In the wake of Trump's attack on democracy, election officials fear for the future of American elections
When the election office led by Lisa Deeley first came under attack from then-President Donald Trump last year, it was more than a month before Election Day.
Deeley, the chair of Philadelphia's three-member election commission and a Democrat, watched from home as Trump falsely claimed during the first 2020 presidential debate that poll watchers had already been turned away at early voting centers in Philadelphia.
"Bad things happen in Philadelphia," Trump said.
Deeley's cell phone immediately lit up with calls and text messages.
