Seriously, why won't vice president Pence speak out against president Trump's lies? Pence is a nationally elected official who cannot be fired and who has a constitutional obligation -- a sworn oath -- to protect the country and its democratic system.

This morning, president Trump tweeted this lie:

Why won’t Governor @BrianKempGA, the hapless Governor of Georgia, use his emergency powers, which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes. It will be a “goldmine” of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state....

1. Governor Kemp does not have that power.

2. Signature matching has already taken place twice, once when a voter requested a mail-in ballot and a second time when the ballot was returned. Ballots with mismatched signatures that voters did not "cure" were not counted nor included in the recount.

3. A third signature match is impossible because America has secret ballots and once signatures are verified, ballots are separated from their envelopes. They cannot be reunited.

How long will vice president Pence support Mad King Trump's repeated lies and attempts to subvert democracy? In the end, this will not play well in Pence's bid for the presidency in 2024 when voters are reminded that he failed at his most basic constitutional duties.
