Congressional Objections to Electoral Votes:
1-2-21, Fox News – Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz with others will object to the Jan. 6, 2021 Congressional Electoral Vote certification of the presidential election of Joe Biden. Ted and following Senators want an emergency ten-day audit of the results by an electoral commission:
The Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley was first to lodge his objection to the election claiming failures of some states -- most notably Pennsylvania -- to follow their own election laws. All 13 of the Senators claim the November 3, 2020 balloting suffered unprecedented voter fraud and illegal conduct.
On Jan 2, 2021 Sen Cruz’s group of lawmakers said in a statement. "By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes. In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy. Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission -- consisting of five Senators, five House Members and five Supreme Court Justices -- to consider and resolve the disputed returns."
They're modern historical precedent of Democrats objecting to election results; it occurred in 1969, 2001, 2005 and 2019. In both 1969 and 2005 a Democrat Senator joined with a Democrat House Member in forcing votes in both houses on whether to accept the presidential electors.
"We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed."
If an Electoral Commission doesn’t happen, Cruz and lawmakers intend to vote against certification. In a statement they said: "Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6, 2020 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed."
President Trump has repeatedly claimed he beat Biden, who flipped a number of states fraudulently by corrupt voter manipulation and destroying Trump votes to gain the necessary 270 Electoral College votes that have many states being examined.
If the group of GOP lawmakers object in Congress and the Senate, the joint session of Congress would be dissolved. Causing the House and Senate to then meet separately to debate any contested state’s electoral votes. Then each body would vote whether to accept or reject any contested votes with the House and Senate then reconvening the joint session.
When they revote by States – one vote per state [Republicans hold majority of states] many of Biden's contested states’ electoral votes may be thrown out. If that happens … President Trump should win four more years.
