Sen. Hawley Will Object During Electoral College Certification Process On Jan 6
Wednesday, December 30, 2020
Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) announced he will object during the Electoral College certification process on January 6, 2021. Senator Hawley will object to highlight the failure of some states, including notably Pennsylvania, to follow their own election laws as well as the unprecedented interference of Big Tech monopolies in the election. He will call for Congress to launch a full investigation of potential fraud and election irregularities and enact election integrity measures.
Democrats have previously objected during the certification process for the 2004 and 2016 Presidential elections.
Senator Hawley said, “Following both the 2004 and 2016 elections, Democrats in Congress objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about election integrity. They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did. And they were entitled to do so. But now those of us concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do the same.
“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws. And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act.
“For these reasons, I will follow the same practice Democrat members of Congress have in years past and object during the certification process on January 6 to raise these critical issues.”
Heh. Apparently he’s a “constitutional lawyer”.
Some of the responses on Twitter:
There was no fraud. Just because millions of voters believe the lies of the president about fraud does not mean those voters deserve to be heard. This argument makes no sense.
Russia thanks you for your continued attacks on America.
Millions of voters are concerned that corrupt prosecutor Hosh Jawline is a massive phoney who should resign immediately. You should resign on their behalf.
Step 1: Spread lies about election fraud, thereby convincing millions of voters that the election was stolen.
Step 2. Block certification of the election, on the grounds that millions of voters think it was stolen.
You’re trash. You deserve to be tried for sedition.
Why are you trying to erase my vote and the vote of 80 million Americans?
There was no election fraud, and you know it.
You are doing damage to our democracy that cannot be undone.
The ladder climber doesn’t give a shit.
Because @HawleyMO is a seditious prick. I hope we start taking sedition by US Senators and House Members more seriously. They should held to a higher standard with either a prison term or they dismissal from this country immediately.
There is no evidentiary basis for your effort to overturn the 2020 election results. That people have been lied to & their confusion weaponized does not make that weaponization any less of an attack on the Constitution of the United States. This is a criminal abuse of office.
“A minority of citizens has been convinced by a propaganda machine that they couldn’t possibly have lost and I have no choice but to indulge their delusional entitled white privilege!”
I speak for 80 million plus Americans when I say you can eat a pile of shit and then go fuck yourself.
Remember to dress like a clown on January 6.
Object to what based upon what? There’s been over 60 court cases which have found zero evidence of election integrity issues or fraud.
You’re never going to be president, josh. No matter how much you debase yourself, no matter how many boots you lick. Never
And on and on…
