Rep. Stefanik pledges to object to certifying Electoral College results

Rep. Elise Stefanik announced in a Twitter video Monday that she will object to certifying the Electoral College results Wednesday.

“As the representative for New York’s 21st Congressional District, I plan to object to certain contested electors on January 6,” Stefanik said in the video. “I do not take this action lightly. I am acting to protect our democratic process.”

“Article II and the Twelfth Amendment of the Constitution make clear that I have an obligation to act on this matter if I believe there are serious questions with respect to the Presidential election.”

“I believe those questions exist,” Stefanik continued.

“Tens of millions of Americans are rightly concerned that the 2020 election featured unprecedented voting irregularities, unconstitutional overreach by unelected state officials and judges ignoring state election laws and a fundamental lack of ballot integrity and security.”

Stefanik will join at least 140 other GOP members who are expected to support President Donald Trump’s campaign to overturn the election results.

“As a member of Congress, I am committed to restoring the faith of the American people in our elections, that they are free, fair, secure and according to the United States Constitution,” Stefanik said.

Congress will hold a joint session on Jan. 6 to ratify President-elect Biden’s 306-232 Electoral College win. Objections from GOP members are expected. Majorities in the House and Senate would have to agree for the challenge to be successful.
