For those wondering what lengths a losing MAGA candidate for office might resort to when all other options have failed, we now know.
Solomon Pena of New Mexico, a losing candidate for a position in state government, first tried calling his defeat rigged and the election a fraud.
When that went nowhere, he hired some thugs to shoot up the residence of his opponent, just missing a 10-year-old girl inside.
Pena had taken it upon himself to adjudicate his loss and hand out vigilante justice, if only in his addled state of mind.
And now we’re all left to wonder if this is the future of American elections. If so, it seems our Founding Fathers wasted a lot of time and effort in forming a more perfect union.
If New Mexico is any indication of what we can expect in the coming years, the American people are in no need of a democracy when a banana republic will suffice.
