Vice President Pence ‘Welcomes’ Electors Challenge at Jan. 6 Joint Session of Congress

Vice President Pence

A statement released Saturday from Vice President Mike Pence’s office said he “welcomes” the challenge of electors by House and Senate Republicans on January 6, 2021.

Pence will be presiding over Wednesday’s joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College vote.

“Vice President Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election,” VP Chief of Staff Marc Short stated.

“…The Vice President 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 January 6th.”

Questions about Pence’s stance were raised after Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) filed a suit to nullify part of the 1887 Electoral Count Act. Pence fought against the suit and won.

Gohmert’s strategy could have allowed Pence the ability to either accept or reject Electoral College votes, rather than go through the largely procedural role set forth in the act.

On Wednesday, December 30th, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced he would support a challenge to Biden electors being led by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) on January 6 during the joint session.

By Saturday evening, reports state about 140 GOP Congressional Representatives will join with Brooks. As of this writing (January 2, 2020, 8 p.m. CST), 34 representatives have publicly announced they will challenge electors.

Earlier Saturday Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced he and a group of Senators and Senators-elect plan to challenge the certification of Biden electors from states with significant election fraud concerns on Wednesday if their request for an immediate appointment of a commission to study the election (as precedent was set in the 1877 presidential election) is not met.

  1. Mike Pence is a good and Godly man. He walks the walk and does the talk. One thing worries me about a statement he made a few weeks ago. His faith drives his belief that all humans, including politicians, are inherently good, and will eventually make the right decisions. If he lets his faith, and this one particular belief affects his decision regarding the electoral theft of this election, then he will be the turncoat that causes the death of this republic. Being a Christian my whole life, and even more so now, I do not believe like Pence does. If all of us are inherently good, then we would not have had Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, or Pelosi and Schumer. Let us hope Pence does what is right for this country, no matter who’s “feeling” it hurts.
