Louisiana State Representatives Urge Congressional Republicans to Reject Electors Allegedly Chosen in Fraudulent Manner

Text to Speech
Twenty-four Louisiana state representatives today released a letter they jointly sent to the Republican members of Louisiana's congressional delegation urging them to reject Biden/Harris electors who they say were chosen under fraudulent and unconstitutional systems. The letter was sent on Monday, December 28 to U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy and Congressmen Clay Higgins, Garret Graves, Mike Johnson and Steve Scalise, who also serves as House Minority Whip. The letter was also sent to Congressman-Elect Luke Letlow, just one day before he died of complications related to COVID-19.

The lawmakers laid out in detail why they say Biden/Harris electors from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were chosen in violation of the U.S. Constitution and laws passed by the legislatures of each state.

"Nineteen states have challenged the unconstitutional 'appointment' of the electors for the six states where much of the fraud occurred," State Rep. Beryl Amedee said. "It is clear that roughly half the country disputes the ' results' of the election in these swing states. Louisiana worked hard to protect election integrity. For Congress to casually certify election results from states where blatant fraud was tolerated is offensive and unacceptable."

"We will never have another free or fair election if the fraud is not addressed now. Trust is destroyed in the system," Rep. Kathy Edmonston added.

Rep. Valarie Hodges summarized, "Whether you are Democrat or Republican, honesty in the election booth should matter. The integrity of elections must be preserved if we are to remain a free nation. Every disenfranchised voter shouldcontact their Congressman and Senators immediately."

Congress is set to certify presidential electors when they meet on Wednesday, January 6.
