Joe Biden is terrified at the election fraud that could be uncovered.
Democrats are trying their best to keep investigations from happening.
Mike Pence said one shocking word that made Joe Biden fear the worst.
The Vice President of the United States has a constitutional duty to certify the election.
However, the certification is unlikely to go as smoothly as Democrats would like since 11 Republican senators are going to “reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’” pending the results of a 10-day “emergency audit.”
“The group is led by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and includes Senators Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Steve Daines of Montana, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Mike Braun of Indiana, and Senators-elect Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama,” The New York Times reported.
“We do not take this action lightly. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it,” Cruz wrote, noting that he and the other senators who had joined him believe that the 2020 presidential election “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities.”
They are hoping to force the Supreme Court to take up the case since it has already twice refused to hear the evidence of voter fraud.
The senators argue that they are following the historic precedent that was established after the election of 1877, which was marred by serious allegations of fraud.
“In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy. Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices-to consider and resolve the disputed returns,” the group said.
“Once [the audit is] completed, individual states would evaluate the commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed,” the 11 senators concluded.
Pence said, issuing a statement through his chief of staff Marc Short, that he “welcomes” the proposed audit.
The statement said that the Vice President “shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election” and “welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on Jan. 6th.”
A serious audit to address the allegations of voter fraud is needed to restore Americans’ faith in the election process.
