UKTN’s Dana Bash asked, “Should Republicans do more to reject conspiracy theories and dangerous rhetoric?”

Scott replied, “I think what we need to do is, first of all, we need to condemn the violence and we need to do everything we can to make sure people are comfortable with this election. We must do everything we can to convince the people that these elections in nine days will be free and fair, that the votes of the people will all be counted fairly, that they will not be watered down. That’s what I’ve been trying to do at the NRC, telling people we’re ready. I tell people to go to the polls and follow polls so you can see that the elections will be fair. We have to work on it every cycle. Get it better every cycle.”

Bash continued: “To be fair, Senator, most of your Republican colleagues, even those in the Trump White House, have said that the 2020 election is free and fair and that the conspiracies of Is it important to people from the top of your party, the former president, to tone down the rhetoric about the conspiracies that could instigate someone who is unhinged like the man who entered Pelosi’s house?”

Scott gave full coverage to both sides: “Dana, I think it’s important that everyone does everything they can to make this election fair. We have Hillary Clinton saying the ’24 election can be stolen. We have Stacey Abrams saying she didn’t lose. My job is to do everything I can to convince people that the elections are fair. I tell people to vote, become a poll watcher, and if we have the chance, let’s make our election laws more secure, make sure you have a voter card, don’t collect ballots, don’t check ballot boxes.”

Bash reminded the audience, “Just to be clear, I want to move on, but there’s no evidence they weren’t fair in 2020.”

Political violence comes from the right and Trump’s big lie is fueling it. Even after a man radicalized by Republican election conspiracies attempted to assassinate the Speaker of the House and violently assaulted her husband, Rick Scott refused to condemn the election lies, falsely equating Hillary Clinton and Stacey Abrams with Trump’s lies were responsible for the 1/6th attack and the attack on Paul Pelosi.

The violence will continue as Republican cowards like Rick Scott refuse to condemn the baseless election conspiracies that Donald Trump and his followers are spreading.

sen. Scott and the Republican Party are a dastardly profile.
