Republican U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler speaks at a rally in Georgia on December 5, 2020.
U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler confirmed Wednesday that she is open to opposing swing states’ electoral votes during a joint session of Congress.
“I haven’t thought about that,” Lovler told reporters in Georgia. “January 6 is a long time. A lot of things can happen between now and then.”
A spokesman for Lofler also spoke to the EPOCH Times when asked if the senator had decided to oppose the electoral college during the January 6, 2021 session. Congress will then convene in joint session to count the electoral votes of the 50 states.
On December 14, the Electoral College of every state in the United States began to vote to confirm the winner. However, due to the problem of election fraud, there was a “double vote” in the six swing states and New Mexico. Two groups of independent electors each voted for their own candidate, making the situation of two groups of electors facing each other in the seven states. The votes will be sent to Parliament.
Lawmakers may object to these electoral votes during a joint session of Congress on January 6, 2021. Objections must be submitted in writing and signed by at least one member of the House of Representatives and one senator. If this is done, the members of the House and Senate will return to their respective chambers to consider whether to accept objections.
Both houses then vote separately on the dissenting opinions. If a majority vote is cast by both houses, the dissenting opinion is upheld and the dissenting electoral vote is immediately null and void.
Senators who oppose some states’ electoral votes during the conference, including Ms Lovler, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson and Rand Paul, have not been ruled out.
Senators Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, John Thune and Roy Blunt have declined to join the legal process.
Spokesmen for other Republican senators and elected senators did not respond to requests for comment.
