If you are a skeptic like me, you probably didn’t think any senator would ever step forward to object to the fraudulent election of Joe Biden.
You can bet that my GOP senator, Steve Daines, won’t ever risk offending Democrats by publicly voting against certifying the questionable election results from the so-called swing states (hereinafter known as the “steal” states. (UPDATE: I was wrong about Daines: See my apology here.)
Most Republican senators are cut from the same cloth. They don’t like to rock the boat. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is the worst of all, but it turns out there is at least one GOP senator who is willing to fight for his principles.
Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri announced today that he will object to certification of electoral votes in states with disputed elections:
“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.”
Hawley’s decision guarantees a hearing in Congress on the results of at least one state — Pennsylvania. Hopefully as he learns more, Hawley will also object to the results in Georgia and Arizona as well. One senator and one member of the House must object to require a hearing in the question of whether to certify electoral votes from a particular state. Many House members plan to object, but until now no senator would commit.
But where are the rest of the GOP senators? Have they kept their head buried in the stand? Evidence of corruption is in plain view, but they don’t want to “rock the boat”? Honey, the boat is rocking so hard that the GOP senators are going to get thrown overboard whether they do anything or not. They need to grab something solid to fight back against the Democrat thugs, and what’s more solid than the US Constitution?
Democrats are going to say Hawley’s decision doesn’t matter, but don’t you believe it. Vice President Pence has canceled his overseas trip on Jan. 6 because he knows something is happening. Mitch McConnell knows it too, and he is panicking. Supposedly he may try to secure a rules change to prevent Hawley or other senators from protesting. If he succeeds, you can bet the revolution will be coming to a neighborhood near you.
