GOP Senators, led by Cruz, make electoral college stand

Finally, at long last, Republican senators have grown a backbone.

It started with Missouri senator Josh Hawley, who pledged to challenge the electoral college certification in the Senate on January 6. Now more Republicans, led by Texas senator Ted Cruz, are joining.

Fox News reports:

A group of GOP senators led by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, will object to the Jan. 6 certification of the presidential election results next week unless there is an emergency 10-day audit of the results by an electoral commission.

Cruz and the other senators claim the Nov. 3 election “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud and illegal conduct.”

Joining Cruz are Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; James Lankford, R-Okla.; Steve Daines, R-Mont.; John Kennedy, R-La.; Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Mike Braun, R-Ind.; as well as Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo.; Roger Marshall, R-Kansas; Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., and Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala.

Predictably, the media and Democrats are going crazy. But they have no grounds to object.

The lawmakers say there is a precedent of Democrats objecting to election results in 1969, 2001, 2005 and 2019. “And, in both 1969 and 2005, a Democratic Senator joined with a Democratic House Member in forcing votes in both houses on whether to accept the presidential electors being challenged,” they said.

It’s about time. A 10-day emergency audit would restore confidence in our elections – provided that it’s carried out by a fair representation of both parties.
