On Tuesday, Georgia election workers, Wandrea "Shay" Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, delivered emotional testimony detailing how a mob of Donald Trump supporters came after them following the 2020 presidential election. This was after then-President Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani spread lies about them taking part in a voter fraud scheme. These false allegations led to death threats and harassment.

We can expect more of this in the 2022 election in November. What does this mean for American democracy?
