From New York Attorney General Letitia James to Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, Black women in government are leading many of the efforts to investigate former President Trump and hold him accountable. I profile five Black women whose work may yet bring hte former president to account.
Georgia is not the only state where Trump attempted to change the election results. He also interfered in Michigan, where he pressured local officials to throw out votes from residents of Detroit and even summoned the state’s Republican legislative leaders to the White House to personally push them to overturn the vote.
As NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDF) President Sherrilyn Ifill helpfully pointed out, Trump’s approach to the election was to challenge votes in areas such as Atlanta, Detroit and Philadelphia. Hmm, what do these places all have in common? (Black people. The answer is Black people.)
