Yesterday I told you that twelve brave Senators will stand against China Mitch McConnell and his deputy John Thune and said they want a Constitutionally permitted review and debate on the election results in key battleground states before they vote to certify the 2020 election and install Harris/Biden in the White House.
Late yesterday both Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina (so glad I didn’t send him a dime as he cried in TV ads every day to send him money so he could get back to the Senate) called the effort a “political stunt,” and Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas said it would “establish unwise precedents.”
It strikes me that it is the Dems who have established unwise precedents with the election process in at least five major Democrat run cities.
Here is Newsweek on Graham (who never did get to the bottom of the DOJ’s role in the Russia Hoax as he promised he would):
Lindsey Graham Attacked by Trump Supporters Online After Condemning GOP Election Challenge
Senator Lindsey Graham is facing online backlash from supporters of President Donald Trump for condemning several GOP congressional members’ efforts to challenge the certification of the Electoral College vote for President-elect Joe Biden.
A coalition of 11 Republican senators and senators-elect promised to oppose Congress in certifying the Electoral College vote this Wednesday, unless a commission is formed to audit the election results in disputed states. The group, led by Ted Cruz of Texas, said it would “reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’… unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed.”
Graham, a Republican who represents South Carolina, criticized the effort as a political stunt on Sunday.
“Proposing a commission at this late date—which has zero chance of becoming reality—is not effectively fighting for President Trump,” he tweeted. “It appears to be more of a political dodge than an effective remedy.”
Needless to say, America Firsters gave Graham a piece of their mind:
“So you used MAGA to get re-elected and now do this? Disgusting,” tweeted Errol Webber, a Republican candidate for governor of California.
There is more here.
As for Tom Cotton, I did like the guy, but I am now done with him.
From The Hill:
Cotton breaks with conservative colleagues who will oppose electoral vote count
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), a possible contender for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, broke with his rivals Sunday night by announcing he will not object to the counting of electoral votes on Jan. 6.
Cotton warned that an effort spearheaded by Sens. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), two other 2024 White House hopefuls, to challenge the electoral votes of several swing states that went for President-elect Joe Biden could “establish unwise precedents.”
While Cotton said he is concerned about how the 2020 presidential election was carried out, such as changes to election law allowing mail-in ballots arriving after Election Day to be counted, he argued it is up to the states and the courts — not Congress — to handle election laws.
We all know that the chance of the Brave Twelve succeeding in keeping Biden from being installed in the White House are almost nil, but what the Twelve are doing is simply saying the facts need to be aired and discussed before a vote is taken and the Constitution anticipated such a situation.
And, they are providing us with a very useful list of wimps.
The pro-Biden-won team:
So to wrap up we know that China Mitch has Republican Senators Thune of SD, Murkowski of Alaska, Romney of Utah, Toomey of Pennsylvania, never-Trumper Ben Sasse of Nebraska and now Cotton of Arkansas, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on his team to shutting the door to any more debate on the great Election Steal of 2020.
The MAGA team fighting for fair elections:
As I said yesterday, Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri will lead a team that wants answers to what happened in key states when the vote count was stopped overnight beginning on November 3rd.
Sens. Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Steve Daines (Mont.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), John Kennedy (La.) and James Lankford (Okla.), as well as Sen.-elects Bill Hagerty (Tenn.), Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.) and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.).
