One thing the far right is really, really good at is openly telling the public their most corrupt intentions. In this case, a speaker at Kandiss Taylor’s Georgia rally declares that Republicans are going to “steal it back” when an audience member repeats the false claim that Democrats stole the election in 2020.
Republicans have been very open about their intentions if they manage to take control of Congress in 2022. They plan to nullify Donald Trump’s second impeachment, turn the January 6th Committee into an attack force against Democratic legislators, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and to carry out vengeance plots against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, in the form of unfounded impeachment efforts.
It’s not just Congress, either. In Pennsylvania, Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee for Governor, has made it clear that if he wins, he plans to appoint a Secretary of State who believes in Donald Trump’s Big Lie, and according to American Bridge, has all but promised to use his power make elections easier for Republicans to win.
In Georgia, Kandiss Taylor is one of several Republican candidates for the Governor, along with incumbent Brian Kemp and Trump-endorsed challenger David Perdue. (The winner of the primary will face off against Democrat Stacy Abrams in November.)
At a rally for Taylor, watch as a speaker is very open about GOP efforts to steal an election.

“If Georgia goes down, if we let [Democrats] steal the election from us,” he begins, but is cut off when someone in the audience shouts out referencing 2020’s Big Lie. Laughing, he continues, “Well, they already did, so, we’re gonna steal it back if we have to.”
