The Speaker has spoken! In the 2004 election, George W. Bush won Ohio by a 2.10 percent margin, despite election simulations giving strong hope for John Kerry.
In the end, the Buckeye state became the deciding factor of the entire election. Sounds familiar!
Ironically enough, Nancy Pelosi supported an objection to Bush winning the state.
“People must have confidence that every vote legally cast will be legally counted and accurately counted,” she said. “But constantly shifting vote tallies in Ohio and malfunctioning electronic machines, which may not have paper receipts, have led to additional loss of confidence by the public.”
“As elected officials, we have a solemn responsibility to improve our election system and its administration. We cannot be here again four years from now discussing the failings of the 2008 election.”
So, what’s different about the 2020 election?
Why don’t elected officials have the same responsibility now that they did back then?
‘Dozens’ of House Republicans May Fight Back Against Electoral College Results
On January 6th, Congress will meet to tally the votes, but not without some level of push-back.
On Monday, Alabama Republican Representative Mo Brooks said “dozens” of House Republicans may object to the final Electoral College results. On January 6th, Congress will meet to tally the votes, but not without some level of push-back. Brooks has declared that the “overwhelming” and “compelling” evidence of “serious voter fraud and theft” is worthy of contesting the 306 electoral votes given to President-elect Joe Biden.
In speaking to Fox & Friends, Brooks said, “there are dozens in the House of Representatives who have reached that conclusion, as I have…we’re going to sponsor and co-sponsor objections to the Electoral College vote returns of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and maybe more depending on where we collectively want to go.”
Brooks says it remains to be seen whether any senators will join them in objecting to the results, as allegedly Senate Republican leaders have suggested its members to not join the efforts. Senator John Thune (R-SD) said, “I just don’t think it makes a lot of sense to put everybody through this when you know what the ultimate outcome is going to be.”
National Review reports “House Republicans may be able to force a vote on certification of the election, though the effort will almost certainly fail in the Democrat-controlled body.” Brooks, nonetheless, believes it’s worth a fight, pushing back against critics. “Well, it is sad to the extent that we’ve got Republicans who are unwilling to do their homework or unwilling to make tough decisions.”
Results currently stand with Trump receiving 232 Electoral Votes, trailing behind former vice president Joe Biden’s 306 votes.

After the footage was released, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp called for a signature audit of votes in his state, even though State Attorney General Brad Raffensperger had already certified the election, and Georgia’s 16 votes in the electoral college, for Joe Biden.
The lawsuit, filed by the Trump campaign and Georgia GOP Chairman David Shafer, alleges that the evidence that has emerged should compel a judge to decertify the results of the presidential election.
Trump’s campaign team has argued that the election is compromised, and that the legislators should use their Article 2 powers to certify their electors for Trump.
