(LibertySociety.com) – On Monday, December 14, the states’ electors cast their votes for the president of the US. Joe Biden was unofficially awarded 306 votes. However, as they say, “It ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings,” or in this case until Congress certifies — and at least one congressman is already objecting.
On January 6, Vice President Mike Pence will preside over a joint session of Congress where he’s slated to tally the Electoral College votes and certify them. And although Democrats believe they have it in the bag, at least one Republican is still fighting for President Donald Trump. During an interview with Fox Business, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said he plans to challenge the votes.
Brooks reminded viewers that it’s happened in the past. In fact, in 2017, Democrats “tried to strike Alabama’s votes for Donald Trump.” It’s well within Congress’ authority to challenge the Electoral College vote. And that is exactly what he intends to do.
