Dear Mr. Santa: According to our figures some 26 million mail ballots remain outstanding from the November election. The Bad Orange Man is very unhappy. It is, however, our hope that as a U.S.P.S. contractor you will do better with the special election in Georgia.

Sincerely,

U.S.P.S.

Jan 5 is “election day” in Georgia for the U.S. Senate run-off:

But 1,471,144 have already voted as of Dec. 21. And of those, 569,504 voted by mail out of 1,321,011 mail ballots requested.

Stacey Abrams refused to concede defeat in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race. She said the election process is “rotten and rigged.” Sound familiar?:

“Concession means to say that the process was fair, but when I run an organization that in 10 days between election night and the night I refuse to concede we receive more than 50,000 phone calls for people who were denied the right to vote I am complicit if I say that that system is fair

The Donald couldn’t have said it better himself. As it happens, Abrams helped set the stage for Trump’s defeat in Georgia.
