Trump’s Party Hires Top ‘Stop The Steal’ Advocate to Write GOP Platform

As reported by NBC News, the Republican National Committee (RNC) has brought in Ed Martin, a prominent figure in the ‘Stop The Steal’ movement, to assist in drafting the party’s platform for the upcoming 2024 election.

Ed Martin, a former chair of the Missouri Republican Party, gained notoriety for his staunch support of former President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud in the 2020 election. Martin was a vocal advocate for overturning the election results and was present at the rally in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021, where Trump supporters later stormed the U.S. Capitol.

Video footage circulating on social media captured Martin urging Trump loyalists to “stop the steal” and fight to overturn the election results. He was also documented attending Trump’s speech that day and participating in the march to the Capitol.

The decision to involve a key figure from the ‘Stop The Steal’ movement in shaping the GOP platform has raised concerns about the party’s commitment to democratic principles. The platform, which outlines the party’s core beliefs and policy priorities, will serve as a roadmap for Republican candidates in the upcoming election.

By aligning with individuals who fueled the insurrection at the Capitol, Trump and his allies are signaling a willingness to challenge the legitimacy of the 2024 election. Their strategy appears to focus on contesting the results post-election, echoing the tactics employed during the aftermath of the 2020 election.

With the hiring of a prominent ‘Stop The Steal’ advocate, Trump’s camp is laying the groundwork for a contentious election season, suggesting that their fight for power may extend well beyond the ballot box.
