24 Louisiana House Republicans are calling on the state’s Republican congressional delegation to reject the electors for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) for six swing states on Jan. 6, “due to fraud in the presidential election.”
Lawmakers will gather on Jan. 6 for a joint session of Congress to formally certify states’ electoral votes for the president of the United States.
The 24 Louisiana House Republicans told Republican members of Louisiana’s congressional delegation in a letter why they believed that Biden-Harris electors from six states—Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—were chosen in violation of the U.S. Constitution and the states’ respective laws.
In the six states, “unelected, unaccountable judges and other unauthorized persons set about to revoke election integrity laws thereby endorsing, enabling, and encouraging election fraud,” the 24 Republicans wrote in a Dec. 28 letter, released on Jan. 1.
“Every fake vote cast by, or on behalf of, an unqualified or non-existent voter for Biden/Harris robs an actual legitimate Trump/Pence voter and cancels out his or her vote,” their letter reads.
The state lawmakers said that when the six states “failed to correct fraud” and put forth their Electoral College slate of electors, it disenfranchises states like Louisiana “whose electors lawfully elected Trump/Pence.”
The letter goes on to outline at least 10 reasons why the representatives believe that the six states’ slates of electors should be rejected. Such reasons include how voters who were not residents of the states “were allowed to vote and their votes were counted,” anomalies in computer software, and how state laws “were ignored, not followed, or changed without the authorization of state legislatures,” in the November 2020 election.
The lawmakers also noted how in some of the states, counting abruptly stopped after midnight on Nov. 3, 2020, and then resumed “without adequate representation of all poll watchers.”
The reasons also included anomalies in select states, such as the case of Georgia where in one precinct, new boxes of ballots were found under a table after poll watchers left to go home.
“With such glaring irregularities, fraud, and abuse, it is of utmost importance to preserve the integrity of our election process and the confidence of the people by rejecting this contrived outcome,” they continued. “We cannot expect our republic to continue if we are willing to compromise the very safeguards put in place through state laws and our Constitution.”
