( Troy, Ohio ) - Congressman Warren Davidson (R-OH 8th District) has announced that he plans to object when Congress convenes Wednesday to tally the results of the presidential election.
Davidson says he will object to electors from states that he says failed to uphold the equal protection principle of one person, one vote, and where that failure made the intent of voters difficult to discern.
A statement from Davidson says:
"Millions of Americans have doubts about the integrity of the 2020 election and look to Congress to represent these concerns in accordance with the Constitution. This isn't about overturning the results of the election; it's about the duty to defend the United States Constitution. As established in Article I, Article II, Article IV, the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 19th Amendments, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, numerous other laws, Congressional precedent, and an abundance of hard-fought court cases: no state is so sovereign that they can - by law or by practice - deny citizens the equal protection of knowing a just and secure election consists of one person, one vote."
Republican Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) has said he won't be a part of those GOP objections. Cincinnati-area GOP Congressman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH 2nd District) told our Bill Cunningham yesterday only that he supports those raising questions about some states' electoral processes.
