For over seven months, we have been subjected to devastating and relentless mob violence from Antifa, Black Lives Matternd other “activist” wings of the Democratic Party. The violence has destroyed many once-beautiful cities, such as Portland, and Democrats have clandestinely if not overtly supported it (e.g., Rep. Maxine Waters’ barbaric calls for violence against Republicans).

Now some of President Trump’s extreme supporters have followed this tragic example by resorting to violence over the refusal of our “leaders” to properly acknowledge and look into the thousands of instances (including signed affidavits) of election fraud (“Violence, destruction halt certification as Trump supporters storm Capitol,” Web, Jan. 6). The lack of investigation continues despite the fact that some states violated their own election laws and have been unwilling to release voting records, or allow examination of mail-in ballots or the voting machines — even when courts have ordered them to do so. What are they hiding?

In the interest of pacifying this ever-worsening situation, I recommend that Congress establish a bipartisan election-investigation commission to ascertain whether fraud occurred. That way we can put this issue to rest once and for all instead of allowing it to drag on for the next four years and possibly longer. It would be in the best interests of our nation for election officials from the states with obvious irregularities to allow their records, ballots and voting machines to be scrutinized by this commission.

If we don’t, millions of disenfranchised Americans will never again trust our elections or government, and civil war may be imminent.
