Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina indicated Thursday, December 31, 2020 that he will object to the Electoral College certification.
“As a former Lexington County Election Commissioner, not just as a Member of Congress, I am disgusted at the irregularities in the 2020 presidential election,” Wilson stated. “The failure to validate signatures, the omission of witnesses, the interruption of counting before completion, the denial of poll watchers for access to fully observe, the extension of ballots received beyond Election Day, and the registration of illegal aliens, allowing non-citizens to vote, are all an open invitation for fraud.”
“I had counted on courts to fully consider lawsuits by 18 states and 126 members of Congress, but the Courts have declined to act and it is my duty to object to the Electoral count because irregularities were never addressed.”
Wilson’s congressional district includes all of Lexington, Aiken and Barnwell counties, with parts of Richland and Orangeburg counties.
