We were wondering where he was…
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and nine other senators and senators-elect have signed on to Missouri GOP Sen. Josh Hawley’s pledge to oppose the slate of electors next week when Congress meets in joint session.
Cruz and the others signed a letter announcing they will vote 'to reject the electors from disputed states as not 'regularly given' and 'lawfully certified'' until a 10-day emergency audit can be conducted in those states.
'We do not take this action lightly. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it,' they wrote.
The letter says that the 2020 election 'featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities,' which far surpassed previous elections and has to be fully investigated.
They also blasted the U.S. Supreme Court — three justices of which were appointed by President Trump at great political cost — for failing to muster the courage to hear legitimate challenges.
'Ideally, the courts would have heard evidence and resolved these claims of serious election fraud. Twice, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to do so; twice, the Court declined,' the letter says.
And now our people find themselves in a situation where an election was obviously stolen but there is no legal recourse.
The senators said they expect that Democrats won’t support them (because their candidate ‘won’) vote and that many Republicans won't either (because they are cowards) but insisted a 'fair and credible audit-conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20-would dramatically improve Americans' faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President.'
The effort will fail, of course, because the people who enabled the steal won’t suddenly grow consciences and everyone else who has at least some power to do the right thing…won’t.
But ‘waiting for the next election’ isn’t an option, either.
