And they called a new election so representative democracy isn't completely dead yet.

Except that, before losing their super majority, the general assembly passed a law forcing a primary in this situation, so Harris can get primaried out and they get a fresh, non-cheating candidate.

The way he keeps talking about his son is really wild. Like, he's your son, wtf are you doing? I'm shocked his son isn't like "hey, I got more guys" after all that.
