The Electoral Count Act, enacted in 1887, establishes the procedures for counting electoral votes throughout presidential election cycles.
This Act was created in response to a controversy in which multiple states presented alternative slates of electors, causing Congress to be unable to decide for weeks on which set to choose.
Following the 2020 presidential election, some states again provided competing slates of electors, but Mike Pence did not choose those that were not certified by the state.
Senators are now working to identify what should be done if this happens again. The bad news seems to be that this format only benefits Democrats in this instance and the RINOs were there to help pass it.
To contest the results of any single state, the new rules propose that 20 percent of Congress, the House, and Senate, must vote in favor of challenging any state’s electoral votes.
To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about the rules. I believe there should be appropriate measures in place to ensure fast and fair elections. A challenge to a state’s electoral votes requiring the approval of 20% of Congress, seems like a difficult proposition.
If it goes down anything like what transpired in the previous presidential election, I don’t think a state will ever be able to exceed that 20% barrier, especially if it’s a Republican challenging a Democrat who allegedly won an election.
However, I could definitely see that being a possibility if the shoe were on the other foot because Democrats seem to be driven to win at any expense.
When President Trump won his first election in 2016, there were Democrats that challenged several states, including Alabama. See what I mean? Alabama is one of the reddest states in the country, and they had the gumption to challenge the election results.
So, it would not really be surprising to see Nancy Pelosi snap her fingers and insist that every Democrat challenge the results of an election the next time a Republican wins.
We’re losing our liberties and our country to the swamp, one day at a time. What do you plan to do about it?
