Inslee Wants Criminal Charges for Officials Who Spread Election “Lies”
Again, as he has many times in the past, Gov. Inslee took potshots at former President Trump and others who have challenged election integrity following the 2020 disputed elections. You may recall him referring to Culp supporters as "Trumpians" during the 2020 campaign during an interview with Brandi Kruse from Fox Q13 TV.
INSLEE WANTS IT TO BE A CRIME FOR OFFICIALS TO SPREAD ELECTION "LIES"
In perhaps his most telling statements about shutting down opposition, Inslee said Thursday it should be a misdemeanor crime for officials who spread "lies" especially if it leads to violence.
He cited the January 6th events in Washington D.C. accusing Trump of trying to stage a coup and claims it's continuing today.
HE'S LIKELY REFERRING TO RECOUNT EFFORTS IN WA STATE
Seeing as how Washington D.C. is far removed from our state, it's likely Inslee is not-so-cleverly referring to calls for recounts in his election vs. Loren Culp. He also blasted 3 Republican legislators, including Rep. Brad Klippert, for attending a fraud symposium held by Mike Lindell--Inslee saying they did so at taxpayer expense.
He seems to have forgotten he has not paid back the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on his security detail with the WSP when he had his 'run' for Presidency.
In order for this misdemeanor crime to take effect, Inslee said there would have to be "knowledge that there’s potential to create violence."
That's a very wide-open, ambiguous, and dangerous precedence. Who is going to determine if such criteria exist? What would be the requirements?
This appears to be a thinly-veiled attempt to pressure and silence opposition and others who do not agree with him or his party's policies--by way of using election results as a crutch.
