There’s More: State Senators Now Asking Pence to Hold off the Electoral Count
Over 100 — and by some reports (even CNN) over 140 House members — and more than a dozen senators will be objecting to the Electoral Count tomorrow.
Ted Cruz and ten other senators are objecting to the count, and asking for a Commission for ten days to investigate and address the voter fraud and irregularity questions that have been raised and that concern millions of Americans.
Now, they will be joined by state senators who are calling for Vice President Mike Pence to hold off the count.
Georgia State Senator Brandon Beach and some other Republican senators from Georgia have sent a letter to Pence saying that they need more time in their state to investigate the allegations of election fraud, particularly in Fulton County.
“There’s about 16 or 18 of us now that signed this letter to the Vice President … asking him to delay the electoral vote for 10 to 12 days,” Beach told The Epoch Times. “We were going to get it to him tomorrow morning.”
Beach indicated that more senators are likely to sign onto the letter between now and when it’s delivered to Pence.
“People are saying yeah there is something here, there’s something that just doesn’t pass the smell test—that there was some irregularities, there was some impropriety going on in the voting process,” Beach explained.
Beach outlined some of their concerns including more time to do a forensic audit of the machines particularly because of the absence of the state election monitor for a period of time, as well as the incident where poll watchers were told to leave, that counting was going to stop, but then they continued to count without poll watchers there. I’d add to that how we were one of the first to point out how they’d lied about that incident and still have not explained their lies. They said they never told anyone that they were stopping the count, but they did, the media reported it and they were told the same thing the poll watchers were told.
Beach also sent a letter to the Georgia Senate Judiciary Committee and asked for the vote to be postponed.
But it’s not just Georgia, apparently. According to Beach, he says he believes there are letters underway to Pence from other contested states as well, including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Arizona making the same request.
Now, it’s obviously not clear what’s going to happen with Pence and it’s still a long shot, given the fact that the House holds the majority, to stop the count. But it’s pretty hard to deny all the levels of concern being raised.
Meanwhile, thousands of Trump supporters are also going to Washington, D.C. to plead their case and show support for the president, as well, today and tomorrow. As my colleague Jennifer Oliver O’Connell reported, while Mayor Muriel Bowser failed to protect D.C. residents from the rioting Antifa hordes over the summer and they even attacked RNC attendees like Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and his wife, she’s calling in the National Guard to deal with any possible “violence” from Trump supporters. So hold onto your hats, tomorrow is going to be interesting.
