Letter: Peggy Knight, Leesburg

Editor: Whatever you think happened in the 2020 election, lots of folks had doubts based on reports of irregularities from people close to the election process. 

My delegate was the only elected person I know who actually took a strong stand to make sure every person could be confident that their vote counted. Democrats have attacked any person who raised questions. Many of those same Democrats ranted and raved after Trump was elected and with no evidence of election tampering.

It is hard to believe that the law in Virginia was changed recently and now allows people to vote without showing an official ID. Liberals say they want everybody to vote and that may include a lot more people who are not supposed to be voting if this nonsense keeps up.

Every vote should count, and Democrats should be just as committed to assuring that as anyone.

Thanks, Dave LaRock, for being the strong leader who supports fair elections.

    Democrats not supporting voter ID is a clear indication that Democrats are engaged in voter fraud.

      That doesn’t make any sense at all. Besides, the evidence to date shows Republicans are more likely to commit voter fraud.

      See, for example, the arrest of Republican operative Leslie McCrae Dowless in North Carolina, Tomas Ramirez in Texas, former Maine state Senator Frank Artiles, three fervent Trump supporters in Pennsylvania including Bruce Bartman…. I mean, the list goes on and on.

      Republicans trying to disenfranchise large segments of the voting population is unAmerican, however. Why anyone would vote for a political party that clearly hates America and all that she stands for is beyond me. LaRock is in that category. Vote him out.

    Just make sure all your neighbors and adult children vote this November and the State will be in better hands. The people who don’t vote make up a much larger factor than any other issue especially independents who get caught up in the dislike for both partisan tribes. It is still important to vote even if it is for the better of bad choices. Make your preference count.

    There are adequate provisions in place in Virginia to screen out voter fraud. It’s not like any old person can go to a polling place & cast a vote. The writer has every right to express doubts about the validity of last year’s presidential election. But with all due respect, Donald Trump lost by about seven million votes. If you believe fraud occurred to that extent, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

    Oh, enough with the concern trolling.

    Dave LaRock didn’t soberly push for election integrity. He stood up multiple times and asserted without any evidence that the election results were fraudulent. With the exception of a handful of cases where Republicans showed up to try to vote multiple times, exhaustive reviews (which were expensive and needless) upheld the integrity of the election beyond any question. And yet, our idiot delegate participated in a “rally” on Jan. 6 that dissolved into insurrection and an attack on American democracy. LaRock’s first response? To call it a false flag event. To this day, he won’t acknowledge that Joe Biden won the election.

    The 33rd is over this clown. We don’t need this extremism in our district. He has terrible judgment in so many ways. He’s an ineffective legislator and he takes ridiculous positions that are out-of-step with his constituents. Vote him OUT in November.

    “Whatever you think happened in the 2020 election” = People are saying…..

    ” lots of folks had doubts based on reports of irregularities from people close to the election process” =

    …… I watch Newsmax and embrace conspiracy theories

    “It is hard to believe that the law in Virginia was changed recently and now allows people to vote without showing an official ID”-

    If Peggy really has concerns as to the integrity of our local elections I suggest she sign up to become an Officer of the Election. It’s a long day for little money and see could see firsthand how well our elections are actually run.

    AFF, bigdaddyva, and timsmith: You just love living under the thumb of The Man, don’t you. You’ll trade liberty for comfort and security provided by the all-powerful government. People like you didn’t settle this nation — they had courage and grit. You have neither. Apparently you think the “disenfranchised” can get a vaccine card, but NOT a valid ID to vote in person.

    Election Day should be just that: One person. One vote. One day.

    Anything more than that leaves the door wide open for ballot harvesting and other voter fraud. And you know it. That’s why you want it.

    50,000 ballots in Arizona have been flagged for further review.


    That’s not to say that all known to be fraudulent, or otherwise invalid, but that’s what the audit found. In one single state.

    In-person voting, with mandatory state-issued ID, is the answer. This shouldn’t even be a question at this point.

    Make election day a national holiday. In person voting, except in sworn, documented circumstances. No fee for state-issued ID.

    Democracy is too good of a system to be short circuited or otherwise not treated with full respect.
