GOP lawmakers (of course). I hope more lawmakers have the courage to stand up for what is right. The process requires at least one House representative and one senator. Unfortunately, no senator has yet publicly made the commitment.
22 Dec 2020 – “Another member of Congress has pledged to challenge the Electoral College vote submissions when the Joint Session of Congress meets Jan. 6,” writes Jack Phillips.
“Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas) wrote in a letter to Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) that “I intend to object to the certification of the Electoral College vote submissions on January 6th, and I respectfully ask you to stand with me.”
“There needs to be a full audit of every ballot in states like Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, and Pennsylvania,” Gooden said in his letter, adding that in those states, “widespread reports” of fraud and irregularities have been reported. If the audit isn’t completed, Gooden argued that Congress would be doing the country a disservice by certifying the Electoral College results.
So far, no senators have publicly committed to challenging a state’s results. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) suggested he might do it, while Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) has said the same.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is the House member leading the effort to challenge the Electoral College votes. Rep.-elect Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) joined the list of representatives, calling on other GOP members of Congress to do the same.
