Even in an election year where standards of fair play seem to plummet with each passing day, last Monday’s attack by Georgia’s U.S. senators marked a new low.

Those are shocking charges for this pair to level at the person — and the office — responsible for overseeing elections here. They’re even more stunning, given that Perdue and Loeffler fired their broadside against a fellow Republican — not that party affiliation should count when the integrity of a core democratic institution is under attack.
