“I was challenged by my staff in my last senior staff meeting to express my views in respect to what happened Jan. 6,” Guy said. “I gave a little broader perspective than what they were looking for.”


In his email, Guy criticized state and local election officials, the media, and a voting machine manufacturer, and repeated unfounded claims of a conspiracy to rig the Nov. 3 presidential election against Trump.

“Monopoly media outlets colluded and actively interfered in the 2020 U.S. presidential election by censoring any news and information that could adversely impact voter opinions of their selected candidate,” Guy wrote in the email, which he provided to syracuse.com.
