Georgia State Senators Call on Pence to Delay Jan. 6 Electoral Vote

Georgia State Senators Call on Pence to Delay Jan. 6 Electoral Vote. By Bowen Xiao.

Republican state senators in Georgia started a push on Monday to delay the Jan. 6 counting of electoral votes. At least a dozen have signed a letter directed to Vice President Mike Pence asking him to officially delay the count — and the number is still growing. …

Coincidentally, Jenna Ellis, a senior legal adviser to the Trump campaign and one of Trump’s campaign attorneys suggested on Monday that Pence delay certifying the votes on Jan. 6 and instead ask legislatures in the six contested states to clarify which candidate’s slate of electors should be approved. …

[Sen. Brandon Beach] said he is doing all of this because he wants to get to the bottom of it.

“I’ve had my cell phone on my website and on my senate sites for eight years, I have never received any calls,” he said. “I may have gotten a call here now and then but after this — my phone has blown up, my email has blown up, my text messages have blown up.”

“People are angry, they’re mad, they feel disenfranchised,” he added.

The Democrats must so be hoping this all blows over as soon as possible. Move along, ignore the deplorables.
