Statement of General (Ret.) Wesley K. Clark, Major General (Ret.) Paul D. Eaton, and Brigadier General (Ret.) Steven M. Anderson on Vote Counting In Florida, Arizona, and Georgia

"We want to be very clear: Taking actions to stop counting votes is not only un-democratic, it is downright un-American.”

WASHINGTON, DC - Three retired Generals, today, are speaking out against efforts to stop accurately counting votes in three key races that have yet to be called.  The following is a statement from General (US Army, Ret.) Wesley K. Clark, Major General (US Army, Ret.) Paul D. Eaton, and Brigadier General (US Army, Ret.) Steven M. Anderson, on behalf of VoteVets.

“We, the men and women who served under our command, and everyone who served in the Armed Forces swore an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States. Many died, and many were wounded, protecting it, and our sacred right to vote — and see that vote counted.

It is appalling that Trump Republicans in Florida, Arizona and Georgia are fighting to stop accurately counting all the votes, as they lose ground. It dishonors everything our troops have fought for, and died for.

We want to be very clear: Taking actions to stop counting votes is not only un-democratic, it is downright un-American.”
