False Claims of Election Fraud Should Be Illegal

False Claims of Election Fraud Should Be Illegal

Very first thing I would like to see addressed by Congress in 2021: make it illegal to claim that election fraud has happened or will happen where there is no evidence presented and no basis for an official investigation is established.

I have a hard time seeing how undermining faith in the core process of our democratic republic is any less dangerous than pulling a fire alarm in a crowded school hallway because you didn’t study, calling in a fake bomb threat at the airport because you’re running late, or spreading misinformation about a stock because you’ll make a fortune if the price tanks.

Afford our democracy the same protections that we provide the stock market: https://www.sec.gov/fast-answ​ers/answe​rstmanipulhtm.html.
