Eastman’s trip appears to be part of a growing trend of Big Lie-supporting Republicans making the pilgrimage to an “audit” that has become largely a laughing stock to anyone outside of the rabidly pro-Trump media world. Professional auditors who’ve weighed in on the process have likened it more to a “grift,” “clown show” or “fraudit”
They’ve built a brand on spreading these kinds of lies and fearmongering to their constituents and they, just like the president, cannot shrug away the responsibility for the results of their actions.
“Flying from Alaska to be in the back of this crowd is the same as being in the front of it.”
Eastman and Reinbold, who’ve both ranked as the worst legislators in our crowd-sourced legislator rankings, get top billing along with Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin in the filing.
Republicans hoped 2020 would not only expand their numbers but make those numbers more obedient. Neither looks to be happening.
What do Reps. Chuck Kopp and David Eastman have in common?
Getting rid of Eastman would be a step to a more controllable House, but he’s not the start or the end of the problem.
‘Rep. Eastman excels at talking in a way that draws attention to himself, but he utterly fails at moving forward conservative policies.’
Should they stay or should they go?
Leave it to Eastman.
